Cherish it all, every single moment.

Cherish it all, every single moment.

Today, I specifically want to talk to mamas.  The mamas who are in the middle of the mayhem, in the middle of the noise, just desiring to have a moment to themselves, wondering how in the world they’re going to do it all.

Especially the mamas who are juggling being a business owner and raising babies at the same time.  

It’s hard.  And a constant challenge. It’s as simple as that.

So today, I want to just wrap you up in grace, and want you to know that you are not alone. We are all in this together, all in different stages, with different parenting styles, different stories to tell, different messes and meals we are making and then cleaning up every. single. day.

But , through it all, these words keep coming to mind.

Don't wish it away.  Cherish it all.

#GivingTuesday, to Cure Clubfoot

#GivingTuesday, to Cure Clubfoot

Clubfoot is a congenital deformity that twists the foot, making it impossible to walk.   It can not be prevented, but treatment is available that can fix it.  More than 90% of children with clubfoot live in areas where treatment options are limited, but with our help, that can change. Will you join me for #GivingTuesday, from November 28th to December 5th?

We Believe in a Life Well Loved. The Grace and Serendipity Mission...

We Believe in a Life Well Loved.  The Grace and Serendipity Mission...

Over the years, Grace and Serendipity has grown and changed, and more than anything, it keeps coming back to living a life well loved.  So, today I wanted to share our Manifesto, or Mission, with you.

I was going to put this into a series of Instagram posts, but honestly, every time I look at it I don't want to split it apart.  So, I put the entirety of it here as one long image for you to read instead.  I hope that you love the direction we are headed as much as I do.

To Dancing Through Life.

To Dancing Through Life.

In writing this post, I keep coming back to that one fateful day back in May of 2015 where I heard “I made you for more than weddings.”  And when you keep hearing and seeing that phrase appear in different ways over and over again, you eventually have to make the decision to listen to that voice.  So with that said, it’s time to make a change. One that is incredibly bittersweet, but moving forward, is definitely right.
