Almost 3 years ago, we moved into our first home. I was a brand new mom – Ryan was barely a month old – and I felt lost. While we didn’t leave the state, we did move about an hour and a half north of where we had been, to a part of the state that neither of us had grown up in or even really near. We knew no one closer than 30/40 minutes from where we were, had no neighbor really, and knew nothing about the area.
Because of that, for the first month or two, every night when Alex went to work I panicked, staying up way too late with scenarios only a sleep-deprived new mom would come up with until he came home. I was home alone with a new baby in a old, wooded little house that creaked and groaned randomly, in a town I didn’t know and I was terrified.
