It will be my second Mother's Day this Sunday, and I'm so excited for a day to celebrate my motherhood journey and mothers everywhere. As a mom, I can tell you that getting a thoughtful gift on this special day feels really good. It doesn't have to cost a lot, but we really appreciate a little thank you for all of the dirty diapers changed, all of the meals cooked, all of the crises averted, all of the tantrums quelled, and all of the putting everyone else first.

Well hello there! The last week has been interesting, to say the least. I haven't posted anything on here for a while because I've been struggling with what to write. And also because I was in Yosemite with my family and no cell service or WiFi. Minor detail. I got back last night and can hardly keep my eyes open this morning, but it's a busy week so I'll be drinkin all of the matcha!
This is a long one, friends. But please read it or bookmark it to read it later if you can't right now. It's important.
Over the weekend I watched The True Cost movie after many of you recommended it. The recommendations came after a post I did with Walmart last week that dredged up a lot of thoughts and feelings on fast fashion.
When we threw together Amalia's playroom in (literally) a week last year, we had no idea how much use it would end up getting. We spend a ton of time in here, but never really made it fun and playful for a kid vibe. We pretty much just pulled out our dining room table, swapped in a play mat, and called it a day.
