Balancing Act - The life of a Mom(prenuer)

I have a struggle that I think most Mom's have.
Balancing everything.  And I have realized that I can't achieve everything I want to right now.
Slowly I can, but not all at once, and not all right now.

I told my husband.  I wish there were like four of me.  The business me, the Mom me, and the me that lives in NYC and all I do is shop and go to the spa, and the me that would love to go to law school.  But there is only one me - so my life is a balancing act.

I have a bunch of new products that I want to launch and start and at the same time I have all these goals as a mom and things I want to do and see and go with my kids - Thanks to my mother who runs the business, I do have time for my family!!
But I can't even seem to find time to design the products, let along launch them - but I have learned that, that is OK.  patience, patience.

My most important goal is that I am there for my family first.  So I will share all of these great products with all of you soon - but I can't say when :)

And thanks to all of my customers past, present and future!  I love doing what I do - so thank you for making it possible.

Customer Photo - Cheery Tree

So I named this tree the 'Cheery Tree' and I think it get confused with a 'Cherry Tree'.  I guess now I have to design a Cherry Tree, so everyone doesn't think I don't know how to spell Cherry :)

I love the modern look of our Cheery Tree - One of our fabulous customers sent this photo of her Cheery Tree vinyl decal in her nursery.

I love the colors of this nursery.

Darlingtonia Moccasin Company - Store Spotlight

I found
Darlingtonia Moccasin Company
while blog surfing about a week ago.

I remember my dad always had a pair of moccasins when I was little, and I am pretty sure I donned a pair when I was in elementary school.  But these ones are actually fashionable (the ones' I had, not so much):

Oh and these also sell these overly adorable bow belts!

Berkley's First Birthday - Princess Theme

I can't believe I never posted about my daughters First Birthday!  I guess thats what happens when - between Halloween and Christmas there are two of my children's birthdays, 5 family birthdays and of course Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I had so much fun putting this party together.  I wasn't sure on the theme at first, but I of course ended up doing the whole princess thing :)

My friend made this adorable hat - the cutest party hat I have ever seen.

The candy jars were the funnest thing to plan and put together.

This cake was a 2 AM disaster, but I think it ended up looking OK in the end - not what I had envisioned though :)

I got the idea from a local cupcake shop to add the tiara's to the cupcake frosting tops - ADORABLE!

This outfit inspired the colors for the party.
