Well that might sound melodramatic. But when I think about all that’s happened this past year I have to admit: it was a big one. The biggest one yet. So many ups. A baby. A puppy. A new house. Quality time with loved ones. Lots of travels. But also some major downs. A burnout (read more here). Quitting my job. Postpartum recovery. I guess it’s safe to say I learned a lot this year. About myself and about life. What I value most and how to fade out all the noise. I grew stronger than ever and have never been more proud of my body. I also learned how to relax and be in the moment. But most of all, 2017 was life-changing because I became a mother. Me. A mommy. I’m someone’s mom now. That’s right. Luc, I am your mother. A title I wear with all the pride in the world ♥.
Last year I reflected on 2016 by writing a recap, but since typing with a baby boy on your arm isn’t particularly efficient, I decided to keep it short and simple and just share a few of my favorite images of 2017. Cue the happy tears!
