A few months ago I was invited to take part in an instagram loop giveaway which was the first time I head of Lovely Tot Designs she was also part of the loop. I love that this shop not only sells super adorable baby items, but I love even more that Lovely Tot Designs gives back to their community! How awesome is that?!?!?! I knew then that I simply had to find a way to work with her.
It’s July, and for a lot of people that means many different things. Independence Day, fireworks, pool time, and long, hot summer days. It means going out to enjoy the weather, and maybe get a tan (if you’re like me that just means a sunburn). I used to not think very much of July. I’ve never been a fan of the summer months, and as a homeschooled kid I never had a “break” from school. We went through summer schooling, too. Well, things have changed since then, and July has become more significant in ways that I never imagined it would.
July is National Cleft & Craniofacial Awareness Month. Being involved in the baby community and being a parent of little ones I’ve recently seen a lot of cases of cleft lip and cleft palate and have been moved by the strength these parents have had to endure for their children.

A few months ago in getting ready to launch this blog I went through old journal entries and little quotes and writings I had saved in an old notebook. I came across notes for an old personal blog I started back when blogging was about sharing your family life.

As parents...especially moms we have so much on our plates, that time becomes a precious commodity. There is never enough of it go around. I know that I hear myself saying, “give me a minute” about 100 times a day. And unfortunately what I really mean is “I hope you’ll forget what you wanted to tell me so that I could finish what I’m doing and move on to my next task”. I know...mom of the year right here!
Happy 4th of July!
