While I'm sad to leave my job and all the friends I've made, I'm really looking forward to getting quality time with the girls. Being able to drop Lucy off at school and pick her up is so important to me. Also being there to witness Mila's milestones will be amazing (I missed a handful of them when Lucy was little due to being at work). My mornings won't be so rushed and I won't be running out the door before the girls are even awake. My evenings won't just consist of rushing home from work to a flurry of nursing, dinner, bath time, books and bed. Lucy is so excited and we've been having a mini countdown this week with how many days until mommy is home with her. As I said, I have nothing part time lined up yet, but I'm excited for the opportunities that may come. You may have seen on my Instagram account that I recently applied for a position with Design*Sponge. While I didn't get the position, I did make it to the second round and in the top 10 candidates. That alone is pretty darn exciting for me.
So what does this mean for the blog? Being home more will also allow me to focus a lot on our house and continue to keep the projects coming (on a much tighter, challenging budget might I add). I'm looking forward to being able to posting better quality, more innovative posts and projects. I have big plans to freshen up the layout and look of the blog, I've even considered shortening or changing up the name a bit. (Nothing definite!)
Thank you to all of you who read this blog on a daily or weekly basis. Look forward to bigger and better things to come! Happy Friday :)
