It’s been about a month since I blogged.
I took a little break to focus on some new avenues but I have missed it so much. To me this blog is my therapy, it’s the one thing that I have complete control over in this hectic wild life one mine. So when I teamed up with Lisa Leonard Designs I knew that it had to be my first post after my mini break.
If you haven’t heard of Lisa Leonard yet then be prepared to fall in love.
It is a jewelry line with meaning, which custom pieces to make you swoon. I’m not a huge jewelry person, not because I don’t love it I just never wear it. I wear my wedding rings every day and a diffuser necklace if I want to smell nice, that is about it. Once I got my rings from here though they have become a staple. I love the simple timeless look but I love the meaning behind it even more.
Like me, the owner Lisa is a mom.
She has two beautiful boys and a story that will restore your faith in humanity. She is not just one of the good ones but one of the great ones. You can read her whole story on her blog. So she gets what means the most to us mamas, she knows that at the root of it is family. There are bracelets, rings, necklaces, and earrings which you can create and mold to tell your story!
I chose the stacking rings for my piece and love them.
They are a daily reminder of my 3 favorite people. Somedays I wonder why I do this to myself. Running a blog, being a full-time stay at home mom, a wife, an advocate for better beauty, and retailer with LuLaRoe. I mean honestly, have I completely lost my mind? Then I look down and remember why I do what I do. It’s also the perfect reminder for me to hit pause sometimes and soak in these three souls. At the end of the day, no business or task is more important than being a wife and mother to me and I’m sure you feel the exact same way.
Mama, I see you.
I see you hustling at work then driving like a mad man to catch your kid’s baseball game. I see you pouring your 5th cup of coffee while you are still in pajamas and Mickey is playing in the background. I see you in this mental tug of war between wanting 5 minutes alone and the mom guilt you feel for that. I see you trying to balance it all. Just stop! Take a breath and remember what it is that you do all of this for. Unplug for a day and spend it snuggling and playing with those tiny humans and then take them to grandmas and go on a date with your husband. The world has us programmed to go go go and to want more more more when the reality is we need more of what matters. More time with our family more laughs more friendships. You got this.
