The "in-between" is a place for everything else. My in-between is finding a way to not lose my self in my role of mother.
It's remembering that my parents raised me to be independent and that I inherited my father's work ethic.
It's knowing that in my 20s I lived exactly the life I was meant to live, and that in my 40s I can appreciate that and share it with others.
It's knowing that I am, and will forever be, Mommy to three adorable children but that I'm still Tracy.
It's recognizing my own imperfection- something I experience all too often in the kitchen.
