A lot has developed since then, and while it's been a roller coaster of a ride, I feel like I've grown up a lot. Although I decided to leave my position at Schneider Associates to adjust to the new changes in my life, I am truly grateful for the opportunity I had there and am thankful that my former employees and managers have been so supportive and understanding. I'm glad to have left on a good note, and I'm looking forward to working with them in the future on different projects. Thanks, SA - you guys are the best!
I'll admit I've been having a little bit of a rough time handling so many changes at once. It's not exactly easy to transition from the fun and exciting life of college to so many smack-in-the-face realities of the real world. Still, I have so much confidence in and support from James, my family and my friends, and I know things are going to be great.
I decided to start this blog for several reasons:
- To stay in touch with my some of my normal passions. Hey, I may not be able to participate in the 2008 Boston Half Marathon, but I can still blog!
- To update friends, family, and whoever is interested on my expectant mommy progress,
- And to keep track of the last five months of my pregnancy and the first few years of my daughter-/son-to-be's life in what will become a virtual baby book.
The last reason is primarily for my baby's benefit. I think this blog will prove a very valuable keepsake to my baby lump in the future (mom and dad, this does not at all mean I resent the fact that my baby book was never really filled out :o)
Please feel free to return and check out how my pregnancy is progressing - what I'm thinking, how I'm feeling, growing, etc. I'm looking forward to seeing this blog develop, and I hope you do, too!
