Parker is outside riding his bike and laughing like a wild man. Radley and I are staring out the window watching the shadows the sun is casting through the trees. It’s simple. It’s perfect. No place to be, no rushing, no schedules or to do lists. Just living. Watching my babies enjoy themselves. Stripped down to bare basics. Just enjoying themselves. This is life🌴👶🏻💕
Bohemian and Independent styles have been all the rage in bridal for a while now. One of the greatest advantages of that is that you can find a gorgeous wedding dress well under the $200 range!! And that means you can spend the extra cash you save on other wedding festivities!
Its love letter Wednesday again. And this week I just want to share how easy it is to spread a little joy. You don’t have to write long elaborate letters in envelopes, you can just write a sentence on a note card.
I was in TJMaxx the other day and I saw this really pretty wrapping paper! Which was actually a great thing because I was trying to think of an excuse to buy it which reminded me that my sisters birthday was coming up!! So after wrapping her presents I didn’t want to waste the scraps.
So I just glued the note cards onto the scrap and then cut the note cards off after writing my love notes!
I like to keep a couple note cards in my bag at all times, you never know when a good time to spread a little love will come along!
Remember if you have instagram to share your love letters: #IOWAMLoveLetters 🙂
I’m really digging on the cute clothes from Boden this month. I also keep passing the Alphabook every time I go to target. I need to get it for Parker ASAP!
What are you wishing for this month?
Dear Moms, We all are beautiful. We are all important. As mother’s we have a very special role to play. Unfortunately a lot of us get so caught up in this role that we forget about us and become only
artist, writer, rock climber, yogi, MOM. Let me re-instill a fact, that I’m sure we all know deep down to be true. That our most important gift to our children is sharing with them our lives and our love. A happy fulfilled role model is better than an unsatisfied mother who feels resentment for giving up her dreams. Juggling children and hobbies, isn’t always easy but we don’t have to feel guilty. You can still be that fun loving person you were before baby. So you were a wild and crazy party girl?? Okay, so you may need to put away the sequin mini skirts and keg stands every night 😛 But you can still be your care-free, energetic self. Just a more kid friendly version of it. If you love to paint or write. Invite your children to join you. Never give up on your dreams. Never give up on who you are. Share your interest and hobbies with your children. Share your love. Mother will always be your number one title, but remember you can also be artist, writer, rock climber, yogi, whatever your heart desires….. ❤
I still can’t comprehend it, even as I write it. In a little over a month I will be holding my precious baby boy: Parker!
It’s a miracle we ever decided on a name! But more on that later.
I’m not going to lie. I’m scared. It’s not something I was expecting and even if I had been expecting it, I’m sure I’d still be scared.
I don’t think all the preparation in the world prepares you for having a child. I remember the day I found out. I cried more than I’ve ever cried in my life. It was an emotion that’s hard to describe.
I remember having to tell Keith. I just remember thinking the worst. But it was just a wonderful sense of relief when his answer was an excited, “I’m going to be a dad!”
Of course there were other things that were said and we were both nervous and apprehensive. And it felt like some what of a roller coaster to get to where we are now.
But I can honestly say its all worth it. He’s not even here yet and I can tell you its all worth it! The joy and love he’s brought into our lives already is immeasurable.
(the day we found out we were having a boy!)
