it's a big day

As of about 8 this morning, I am officially a stay at home mom. With my leave of absence over in a few weeks, I can't imagine leaving Gia and going back to work. So I wrote to HR, and let them know that I'm not returning to work. I couldn't be happier, and I'm so ready to move on to this new chapter in my life. But I gotta admit it...I'm totally freaking out. I spent almost 10 years working my way up that corporate ladder, and with a simple email, it's all gone. Bye bye benefits and so long pension. I'm in no way complaining because I realize that I'm very fortunate that my husbands job allows us to be able to do this. I know that my childs years of needing me are limited and I intend to take advantage of every day with Gia.
Back to the clothes...Gia and I went out for some retail therapy to kill my stress this morning, followed by a lunch date to celebrate.

Congratulations on your decision! But please don't think that ten years of experience is "gone" with one email. Experience sticks with you, and is always relevant. Enjoy your time with the little one!

Ah yes, and that is the cutest sweater! Is it a recent purchase, or from a previous season?
