Happy Mother’s Day!

May 8, 2015

baby bump, preggers, maternity style
You are a mother.
From the moment this little life flickered into being, you are a mother…
During the first few weeks of disbelief and awe, you are a mother…
With the bone aching fatigue and rolling stomach, you are a mother….
In the first photograph of the miracle inside of you, you are a mother…
At the quick bubbles and flutters deep in your womb, you are a mother…
With the kicks and jabs and baby karate going on inside, you are a mother….
As you wait and build and dream and hope, you are a mother…
Celebrate your first Mother’s Day, little mama. Make it a happy one!

As a lover of all creative endeavors (music, writing, design, art), dreaming about our new nursery was one of my favorite pasttimes while I was pregnant. Have you started whiling away the hours dreaming up nursery design schemes?! This was my mood board for our Bohemian Baby Room! I wanted it to be comfy, cozy, and inspiring for our little girl. You can see some of my inspiration photos below…lots of jewel tones and pattern…indigo, magenta, gold, turquoise….whimsical and fun!

Things We Love: Yoga Glo

May 5, 2015

prenatal yoga, mindfulness, lake life
Taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of that little Bean inside! I know you already know that, but some friendly reminders never hurt 🙂

When I was pregnant and working hard everyday, I didn’t have time to go to a prenatal yoga class or the gym. Thank goodness for YogaGlo. Have you heard of them? YogaGlo is an online yoga studio…with some of the BEST teachers in the world teaching their classes…all at your fingertips! YogaGlo saved my life during those 9 (cough..cough…10!) months. They have wonderful prenatal classes that I could take whenever I had time. All I needed was my mat and a quiet room – all easily found pre bebe!

Check out YogaGlo – you will love it, I promise! For only $18 a month (First month is free!) you have hundreds of classes to choose from. That’s the price of a single class here in Hermosa Beach – even my husband couldn’t disagree with that deal 😉 www.Yogaglo.com

Cheers to you, lady!

To Give is To Receive…

I received these gorgeous “virtual flowers” from my amazing sister today as I’m battling a spring cold. What a lovely little pick me up – I feel better already! And let’s be honest, even if these beauties were actually sitting on my counter, I wouldn’t be able to smell their deliciousness anyway – so this picture is just as amazing!

Why not send a friend a virtual pick me up today? A joke, a pretty picture, maybe a note that says I Love You! It’s very easy to get wrapped up in ourselves, especially when we’re baking a little one inside! But we cannot forget all the wonderful people around us who support us every day.

Send a loving thought their way…you’ll get just as much out of it as they will 🙂

Stop and smell the roses, dearies!

Isn’t this beautiful? I want to be wild, beautiful and free just like the sea. The sea has such a calming presence. If you are lucky enough to be near the ocean, walk out and watch the waves today. If not, that’s ok….simply close your eyes, and hear the waves crashing on the beach at your feet.

Breathe in and out.

Feel your rhythm as sure and as steady as those waves.

Never ending…..ebbing and flowing….wild, beautiful, and free.

Have a wonderful Wednesday, lovelies!
