December 12 11

Last week I started a brand-new job.

And then I disappeared for an entire week.

There were emails I ignored. There were TV shows I didn’t watch. There were DMs on Twitter wanting to make sure I was still breathing. There were morning commutes I was still taking. There was traffic. There were children who I didn’t see. There were events I had to miss. There were about eighty-nine cups of coffee. There were nights I fell asleep mid-type. There were showers that I didn’t take. There were some tears shed.


It was all 1000% worth it.

I am so proud to be just a wee part of a bigger team that was able to create this:

You guys. I REALLY wish I could take more credit for this. But there are people who didn’t sleep for months to make this happen.

I only hopped on board this bandwagon at the very end. But I am so incredibly proud of it. It’s user-friendly, it’s clean, it’s gorgeous.

It’s the brand spanking new Yummy Mummy Club. This is the place that I will get to use my magical elf editing fingers from now on.

And this morning, I sent my little ones off to school after having a lovely breakfast with them.

I made myself a giant cup of coffee.

And then I sat down at my new desk.

And I worked on fancy and important editor-in-chiefly things.

And I even wrote this—my very first post on my very new blog.

I cannot think of anything better.

  1. yay!

  7. I tried to open your new website from work and it’s blocked! It is saying that the site is R rated.

  10. It looks INCREDIBLE. I love it so, so much. I’ve been a terrible blog reader this last week or so and I haven’t spent much time checking it out. I MUST DO JUST THAT, THOUGH.
