In other news that seems less insane – I’m thrilled to be over at My Life in Transition today. Julia asked me to be a part of her awesome new series called Moms Making it Work. It’s all about supporting one another as moms and telling our stories. I’m sharing the nitty gritty about how I went from working full-time in an office to being at home full-time. Trust me, it’s a bit of a novel. But lots of things I’ve not really discussed on the blog.
You can also check out the other contributors – there are some amazing moms in this group with tons of great tips for making it work. I’ve been so inspired following along.
