I am a mom. When you become a mom, 99% of life changes. I am not very big on change. Ok, let me rephrase that. I am not very good with reorganizing my life when it changes. I like to go with the flow, my typical answer to life according to my husband is "you decide".
You see when you become a mom any "organization" of life you had before goes out the window and you are left finding the new norm. What does any of this have to do with fashion? You see the dress I am wearing? When GIna and Kate sent this dress to me, my daughter ripped it out of my hands and wanted to snuggle with it. She asked if she could use it as a blanket. Like the great mother I am, I ripped it out of her hands and said, "Are you kidding me? This is my NEW dress!!"
How could my child ever think a dress would be used as a blanket?? Possibly because the dress is made out of the most comfortable material there is! When I slipped this on, it literally felt like I was wearing pajamas. Pajamas and heels to be exact. It seemed a little odd that something could look so pretty and be so comfortable, until I looked in the mirror and realized I was infact wearing an outfit ready for date night.
More often than not I realize I need to humble myself infront of my kids. My daughter was just as excited as I was to see the new package in the mail. We just had two different perspectives. After I shot some pictures in this dress I came home and sat on the couch and my babies snuggled right up to me. In a different way than usual. Mommy was obviously a lot more snuggly feeling today. Perhaps I felt like a blanket. The only thing my oldest daughter wanted to feel from that dress.
Life changes. The more children you have the more your world turns upside down. I am learning change can be a good thing. It allows for new opportunities and new perspectives. My girls show me on a daily basis that life is ever changing and with that comes new joys. Embrace the Change. And wear a "blanket" dress while you do. ")
