Bittersweet

Today is a very bittersweet day for me.  I just finished drafting my resignation letter for the job I have been at and loved since 2004.  Even though I have been thinking about leaving since I first held my son in my arms, it only became real when I began typing.  Through my job I met two of my best friends, worked with super talented musicians, and had amazing students.  I loved my job so much which is not something everyone can say.  However, with my husband's crazy work schedule, I know that at this point in our lives, the most important thing is for my son to have one parent at home and I do love my new job of housewife and mommy.  


Phew - ok, thank you for letting me get that off my chest *wipe away a tear*.


Now, onto my outfit-
Tee - Target, Jeans, GAP, Shoes - Shoe Dazzle, Bangles - Coach 

It's basically a tee shirt and jeans, but the rose print and red heels make it a bit more girly.


Check out the cutie patootie in the background!  He's rocking his Yankees track suit. :)

  1. Congratulations on this new stage of your live, changing is always good (even when it hurts a little) but you have more than good reasons.
    The look is cute and your shoes are so, so nice.

  7. You will not regret one single day of being home with your son! My three sons are grown and I we are empty nesters at 42. I have owned businesses and been a stay at home Mom, no question... staying home was the best.
    Have a pretty day!

  10. OH, I am sorry. I totally know what you are going through. THat decision was made for me when the company I worked for 11 years decided to close their San Diego branch a month after I gave birth to my son. I was all about my job. I loved the people I worked and had built such amazing friendships. It was my life. I was ecstatic to be home with my son and if we can financially sustain it would never want to go back. However, even to this day whenever I think about my old job or company or memories of all the fun we had I always feel melancholy.
    You are going to love being a SAHM though. I just know it.

  11. I know how you feel leaving a job that you love. I did just that when I had Emma. I only started working again when she was 20 months old. But you know I didn't regret it. The time I spent with Emma at home was priceless, and there are so many things that you could do and get involved in.

    Good Luck! I know it will be a great experience :)

    Also, you look great!

  12. Any change is hard, but worth it. If you are a working mom or a SAHM there are sacrifices. I'm ready to get back to work, 3 1/2 years of being at home has almost done me in - lol! You will be a great SAHM! Love those red shoes girl!

  13. Staying home is a tough decision for many moms, as is working! Either way, you gain a lot and you lose a bit. I greatly enjoy being a SAHM, and I'm lucky that we can afford for me to stay home, but I also miss the brain-power grownup world of WOH. It's not forever, though: they're only little for a few short years! Enjoy!
