Sonnet James + Wilson Farm

Sonnet James
I've been so [SO!] excited to show you a collaboration that has been in the works for awhile. 

Sonnet James is a new dress line and the purpose behind the dresses are to help Mom's feel playful in their dresses all while feeling good about what they are wearing. 

Ginger, Lindsey, Erica and I each took an activity that showed what we did in our SJ dress and documented it with our littles. You really should see the other moms and their beautiful pictures!

One of our favorite last minute outings is to go to a nearby farm, Wilson Farm
One of the reason's why I love Wilson's is for the peaceful, clean atmosphere. Plus there always seems to be some fun activity going on from farm tours for children, to hayrides to festivals.
When we go, we usually love to go get some grocery shopping done, (and get a treat of course) the flowers are always so enticing especially since we are still waiting for Spring to show up!
Then we always love to see the barn animals! 
The boys have so much fun and we usually talk about animals all the way home because of their deep love for all things animals.

The Boys Nursery

Boys Room


I was thinking to myself about how important it is to preserve memories. And as I had this thought and was sitting in the boys nursery, I knew I wanted to preserve their room and the feelings of childhood for them. [And selfishly me as well.] So in efforts to remember this childhood room  I created a short film.


Just a few still photos as well, for memories sake..

I got the ideas for the hanging flowers from this gorgeous blog. Sometimes I like to imagine I lived in Denmark .

Mothering Goals

Thank you to Mark it with a Q for the bowties that my boys love to wear to church!

This mothering thing is hard. And the words, ' you are lucky you are cute' come out of my mouth at least 100 times a day. I let little things get to me. And I let the supposedly-cute things become annoying.

But that doesn't mean I don't love being a mother. That doesn't mean I can't keep trying everyday to be a better mom, a better listener and a better playmate.

My goal lately has been to say 'Yes' more to my boys. To sing along with their broken record song, and to get down on their level and play, sympathize and laugh more.

This mothering this is hard- yes, but nothing in this world is worth it, if its not hard.
