Coffee is basically my favourite drink.. as many of you already know ๐Ÿ˜‚ โ˜•๏ธ But I really gotta say.. my next fav is my pink drink ๐Ÿ˜ Keeps my energy up + steady even as a new mama! I still need rest + exercise + water BUT I know for a fact I wouldnโ€™t be where I am without this simple drink every morning. Plus all itโ€™s benefits are helping give jinny an incredible boost through my milk supply ๐Ÿ™Œ Such a gift!! โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #kidsforreal #storytellingmama #motherhoodinspired #igmotherhood #parenthood_unveiled #motherhoodsimplified #lifeasmama #parenthood_moments

After 7 years of waiting I recently gave birth to a healthy baby girl. She is the sweetest, most perfect thing we have ever seen. Becoming a first time parent can be really overwhelming! There a so many baby products available in the market. We purchased a baby lounger @sleepyheadofsweden from @fivelittleducksme and immediately my girl fell in love with it. It provided comfort, safety and peace of mind. Mishka will lay in this all day on the couch, the bed, nursery, everywere! If you are looking for a baby must have - this is it! . . . . . #sleepyheadgcc #sleepyheadofsweden #babylounger #motherhoodrising #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhoodsimplified #motherhoodinspired


A new blog post is up featuring this sweet mommy & me session from last Fall. I adored photographing them together. This is such a sweet and special age for little ones and I loved capturing their connection together and of course, helping Mom print some gorgeous framed wall art and a beautiful heirloom album of her favorite images from their session. Link is in my profile to see the rest of this adorable session. ๐Ÿ’•


Iโ€™d say we scored on our science scavenger hunt today. Weโ€™re studying roots this week and a fallen down tree was on the list. The kids were so excited they scrambled up to see the roots up close, despite our protests (flip flops and giant dirt slopes typically donโ€™t mix well ๐Ÿ˜†) Though they did all make it back down in one piece. Truth be told though, it was the grownups having the issue. Not with the hike but with the kid craziness. Theyโ€™ve finally gotten settled during art class, and have become really engaged and focused, despite it being a class of just friends. And two of us are doing the same level of Blossom & Root science and thought it would be so much fun to do science lessons together, especially the scavenger hunts. Well. Iโ€™m here to tell you friends, we thought wrong. I mean, Iโ€™m sure the kids are having fun. But we arenโ€™t. And we sure arenโ€™t getting much science done. These kiddos are just too ready to get some wiggles out after art class, I think. And sometimes directed wiggles arenโ€™t enough. So rather than keep on torturing ourselves, we will just skip the agenda next time and let them play. Weโ€™re always happy to have an excuse to get outside so we will do the science lessons ourselves and get together to let the kids play, uninhibited. Sometimes they know what they need better than we do, and trying to force something different never works out in the end. Stay adaptable, my friends. Thatโ€™s why we do this homeschool thing, yeah? . . . . . . . . #enchantedchildhood #enchantededucation #bravewriterlifestyle #welleducatedheart #intentionalhomeschooling #intentionalmotherhood #homeschoolcollective #learningwell #magicofchildhood #candidchildhood #motherhoodinspired #livinggratitude #motherhoodunplugged #thisishowwehomeschool #handsonlearning #naturalchildhood #literaturebasedlearning #letthemexplore #sandeigofamily #homeschoolersofinstagram #secularhomeschool #homeschoolscience #blossomandroot


Super thankful Alicia caught this picture of Mauri and I! One of the most important things for me with the responsibility of being a mother is the quality time and memories I make with Mauriella. When she grows up she isn't going to remember the expensive toys, the big house, the fancy cars, or anything of materialism. What's going to matter to her is that I got on the ground and acted like a dog with her everytime she asked. I put on the gecko pj mask cape and fought crime, I read every story, baked every recipe, danced to every song, and... got on a spinning wheel and spun as fast as I could and was lucky enough to have it captured in such a pure form showing just how much something so little lights up my babies face. I truly believe that our time and presence are the most valuable and implemental things we as parents can offer our children. Remember they are only babies for a year, toddlers for 4, and children for 8. Prioritize nothing before ensuring that your priority is not just what you are providing for them, but actually is...THEM. . . . . . . #howyouglow #pumpkinpatch #fallyall #cherisheverymoment #instadaily #mommoment #heaventhroughmylens #runwildmychild #instakid #acupofmotherhood #magicofchildhood #stopdropandmom #storytellingmama #parenthoodunveiled #motherhoodinspired #mynameismama #lifeasmama #blessedmama #family #familyovereverything #makingmemories #lovingmyfamily #raisingmytribe #theheartcaptured #thatsdarling #momlifeisthebestlife


Hey friend, You, yes, you. Has anyone told you you're worth it today? You're so worth it. Has anyone told you your butt looks great in those jeans OR sweats because who's judging? It does. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Has anyone told you that this dark season you're going through is going to pass and the sun will shine again? It will friend, I promise it will. Has anyone told you that you matter to the people in your life today? You do. Has anyone told you that every bit of progress matters? Because it does. Has anyone told you that you aren't alone? You are never alone. Has anyone reminded you not to give up on yourself or your dreams? Don't do it, girl, it will be worth it, I promise. Has anyone told you it's time to give up those pants with the hole in the crotch? It's time babe. I gotchyo back. ๐Ÿฅฐ T-shirt from @mumlifethelabel


โ €โ € โ €โ € For the past few days I have been quiet here in the social media world. It was such a busy few weeks leading up to the Thanksgiving weekend, that to be honest, I just finally needed to unplug for a bit. โ €โ € This weekend I spent some serious quality time with my family and enjoyed so many laughs. It was great to connect and ditch the technology for a bit. So many snuggles with my babies, reminiscing with my parents and watching my kids love every moment of the weekend we all got to spend together. This is what I am Thankful for this holiday season... Well honestly thankful for every day!

Ive got a pumpkin, Ive got a pumpkin, Ive got a pumpkin. Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey!โ € โ € We have yet to make it to the pumpkin patch. And I keep seeing all these adorable family photos and Iโ€™m just sitting here waiting on Ryan like any day now sir.

Mom Stuff โ€ข when you have school age kids youโ€™ll get it. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Honestly if you told me that one day Iโ€™ll be sipping wine and clipping out boxtops and actually enjoying it, I would think you were insane! But I can honestly say that I enjoyed this. Time alone while the kids are in bed. An uninterrupted glass of some of my favorite @leelanauwinecellars wine.

This time of year Alex and I start to feel home sick. I only lived in New Jersey for a year and while I was there part of me couldn't wait to move back home to Florida, to what I knew well and all my family and friends but part of me could have stayed there and started our lives there. Alex grew up there so he has many years of wonderful memories of seasons. We wish we had seasons here and we especially feel that in the fall. I honestly get a little teary eyed when we get off of skyping his parents around this time of year. While we miss them and New Jersey year round it is especially noticeable now in the fall months. It is a running joke that not many people like their in laws but I cherish and enjoy my inlaws so much and truly wish they were in the same town to do life with, maybe someday we will live closer. Until then I will look at pictures from Christmas 2018 spent in New Jersey. Family is everything and so is a state is seasons! #helpweremelting #floridafall #newjerseyisbeautiful Bennett and Grandmom


Gratitude Day #1 This isnโ€™t the best photo in the whole world, but itโ€™s about the meaning, isnโ€™t it? The most valuable moments to us hold meaning, and if more posts on Instagram were chalk full of meaning, it would be an interesting world, wouldnโ€™t it? First off, if you arenโ€™t doing the Gratitude challenge with us, start! And join in! We even have prompts for you if you want help with where to start. Todayโ€™s is all about Health. It was raining - I didnโ€™t want to go outside. I didnโ€™t have any running shoes. But John Mark and I had talked about how one of the biggest things in our world to help balance our emotions, is our health, and fitness. The way we move. And I find I go through seasons where my emotions need their own six pack, but at that moment they donโ€™t feel very shredded, more like shredded wheat. I did not want to go in the rain, and I didnโ€™t want to be cold. I didnโ€™t even know where to start. But @johnmarkearle came with Mee. We came up with a game plan-run for a minute, walk for a minute. And we did that 5 times. I thought I was going to die. My lungs were burning, my heart was racing, my legs were like lead. But I did it. I would never have been able to do it without the support from my hubby cheering Mee on. And I feel like thatโ€™s so true for anything we do with our health. If we have one cheerleader or one person who has done the things we want to do, and donโ€™t hold back, at least for Mee, that accountability is what I need to follow through. I was afraid, but I had one thing on my mind. This is going to help Mee in so many other areas of my life. Action. I love this quote I heard today in my mentor zoom call. ใ€ฐ๏ธAction kills fearใ€ฐ๏ธ


TODAY IS #WORLDFOODDAY Did you know that cutting back on your own food waste is one of the few personal habits that can help our planet? You canย  #countmeinย to make a small change.ย Already in our household we meal plan for the month ahead, freeze pre-cooked meals, store foods effectively in both fridge & the freezer as well as only buy what we need and is on the list. Not only this we started our own worm farm to reduce further food wastage going into landfill! ๐Ÿ‘‰ Did you know Australia wastes 7.3 million tonnes of food each year ๐Ÿ‘‰Did you know Australians waste a whopping 298 kgs per person every year ๐Ÿ‘‰Did you know the average household can save up to $3000 by not wasting food. Food waste contributes to climate change by creating 8% of greenhouse gases. Cutting back on our individual food waste is one of the few personal habits that help the planet. Its time to make a simple pledge toย  #Countmeinย by starting with something simple from meal planning, looking at what you have before you buy more or cooking up what youโ€™ve got. Small changes count. Simplify your home and life ๐Ÿ™Œ and start doing your but for our planet ๐ŸŒ @ozharvest #fightfoodwaste #takeaction #climatechange


Do you know who you are when the world goes silent? When the voices of those around you are quiet; when the bright screen of your phone fades; when the noises of the world cease. โ€ข Who are you? When you stop worrying about what others think; when you quit believing that everyone is judging you; when you let go of the irrational fear of not being enough. โ€ข Who is the real you? Behind the noise and chatter; behind the carefully constructed words on the screen; behind the names your peers have labeled you. โ€ข Are you enough? Do you matter? Are you the real you? โ€ข Hi, Iโ€™m Sam ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป And I believe the real you is enough, the real you matters. โค๏ธ


So we got married almost two and a half years ago and I still think about my TWO bouquets often ๐Ÿ˜‚ . . You may be asking yourself, โ€œWhy the heck did this chick have TWO bouquetsโ€? Well thatโ€™s because my Mama is a florist (now retired) so Iโ€™ve been around flowers my whole life and because Iโ€™m extra like that and wanted my wedding flowers to be absolutely amazing. . . Fun fact, I was blessed with the florist gene as well, although itโ€™s just a hobby (at least for now). But I have quite the amazing experience doing wedding/event flowers and spent 3 months in Turks and Caicos as a florist intern! . . Anyways, there really isnโ€™t any rhyme or reason to this post, I just wanted to show off my two bouquets and some of my favorite flowers! But tell me, whatโ€™s your favorite flower? . . . . #weddingflowers #weddingflorist #backyardwedding #weddingbouquet #kingprotea #pompasgrass #anemone #opiumpods #roses #eucalyptus #outdoors #mamasofinstagram #family #motherhood #parenthood #babygirl #letthembelittle #ig_motherhood #motherhoodinspired #uniteinmotherhood #mynameismama #thisisparenthood #thisismotherhood #igmotherhood #momswithcameras #realmotherhood #beyondmotherhood #enchantedmotherhood #ryanhorbanphotography


L E A D I N G BY E X A M P L E - โ € โ € If you had asked me a couple years ago if โ€œAdรฉlieโ€ would be in my future, I would not have guessed it in my wildest dreams. Now, I canโ€™t imagine it any other way.โ € โ € โ € Today, more than ever, Iโ€™m grateful to demonstrate to both my daughters that you can make your dreams a reality even as a stay-at-home mother.โ € โ € โ € Because I want my own daughters to feel confident to achieve their own vision with success. Too often we say things, but yet our actions may reflect the contrary.โ € โ € โ € Looking back on this, it was Motherhood that taught be of the power in me to believe in myself and overcome any challenge on my way. The biggest one, was my own self.โ € โ € โ € Society, culture and our mind has been molding women for so many generations to repeat and do, but why? How can I make an impact or serve others to feel confident of embracing their evolving skin, if Iโ€™m not as well mirroring my own vision.โ € โ € Every day is an adventure awaiting to be conquered and my wish is to help you achieve your most confident self to embrace your evolving skin!โ € โ € Can you relate?

Books that teach lessons of kindness and compassion are, hands-down, my favorite tales to read with the kids. Squeaky and the Stinky Mouse is a lovely book from author Sarah Cash, about a mouse who judges by appearances first and regrets doing so later. This sweet story is available on @amazon - and yes, my daughter was enthralled even with a nose to pick ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚ Thank you, Sarah, for gifting us with this book; weโ€™ve read it dozens of times!


โ€œMiracles are seen in light.โ€ ~@gabbybernstein โœจโœจโœจ When youโ€™re feeling like youโ€™re going to the dark places, you donโ€™t need to climb right to the highest of high vibe feelings.

Friday was gorgeous! The sun was shining and it was over 20 degrees. ๐Ÿ’œ The girls have been having emotional meltdowns lately, so I decided to pick them.up early from school because they can learn wherever they are. Am I right? (So thankful for all the homeschoolers in my life that have reinforced learning outside the box.) Sometimes we just need to slow down, enjoy those warm days when we can, be outside, snuggle goats, play in a silo, eat ice cream before supper and unwind. ๐Ÿ’œ So, a little visit to Mapleton's was just what we needed. ๐Ÿ’œ J - tagged you because of your small pumpkin quest. โ˜บ

These two boys have such a fabulous mumma!


This is Carson. I had him when I was 20 years old and heโ€™s the best thing to ever happen to me. When youโ€™re young with your first kid and hardly any influences on being a mom. You figure everything out the hard way. Iโ€™ve thought he was ready for potty training when he was two and โ€œwanted toโ€ only to go through thousands of undies. Also society told me he was ready to. Society also told me strict discipline along with chores from year one would be the only way for him to learn to be a good person. Guess what fam, we donโ€™t discipline. We talk it out. We use words of affirmation and words of encouragement. But guess what, if someoneโ€™s hurt heโ€™s the first to pick them up. If someoneโ€™s being bullies heโ€™s the first to be their friend. Heโ€™s the first to give money, clothes, or toys to the homeless. And THE very first to ask me how Iโ€™m doing today. Because Iโ€™ve explained everything the good, bad, and ugly. The reality, although not always pretty, he believes he can be the one to help make it better. We donโ€™t discipline because itโ€™s not for us. Talking it out is whatโ€™s for us and heโ€™s the most appreciative and respective person Iโ€™ve even met including adults. Donโ€™t give into society. Only parents know what works for them, just listen to your babies.


Itโ€™s been a month since I started selling on Poshmark and .... I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I DIDNโ€™T START SOONER. Seriously the best platform. My top 3 selling platforms (right now) - Poshmark, Offer up & Facebook marketplace. Super easy to post, write quick descriptions & the ability for hundreds of people to view your items.

โ€œFor what itโ€™s worth, itโ€™s never too late, or to early, to be whoever you want to be. Thereโ€™s no time limit... stop, or start, whenever you want. You can change - or you can stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. (But then again Iโ€™m not a rule follower.) We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you choose to make the best of it. And I hope you see and feel things that startle you. Itโ€™s the only way we grow. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life youโ€™re proud of. & if you find youโ€™re not, I hope you find the courage to start all over again.โ€ โ€” F. Scott Fitzgerald (with a few changes of my own. ๐Ÿ’ซ)

Why raise your daughter to be a lady, when you can raise her to be a warrior? ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ


The last couple of weeks have been hard and overwhelming in motherhood to say the least. Sometimes we have really good days and other days I feel like Iโ€™m failing. The last two weeks, Iโ€™ve felt like I have failed them every single day. Itโ€™s been hard. Whenever I feel overwhelmed or stressed, my instant reaction is to retreat, to not talk about it, to avoid the pain. If something isnโ€™t fun or happy, or fulfilling, I just like to ignore it ๐Ÿ™ˆ #enneagram7 sometimes this serves me, sometimes it doesnโ€™t. But today, Iโ€™m going to talk about it because apparently thatโ€™s what people do to maintain good mental health lol. #sotheytellme Today, I wanna tell you guys two things and I hope it resonates with you. 1. Mamas, know that you are not alone in your struggles. Thereโ€™s a whole community here for you. Please reach out to me any time youโ€™re overwhelmed because I get it! This season of raising these little humans is freaking hard. And I know itโ€™s rewarding too, but itโ€™s exhausting, itโ€™s isolating, itโ€™s overwhelming, itโ€™s a lottt sometimes. And we shouldnโ€™t ever be doing it alone. I am always a listening ear. 2. Make sure you do something that brings you fulfillment, mama. And yes, I know our children are fulfilling. But do something for YOU. I cannot stress this enough. Get a hobby. Start a business. Get a gym membership. Learn a new skill. Knit a scarf. Go get coffee with a friend. Get your nails done. Set goals for yourself. Figure out what makes you come alive and do that. Do what sets your soul on fire. Find that fulfillment. I promise you, you have time for it. In fact, you donโ€™t have time to not fill your cup. As mothers, it is so important that we do this. Well thatโ€™s my rant for tonight. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk. And why yes, that IS diaper cream all over my couch. Lovely, isnโ€™t it? August had fun with that little masterpiece. Washing those cushions is on my long list of things to do this month.


You might be watching my posts and thinking...that skincare biz is cool for her, but I dont want to be "That Girl". . I didn't set out to be "that girl" who sells things and who had a fear of what people would think or say, when I started my business. This right here is what 2.5 years later, and a whole lot of growth looks like! . What I found I AM is: โญ that girl who helps people โญ that girl who shows up for herself and her tribe โญ that girl that lifts others up โญ that girl that is confident in her skin and helps others to be as well โญ that girl who sells incredible and innovative skincare that delivers real results โญ that girl that shows others they can do this too . No shame in my game! I'm proud to be THAT girl, she's pretty dope!! ๐Ÿ˜€


The imperfectly perfect blurry shot of life-in-action over here. โ™ฅ๏ธ . I think my early 30s is a season of noticing. Noticing the grays vs the blacks and whites of life. Noticing how birth support makes me feel. Noticing what it feels like to start over with a new community in a new place. . Noticing that it may take me days to answer a message or to post about a single small bathroom decor update ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™ˆ #comingsoon . But seriously, what are you noticing these days? . . . .


My kinda girl, cheers!

Eleven months (and some) of our bodies being connected. In some ways it seems so long and in others it's seems like I could do this forever. Happy to be here. #breastfeedingisbeautiful

Within the last few weeks, so many people I know have lost loved ones. A mother. A father. A child. Countless babies. Whether they're close friends, friends of friends, or mere acquaintances, my heart has been breaking for them. For those grieving, my prayers are with you. Thank you for sharing your strength and faith. You give me perspective and make my faith stronger through your witness. Hug your family tighter tonight, friends. I may have lost my patience numerous times and debated searching for a nanny for Lucas today... but I'm counting my blessings and keeping them close. ๐Ÿ“ท @allyson.elise ๐Ÿ˜˜

To be clear - these choices are YOURS. And because they belong to you, the decisions you land on are entirely yours, too. No need to justify, negotiate, explain, or have anyone else see it from your point of view. Period. Pregnancy and postpartum (n.) magnets for 'well-meaning' boundary violations and inappropriate inquiries from people who are 'just curious'. Though not the formal definition, we think that it is (unfortunately) a common occurrence in the realm of birth and babies to be on the receiving end of unwelcomed questions and comments. Whether it is body commentary, desire to know and give advice on the behaviors of your baby, or your decisions on very personal, often emotionally charged subjects like sleep, feeding, attachment, and birth choices; it is more likely than not that a person will experience an off-putting question or statement at some point in their parenting experience. The occurrence rate is high, the value of said-comments are low, and the importance of engaging in ensuing conversation is nearly non-existant. In any other time in adulthood would it be appropriate to ask another person how many calories they consume, what their bed looks like, or how they like to fall asleep at night? No. You deserve the same boundaries. So does your baby. So no, Not only are other people NOT owed an explaination, they are also not owed an answer, either. Your truth is yours. Period. Keep on keepin' on. Knowing that even though you feel like you're still trying to figure it all out, YOU know what is best. You're right. You're right on track. And you're right where you need to be. We don't need to know a single decision you're making, to know you're doing it, perfectly.๐Ÿ’œ


Blake, Jude and Quinn. Our little angel babies. Remembering you today and every day.... itโ€™s amazing how social media allows you to connect with others. I have loved seeing all the posts today from fellow parents who have walked this road. Itโ€™s not an easy one, but it is definitely easier when you arenโ€™t walking alone. Thank you to all who have shared their journey. My heart continues to hope for all those still journeying through this tough season. #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #saytheirnames #pregnancylossawareness #pregnancyloss #heavenbabies #angelbabies #vulnerable #empathy #vulnerability #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodunfiltered #motherhoodinspired #motherhoodrising #motherhoodthroughinstagram

Today is pregnancy and infant loss Remembrance Day. Itโ€™s crazy to think that 1 in 4 pregnancies will end in early pregnancy loss, still birth, or the loss of a newborn. I have lost 2 babies in the past year. One during our fertility journey and another during this very pregnancy. Our sweet baby boy has a twin. A twin brother or sister we were only able to watch grow and get to know for a short time. A twin brother or sister that was celebrated, loved, and so prayed for. And as I get ready to celebrate the birth of my son, I canโ€™t help but think about what could have been. But one thing I know for sure is this...both of my sweet babies are dancing with angels. They are safe, loved, and cherished. And having this peace, knowing in my heart that I will get to hold them both in Heaven, allows me to be a joyful Mama. I pray beautiful friend, if you to are 1 in 4, I pray you can find the same peace. I pray you know you are not alone. In a few very short weeks from now, as I hold my newborn son, I will let Joy flood over me and I will smile knowing his twin is being held in the arms of Jesus.

SKINCARE ๐ŸŒธ I love that oils are as different as the people that use them. There is no "one size fits all" when it comes to oils - especially skincare! I have been customizing my routine little by little and I'm not done yet, but it is so fun experimenting with my tools! I have limited experience with skincare since washing my face is something I tried to stay away from ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I just couldn't justify washing my face in chemicals and breaking out every.time. Lately, I've been loving the ART Refreshing Toner to help gently remove impurities and refresh my face! I love the way it smells and makes my face feel so clean! I've also been using these oils, one at a time or in some combination, but today I decided to put them all in a roller. ๐ŸŒธ Lavender is known to help cleanse and soothe minor skin irritations, reduce the appearance of blemishes, and support aging skin. ๐ŸŒธ Melrose is a blend of Melaleuca, Niaouli, Rosemary, and Clove. It is a blend with powerful cleansing properties that supports the appearance of the skin. ๐ŸŒธ Elemi is in the same family as Frankincense and Myrrh and is traditionally used to support the appearance of the skin. ๐ŸŒธ Cedarwood has skin-cleansing properties that help maintain the appearance of youthful skin. ๐ŸŒธ Copaiba helps reduce the appearance of blemishes and promotes a radiant glow. ๐ŸŒธ Lemon helps brighten and reduce the appearance of aging skin. .

Burnout is no joke! I tend to experience it in cycles. Iโ€™m learning to take the time to look back at my daily life and see where I need to improve. Rest is a huge one for me. I can go and go and go and go and go until ๐Ÿ”ฅ Iโ€™m done! Then I donโ€™t want anything to do with anyone or anything! This time it took me literally a week to recover. Thankful for my hubby who acknowledges my fault and is the first to tell me to rest. Lesson learned: Schedule rest time as a #nonnegotiable


6 months with our Punk'n Nugget. What was life like before? What was it like to sleep through the night? Or to have to plan my day around someone else's nap schedule? What was it like before sweet baby giggles? And endless baby snuggles? I can hardly even remember. It feels like you have always been a part of us. Our hearts are full. Full of love + gratitude. We are complete. . .. ... .... #babiesofinstagram #babygirl #newmom #6monthsold #postpartum #momlife #motherhoodunpluged #motherhoodinspired #motherhood #motherdaughter #mygirl #mamahood


I'm back! ๐Ÿ‘‹ In case you didn't catch my Stories, I went out of town this past weekend to see @AndyGrammer live and spend time with my family. I fully disconnected from work (which I never really do ๐Ÿ™ˆ) and it was exactly what I needed. Now I feel recharged and excited for what's to come! I know we're all in Fall mode and I just launched our new line of Wrap Rings last week, but I'm actually working on new designs for the Christmas Collection that's coming next month. ๐Ÿ˜ I also have new Limited Edition pieces coming just in time for holiday shopping. Stay tuned for more details! ๐Ÿ’—


The more you use it, the stronger it gets. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช


Gift-away Winners Reveal! ๐Ÿฅณ I made these Personalized Birthstone 2-Stack Wrap Rings for the two winners of our last gift-away in celebration of our Wrap Ring launch. Aren't these names beautiful?! ๐Ÿ˜ I'm so excited for them to receive their new jewels! And I'm super grateful to all of you who participated. I have more fun things in store for you this month! ๐Ÿ’—
