Mother’s Love

Having children of my own, I finally understand why people say it is a love you have never felt before. I went through life happy and I got to say a bit selfish, I did what I liked, I bought what I wanted, I pursued my goals and when I got married I shared things with my husband.  But nothing prepares you for the love you will receive from having children.  I will do anything for them and I am trying my hardest to make sure they have a happy and healthy life.  My own appreciation is unexplainable for my own mom after having these two boys and I finally understand why she cried when I moved out of the house to go to college.  The thought of Grant or Gavin reaching that point already makes me sad!  

The Luxaby Baby Store invited my family to take photos for their lookbook and store. It was a fantastic opportunity for my family to take some photos and support a local business.  I cherish family photos and if you follow me on instagram (@redsolesandredwine) you see I share my daily life. These moments in life are captured and so wonderful to share later on.




I have my share of tears from not being to handle the pressure of being a mom, full time entrepreneur, wife and friend.  It may look like roses on this blog, but there are days I sit in leggings and t shirt with no makeup without a shower and struggling while feeding my baby and working.  When I hear Grant giggle, give me a hug and kiss and/or see Gavin give me a huge smile, all those worries subside.  At the end of the day, their happiness is my happiness.  This Mother’s Day, not only do I want to thank my mom for everything she has done for me, but I want to thank my boys including my husband for giving me the best gift overall, their love.
