Today, I’ve partnered up with Vuela Boutique for an amazing giveaway! Vuela is a local curated online boutique offering well crafted accessories for you, your home or thoughtful gift giving. They carry some of my favorite hard-to-find ceramic artists as well as independent designers from around the world. Plus, Marji, the owner, is just a gem.
These are just a few photos from the DIY event I hosted on Thursday night at the grand opening of Free People’s San Diego store in Fashion Valley. I had so much fun meeting new faces and crafting with everyone. I will share this yarn wall hanging DIY in detail here soon! I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with Free People on a few different occasions now, and I really can’t say enough good things about all the people involved with the brand. From the girls in the shop to the home base team in Philly. It’s so refreshing to see such great people behind such an amazing brand. The new store in Fashion Valley is the largest I’ve seen with such a wide product assortment. Large enough to get any girl in trouble who steps through it’s doors :)
Hello, hello!! I am still alive! Sorry I have been absent from this blog for a while! Life has been so busy and I have been so pregnant…and the two combine to make one really bad blogger! :)
One of the things I’ve been busy with is this DIY event that I am hosting THIS Thursday at the grand opening of the Free People store in Fashion Valley mall! I am so excited to be collaborating with one of my all-time favorite brands and hope some of you San Diego readers can come out and join me! We will be making a bunch of these pretty yarn wall hangings (pictured above) and there will be giveaways and refreshments! Thursday, July 10th from 6-8 PM. You can RSVP to the event and get more details HERE.
A little while back Sam and I got the opportunity to share our story with some of the Free People creative team as part of their “Love Stories” video series. I had seen a few of the videos before and was (and still am) surprised they asked to feature us…..but Sam and I both were honored they did. It was so fun to spend the day with them in our home and around our town and share a little bit about our life, our passions and our love for each other and the little girl we are raising together.
There is nothing that is more important to me than the love of family. Today especially, I am acutely aware of how lucky I am. Not only to be a mother, but also to be a wife to a man that is 100% invested in raising children alongside me, hand in hand. We are a team in this. And I can’t imagine doing it without him. Motherhood is a journey. It’s the best job and the hardest job at the same time. But through every hard time, nothing ever trumphs the joy that it brings. Rylee has my whole heart. Every piece of it. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for that girl. And it makes me so excited to think about falling in love all over again with the little boy growing inside of me, just as I did with her. Being a momma is such a gift. Happy mothers day momma’s.
