Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my love for style, food, and all things Mommy. Hope you have a nice stay!

We're all in this together

We're all in this together

"We're all in this together", probably one of the most important sentences as women we should remember. Being a Mom is truly one of the biggest accomplishments and jobs I have ever come across. Being Knox and Ellison's mother is a lifetime achievement, something that I will never stop doing, or stop learning how to do my best. I can honestly say this is a job that does not have a manual. It is something you learn everyday how to be better at with practice and learning from your own mistakes. No one can teach you what will work for your child because let's face it, these little creatures you have put on earth are yours and yours only. No one knows them better than you because YOU are who they will lean on, cry to, be angry with, share their deepest thoughts, or repetitive questions of why with...

I will say, there are some pretty remarkable Mother's out there that we can learn a lot from and help us along the way. Actually, I think every mother that chooses to be better than yesterday is pretty remarkable. Being a mom I have learned is no easy task, and the number one thing you can tell yourself everyday is to just love them unconditionally and they will love you back unconditionally. 

On a deeper look into my life, I grew up with one of the strongest, most loving mother's that God could have ever graced me with. My father decided when I was very young that being a father wasn't his goal in life and he gave up that right, which only made my mother even more of a gift from God every day. She was my mother and my father, which showed me how strong and capable of a mother my sister and I were blessed with. She did everything she could on her own to give us everything we could truly need, and then more. She is such a remarkable Mimi to my sister and my children, they are loved more than I think they will ever understand. Unfortunately my mother has been diagnosed with this terrible disease called Alzheimer's which we will fight together as a family, but she is determined to be the best Mimi that she can be, and I'd say my sister and I are pretty blessed to share this kind of love with our children. 

At the end of the day, we as mother's are all fighting our own battles; from being the perfect mother, the craftiest, fighting an unfair illness, surviving marriage, best dressed, most athletic, most successful, whatever is your battle, never forget... We are ALL in this thing called "Motherhood" together...
