You Can Have It All…Except Maybe You Can’t

Today marked a year since I started my job as an evening reporter, news anchor and producer. I’d like to say that after a year as a full-time working mom, we finally have everything figured out as a family, and most days our on-point schedule leaves us feeling closer as a family and excited for… Continue reading You Can Have It All…Except Maybe You Can’t
