Translation: I miss you.
Wow, it's been a long while. The last year has brought so many changes, the first and foremost being the birth of my sweet baby daughter. But as you parents out there will know, the first few months of your first child's life alter you in deep and indelible ways.
I won't belabor the ups and inevitable downs of motherhood, as they've been played out on blogs a plenty. Suffice it to say, sometimes being a mom is a lonely adventure. Maybe it's an almost universal experience, but there are moments when I sit with my little girl, and wonder where have I gone. She comes first, and she should, but I sometimes miss the "old" me.
So, here am I again. I need this. I need to write and think and share. The "new" me, the motherly me needs this for her soul. My daughter needs a mother who lives her passions and dreams her dreams. Let's give it another go, shall we?
