Almost One!

eleanor8

Where does time go? Eleanor is going to be ONE next month, and I’m kind of freaking out!  This is coming from the mouth of someone who didn’t even have children on her radar a few years ago.  I love this little human more than she will ever know.  Eleanor has made me a stronger, selfless, more laid back person, I even knew existed within me.  She has been my BIGGEST teacher so far in life.

Eleanor, is a strong willed, independent, full of personality, little child.  She LOVES music, and she loves playing the ukulele.  She loves the beach and the water.  Everyday I look at her and wonder how Dave and I got so lucky.  It was really hard for us to get pregnant, so, she by far, made us both BELIEVE miracles REALLY do happen.

It’s amazing how your own child can really make you a better person.  Not that I didn’t feel I was a good person before, but, I definitely feel I’m more dedicated to life now.

Thanks, Eleanor! We love you to the moon and back!

Your tribe

tribe new

Happy Tuesday!

Sorry it’s been a bit quiet around here, we have been super busy with Love Threads, and baby Eleanor. Who, by the way, is going to be ONE soon, and I’m having a hard time believing it.

Are any of you on Instagram? Yes, I’m sure.  If you’re not, get on! I have found so many beautiful women, and mamas on there.

Something I am realizing getting older, is that I want to be surrounded with naturally, good people.  I understand everyone has a past, and I’m definitely not here to judge, as I’ve had my own. But, I do know that no matter who you are, or how you were, to be a good quality person you have to honest and truthful.  This starts with yourself.  It’s hard, and sometimes a lot of work, but boy, it sure is worth it! I realized a while back that you can’t just play the part, you have to believe it and DO it.  Something along the lines of the old sang, “faith without works is dead”.

My circle has gotten much smaller in the last few years, but to be honest, it’s a closer, tighter circle. I love that! I’m a mom now, and I want to raise Eleanor around people who are caring and giving, not out for something. unfortunately, our society seems to be set for climbing and taking, instead of kindness and caring. It’s sad. We don’t have to be that way, we can all be happy and kind. Yes, things do happen, but trying to see the teachings in the negative things, truly can make a difference. It’s all about training our brains.

I’m loving my tribe, and building in that direction. There really are good people out there, it’s a bit of a search, but I’m willing to put out the effort. It really is a beautiful thing to find a kind hearted women, mama or not.

I hope everyone has a beautiful week~~~

California Love

My love for California changes all of the time.  Some days it’s too expensive, some days it’s just right, and some days I can’t make up my mind.  But, ultimately it really is a good place.  I mean, the fresh veggies year round, the weather is pretty much always warm, and the number one thing, the ocean.  Besides the one mild earthquake I’ve experienced, nothing REALLY is that bad. Oh and the people, I haven’t quite figured them out, but that’s ok, everyone is kind of in their own world anyways.

So to show our true love for Cali, and my new home, here are a couple fun tees and sweatshirts I brought into the shop…

Loving others

monday words1

I can let something build up in me and make it tens times worse than it needs to be, or I can meditate and let the universe take it.  This past weekend my husband and I had a conversation about some family members and why they choose to do the things they do.  We were talking about how we were hurt by certain actions.  After a long discussion, we both looked at each other and said, “really, it’s none of our business”.  It’s true, it’s not.  Yes, we feel affected, but at the same time we have to accept these people, who we do love, for who they are.  It’s hard! I’m not going to lie.  My husband is more calm about such things. I want to call the person and have an out right discussion of the behavior taking place. ha!

My point of this post,  is that we don’t have to like peoples actions, but we should try to love everyone.  It will only make us better people.  If you are honest in your own every day life, things will proceed the RIGHT way.  I’m a firm believer in karma.  You get what you choose.  I’ll end with this… Always be a giver, not just a taker.  It’s better for the soul.

Cheers to Monday!

Two years ago, I married my best friend.

Dave, you are the most amazing husband a girl could ask for.  You are loyal, kind, sincere, and as generous as one could be.  The years keep getting better and better with you.  I can’t believe I got so lucky!

Happy Anniversary, my love. xo
