The first year with your baby is known to be the most challenging one. That’s what I’ve been hearing all the time. I think it do gets easier but there’s other challenges that you get to face at each stage of parenthood.

If you have followed my instagram a little bit in the past, you have noticed that I was searching for a job. I am very happy to say, that I have found a real good fit and I am very excited for this new chapter to start next month!
