My purpose as an Influencer

Ahhh that dreaded word that I hate hearing… “influencer”. To be honest, the word “blogger” doesn’t seem that appealing to me either. I sort of cringe when I have to refer to myself as one of those two terms. Now I know I am such a small fish in a BIG pond of thousands upon thousands of people who have made blogging their jobs- and I don’t even know if my website or Instagram stats technically qualify me to write on such a subject, but just recently I have felt just so honored to be in this space – to be followed by a growing audience that I love to connect with so much.

Jett Oliver: 9 months

Jett baby you are 9 months old!!!! 

You are into EVERYTHING. You can’t sit still because your mind is always running, always curious about the world around you. You finally learned to army crawl, and will get up on your knees every now and then, but most of the time, you just drag your legs behind you – one knee bent in front of you and the other leg straight behind you. (I just say that you must love yoga and are an expert at pigeon pose)

4 ways to enjoy the process

No matter what goal you are chasing, whether that be a professional goal, or a personal one – we all have dreams that we want to become reality. Most of us suffer from the “I WANT IT NOW!” syndrome. (I raise my hand on this one too..because.. who wants to wait when you know what you want??!)

Mom Sweater + Boyfriend Jeans (and a little on our plans for spring & summer!)

“Momiform” in all definitions of the word over here! I just recently bought these Madewell boyfriend jeans – my first “boyfriend” style jean I have ever had! These are great because they still feel like the fit around the waist (with stretch of course- can’t live without the stretch!) but still have a more relaxed, less form-fitting shape.
