My life today, the day I turn 28, is so different than where I was at last year. I didn’t know we would have a daughter, I didn’t know how much I would love living on the San Francisco peninsula, I didn’t know my ideas about… everything would have shifted so dramatically (I’ve been watching the Supreme Court arguments anxiously hoping that marriage will be an option for everyone no matter their sexual orientation by this summer, a far cry from what you heard me saying in 2008!).
I didn’t know it was possible to be this happy.
I am so grateful that I was born in the place I was born, to the parents who raised me, to get to spend the rest of my life with the person who means the most to me in the world, to have so many things I want and never have to worry about what I need, to have two delightful children that are going to shape me into a better person, to have so much to look forward to in the future.

And a little addendum I’m going to attach to this post for my favorite friend Paige, who we left behind in Chicago and that I miss so much:
Looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift for a friend, your wife, or yourself (: ?
Saren Loosli, the founder of PowerofMoms.com is coming to Chicago to lead a premium retreat June 3rd from 9:30 to 12:30 with a Yoga session after. Located in a beautiful mansion in Beverly, IL (Southside of Chicago), the retreat will focus on mothers bringing more peace, purpose, order and joy into their lives.
Like members of any other serious profession, mothers need opportunities to network with other moms and learn and share “best practices” in their field.
