I’ve been MIA from posting anything for a while and I apologize. Life has been really busy this last year. So this is to catch you up on what’s been going on.
My first child was born in September and we spent most of the year preparing for her arrival. Renovating the spare bedroom into a nursery, reading pregnancy and baby books and blogs, pinning tons of cute baby clothes and crafts, getting our finances in order and putting money in savings, taking a family vacation (probably the last one for awhile, at least until baby can travel well) and slowing down my business to give me the freedom to take some time off after the baby was born.
Now that I’ve been on maternity leave for 15 weeks I’m finally ready to get back to work. I’m a co-owner, with my mom, of Kards by Kaylee. We make handmade greeting cards and invitations. Until now I haven’t been ready to go back to work.
The lack of a paycheck along with needing a little structure in my life is part of why I’m ready to get back to work but more than that it’s MY business. I built it to have the freedom of being my own boss and making my own schedule. Plus it’s the reason I’m able to stay home with my precious little girl (and my husband works really hard so that I only need a part time income). So now I start the journey of how to get things done with a baby. Wish me luck! If you have any tips or suggestions for being productive with a little one leave me a comment below.
