Comfy tees, and why moms need time away…….
My mom is in town. And I'm not gonna lie, I've taken just about every opportunity to be by myself. I went running alone. I ran errands alone. I sat in my room for an hour ALONE. At first, I felt sort of guilty about that. I should want to sit with my mom and my daughter and play, RIGHT?
The truth is, I'm finally getting the hang of this whole mom thing ( I know, it only took two and a half years). And the key for me? A little balance. For the first year and a half of Lydia's life, I pretty much refused to leave her except for work. A run by myself? NEVER. Errands alone? Seemed selfish.
What I've finally realized? When I take a little time to myself…..I come back refreshed, energized, and more present. So, while Lydia is sitting in the other room playing with her grandmother…..I'm reading in blissful silence.
These pictures are from the conference I went to in Arizona a few weeks ago…..my last time to myself.

Now, one more thing. Molly and I are teaming up to do more than host our link up. We are teaming up to share brands that we love……brands that give back. Each week we'll be collaborating with one of our favorite brands to share the cause they support, and their amazing products. If YOU have a post (new or old) that features a brand that give back…..please include it in the link up. We'd LOVE to see it!
This week we are teaming up with Elegantees. Most of you know (and love) Elegantees…….are amazing (and comfy) tops that provide hope and employment to victims of sex trafficking in Nepal. Their tees are flattering, versatile, and a GREAT price. Pretty much, how could you NOT love them?
