We are well into the new year (10 days in). Coming out of the busyness of the holidays and New Year, I was left drained physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Musings of a [Not Yet] Mommy | Chapter 9

So this “Not Yet” Mommy is currently on vacation in my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia (and just as a side note, it is definitely a crazy, emotional walk down memory lane…I blame the pregnancy hormones, honestly).  But there is one quick bit of news I’d like to share with you all… …we did find out… Continue reading Musings of a [Not Yet] Mommy | Chapter 9
