015: Twelve Takeaways From The First Year of Motherhood

Twelve Takeaways From The First Year of Motherhood

This episode is all about a year in review of being a mom.

There is so much to reflect on from the first year with my daughter Sarelle. Countless lessons have been learned and so much knowledge has been gained in a short period of time. Of course, there is so much I could share, but I have condensed it down to 12 things that I think are the biggest takeaways that will benefit any mom or mom-to-be.

I am no expert and I don’t claim to have all the answers. All I can do is share my experiences with you. I know you will relate, and I hope these takeaways guide you on your own motherhood journey.
