Coffee + Conversation



Happy Monday, friends. Its such a beautiful day in Charlotte today. The sun is shining at last and the warm weather is here - just in time for our last week of preschool. 

I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't a little nervous about the end of Madeline's school this year. My energetic school loves to go, go, go which is so challenging to balance with Connor's naps. 

Its been quite a while since I shared all we've been up to so let's grab a cup of coffee this morning and dig right in.

8 Lessons I Want to Teach My Children


As my fourth Mother's Day approaches this weekend, I find myself reflecting on my role as a mother. This year, more than the years before, I can really feel what an important role I play in the lives of my children. Maybe it is because our family is now complete. Or perhaps because Madeline is becoming more and more of a little person instead of a baby or toddler with every passing day. But, regardless, I find myself a little in awe of the job I have to do. It is such an important one and one that I feel so blessed to have.

I always knew I wanted to be a mother but its not really until you are in the role that you truly understand all it means. A mother's love is something fierce. How blessed and fortunate I feel to have been entrusted to raise my two little ones and shape them into the people they will one day become.
