My days are full.
Like, really, really full. As in, some days I can’t remember if I used the restroom kind of full. It’s kind of ridiculous and also extremely fun. I have the chance to be a present parent, have a successful career at a bank, work a super-amazing part-time job as a New Orleans Moms Blog Executive Team member, and operate a growing business. Every day is an adventure, so join me in looking at what today brought.
