I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the new Valley Woman issue, especially the article "Can valley moms have it all?"
I've lived here for eight years now, having moved out straight from college. While I enjoy living here, coming from the Midwest with no trust fund, I've never really felt like I've fit in all that well here. My husband and I now have a young family and both need to work full time to support ourselves.
I struggle with this every day. I enjoy my job, but wish so desperately that I had more time with my son, more time for my husband, more time for domestic duties and more time for myself. It was so nice to see that I am not the only one experiencing these struggles here.
The whole issue really captured and highlighted the uniqueness of what it is to be a valley woman, and after reading it I am realizing I have much more in common with the valley woman than I thought.
I look forward to more issues. Well done.
