What a sweet month June has been! Welcoming Milly into our lives has been my greatest joy. I can’t wait to share more about our birth story and life as a new Mama. Everyone tries to prepare you for life with a baby, but there really are no words. It’s something you simply have to experience in your own way, in your own time. Honestly, it’s something I’ve wanted to hold close to my heart and not share publicly until I was ready. This season is such a treasure!

Those first few weeks with no sleep and all the hormones… goodness, I cried at least 5 times a day. I even cried when my mom made me a BLT sandwich. (Not joking!) I must say – I am so, so glad I set one goal for June. I am proud to say I accomplished that goal, and it was certainly wisdom that I didn’t set any additional goals! It felt so freeing to focus all of my attention on simply enjoying this season. Now that July is here, I feel like I’ve turned a corner and am a little more of myself again.

So here I am, learning to set goals in a new way. I believe in setting realistic goals, and for me right now, that means keeping things simple!
