I like going things solo. Staying home for long periods of time has never been a problem for me, and exploring the world on my own is one of my greatest pleasures. The transition to "stay-at-home mom" has been quite a painless one mainly because I'm one of those people who loves 'staying at home'.
There are obviously a couple people, though, with whom I am happy to do the living and exploring with. Colin is my favorite partner, making things funnier, cozier, and more memorable than they would be by myself. And now Sloane, my big eyed, round cheeked sweetheart. Long before she was born I looked forward to introducing her to the world. Simply being together is all she needs, and I am perfectly content to comply. Quietly strolling under treetops and past rushing rivers, pointing out birds and flowers. She is far more pleased to lay on a blanket in the grass than on a mat indoors, and her eyes are the prettiest through the filtered light of a forest canopy. And so these are my new favorite moments. Out there, with her.
