July is a busy month for us – our anniversary, Daisy’s birthday (which, in recent years, has fallen by the wayside), and Bea’s birthday are all in the same week. Should this next little girl arrive on the anticipated due date, she’ll come right in the midst of all this.
I didn’t start blogging until Bea was more than a year old, so I have no idea what time management with a newborn will be like. Perhaps things will be very quiet around here as we settle in and get to know this new human. Or, perhaps writing will be a source of refreshment, one I make time for in the midst of this transition. Who knows?
In anticipation for the unknown, I’ve asked a few friends to write guest posts. As we prepare for our new daughter, I’ve been pondering about raising two strong, opinionated, fearless women. The women you’ll meet over the next few weeks are ones who immediately come to mind when I think of the type of woman I want my daughters to look up to. They are women who are successful for many different reasons, who face life with confidence, and who love people and value making this world a better place.
Each Wednesday, I’ll post their story and I hope you’ll enjoy and learn from them as much as I have. And, because this is a small blog and I’m not that technologically savvy, if the baby arrives on a Tuesday or a Wednesday, a post may or may not go up… I’ll do my best.
In the meantime, if you’d like to contribute an essay about your own journey or a woman who has influenced you, I’d love to hear it! Email me at anniehrim @gmail.com and I’ll consider it for this series.
