I can say that every year was challenging & the New Year will only mean more obstacles- I mean who can guess what the future will bring right? (Last year it was ‘challenging’ for me because I had a wedding to plan & execute)

But, I will always remember 2015 tenderly as a chapter of immense personal growth for G & I. It was sweet, and it was hard – times of transition are sensitive but fulfilling. Having carried Marlowe in me for 10 months+ taught me so much- what kind of person I want to be for my daughter, what kind of role models will/should be in her life & who I want to surround myself with (supportive & positive family & friends). I have a new sense of empathy for mums & children alike and continue to try & understand how becoming a mom requires entirely new levels of self sacrifice, patience, energy, multi-tasking, and constant self-introspection. The biggest lesson I learned is that balance will never mean what it meant before Marlowe’s arrival, and that’s okay. But I’ve also found that when things seem tough, she provides a kind of perspective that makes everything better. Quite simply, she’s the best part of my day, every day. Marlowe, I can’t wait to meet you & hold you.

I wish you all a very Happy New Year 2016.
