I wasn't sure how much I wanted to share about this, but a major change has happened in my life and it will impact how I blog about fitness, food, travel and anything else on this blog. I have hinted at a monumental shift on this blog several times, and it's finally occurred. Graham and I now have a 2-year-old. Her name is Victoria.

She has been in our care for just a few days, and already I have learned so much. On Day 1 I felt like I could totally do this. I got this. I can be a parent. On Day 2 I felt like a failure, like I can't do this at all. Day 3, after much-needed rest, I felt better. I am guessing that is just how it will be from now on: One day I will feel like I can do everything and the next, not so much. Or maybe it will be one minute I will feel triumphant while the next I will feel lost. Time will tell.

We are excited and slightly terrified at the same time. So I guess that's how we know we are parents.
