Speckled Cardi

I’ve officially survived my first two days at work post maternity leave. Being back at the office has been so bizarre. In some ways, it felt like an eternity since I’d been there. (And I’d say the back log probably supports that…) On the other hand, absolutely nothing had changed at all. I settled in pretty quickly almost like I’d never left. It has been easier than I expected in that way, and I’m thankful for it.

However leaving Layla every morning is still hard. On a positive note, I could not be happier to race back home at the end of the day. And Layla’s smiles make me think she’s pretty excited to see me too.

    I’m sure it is a little weird to go back to work, especially after your life has changed so much! Glad it offers some sort of comfort for you 🙂

    Um, you look amazing, Lauren!!! WOW!!! These might be some of my favorite photos of you! I am happy to hear that you are settling back in at work. I know it’s hard to leave Layla, but it does get easier!! Promise.

    It’s always so hard to get back into things after a lot of time off from work – glad you aren’t having too tough of an adjustment.
    Love your comfortable, but polished look!

    That’s the positive side of working with kids, it makes you appreciate them that much more! And, when she’s older, she’ll appreciate you more too. Trust me, there was a point where I thought my daughter hated me just because I was always around her. Then, I got busier and busier with work and now she loves to see me come home 🙂 (ps thanks so much for linking up with The Collective!)
