As a mom, I know a thing or two about being a mom! I also know what it's like when things can get a bit too much. I'll admit it, sometimes the week has more than one day when it can feel like mom life can just be overwhelming. When it happens, It's hard to just find something that relaxes me because heck, that takes more thinking! This Mother's Day, I'm sharing a Survival Kit gift idea to give to your mom, your bestie, your sister, or your wife!
THIS POST IS IN COLLABORATION WITH MANTRABAND. SHARING MY FAVORITE PHRASES TO LIVE BY THAT ENCOURAGES TO BE CALM, TO TRUST, & BELIEVE YOUR PURPOSE ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU FEEL LOST.
Have you ever found yourself in a place where you are just unsure about what you're supposed to do in life? Perhaps, you may be questioning if the things that you are doing have any meaning because it feels like you are not at your full potential. At one point in your life, you know that what you're doing is your calling, but others around you sometimes make you feel otherwise or makes you feel that your gifts and talents aren't up to their standards? I'm almost convinced that most of the time, it is our own voice that creates those thoughts but it doesn't make it any less real or less painful. What we can only do is to move on from there, but the question always remains the same. How?
It's somewhat easy and difficult to just plan a little outdoor session with my kids. Easy in the sense that it's just a little day out at the park to enjoy the sun, but difficult to pack and plan for it. Gotta love parent life, there is never a dull moment! I'm sharing my must have items for a day out in the sun to help moms like it make it easier to plan for activities. Less is more! But honestly though, even it is less items that we bring, it somehow feels like a lot? What do you think?
I realized something the other day... In every season there is always a celebration. There is the Spring’s Easter, Summer BREAK from school, Fall’s thanksgiving, Winter’s Christmas and finally the one upcoming soon... Valentine’s day! I love Valentine’s Day not because it’s the only day to show love of course, but it is a day to show that love in the cutest ways. It’s especially fun for kids and as a parent... that literally is just one of many ways to melt our hearts! Kids love creative and adorable things. We do not have to spend much for Valentine’s decorations because the dollar store is the best place for it.
Valentine's Day is coming soon and I want to share a beautiful keepsake that would make the woman of your life smile! Not only is it beautiful, but it is also customizable to suit her personality. I am not much to wear many jewelry, but when I do, they have a special meaning such as a personalized bracelet that has my children's initials or a necklace that has me and my husband's initials! For our twelfth year anniversary, this Pandora charm bracelet has made it into my collection!
It's true that with faith, hope, and love that love is the most important of all because without love... faith and hope cannot live without the means. I have been with my best friend for twelve years now and if you have been married, you know that there are stories that define two people who choose to love one another time and time again. It speaks actions of forgiveness, selflessness, and the will to act on God's grace to one another. Here we are on our twelfth year anniversary and I still long for him when he's away, I still yearn for his presence because God speaks only truth when He said we are no longer two, but one. The future is never an exact picture, and while I will never know how long I will be blessed to breathe the air on this earth... I do know some exact things. With that said, "I can't promise I'll be here for the rest of your life, but I can promise that I'll love you from the rest of mine." I can't wait until our 25th year Anniversary, you can bet that we would further this tradition of our anniversary photograph! Also, as someone who loves to express love with words, this felt board is sure to please!

I’m sure you’ve all seen the beautiful felt Letter boards around lately! They generate creativity, thought process, and are very welcoming. I don’t know about you, but when I see other people’s letter boards, you get a little glimpse of who they are as a person. Not only that, but these are amazing for each season and every event. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring, summer, and even birthdays... or anniversaries! It’s a beautiful touch to an already beautiful gesture or celebration. For example, this rusty red is next to our family Christmas tree to tell a story of the great Gift that was born to us! Read more to see more pictures of my unboxing or different colors!
