I’m no fashion blogger but I’m thinking of doing more fashion post. Nothing too fashionista but just some fashion finds along the way. What do you think? Maybe also sharing some of my favorite fashion inspirations.
“His hands are small but he holds my entire life in his very palms.” We hit a milestone today. My sweet boy has a loose tooth and I’m actually quite emotional about it. It’s like these 6 years flew by without any warning/ From teething to school drop offs. Jesus has a way of reminding you what’s important. It’s so easy to get caught up in today’s crazy hateful world of politics and all that’s wrong with the world and society. But then just like that my oldest is making a transition within his childhood journey. To some loosing a childhood tooth isn’t much. But if you look at it like this it means a lot more. “Just as a garden grows well and pushes flowers from the dark earth into the light, heralding the accomplishment of spring: so a child’s garden of teeth pushes into the light, heralding a whole new phase of childhood. To diminish this “big deal” would be like ignoring the blooming of tulips or myrtle! How could we? Likewise, the celebration of big new teeth gives a child a sense of wonder at his or her own capacities.” So cheers my sweet boy! Mama is so proud of who you are and what you are yet to be.
This past week I turned 33. I cannot say enough about the amount of change that has happened within these last few years. More than anything I’ve grown within my relationship with Christ. I’ve truly learned to accept my current chapter. There’s something special about accepting the now and living in the present moment no matter how difficult that moment may be. I’m here 33! I’m excited, nervous and thankful.
This year like last year brought tons of change. One huge milestone for my children was the start of school. Last year they attended a local “co-op” style school that I was able to participate in the class with them at least once a week. This year school meant Kindergarten, T-K and Preschool. This also meant mama wouldn’t be present in class anymore along with some major schedule adjustments for school drop offs and pick-ups. With that said we needed 3 new car seats and in particular seats that would safely fit into Jason’s hybrid car.
“And in all the stories my daughter shall hear, it will not be princes that slay the dragons, but little girls that believe in magic with big, brave hearts and even bigger dreams. She will learn to rely on her own sword in every battle, in every struggle, in every war because she will learn how to devour every single monster from their very core.”
This past week the Ergobaby team traveled to Vancouver for Come Together Vancouver, our latest community based free events for parents. To say Vancouver was amazing would be an understatement. The beauty alone is breathe taking. Not to mention the air quality, the friendly people and the FOOD!!! We had such a blast exploring Vancouver but more importantly meeting all the parents at our Come Together Event. I can’t wait to bring my family here next year.
A few weeks ago I had the privledge to speak on the Women We Thrive panel for Black Moms Blog. What an honor it was to sit and speak on this panel amongst these beautiful and intelligent women and discuss motherhood, business and branding. I’m forever grateful for these opportunities as I feel I have so much to share on each of the above mentioned topics. My journey throughout motherhood so far as been full of excitement, change and adapting. My journey through business has also been full of excitement, change and adapting. And my journey through branding has been the same. What I realized through speaking and sharing my own story is that I’ve been on the opposite sides of motherhood. From being a stay-at-home mama for 5 years to becoming a mama who works outside the home. And in business from owning my own business to transitioning into the corporate world. Not to mention within branding from being a blogger for years then transitioning to working with influencers and bloggers on the corporate end with Ergobaby. I can definitely say my journey has been full of change but for that I continue to be grateful!!!
