So I am really happy today, not only because it is Friday (yay!) but also because today I officially start a new job (with the same company) but one that allows me complete flexibility to work from home, set my own hours, or come in to the office. I thought it was fitting to title today’s blog post the Vineyard Vines slogan, ‘Every Day Should Feel This Good’ – because today feels amazing – and I am wearing my favorite Vineyard Vines anchor stripe sweater!
Since Adam was born, I’ve wanted to figure out a way to spend more time with him, and often times it seemed like the only solution was to quit my job and stay at home full-time. I didn’t want to do that because I really love my job and I love working in general, but I did want to cut down my hours and have more time with my babe. So I finally got the courage to ask my boss and I was so overwhelmed with the care and consideration she had for me, especially since no one has ever done this before at the company. I think if you really want to change your situation and create more of a work-life balance, don’t assume you can’t – you might be surprised by the answers you get! I did have to give up some (a lot) of perks, but for me, it is all worth it when I can spend that extra hour in the morning and snuggle with my baby, or take an afternoon stroll, an ‘adventure’ as Adam would call it, along with our golden retriever, Briggs.
Stay tuned for more weekday posts on instagram @zahra_sandberg – and more pics of my little Adam!
