For the Love of Mothers
A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to join some other darling mothers for a beautiful evening at Malibu Beach to be pampered from a giveaway they put together called For the Love of Mothers. The amazing team of people that put this event together had flower crowns for each of us by The Crown Collective, amazing photography by my favorite Angelica Marie, delicious cupcakes from Dots Cupcakes, and gift baskets for everyone from Gift and Giving. It was such a pretty day at the beach and so much fun getting to catch up with old friends as well as make some new ones. I love the chance to talk with other moms about what stage of motherhood they are in whether it's pregnancy, newborn life, or toddlers running around - I love getting to share this bond that we have in raising these little people. With my oldest baby just turning 5 years old last month I am in awe at how fast she has grown up and wondering where the time went. I love seeing her learn and grown, but can't help myself when I just want to hold her and wonder where my little girl went. She is at such a fun age where she makes friends wherever she goes by striking up a conversation with anyone and loves being in a social setting. She is smart, enjoys learning at school, loves to do art projects, always wants to be playing make-believe, prefers dresses and skirts everyday, and takes great care of her little brothers. I feel so beyond grateful to be her mother as well as these two sweet boys who just melt my heart everyday. Even though this motherhood gig is so incredibly hard some days, it is the greatest experience I've ever had in my life and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love my babies with all my heart.
