The little girl that made me a mama, 4 quick years ago 💕 Remembering the morning I went in to be induced, feeling her on my chest after an hour and a half of pushing, the quietness of the 3 of us together, and just staring at her in awe. To one of my greatest blessings, happy birthday my sweet Ella Marie!
Without a passion and drive for what you do and how you spend you're days, you are at serious risk of putting yourself through the same motions day after day after day. I know some mums can be left feeling unfulfilled, having a sense of being unhappy, or having something that they do just for themselves.
I am not saying this was me but I do know some mothers felt that during a particular time in their lives. Their sense of self worth and self belief kept getting smaller and smaller because they felt ‘stuck’ and then it becomes even harder to make a change.
This is exactly WHY we made a change. We didn’t want to be those mums 🙇🏼♀️ who said goodbye to their dreams, goals and aspirations. We wanted to do better and make a difference.
So we both said YES to something that we had no idea what we were actually saying yes to. And now look where we are. We’ve had such a crazy ride. We have had so much fun together, going to conferences that have been pretty emotional but inspiring AF! We are so lucky to call this ‘work’ ⚡️⚡️
I’m sure you can tell but this business actual sets both of our souls on fire. It is something that is full of passion, support, community and endless opportunities to make your mark in this world.
WOW - what a year 2018 has been, being on 2019 is all I can say 💯
Today we celebrated Dakota’s 1st Trip Around the Sun!!! Although she couldn’t have cared less about her smash cake, she had so much fun celebrating with everyone. Matthew and I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you who showered her with love today and everyday. We are so fortunate to have you all in our lives! ♥️🌞
Today we turn two! 🖤 2️⃣That’s two years of Little Maisy! Two years of creating a store where I can showcase handmade local and national talent, and for that I’m proud. I’ve met some incredible people while on this journey, some of which will be lifelong friends. This is by far the most rewarding job I’ve ever had. I get to see and cuddle so many of your little babes, listen to your stories, offer a shoulder to cry on and even the first person you tell that you’re pregnant!! (Happens more than you’d think 🙊) It’s easy to underestimate how much of your time you need to invest into a small business, but I’m certain it will pay off especially, if you continue to support us and shop local I’m sure we are the beginning of something pretty darn special. I’d also like the thank my amazing friends and family (Thanks Mama 🖤) for all your love and support (you know who you are) 🖤 and a big thank you to my amazing suppliers, Nothing makes me happier than seeing your parcels arrive at my door step 🙊😂 Here’s to another year in Palmy ✌🏼🖤
Tonight we took Ezra and Eloise to Winter Wonderland at the Portland International Raceway.
Eloise tried to crawl out of the car head first, but Ezra was completely mesmerized.
Christmas is better with kids.
Tonight was truly the most magical night 🚂🎄🎅🏼 seeing Christmas through a 2-year-olds eyes with some of your favorite people was something I’ll never forget. Filing this under one of my favorite nights ever ❤️
Christmas crafts, face painting, animals, cookie decorating, games....and, of course....
S A N T A A A A 🎅🏼 *insert Will Ferrell’s voice from the movie Elf * 😍🤣
Today was a fabulous day! 💚❤️ #sundayfunday#tistheseason
When you dethrone Father Christmas and win the Santa’s Grottos Game of Thrones 🤴🏼
@thelifeoflucca didn’t really warm to the slim lined, big pimpin, dressed all in white Santa anyway 😬
