Growth, Birth, and Renewal

My life changed forever on a beautiful sunny day in February.  That is when we welcomed our son into our family.  His birth amazing journey and one of the most transformational experiences of my life.  The transformations keep coming, each new day brings a new lesson, clarity, inspiration, and joy. 

I can't believe how much my son has taught me in the short time that he has been in my life;







unconditional love


He has taught me how to truly be present in each moment, to soak in each sensation, to be able to free myself from expectations and to do lists.  He has given me the ability to relish in our time together, to fully immerse myself into what it is we are doing at any given moment.  The greatest gift he has given me is time, time to be with him, to enjoy his presence, to experience life with the full awareness of all my senses.  It is amazing how simple life is when you look at the world through the lens of a child, the only thing that matters is what is in front of you in the present moment, there is no need to worry about the past or fret about the future.  The only thing you need to do is be present, live fully, experience each sensation, and give in to the moment, to the here and now.

There is so much joy in the simplicity of just living, and being one with my son!

I will be forever grateful to him for all that he has taught me, and I know that I will continue to grow with him as the world unfolds around him.  Our journey has just begun...
