My apologies for my absence in this space! We are now in our second week in a new house and new city, and I needed all the attention and time and energy I could muster for keeping my health coaching practice going while also packing and moving with a toddler.

I'm a week late in writing this, but he was a week and a half late in getting here, and if I've learned anything in this process, it's that time works differently now.
