I’m partnering with Francesca’s as part of their Mother’s Day campaign, but all my opinions are my own and I only share about brands that I believe in.
It’s hard to believe that this year marks eight years since I became a Mom. Eight! It feels like only yesterday that we were headed to the hospital in labor, full of excitement and nerves, knowing that in the coming hours our lives would be forever changed in the most beautiful way. When our sweet girl arrived, strong lungs and all, I knew, in that moment, that I would never be the same person I was. I adopted new worries, new hopes and new dreams as we entered a new chapter of our lives together. I only hoped that we would fill her life with more love and more joy than she would ever imagine. Then 17 months later our son arrived and it rocked our world again in a beautiful way. Arriving 3 weeks early, he kept us on our toes from the moment he arrived and taught us that life will always throw you a curve ball and it’s how you rise to the occasion that matters most.
This Mother’s Day I’m celebrating in an extra special way, a mother/daughter brunch with my closest girlfriends. I feel like with the hustle and bustle of life, I don’t often find enough ways to spend one on one time with Katelyn. Car rides to and from after school activities are not quality time spent with her to speak confidence into her life. My hope is that I’m instilling in her the qualities and strength she needs to grow up a beautiful and self assured women and one day, mother.
I’m also excited because I love parties and any excuse to spend time with my friends and do life together. I even picked up some adorable party décor from one of my favorite local party stores, Wild Child Party, for our brunch. In a day an age where social media is prevalent and it’s so easy to hide behind a screen, I’m always finding reasons to grab coffee or enjoy lunch with the women who matter most in my life and pour into my soul. Plus, who doesn’t love a reason to get all dressed up!!
Speaking of dressing up, I love that Francesca’s is there to help me look my best! From casual beach day Mom’s style to dressing up for a brunch with your girlfriends or, Francesca’s has all your style needs covered.
