I just noticed I hadn't posted anything yet today, so I figured I'd share a quick little story...
I was talking on the phone to a friend yesterday, and she asked me how my business was going. I started telling her about the latest developments, and she said, "Wow, you're so passionate when you talk about your business, I wish I could find something that I felt that way about."
This was such an interesting comment to me because it was only a few months ago that I, too, never thought I'd find something like this for myself. I spent my days hanging out with the kids and taking care of the house, and other than going to the gym, I wasn't really doing anything just for myself - nothing creative or intellectually challenging.
I've had so many ideas over the years that I haven't followed through on, and once I became a mom I wasn't planning on ever going back to work. But now here I am, staying at home with my kids and also building a business that I'm really passionate about. So it's been nice to step back a little and be grateful for that.
And as I've mentioned before, I hate to post without a picture, so here's a picture I took this afternoon. We haven't been going out much with all this cold weather, so Jack & Emma have been getting really good at using their imaginations and coming up with all kinds of silly games to play - so much like how we played when we were kids, I love it! (That's a dog costume Emma's wearing under her cape!)
