Cloth diapering. Cooking every meal from scratch. Homemade play doh. These used to be some of aspects of what I thought would make me a "good" wife & mother.
_____
Then I started a business and life got FULL. The thing is, I didn't take anything off my plate- I just added more and more! And I was fixating on all the things I used to enjoy that no longer served my day to day reality. Something had to give.

What are you doing because you once loved it that isn’t serving you right now? What, if you really stopped to think about it, is most important to do in your day?
_____
It’s OK to stop doing something that was an important part of your life if it isn’t serving you right now. Priorities aren’t static. By taking time to re-examine them when things aren’t working, we can move closer to the life we really want to live.

Jacklyn Launi (@eventsbyjacklyn)

Sometimes the Lord had a way of slowing us down when we just can't seem to slow ourselves down. The last 10 weeks have held 8 weddings, a new Launi family business launch (@lollys), 2 birthdays, trips to Maine, Waynesboro, Nicaragua and two trips to Maryland, end of school year festivities, Busch Gardens, swim lessons, baseball games, fireworks, cookouts, beach trips, bike rides, farmers markets and numerous other activities. We have a tendency to cram our summers to the brim and last night within an hour of us getting home from Maryland the Lord said "enough." Our sweet little James broke his arm while attempting some sort of @ninja move. So today I took the day off and stayed home with my sweet boy and digested what his broken arm means for the rest of the summer. No pool. No bikes or scooters. No crazy amusement park rides. I think what it means is that we're all going to have to learn how to be still. Don't get me wrong. We still have lots to accomplish and things that we want to do but we're going to have to do them with more intentionality and with some rest built in. So pray for us as we hopefully slow our pace a bit and as we try to occupy the most active boy I know with calm and still activities. I'm already a wreck trying to keep him still and safe and it's only been 24hours! If you have any ideas for activities that are broken arm safe pleasure feel free to share!

“Are you having a good summer?” she asked with a hopeful smile.

I took a deep breath and felt just how tired I felt in my body.

I could see that she too was tired. A fellow mom and entrepreneur, she knows what it’s like to be juggling a very full life. And so I knew I could tell her the hard truth: No.

I was not having a good summer.

The intensity of that realization hit me like a tidal wave.

Summer is supposed to be a fun, carefree time, right?! I felt anything but carefree.

Lani | Featherlite Designs (@featherlitedesigns)

Inspired. I truly believe that certain people come into our lives at very specific moments in time, and only upon looking backwards can we see how pivotal these moments are.

Catherine was one of those individuals for me. So much more than a client. Layers upon layers of vision for the depth and expanse of @fromthegardenshed, how it would touch people, how she would create something so unique and thoughtful, so strongly intuitive that we would be captivated by every little detail.

It is such a honor to share these images with you, swipe over for a few small glimpses into the various touch-points we developed for Catherine's brand. Her website is launching later this summer, in the meantime give her a follow on instagram to find her latest market, pop-up, or swoon over her handmade lavender wands, sachets, and container garden designs.

"I DON’T HAVE TIME”
The fact is that Busy People do Best!
This business is meant to fit into the nooks and crannies of your life.
You already talk to people and you are already on social media. Why not get paid to do both?
Our team is full of amazing women (and men!) who are Moms, teachers, nurses, pharmaceutical sales reps, surgeons, business owners, CEO’s, Vice Presidents of companies, speech pathologists and SO much more!! And they all manage to do this business around their busy careers and families. Some do it for extra income, some do it to replace income, and some do it to have something for themselves.
No matter what your reason, we will teach you how to fit this business into your life and make the most of the small amount of time that you spend on it.

Hold the door, say "please", say "thank you"
Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie
I know you got mountains to climb
But always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you're dreamin' come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride
But always stay humble and kind. ❤️ #stayhumbleandkind

When you are having so much fun you forget to take photos. (Ok, except for the selfie in the dark while waiting for the next band.)

Feeling super grateful my A Team traveled by plane, train and automobile for a girls weekend in my hometown.

Lots of deep chats, laughing, lounging, eating and Hall and Oates sing-along-ing.

What are you feeling grateful for today?

Calling all fall and Halloween lovers! I could use your input 🍁 🎃
Halloween is never far from my mind, but now that we're 3/4 of the way through July I need to order yarn for my fall shows. Which of these colors reminds you most of fall & Halloween? Which one(s) would you like to see made into ear warmers/cowls/hats?
Thank you! 😊
