Climbing back up

GP_Jungle_sketch

A fitting image to describe how I've been feeling the past few weeks. I'm climbing back up to my old life, bit by bit. But the view is very different now.

This is a magazine assignment - the first work I took as a new mom. I will finish it on time but it's been a challenge that at times I wish I didn't give myself. I'm finding it necessary and acceptable to simplify things and limit my work expectations. Work/Life balance has taken on a new meaning. I've been saying 'no' and for the most part feeling just fine about it. After all, look who I'm saying yes to every day...

More on what this really means in the weeks to come. I will be attending the Annual Regional NESCBWI conference in a few weeks. I can't wait! Anyone else excited about it? Who's going?
