    […] and this post is week 12 of my 52 photos challenge. I’m linking up with Courtney Kirkland. Google Friend Connect is going away Spring of 2012! So, be sure to subscribe to my RSS feed so you […]

    I’ve learned that sacrifices are necessary. Just be sure to keep hold of what matters most, your family, your sanity, your sleep. It’s tough being a work-at-home mom. I know from experience. Are you getting much paid help? Looking back on my time as a WAHM, that’s something I wish I would have done, rather than buy into everyone’s assumption that because I was technically home I could do everything around the house, with my daughter, and for my full time job.

    Know that we, your readers, will be here regardless. I forgot to link up last week, but I am this week. Your picture is beautiful. Be well!

    Courtney- my heart goes out to you, I know exactly where you are(well not exactly, I haven’t launched my own business yet), but I do understand your struggles. It is hard. Sometimes all consuming, and that to do list just keeps getting bigger the more we try to let go of it. I read about this artist talking to her mentor, lamenting about finding balance. And her mentor said ” you will never get there, so you can let it go”. While not the most positive thing, I myself have seen that just letting go of trying to find balance and focusing on the things that matter most, that balance starts to find a beautiful place in our heart. Kudos for already figuring this out! 🙂

    You’re doing a great job! Balance is so hard. I don’t know if anyone ever really succeeds. But keep up the great work mama! I’m so, so happy for you!

    i have done it all too… working full time, not working at all, working part-time right now. It is all hard. You are so right – either way you are sacrificing something. The internet is the first to go… hang in there. How exciting to be planning a vacation.
