My Dream Now (BIG ANNOUNCEMENT)

When I was about to return to work from maternity leave after having my firstborn, I thought I might want to be a stay at home mom. Since then, I have learned I want, or rather need, to work (whatever that might look like) in order to thrive as a mom, as a wife and as a person.

That being said, I have recently experienced a big career-related change

In some ways, my decision feels like a long time coming. In others, it feels surreal.

I dreamt of attending law school and becoming a lawyer for as long as I can remember. I'm pretty sure it was as close to a lifelong dream as any. To have such a dream realized is indescribable, even if it came with a lot of student loan debt... I do not for one second regret any of my decisions. I am a true believer that each one has led me to the life I live today.

The thing is ... that was my dream, then.

They are my dream, now.

These days, my life revolves around being the best mom I can be to my two babies and building upon a healthy marriage with my husband. That means I want to spend more time with my babies, and less time away from them. I want to bring them to play dates and story time, to make their meals, and to teach them things. I want to be more involved in their everyday lives, not just on weekends. I want to be more present. 

That is why I have made a big decision and big life change. 

I am leaving the legal field and I am transitioning to a work-from-home communications position (within the same organization).

My husband and I work hard and work together to create a life for our kids that is everything we hope it could be. So, I will continue working, just in a different capacity. I am nervous, excited, anxious and every other feeling you can imagine would come with a change this big.

Mostly, I am grateful to my employers for this opportunity, and to my husband and family for their support.

Boys, Mommy will be home with you full-time!
