Today I was able to take my work poolside and soak up the summertime sun with my niece and handsome boy Jax.
As I sat back and watched them play in the water, it reminded me of how blessed I am to be a small business owner and stay-at-home mama.
After working a 9-5 job for 10+ years and working my way up the corporate ladder, I am still amazed that I am here now. Founder of Wild + You , blogger, wife + mama AND 7 months pregnant with another sweet baby boy!
I started Wild + You (sound familiar?) in May 2020 and I couldn’t be more obsessed with it! It has been so fun and challenging, especially while being 7 months pregnant! Be sure to check out all the darling baby, toddler + mama items we have listed in the shop so far!
After working an office job for 10+ years, I feel extremely blessed to be able to work at home and stay with my babies. I was able to take my work poolside today and soak up the summertime sun at the same time!
I truly enjoyed working my 9-5 for all the years I did. I learned so much about business and myself. The interaction with others, the challenges and really seeing growth within myself. It was an amazing experience and I wouldn’t trade it for the world! But I feel like it was a sign from the universe the day my boss told me we would be closing down our office and relocating to NC. That day challenged me more than anything I could have ever imagined at that time in my life. So many thoughts raced through my mind in those moments- What will I do now? Do we move? Do we stay? Should I start job hunting? It was nerve wracking!
But again, here I am today. Feeling more grateful than ever that C works so hard to support our little family and that I am able to chase dreams that I always thought about but never acted on.
Work used to take me far, but now I can say that I can happily work a little and play a little, EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
What is something you are grateful for today?
