Not Goodbye, Just See You Soon // Our Move to Washington

If you haven’t heard … we’re selling our house in Paso and moving to the Seattle area this summer!

Say whaaaaat? It’s crazy, I know. And I’m equal parts sad and excited for it. But, moving during a pandemic? Not fun. It makes things like saying goodbye and visiting our favorite kid-places “one last time” super complicated. So I’m sayin’ to the heck with all that and already making plans for a mom-cation here when this is all over.

Suzy School Lessons – They Like Me For Me

Now that you know my story about how I ended up here, I want to share something with you that I’ve been writing, deleting and re-writing again.

I intended to present this blog from my role as a writer. But over the years, something else happened entirely.  People saw me instead. For so long, I was programmed to be the journalist – the objective observer. But now, with this blog, you guys saw that it’s just me here.  Even before I saw it myself.

So I’m stepping into my story now, because, this time, it’s my story to tell.

COVID-19. Quarantine. Being stuck inside your house with kids. Worry. Sickness. That on top of all the other mom stuff. It’s been a hard week, friends.

It’s times like these that we can use all the friends we can get.

Enter: SocialMama, an app that launched last year for moms looking for mom friends in their city and beyond.
