A new year and many reasons to be grateful.
Here I am... getting back in the saddle again.
2012 was quite a year for me... for my family. In June 2012 I celebrated 10 years of marriage and then in October of 2012 I left the home that we worked 7 years to create together. Needless to say, the past few months have been quite a change for me, my life, my children's lives. New home, new routines, new compromises, new ways to build ideas on what the 'norms' are for our family.
Obviously, it will take more than this one quick blog post to explain myself, but I did not want to go on this meandering, extended blog post that would try to explain everything all at once... that would just get boring.
So, I am starting simple (as you know I like to do) with 3 things I am grateful for today... right now... Inspired by The Dame.
1. The simply amazing, kind, generous, sweet people that I choose to surround myself with at this point in my life. Please note that this includes the man I chose to be father of my children, his entire family, our shared friends and my own family and friends. They are all so supportive and loving, myself and my daughters are very lucky to have them all with us.
2. A warm, cozy, and simple place to call home. The hours already spent with my girls here in our new humble abode playing games, singing, playing... just enjoying each other's company have already created memories and smiles for us all to last a lifetime.
3. A new sense of myself. With that comes a sense of peace, calm and contentment. And along with this, the ability to provide my girls with a much more unruffled mother.
Obviously there is way more to my story. My take on socializing after a breakup, co-parenting, 'single' motherhood... all to be explored in the future... in my own life as well as on this blog.
