the community + education manager for two peas

hey, peas!  wanted to take a moment to check-in with all of you.  i can't believe it's been nearly three months since i left for maternity leave.  we welcomed our second daughter on st. patrick's day which seems like forever ago and yesterday at the same time.  i'm loving every moment of being a mama to two!
 
when i left for maternity leave i had every intention of returning to the office eight weeks later.  i've been blessed in so many ways since taking this position with two peas.  i've worked with so many talented designers and got to know so many members of the community.  i've had the opportunity of corresponding with women - and a few men! - from around the globe and have worked the many generous and kind manufacturers in the business.  with that being said, within the first couple of weeks of being on leave, i began to think that i really should be at home full-time with our daughters and being the mama that i feel they need me to be.  i simply couldn't fathom - and still can't - a way that i could give 100% to both my position at two peas and to my family.  i waited to be sure that this was indeed what i needed to do and have since let kristina know that i needed to resign as the community + education manager for two peas.  two peas is such a family oriented business that jeff and kristina totally knew where i was coming from as parents themselves.  as many of you are also parents, i hope that you do as well.
 
thank you so much for welcoming me with open arms as a leader in the community.  i've laughed with you and i've cried with you as i've read your posts and responded to your peamails.  two peas is such an amazing place and i have no doubt it will continue to be in the years ahead.  it's been "the place" for all things scrapbooking related for so long.  i can't believe i've been a pea for almost eight years!
 
best wishes to all of you as you continue to document your journies through life.  i'm sure i'll be around from time to time - i hope to be scrapbooking more in the very near future. :)
