Are there certain pieces you feel proud to wear? For me I immediately feel a sense of pride when I wear my madre tee by riley + co (I’m wearing a size small) and maya brenner necklace with Lawson and Sybil’s initials (also worn here). Motherhood can be incredibly hard and exhausting, but it’s also the best thing I’ve ever done. I am proud to be Lawson and Sybil’s mama.

 

Riley + Co. has a new mother tee that I also love. It would make a great Mother’s Day gift!

 

This weekend we’re heading to Minnesota. My grandmother passed away yesterday morning and we’ll be celebrating her life tomorrow. She was a few weeks shy of her 92nd birthday. It’s helpful knowing she lived a full life and died peacefully, but it’s still hard. I’m grateful she was able to meet Lawson and see many photos of Sybil.

 

On Sunday my baby turns 2!!! We’ll improvise a mini birthday celebration in Minnesota while watching the last day of the Masters.

 

Have a great weekend!
