Family Friday - Party of Four







I'm so in LOVE with these photos of my family by Erin Tukua.  Adding another little one to the family has been so joyous and tough at the same time.  Big brother, Colson is very jealous of his little brother Nixon, which brings many exhausting conversations with a 23-month-old.  My days feel like Groundhog day, very long, draining and it starts all over again.  Then Colson says, "I love you mama" and Nixon smiles while he snuggles on my chest and the struggles of being a mom fade away.  Sleepless nights and crying babies are tough but I wouldn't want it any other way.  I know this madness will settle down and I'll look back and miss these trying moments.  
Thank you to my amazing hubby for being the most loving and supportive husband through these tough times.

Features Friday - Pete Frates

Ice, Ice, Baby...

After watching the Pete Frates video below, I was drawn into the social media phenomenon know as the ALS #IceBucketChallenge.  Pete's story is heartbreaking and courageous at the same time.  It doesn't seem fair that a great guy like Pete who had an incredible future ahead of him was diagnosed with this fatal disease.  As a mom of two boys it hits close to home and makes me want to hug my boys even harder tonight.  


Working in the fashion industry I'm constantly telling myself during stressful times, "we aren't saving lives."  Now is my chance to actually make a difference and hopefully bring awareness to ALS.  

Below is my #IceBucketChallenge to my GUESS team at work.  
I challenge you to take the #IceBucketChallenge and go to the ALS site to donate.

Go Green

Succulents are Everything: the new centerpiece for your home, wedding, dinner party, or the perfect housewarming gift.  I'm currently obsessed with them.  My husband and I have lined our backyard with various types of succulents.  They require little maintenance and with my crazy schedule this is exactly what I need in my life.  So when you think about purchasing flowers, give succulents a try and see if you turn a new leaf for this beautiful plant.
