Another month has come and gone in 2013. I can hardly believe November is tomorrow, and before I know it 2014 will be here!
This year has flown by so fast (which I’ll save for another post another time), but before time slips away from me I wanted to take a few moments to share some of my favorite memories with you from this month. As I look back on the last 10 months, I honestly can say that October has been the biggest point of transition for me; both professionally, internally, and as a mom.
I’ve seen the most change come from Baby Z as he turned 9 months old. His personality, abilities, and teeth are now all finally coming through! The next few months as he turns 1 year are going to be exciting, and I can’t wait to share these times with you!
I’ve also reached some highs and lows when it comes to Dallas Moms Blog. Owning your own business is an emotional roller coaster to say the least. One minute you’re sailing through with amazing ideas, generating revenue, and loving life, and the next moment you’re questioning everything you’ve done. Thanks to some kind words from my husband and friends, I’ve taken time and stepped back and modified my business objectives and believe everything’s now heading back up.
With everything that’s been going on lately with my business and the boys, it would be unusual if my marriage remained unchanged through it all. Tim’s been having a stressful time at work, and my work habits haven’t been easy on us as a family as we try and figure out how to fit my Work-At-Home lifestyle in with my career as a Stay-At-Home Mom. (I only have so many hours in a day!) However, I believe we had a sense of renewal last weekend when we attended Family Life’s Weekend to Remember in Oklahoma City. An event I’ll have to save for a whole other post because I have so much I want to share with you about that weekend. But just know it was Good. . . with a capital G!
As I said, I’m now feeling like my life might finally be starting to come into alignment. Juggling 4 different hats has been difficult, but with some great tips, great boys, and a husband by my side, I’m really looking forward to the end of 2013 and the beginning of a whole new year!
