I spent a nice morning a few weeks ago with the ladies who created the blog Love, Emoem, an ode really to moms (and dads!) to speak about their experiences, work and style (clearly I'm a goof on that one). They asked a lot of questions about my life and at times I found it difficult to answer because I personally found being a mom really hard, and I didn't do a very good job at juggling that with my illustration career at the time. I vividly recall that when Maggie turned one, it was less about her and more about my unexpected feelings that I made it through.
I'm no longer a new mom, but I'm still learning everyday, and I have my family and friends to thank for that.
