First of all, Happy Father’s Day to Jason – the first-time dad at our house! He’s a natural in every sense of the word and Coleman is a lucky little munchkin to have him as his father (including his ability to think up crazy stunts and tricks involving children – like only a dad can do). Thanks for all you do and are, Jas. XOXO
I had a great week last week. I feel fabulous and totally like my old self again – wait, maybe not like my old self because I have learned a lot of things having to deal with a month of postpartum issues. So, I would say that I’m better than my old self. I appreciate the encouragement – that makes such a difference when we are going through challenges in our lives. Thank you.
With this in mind, I decided to pat myself on my back for getting through my postpartum fairly unscathed. We all need to remember to celebrate our victories – no matter their size or scope of impact. Consider putting this quote from our Big Picture Scrapbooking workshop “A Life Well Crafted” in a place that will remind you to pay attention to each triumph in your life, even if that means simply making it through another day. And remember: when you print – unmark the “fit to page” setting to get the actual size of the image instead of a full-page version.
I’m back. Healed, more aware of who I am and what I can do but all in all, better than ever before. I can’t explain the gratitude I feel for being able to spot the signs of postpartum so quickly – within days, in fact. By doing so I was able to change direction almost immediately and head back to the real me much faster than if I had let things linger. I’m so grateful for that.
Thanks everyone! Enjoy the download and take a minute to pat yourself on your back with me – and celebrate you!
