I will be branded a mother; my husband a father. An array of emotions clashes through my body. I am nervous. I am euphoric. I have peace of mind one day, and the next day I misplace my mind altogether. Despite my mental mayhem, this is the proper time. It is a magical convergence. Selfishly, I want to cage it. I want to own this moment for the remainder of my life. But, to cage it, is to kill it. This moment’s charm exists in its ephemeral nature.

There is a smooth stride in my writing lately. I am narrowing in on a voice which honors this time in my life. I hope to regularly evolve my voice and my writing, but right now, I feel content.

I snapped this photo Tuesday during a feel good moment. Yesterday was a tough day. As I emerge from the haze, I remember what my friend @kellypopernik ’s mother told her about pregnancy / new parenthood, “everyone cries.” I filled my quota and then some yesterday. Here’s to a new morning and feeling more like the person in the photo 👊 || #everythingiscopy
That’s a wrap on my first year of freelance! The days were long, and the year was brief. I have notes upon journals upon scrapes of papers full of learnings and thoughts. I cannot thank the community around me enough for the encouragement and love. You have been my fuel. The link in my bio digs deeper into my reflections from the past year. I hope you enjoy, and as always thank you for reading. Cheers! ✨|| 📸: @rosecoloredcreative
