Happy New Year, Mama!

2021 was a year, for sure. And though it was certainly marked by challenges, it also brought many blessings. Babies were born, kids graduated from high school and college, and many of us were able to reconnect with our families and communities after a long season of isolation. We began to travel again, started businesses, and seized opportunities for personal growth.
