2016 has been a whirlwind of a year to say the least. I am a New York City native and I was certain I’d always live there until my husband and I got the pleasant news that I was pregnant and due in May 2016. All of a sudden the public transportation I relied on daily, seemed too difficult to imagine navigating with a stroller and newborn. The busyness of the city, which we’d always loved, seemed perfect for us–but not for our baby. Before I knew it, we were packing boxes during my second trimester and headed to Spotsylvania. As much as I love Spotsylvania, Fredericksburg, and the businesses we’ve encountered–it’s been a big adjustment. I’ve realized I’m not the only one experiencing a big adjustment during this season which brings me to my first point.
