One of my missions for #kindredoak is to be in as many local boutiques as possible. After looking into some of the larger box-name stores, it just felt this was the right path for us, ya know? I LOVE going to small towns that have so many cool things to offer and seeing those small businesses thrive from people coming through to find unique items. And I love getting to meet the people behind the business- seeing how much it means for them and their family just like it does for ours πŸ’— So if you know of a small business within a road trip away of Utah, tag them below so I can stop in! Even if they're not a road-trip away, let me know if you have a local boutique you'd like to see some KO stuff in! #smallbusiness #shopsmall

Our swadddles are so great for new little babes (obvi πŸ’πŸΌ), but did you know they're 40 inches long and 40" wide? So they're the perfect size for walking babies to carry around and they're the perfect little cover-up on a spring day for outdoor picnics or just lounging on the couch. So just make sure your little one doesn't get TOO attached because you'll probably want to steal it for yourself from time to time. I know I steal Nixon's all the time 😜 #kindredoak #swaddle #babyblanket

You know what I love most about this picture? As I sit here fortunate enough to work from the back of the rover while my cute boyfriend drives so I can be productive, I feel like this picture perfectly describes how comfortable and happy it is. Isn't that one of the greatest things about technology these days? You don't have to be stuck to a desk inside.
And it's just so perfect that they're in cozy clothes and under that little picture! ❀️ Have you seen @chrissyjpowers profile? She's beautiful and so is her family! πŸ’— I just adore how she beautifully captures each moment with her loves.
Now, if only we made the #kindredoak romper (or maybe the striped maxwell pants πŸ€”) in adult size. #workinginthecar #comfort #cutestbabies #customercutie

Comin' into Monday like.... πŸ¦„πŸŒŠπŸ˜‚ So a few days ago, I did something crazy.... Every year we have a competition called #pondskim at the ski resort where people try to ski across a pond (duh haha) dressed in a funny costume; it's so much fun to watch and last year Caleb won the entire competition. I've never participated because I've always been way to afraid (you can see why.... lol). But this year I finally said "I'm doing it!" It's funny how many things we don't do because of fear. I failed MISERABLY, but I was SO happy I did it and felt like a badass even though I looked like a crazy person hahaha! Conquering your fears is one of the most exhilarating feelings πŸ’ͺ🏼 Am I right? What have you been afraid to try? What's stopping you? #kindredconfidence #inspirationmonday #comininhot #fail

And we're off....

You know those days where you question every decision you've made? Like, did I scold Nixon more than I actually loved on him today? Was I more short with him than usual because I'm stressed? Did I spend enough time with him without working? Am I making the right decisions today for his tomorrow?
Gaaaaah. Some days that #momguilt slaaaays me. And you know what? It's usually the guilt that is the worst part out of everything. Not that I may have been short or that I may have had to work a little extra today or that I don't know exactly what tomorrow holds, but the negative thoughts I have toward MYSELF. What is this teaching my son?
I'm grateful to Caleb (my boyfriend) for grounding me and helping me to see things from a different perspective. Realizing that when I focus on the positive, the best I can do is to be better tomorrow and use today as a learning experience to know that life won't always be perfect and because of that, it truly is all that we make it. So here's to tomorrow and being better moms just for making it to the next day πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ
PS- every time I'm having mom-guilt, I scroll through old pics of us together 😩 (just me? πŸ€”πŸ˜‚) I cherish that we have these photos together through all the different stages. This one from when he was 3 is one of my favs πŸ’— Thanks @jessicajanaephotography for be such a bomb photographer and capturing this 😘 #kindredoak

You are all so freaking awesome! I seriously can't believe how fast these little beauties went! Fair warning- we only have TWO of the stripe boxy tee left before it is gone forever and we just restocked the white/navy Ikat 😘 Grab them while you can!
Fun fact about these tees: they are the first part of our relaunch of Kindred OAK Grey Label (who remembers?? πŸ™‹πŸΌ) Each shirt is handmade and then packaged with scraps from the material used to make them in an effort to be more #ecofriendly with our packaging. Plus, it just looks cuter, am I right?? πŸ˜‰#kindredoak #oakgreylabel #handmade

Today I told Nixon that the dog is actually his sister just so he'd stop asking me when he's going to have a sibling..... that's fine, right? πŸ˜‚
#flashback to our event with @westelm just a couple weeks ago and the #kindredkindness activity we had out.... coloring pics for littles in the hospital ❀ We have something exciting coming for our event with @Madewell on May 4th too so stay tuned 😏

Hahahaha I'm sorry, but how funny is this?! πŸ˜‚ #Cactus #fridayfunny #earthday

These little munchkins 😍😍 gah.
I'm pretty sure this real romper is my favorite color ever. Which color would you choose? Teal, grey, or black? πŸ“·: @august_belle

Entrepreneurship is such a strange, crazy rollercoaster. Especially if you already suffer the highs and lows that depression and anxiety bring. I think it's interesting how no one ever talks about these things (Or maybe they do, and I'm just not finding the right sources for encouragement πŸ˜‰ I mean I'm totally up for suggestions here). I understand why though. It's a hard battle and it's something so vulnerable to share with others where we are STRUGGLING and not perfect. Even as I sit here typing this, I shake a little {as if I was giving a public speech or something haha}
Truth is, though, isn't that kind of one of the beauties in life? Being different? So why not share it? And all of these struggles and trials are what makes everything so great when you finally achieve that oh-so-longed "other side" of success. I find entrepreneurship and depression/ anxiety to be very similar in these ways. And so sometimes you have to make yourself remember those things and change your mindset to be more CONFIDENT. And some days, those are the thoughts that keep you going. Those are the things you have to remember when you're having a hard time getting through those never-ending obstacles πŸ’ͺ🏼 YOU GOT THIS πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ #kindredconfidence #entrepreneurship #depression #anxiety #dontgiveup
