We all ask this question from time to time but for me, this question wasn’t meant to be asked yet. I already had a plan! I was meant to be revelling in motherhood full time.
But life doesn’t always go to plan.
A second child has eluded our family. And so, with our daughter starting kinder the time had indeed come when I needed to decide where to from here? When I needed to accept and embrace what is.
I adored being a stay at home mum. Sure, there were “bad days at the office” but overall I had quite honestly never been happier. When our daughter was born I hadn’t expected the changes that took place to my very essence. My ideas around parenting were flipped on their head the moment I held her for the first time.
So when it came to returning to work I needed to think outside the square.
Think Vanessa, THINK!
Ideas were explored, and one stuck. “This could work” my husband said. That was one and a half years ago. We remain hopeful of another child blessing our family but until then, I am seizing the day and working on a creation of another kind, albumz.
Turning my passion for photography into creating professionally printed photo books has been my saving grace. And I’m pleased to say that through terrible disappointment and heartache something wonderful has been created. Its not what I had intended, but it is a creation I will nurture all the same.
It’s never been easier to take happy snaps than it is today with the wonderful invention of smartphones. And now, thanks to albumz, its never been easier to create beautiful, professionally printed photo books. Just hand over your photos and let albumz take care of the rest.
To celebrate the launch of albumz’ spanking new website, one lucky person will win a $250 gift voucher! Check out albumz’ Facebook page to be in it, https://www.facebook.com/albumzphotobooks.
