I took a darkroom photography class a few years ago, before becoming a mother, and I had an awesome teacher. Inked on her forearm was the word try. With a period. Which I think adds loads of meaning.

It was a dark time in my life, and being in the dark (ha) was a wonderful escape. To this day, I can’t get over how those images just appeared on the paper underneath their chemical bath. So beautiful.

And I’ve never stopped thinking about “try.”

Especially now.

Because “try.” will be the one thing I know with absolute certainty that I’ll do once this baby arrives.



remain calm.

Those are just three of the multitude of unknowns for me right now.

My life is about to turn upside-down again.

But I will try. Period.
