So we are already 3 weeks in to February and holy cow that went by fast! This month brought a lot of change to our family (and I mean a lot), but it is way too much to get in to now, so I will focus on the first and foremost reason, being me going back to work!
I was fortunate enough to be able to take 14 months off from work to have a baby and that was an amazing gift and benefit for our family. I was able to give my body a break from flying to allow my body the proper rest it needed to grow a human being, I was able to be home after having the baby to let my body fully recover before putting any strain on it, and last but not least, I was able to be home for my baby in those very first precious months of life. As I said before, what a blessing, right?!
At my job we are actually allowed to have 23 months off if we choose, and I honestly thought I was going to take those full 23 months off, but with 9 months to spare, I felt ready. I felt ready physically, emotionally, mentally and I knew it would be the best decision for us financially to be able to progress in our financial goals again. Not to mention, I missed traveling and being spoiled on layovers. Sometimes all we need is a day of rest or a day of silence or a day completely to ourselves every once in a while, and that is exactly what I get from this job and what I love about it!
So I started February 1st, I am 3 weeks down and it has been great! I was able to work 3 weekend trips so far and was lucky enough to have my family with me on those. My first two layovers I was joined by my hubby (which made for 2 amazing weekend dates) and then for my third layover I was joined by my entire family! I've had such a blast traveling with my family again and I can't help but feel so incredibly blessed. What a fun and amazing life we lead. I truly love it!
Here is a video of one of my layovers this month.
P.S. Stay tuned for the other big changes that have taken place in our family this month. Xoxo peeps!
