Ringing in 2016!

Happy 2016 sweet friends!  It's been an eternity since I've graced this site- and it feels really good to be back.

A lot happened in 2015.  Too much to recap in one post, but if you follow me on Instagram, you're pretty much up to speed.  For those of you that don't, here are the cliff notes:

I'm a mom to a sweet little girl, Ellie.  She's a whopping 10 months old and officially became the center of my universe the moment we met her.  Since becoming a mom, I've gone back to work and months later, decided all the required travel was no longer for me.  So, I left my job and my sister and I started a small business- One Happinest.

Obviously having a baby was all sorts of spectacular.  But the balance, patience, perseverance and learning that followed, was the true challenge within 2015.  Last year, one of my goals was to enjoy being a mom.  And that I did.  Every. Single. Day.  But that enjoyment was flanked by fear, comparison, monotony, and inadequacy,  Raising a little person is tough work.  But with grace and patience and understanding, we are making great strides in this little life.

I'm so looking forward to a new year, new goals, and new challenges.  Bring on the blank pages and let the adventures begin!
