Because Life is Too Short

Because Life is Too Short life outside-the-box...raising amazing humans...learning and experiencing other people and cultures.....serving.....leaving a legacy I can be proud of....having no regrets!

These are the things that matter to me. The things that keep me awake at night. Twenty years from now when I'm looking back on this season of my life, I want to know I lived with passion and purpose, that I spent my time doing what truly matters to me, that I lived true to my priorities and values.

Years ago, I was hanging out with close friends and we got into talking about our life goals, what and who we wanted to make sure we didn't become. One of my girlfriends, whom I had known since childhood, looked at me and said "You have always lived 'larger than life', making your own rules and just going for the things you'll be fine!". Fast forward several years, marriage, 4 kids, a mortgage, car payments, dance recitals, ski practice, piano lessons, learning differences, puppies, bills and bills and bills and well....I felt ANYTHING but 'larger than life'.

I felt overwhelmed. I felt unappreciated. I felt lonely. Many days I felt like a total failure. I felt unappreciated. And probably worst of all, I often felt completely invisible. In all the joys and chaos of life and kids and family, I had totally lost ME.

I knew I had to make some changes. REAL changes. And I had to figure out how, despite feeling overwhelmed, and despite endless to do lists.

I had heard a million times about the need to take care of myself, the importance of self-care for moms. But when finding time to complete a thought was impossible, how on earth was I supposed to find time for self care?

Losing my mom was a huge wake-up call. How did that happen? How did time go by so quickly that the one person who was always there, who was supposed to be always there, was gone?

My product line was born out of that season of waking-up...of experiencing my beautiful, hard-working, sacrificing, selfless, amazing mom leave this earth. The old adage 'life is too short' became painfully, gut-wrenchingly real.  And I realized that waiting until "I had time" (ha!!) to take care of and re-discover me would result in it never happening.

My product line represents my commitment to finding a way to make time for self-care, and to re-discover my purpose and passions and the things that feed my soul. Even when I am overwhelmed and the to-do lists are never-ending.

I hope you will enjoy browsing my store as much as I enjoyed finding beautiful, purposeful, soul-filling ways to nurture ourselves in the midst of the beautiful chaos.
