I typically show my daily looks but today I wanted to share a bit about how my little Grant has changed my life. He just turned 5 months and has taught me to enjoy and be in the moment. For the first time in my life, instead of thinking of what I need to do, stress, and worry about every little thing, I enjoy taking it day by day. His infectious smile and giggle brings me so much joy. I have moments where I don’t feel balanced; torn in feeling like I’m not a fantastic mother, I need to do more with my blog, more with my jewelry line, more as a wife, as a friend, just plain and simple mediocre at everything. I’m a perfectionist and it’s hard to juggle it all, but when I look at him smiling at me I realize this is what life is all about.
I am very lucky, I get to do what I love and have for years. My biggest advice for everyone that emails me is to do what you love and success will follow. My jewelry line has grown beyond what I expected, but when you own your business you work a lot. Not many people besides my family and husband know how much I work. Having Grant in my life, I realized I wasn’t appreciating each milestone my company made. From my jewelry being on Who What Wear to the Today Show, I kept looking at what’s next, what’s next.
I knew having a little one would change my life, the diapers, the breastfeeding, taking 100% care of someone else, but I never knew how much a little one could change my outlook on life. I am a better person because of him and hope one day he will read this and understand how much I love him.
Thanks for reading and supporting my blog. It’s a fantastic outlet for me to show my passion for fashion, but also a bit of me.
Back to looks tomorrow 🙂
