This past weekend I got some time away for a “Friendcation” with one of my very best friends. •
We’ve been friends since we were 9 years old and have seen each other through our happiest days and some of our very saddest. •
So often we talk about how rare our friendship is...how so many other women we know don’t have this kind of friend. I truly don’t take it for granted because I know how rare and special it is....but it also lit a fire in me to help other women cultivate this same type of connection with other women (because it takes intentionality) and we’ll be inviting you all to learn how in the upcoming months. •
As much as I thought I would never be someone who “needed” female friendships (I grew up hanging out with a majority of guys and a few girls) I couldn’t have been more wrong. These friendships have truly held me up and helped me grow into who I am today. I am beyond thankful for you Erin. • 👉🏼Tag a friend you’re thankful for.

i’ve chatted a bit about ethical fashion on here before. it’s something for the majority of my life, i never thought about. but, once i started thinking about it, it became really hard to stop. like, thinking about a child, only a few years older (or not even) than my son, making clothes in a sweatshop, it’s heartbreaking. even still, it took me a while to get used to the idea that good quality, sustainable garments, cost more. i started following @thegarmentlife a few years ago, and it’s such an amazing resource. most of the time it seems like everyone on instagram is trying to sell you something, and while @thegarmentlife does receive a portion of each sale during their pop-up sales, a) they are transparent about it, and b) they’re not pushy. if you don’t want it or need it or can’t afford, then don’t buy it!
BUT if you do have gaps in your wardrobe and are looking for responsibly made garments, this is the place to be. i’ve made several purchases over the last year, and they are the things i wear again and again and again (and reluctantly put in the wash). this travel pop-up, i WANT everything, but what i’m getting: a bathing suit, and an oversized boyfriend shirt - both have been on my list for ages.
although the dressy sweatpants and boxy tee’s and striped shirts and clogs and everything really are giving me all the heart eyes… i don’t need them. so i’m saying no and that feels good too! anyway, if you want to participate in this pop-up sale (ends today), use the code COMMUNITY10 for 10% off any of the featured pieces.

🎶🎥Watching Oxley enjoy the simplicity of a toy car is beautiful daily reminder for me to live in the moment and enjoy each day as a gift of it’s own 💝🚗🚙🚕❤️ #oxfordthemighty #itsthesimplethings #simplejoy #happycamper #enjoyingthemoment #lethembelittle #magicofchildhood #flashesofdelight #everydayagift #gratefulmama

🚘 A bright yellow Mustang convertible! And man was it HOT!
But it didn’t solve my troubles… I couldn’t cover them up with fun toys. I had to deal with those problems & the happiness of “things” was only temporary.
How about you? What have you purchased that only gave you temporary happiness?
Let me know below!

Enjoy ang bata! 😍 I love you so much anak! 😘 #EverydayWithCaius #SimpleJoy #JanCaiusAtTwo #ToddlerLife

Let's sleep na

Tonight on the side of the seat in the car I found this little guy asleep. Where he came from is a mystery (surely not from the plants purchased about 2 weeks ago? Imagine no food or water for all that time? ☹️) At the point when I discovered him I was in a concrete parking lot, no plants to be found, and I didn’t want to just put him out to die. I know how this sounds BUT I love all creatures great and small. During my childhood snails were my constant companions (among the butterflies, slater bugs, bees and ladybugs...) I’d rescue them from the garden so they wouldn’t be poisoned. Anyway an hour later and I arrived home with my hitch hiker and placed him in the daisy bush to begin his new adventures!
