This boy right here is pure sunshine. He’s such a light in my life. And even when times are rough and days are hard – we get through it. There will always be challenges but if there is anything motherhood teaches you, it’s how to be strong. There is no way around it. Elliot’s smile is a reminder to keep going, to keep moving forward. I just love him so much.
I am grateful for so many things. I have the best family and friends, a warm cozy home, an amazing little boy, and my health. Proof that I have been very lucky in this lifetime.
My career choice hasn’t always been easy but I was determined to do what I love and I’m doing it. Art and design is literally in my DNA and there is nothing else I could do with as much confidence and pride. I am thankful to still have Olive by my side and the memories of my sweet Jenny, which I will hold on to forever. She was truly a blessing in my life. And I continue to appreciate Mother Earth for all she shares and teaches me. Nature will always be a part of my soul.
These past few years have been pretty significant and many realizations have come to the surface. Growth is an understatement. I look forward to exciting opportunities, new friendships, and positive change as this year unfolds into another. The shift within me is truly guiding me as it should.
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and send love to each and every one of you. Enjoy the holiday as best you can.
Seeing Elliot for the first time was such a joy, despite feeling like shit and wanting to throw up, lol. Those chubby cheeks, soft lips, fair skin, dark eyes, and button nose…my boy was here and he was beautiful. And as I countdown to his 1st birthday, I am filled with so much gratitude. The love I have for him is beyond words. Everything I went through was so worth it to have him by my side.
