This picture (by my 1708-mate, Josh McCullock) made me laugh. Then it made me think about how I work. Although I sit at this desk on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays looking at least halfway decent, I spend much more time standing with a cup of coffee in my kitchen - laptop on the counter and my toddler playing with her dolly, or more likely ripping up a newspaper that she found in the living room.
I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, an entrepreneur, a volunteer and a friend making a go of having it all.
Speaking of being a mom, here are some of Daltrey's one year photos by the ever talented Brandi Traina of Traina Photography. Just realized I never posted them!
