it’s fitbook’s 9th birthday. and on my long to-do list this past week was “write a blog.” but not just any blog; something insightful, meaningful, and worthy of my baby’s b-day. you know those moms who stress over throwing the most elaborate, perfect birthday party, complete with grosgrain ribbon-wrapped cake pops, hand-lettered invitations, and a fairytale-like little pony…for a 2-year old?? well, that would be me. but it’s for a book. albeit, my life’s work + thus far my passion-driven purpose in life, but still…my baby is a (fit)book.
