Preparing for the arrival of baby.

Parenting Styles

Simple Salmon

Ive been super busy at work lately with Corporate plan budgets due not in the too distant future…. around about the same time my baby is due haha. Ive been trying to get as much work as I can done before I say goodbye to the corporate world for a year.
