Today is my first day back to work after six months at home. It’s incredible how fast that time just flew by. I know I’m going to struggle to combine being a mother with working, especially in the beginning, and blogging will simply fall through the cracks. I’ve set a goal of blogging once a week, even if it’s just to share a photo or two, but I’m not sure that plan is realistic. I’ve decided to take a twitter and facebook hiatus so all my spare internet time can be devoted to this blog, though I’m not sure there will be “spare” internet time.
In the mean time, I’ve organized some wonderful guest posts from some amazing friends. They’re generously sharing their stories, skills, photos and journeys. Please check out each new post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, starting today and continuing until I run out of guest writers. Visit their blogs, too, and I think you’ll enjoy getting to know each of them.
Though I’m feeling torn about going back to work, I do love my job. I love exploring the outdoors, working in the greenhouse, experimenting in the laboratory and figuring out how to save the planet alongside my students. They truly give me hope for our future on planet Earth. Still, I could never love my work as much as I love my son.
I’m still accepting guest posts if you’d like to contribute! Find the details here.
