  • “And where she stood, she stood tall.”
So many of y’all wanted to see a blog post about self-confidence, and your wish is my command 😘
Confidence and learning to be comfortable in my own skin is something that I always struggled with. The tips I am sharing on the blog today have really helped to break out of that, and I hope they help you in some way too 🤟🏼 •

  • Happy Monday! We got a little, teeny bit of snow this weekend. Fingers crossed we get more in the next week (and the week after apparently!) Something about the air when it snows... the best, freshest smell!
It has me feeling revived and ready for take on this week 🤘🏼
Who got hit with snow? ❄️ •

  • #Ad Holiday travel season is over, but I am still swooning over this stroller from @cybex_global. The gb Pockit+ stroller folds up to be so tiny, which makes it great for travel and taking up less space in the car. It’s perfect for on-the-go mamas that don’t have time (or energy) to mess around with a huge, heavy stroller that takes 3 hands to unfold.
I love how easy it is to use too! Check out my stories later today for some action footage;) •

  • It’s Friday! This full week back after the holiday season has kicked my butt... anyone else? Need ALLLLL the coffee.
RVA is getting snow this weekend, and I can’t wait to cozy up in the house in cute sweaters like this for the foreseeable snow days 🥰
This sweater is one of my faves from @thepinklilyboutique ❄️ Shop my daily looks by following me on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app.

Taking life lessons from #karatekid and #mrmiyagi ❤️
Thank you all for the sweet comments and messages the other day. Some days are about moving forward, and some days are about taking the time to feel whatever you need to feel.
Life is all about balance! I’m feeling ready for you now, 2019 👊🏼

  • This is the face of someone who has been struggling since the holidays. The first week of January is always hard for my family, since it marks the anniversary of my brother’s passing. My anxiety has been at an all time high, and it’s hard... It. Is. Hard. •
PPD and PPA can last long after you have babies. This is the face of someone battling to smile, because I don’t want my kids to see that I don’t want to get out of bed. But this mama doesn’t have a choice but to carry on for them. •
It’s hard to talk about grief, and anxiety, especially when you feel like there aren’t many people who can understand yours. •
It has been a little quiet around here, but this mama was in serious need of self-care and reflection.
•
Losing someone that close to you always takes a long period to cope with me... I mean, do you ever really? •

  • (Ad) New Year, new clothes 😍@stitchfix for the win! My girls have been living in their new clothes from their first fixes. It was so much fun to watch them open them up and try on all of their new outfits.
You can check out my stories for an unboxing, and be on the lookout next week for a full post! •

  • My baby sister and I recently took a little staycation to @gradrichmond. It is so cute and the view is amazing!
They have a rooftop bar and pool (which you know we will be utilizing when the weather warms up), and the hotel decor is giving me all of the 70s vibes 😍
Have you stayed at a grad uatehotels before? They have tons of locations all over! •
