June so Far: In a Nutshell

How in the WORLD is it the middle of June? Seriously. I don't know where the time is going! This month has been very interesting, from ending my job with AutoTrader.com, to starting my job as Beckett's stay-at-home Mom. I've been feeling all over the place - excited, lucky, nervous, anxious - all over the map! I know this was the right thing and I feel so fortunate to be able to do it, but I would be lying if I said there wasn't a part of me that isn't like OMG, can I do this? Did I make the right decision?? At the end of the day, Beckett is healthy and seems happy - I think i'd feel this way if I was at work - I think it's just feeling like a parent. So that's my inner thought randomness for the day!

It's been a good month all things considered! I am definitely still in transition mode. Here's a few pictures and a few highlights so far:

Definitely enjoying my walks and get togethers! Still working on trying to find the right balance and not overextending myself (or Beckett!) - so far, so good. I'm doing pretty good on my goals! I've read two books (book reviews coming!), organized the closet around what fits, returned all but one set of maternity clothes, took family photos, finalized Beckett's activity plans and made her sensory bags; and researched Amazon Subscribe & Save/coupon sites - WOO! Not too much left to do and am still focusing on #1: taking care of Miss Becks; #2: helping Austin transition into his new job/schedule, etc.; #3: taking care of our sweet puppers and our home! While I know i'm no longer bringing home a paycheck, I still feel like i'm making a difference here at home!

Q: What are a few of your June highlights?!

Q: Do you use Amazon Subscribe & Save??! I've been using it for diapers and wipes, but added several more things to it - hoping I like it!

K - I'm working on my next post now - 2 book reviews and a recipe - woo! I hope you're all well - take care!
