Life has felt so full lately. So many things to do and never enough hours in the day. It’s definitely been a challenging season, and finding some time for myself…some “rest amidst the chaos”… is one of the things I have been searching for. I think I put a lot of pressure on myself to really excel in all the areas of my life….as a wife, a mom, a business owner….and a lot of times I feel like I am just not measuring up. When I find myself in this space, the best thing for me, ironically, is to rest. To take a step back and reevaluate my priorities. One of my definitions of rest is just “being” with my kids. Letting my mind take a break from work and to-do lists, and being fully present with them….living in the moment. It’s one of the things that brings me the most joy and fulfillment. Even something as simple as a walk along the coast. Getting outside and exploring the world around us is something I think all of us crave. There is this cliff near our house that overlooks the ocean and the view always takes my breath away. It’s one of those spots that seems to put everything into perspective. We took our new Bugaboo Cameleon 3 stroller for a spin there this weekend. It’s a stroller I’ve actually had my eye on for years so I was really excited when it arrived. Strollers are usually a bear for me to put together so I usually leave that chore to Sam (lucky guy). But I decided to give it a try myself this time around and to my surprise, it was super easy to set up. Right away, I was most impressed with the quality. Obviously, I love an all-black stroller (I wear black usually 6 out of 7 days a week and it’s only fitting that my stroller matches my wardrobe, right!?) but you can tell the fabric is really durable and made to last. The Cameleon is an all-terrain stroller with a reversible seat and handle bar. One cool feature that I figured out was that it can transform to two-wheel mode by reversing the handle bar and removing the smaller front wheels. This allows you to push it through the sand much easier. I’ve actually never been able to successfully move a stroller through thick sand without help….so as much as we are at the beach, I know this feature will be put to good use! Bugaboo strollers are designed to ‘move freely’ with features like the custom shock absorption, one handed steering and a seamless 360 degree turn. The quality and craftmanship of this stroller are pretty obvious, even from the first time I put it to use. I’m looking forward to going on more adventures with the kids with this stroller.
