An easy black and white outfit with items you've seen me wear.  These days I am struggling with balance - work, life, being a mom, wife and friend.  I try hard to give everything I do 110% and some weeks are harder than some and this was one of them.  Blogging is a great outlet for me; I love styling clothes and accessories and my readers are so encouraging with comments but sometimes it's a bit harder to get motivated.  My lists grow longer and I always manage to get everything done, but my time to relax gets sacrificed.  I'm working on balance, enjoying my family time as much as possible, and hopefully having less meltdowns :).

Yesterday was my little one's first day at daycare.  I was a bit sad all day.  The peace and quite to do work seemed strange and I missed him.  Overall, I think it will be great for him socially and it is only 2 days a week, but it was the first time I've been away from him this long.  Who would have known I'd be a sappy mommy.

  1. One of my favorite colors to wear. Very clean and classic. Awwww your little one is soooooooooo cute! It's okay, he will enjoy day care. I also plan to take my daughter to preschool one or two times a week to stimulate her socially. I am also super sad.

  14. Love the classic combination! He's so adorable. It's hard for me to leave for work everyday, so I definitely empathize with you on having to drop him off at daycare. Well, anyway, cute look!

  15. I think I've said it before but I am so jealous of your gorgeous hair. Baby G is getting so big. I had a hard time leaving my first one at day care too but you'll get used to it. I am looking forward to my longer maternity leave this time though. Enjoy the rest of your week!

  16. I think having a blog is such a great way to express yourself creatively and get away from all the responsibilities you have to do as a mom. I think it was really hard for me the first 6 weeks but once I went back to work, it wasnt so bad. Hang in there it will get better! so far you are a super mom!

    Baby Grant is getting really big and looking more and more like daddy!
