Why, hello. Long time no talk, right?
It's been five months since anything has been written in this space and a lot has happened in that almost half-a-year span. Most importantly and with the largest impact, has been the upcoming birth of our son, for which we couldn't be more excited. Alexander is due to arrive on June 1st and it'll be here before we know it. Secondly, GJ Media Group was acquired by Achilles PR -- the sister company to my husband's sports representation firm, DLE Agency. With everything in-between -- a surgery, Fashion Week, football games, our first Christmas as a married couple (and the last with just the two of us), client launches and a wedding or two -- this website has gone untouched, unchanged and ignored for awhile.
People ask me if I'm finished writing, if the content will evolve to include more "mommy and me" posts or if I was simply on hiatus. Truthfully, the answer is "I don't know."
There's clearly a change happening. We have magazines like Parents, Fit Pregnancy and Family Circle in our mailbox. This body that completed a daunting Ironman now meanders through our neighborhood and takes prenatal yoga classes, which these days count as "fitness." I've found happiness in these changes, because I've accepted them. Whether it's a changing body, a different job or the unknown changes that lie ahead of us, taking each moment, day and week as it comes is helpful.
So, for the time being, I'll continue to write, evolve and grow. You'll most likely see more mommy, baby and family posts, because, to be honest, that's how our life has changed and what we are focused on primarily. Pregnancy style, postpartum fitness, the ways I navigate our changing family and my questionable attempt to work from home, with a baby strapped to my chest in a sling stories forthcoming...
