You know what I really love? Companies with a mission behind the brand- especially those that help children. Ever since becoming a mom, I pretty much cry anytime I read/see/hear about a baby suffering. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always hated the thought of any innocent child in distress, but once I had my own I couldn’t even entertain the thought without shedding a tear.
Happy Tuesday, friends! You’ve probably noticed I haven’t been posting as many outfit posts on here lately. Life with two kiddos has just been so insanely hectic! I have yet to try to get through a photoshoot with both my toddler and newborn in tow, but it’s looking like it’ll have to happen in the next few weeks. Being cooped at home has had its advantages, though, because it’s given me time to think about the direction I want to take this blog.

I never really understood the power of convenience until I became a mom. Let’s be honest; until you’ve got a nursing newborn and/or messy toddler on your hands, you don’t bat an eye before purchasing that sheer white blouse.
We all have those outfits that make us feel good; those pieces we automatically gravitate towards even when we’re on day 7 of dry shampoo (moms, you know what I’m talking about) and that leave us with a sense of confidence in ourselves.

Oh, motherhood- where everything you swore you’d never do goes right out the window. I remember when I was pregnant with my first, I told everyone there was noooooo way I’d ever sleep in the same room as my kids. Nope, they were going straight into their cribs in their own rooms from day one!
A couple weeks ago, I turned the big three-oh. THIRTY. Oh my word, I’m not even sure how that happened. My twenties seemed like they were going to last forever, but I suppose all things eventually end, right?
Since I last checked in with you, my little family has grown by an extra two hands and two feet! While I’m not quite ready to share baby B’s birth story yet, I wanted to talk a little bit about our transition from one to two kids.
Happy New Year: it’s officially 2018! It’s hard to believe how fast last year flew by. I guess when you’re a parent, what they say holds true: “The days are long, but the years are short.” That basically sums up the last couple years of my life. Since becoming a mom, it’s amazing how the days can simultaneously drag on and fly by.
But I wouldn’t have it any other way. And from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you all for following along with me on this blogging journey. To be able to combine my passion for style and writing- while taking the time to raise a family- has truly been a dream come true.
Happy Friday, my friends!! I know it’s been awhile since I posted here, but I promise I have good reasons for being MIA. Last week, we had a scary incident that landed me, baby, and my almost 2 year old in the hospital… then on top of that, I came down with a horrible viral flu of some sort. My husband had to take the week off work to basically play house/mom, but as grateful as I am to have such a supportive and helpful spouse, it’s not the easiest thing in the world for me to just sit back and let others take the reigns.
Happy Friday, friends! I don’t know about you guys, but this has been a loooooooong week for me. Between my toddler refusing sleep, keeping up with the house, getting ready for baby no.2, plus my two side hustles… oh, and throw in being a wife and mom… I’m feeling stretched pretty thin. It seems that every time I try to take a moment for self care, something else shows up- usually in the form of a toddler and/or husband. Ha! Story of every mom’s life, am I right?
