I’M STILL HERE

Hello, hello.  Yes, I am still alive. And here is an outfit from 6 weeks ago to prove it ;)

It was not my intention to neglect this space for as long as I have.  Sorry for disappearing on ya.  There have been many nights where I have tucked the kids into bed and sat down at my computer with every intention to write a blog post or two.  But in each attempt, my mind is just so exhausted and full of other to-do’s, that the thought of writing something worth reading, even writing at all, seems like a great task in and of itself.  I started this blog never imagining thousands of people would read it everyday.  It was a space I could put my own personal stamp on….a creative outlet that allowed me to share who I was and what I loved.  Before my kids came along, it was easy.  It was inspiring.  The community that came from it encouraged and motivated me to continue pursuing my creative dreams, and I did.  After Rylee, it became a little harder to keep up with.  And in the last 6 months, after Cru’s arrival (not to mention the launch of a brand new (second) business, Rylee & Cru), it’s become really hard.  The clothing line got off to an incredible start in November and has kept me insanely busy since.  I am currently working on our Spring/Summer collection for 2016!  I am still maintaining my etsy shop, taking on invitation jobs and other various freelance work.  One of my favorites over the last few months has been designing cards for Papyrus!  I am still doing DIY projects, I’m still creating new art, I still love fashion and discovering new and exciting brands and products….I am just not sharing these things here as much as I used to.  Sometimes, I feel sad about that.  I really wish there was more time in my day for blogging.  But the reality is, that in this season of my life, there just isn’t, unless something else is sacrificed. And right now, there is nothing else I am willing or able to sacrifice.

All that to say, I love you guys!  Thanks for being friends, supporters and encouragers over the years!  I will still post here as much as I am able, but don’t be disappointed if my updates are infrequent!  Let’s still be friends and stay connected! For the day to day, you can follow along with me on instagram!

CRICKETS CIRCLE

Have you guys heard of Cricket’s Circle!?  I’ll do you a favor and introduce you if you haven’t….
The site was created by mothers, for mothers.  It’s intention was take the guesswork out of shopping for a new baby.  Not only do they offer hundreds of products, which you can browse by category, but they also offer product recommendations, all of which have been tested and rated by members of the site’s “mom community”.  Real life women who have actually used these products.  Alongside each product is also a brief description offering an overview, ratings, as well as the various pros and cons.  Genius right!?  I remember being so overwhelmed by all the buying decisions as a new mom.  This site makes the task of “buying for baby” a whole lot less daunting.

I shared my baby registry must-haves over on their blog, alongside 9 other awesome women who know a thing or two in the motherhood department ;)  You can read all of our favorites HERE.
