sweet family shoot

On Motherhood

14 February

Yesterday I saw a little boy give his mom flowers and it just melted my heart.  One day my sweet boy might give me a flower, or draw me a Valentine, and the thought of that just makes me oh so emotional.  (Side Note: Aren’t boy hearts the best?  They’re just the best.)  For now I’m good with baby hugs, cuddles and giggles.  Also when I catch Rex staring up at me with those sweet big deep blue eyes… I mean it just doesn’t get better.

I think I’ve mentioned it here already but motherhood has opened my eyes to the sweetest world and I’m loving life more than ever before.  I had no idea I would feel this way–this much love–and as someone who’s never been baby crazy I’ve been surprising myself.  Since today is the ultimate day of love I don’t feel guilty for adding a bit more sap into your feed!  In fact, we could all use a little more sap, love, and lots of x’s and o’s.  Happy Valentine’s Day! xx


And about the look | I actually bought this dress back when I was pregnant but only got to wear it a few times before the bump just wasn’t fitting in.  So happy to get the chance to pull it out again and can’t wait for warmer days to come.  It’s such a good one and went on sale recently–(unfortunately it’s only available in XXS now but if that’s you, you totally need to snag it!).  Also loving this same style, different print from their spring collection which just launched.  I can’t get enough of this sweet line.  It’s everything I want to be wearing these days.
