This last year was a time of growth. We added a baby (I could stop right there), a home exchange in Copenhagen, a cargo bike. We expanded our park repertoire and tasted savory porridge. I learned how to fold a fitted sheet and deliberately decided to BAN that homemaking tip from my brain and never do it again. We ate a little healthier, sometimes. We visited family in Utah, enjoyed San Francisco's free breakfasts (just kidding, thanks Airbnb!), and explored new spots in L.A. We drove to Yosemite in the morning, and drove back at night. We picked figs and lemons and gum nuts and spent as much time as possible outside. I impulsively cut 12 inches off my hair. We put our little boy on his first school bus, and watched him blossom.
I'm hoping 2017 comes out Brave. 2017 is the year I want to go back to work. A full time writing job will demand as much spunk and courage as this freelancing stay at home mom can muster. But if it feels scary, I should probably do it, right?
Here's to 2017! And if you need a content strategist, full-time copywriter, or social media editor, and you're in the Bay Area, let's talk. I'm available late summer/early Fall, but interested in freelance now.
Thanks so much for following along, readers.
