On Learning, Listening, and Finally Taking Time for Me #beautyis #Mom2Summit

When I stepped out of the minivan and onto the sidewalk of the airport, I felt anxious and nervous. I was second-guessing my decision to go. I hadn’t been away from the baby for more than 24 hours before – what if she needed me? What if my husband couldn’t handle it through the night? […]
