"I thought I was prepared for parenthood. I read books, followed Instagram accounts and bought things that online forums told me to. But no amount of anxiety-fuelled research could really prepare me for the evolution that parenthood is. Over the past year or so of being a parent, I've learned so much about myself as I evolve right alongside my baby.

I've learned how it feels to love someone in ways I never thought I could. I've also learned how relentless and demanding parenthood is. But it is thanks to these dualities that make parenthood so worth it. So thank you to Cadette Jewelry for inviting me to honour My Evolution, because sometimes I forget to."
