As y'all can tell by the picture, my husband and I recently announced to our friends and family that we are expecting our first child this July! I wanted to write a little more about what our announcement means for me, the Leigh-part of Katie Leigh.
One of the reasons I wanted to start this business with my best friend was to escape the politics of the North Carolina teaching world but another major reason was the freedom that being a business owner provides. I use the term 'freedom' loosely because there has been more work than I could ever imagine getting Katie Leigh off the ground, but there is a flexibility that comes with owning your own business. This flexibility goes along with something else I've always wanted, to be a mom.
*Our friends reaction at the Christmas Party in .gif form...everyone say "We're having a baby"
I'll probably have a better understanding of what being a Mompreneur means in a few months, but for now it is all excitement! I look forward to the day when I'll be a mom and at the same time contribute to the financial well-being of my family.
I'll do my best to keep ya'll updated along the way and if anyone has any advice on being a Mom, being an entrepreneur or being a Mompreneur I'd love to hear it in the comments below or shoot me a tweet @leighellenr
**Bonus** How We Made the Baby Announcement Signs
Since my husband and I aren't the artistic type we ended up making the signs on the computer and taking them to FedEx-Kinkos to print out. My loving husband provided us with a link to the Photoshop template files you can use to make your own signs. Just click the dropbox link for the .zip file. Enjoy!
