Today was one of those days that I didnt seem to have enough hours to get it all done.... but as I lay here in my daughters bed after "3 more books please" and hear my baby sleeping deeply, I instantly do not want to rush anymore....it can wait....
Every day we make the choice... stay in whatever situation that doesn't work for you...or take the steps to write a better ending... I chose to live a life that I make constant edits... some might not be popular... but they were right for me... no body can control your outcome except for you... #takecontrol#instaquote
Today all I can do is try to be the best version of myself I can be.... live with a purpose and give from my heart... yesterday is gone and to hold on to regrets of the past is a waste of the energy someone else may need me to have. Today I am living my heart purpose and giving back in lorna's memory and lending a piece of my skill set to help further the fight for #aworldwithoutcf ... more updates to come XO ~ Angela
Ok....so I did a photo shoot for Elita Intimates , (a Canadian Made underwear brand) a while back, and I was struggling with myself whether to show them... only because I was self conscious that it was after having my 3rd daughter at the age of 41 and I felt I hadnt bounced back as quickly... and like so many people when analyzing their own pictures I went straight for everything about myself that I didnt like... why do we do that to ourselves?? So I decided to find one thing I liked about each of them and embrace everything else.... (that and the fact that a girlfriend found them online and tagged me LOL the jig was up)
So this past weekend was our girls wine pairing and camping night ...and I had the opportunity to partner up with @selkiewine and bring both the Selkie Rose Frizzante and the Selkie Frizzante along with my dish selection Honey & Beer Chicken Skewers. With the chicken we sampled the Frizzante (I had the Rose myself earlier in the afternoon) .... and I was so amazed by these Nova Scotian Wines! They were both nice and light and although they do have some fizz, they are slightly softer then a champagne... I highly recommend these if you are looking for something a little lighter and refreshing on a crisp summer night... Please excuse the paper cups in the video....we are camping after all 💖
Tell me what motivates you on Mondays! ... For me being self employed means I have lots of feelings about Mondays , like
1. Every day is Monday
2. I dont get to use TGIF
3. But I love that my schedule is my own...
How about you?? Share your thought in the comments!
So this week we heard about the passing of a beloved designer Kate Spade... with this news there was deep shock and the realization and acknowledgment of the fact that no matter how seemingly successful or happy a surface can be, underneath it all, great pain can exist. It is unfortunate that it takes these types of public deaths to have the discussion about the need to address mental health issues. I have loved reading so many touching stories of personal experiences from those posting about their first #KateSpade handbag and the wholehearted appreciation of the stuff she made.... but this is also a lesson to remember to give that compliment, or that extra smile when you feel the need to someone else.... tell a complete stranger that you love what they are wearing or a service they are performing if you feel comfortable.... because you never know what their story is...and sometimes it just takes a kind word for people to realize there isnt always darkness ... and a kind moment to one could mean life to someone else #bekind#begenuine#beauthentic#ripkatespade
