The Geriatric Mommy

What was I thinking?

So it's official, I'm now considered a geriatric mommy (Is there a Geriatric Moms Anonymous group I can join?). I'm 35 years old and a (very) new mom and I'm slowly figuring out this whole momming business. In the midst of figuring this out, I'm also working from home because I figured I'd be able… Continue reading What was I thinking?

The First Year of Motherhood and a Global Pandemic

It is a scary time for a lot of people, but I find myself searching for gratitude. I am grateful for my… Continue reading The First Year of Motherhood and a Global Pandemic

Since my pregnancy was relatively easy in my first trimester, I thought the travels would be a breeze. The initial decision to visit Spain was made in October of last year. My longtime friend, Jason,… Continue reading A Pregnant Woman in Spain

Our Biggest Adventure is Beginning

Originally I was going to write this post as more of a diary, but it was getting really long, so I'm keeping that part to myself! It has been a while since I've written anything that wasn't work-related. Part of that is just sheer exhaustion and I can only muster up the energy to do… Continue reading Our Biggest Adventure is Beginning
