I hope I’m not over sharing here, but lately I have been feeling incredibly overwhelmed at the idea of not only getting ready for baby, but also trying to get Snippet & Ink ready for me to take some sort of maternity leave. What if I can’t get everything done? What if everything falls apart! Sometimes I pile on even more stress by thinking that I shouldn’t stress out so much and should make more time for relaxing and enjoying these last couple months of life pre-baby. It feels like there’s this deadline for Getting Everything Done, and after that comes a whole new life that we can’t possibly plan for. As parents!
Anyway, I suppose I’m sharing this because in the five and a half years since I started Snippet & Ink, I’ve always found that it’s better to be honest and open with my readers instead of just rolling along like everything is perfect. And my guess is I’m not the first person who’s ever felt this way, so I’m trying to just breathe, take things one at a time, remember that what needs to get done will get done, and to be thankful for all the support that Ryan and I have from our loved ones. And thank you, dear readers, for allowing me the space for a post like this – if you have any tips or advice, I’m all ears.
And now, some links for your weekend!
