MPA Graduate!!

Hey World!

Boy has the past month been the most challenging in my adult life. I graduated earlier this month with my Master of Public Administration…

I did it!

I was offered (and accepted!) an awesome career opportunity and we have to move 3 hours away to the state capital in one month!

woah

I am excited and absolutely nervous about this change but I look forward to it! This is a milestone that I embrace for myself, my husband and our daughter. This journey is one I look forward to sharing with you all.

Stay tuned as we embark this change with open arms, tears and laughs. I’m going to miss being close to my family and friends. Now to find a new home 🙂

Mommy and Daughter graduation day!

The search has begun…

Textbooks and Toddlers

I began graduate school when my daughter was 3 months old. While I struggled with the idea internally, I didn’t think that in this day and age I would be met with external (and unwanted!) words that mirrored discouragement. These words came from men and women alike; the young and the older. These words did not take me off of the path I envisioned. It was the perfect time in my life to continue my education and explore my motherhood journey.

My daughter is now 20 months and I am graduating this spring with a Master of Public Administration (woo hoo!). I look forward to the next chapters of my blooming career and I hope that you will continue this journey with me.

Have you been met with resistance in deciding to embark on a demanding education or career move? How about words of encouragement?

Hello world! 2015 and beyond…

Happy New Year!

Welcome to a place where I share my musings, frustrations, fears, joys and more on the many hats I proudly wear. I am not a writer by trade or academics; I’m a woman who loves the beauty of words and how they paint life on paper (in this case your screen).

This blog is for us; ‘Millennial Parentals’. I decided to take my thoughts to a place where I can share the nitty gritty, a place where being a parent is not a compromise. Join me as I try to balance juggle (!) being a mom, wife, student and professional.

In this blog I will share my inner thoughts on it all. My words will ooze with wide array of emotions and yet, I am not here to offend or judge. My stories are shared with love.

I welcome comments, criticism, pretty much it all.

Thank you for tuning in!

P.S. Seriously, don’t be shy 🙂
