If all I could have were memories of tiny feet dancing and tip-toeing, it would be enough. Life moves faster when you have kids. You blink and they are crawling. Blink again if you dare, and they are running out of your arms. Try not to blink, for if you do, they will be heading out into the world. Remember, my little ones. Love with your whole heart, and be kind. Tomorrow you will change the world. Yesterday, you changed mine.

Well it’s fall y’all! And that means, copper, mustard, navy, plum, ruby and all the other fall staples are coming out! Who doesn’t love a season change to open up your wardrobe choices?

I’m all about fall layers and diving into my long sleeves and sweaters. But right now, my blazers are on repeat and I refuse to take this copper jacket off. It makes me feel glamorous, put together and let’s just say it, a bit spicy! Actually a lot spicy. Also, this blazer is so soft and it’s as beautiful in real life as it looks here. K wait.. that’s a lie, it’s better. It looks like silk and it’s smooth as butter babes!

Remember when you couldn’t wait to watch the door open when he arrived to pick you up for a date? Remember when he reached over and held your hand? Remember how it felt to show the world he was yours? Remember how he still comes home and opens the door to come home to you? Remember how he still wants to be near you? This is the real thing loves.

Are you passionate about what you do? Do you go to the gym every day and just kill it? Do you throw yourself into your work?? Do you take the time to painstakingly create a beautiful home? Do you grow your talents? Do you give 140% in your life? Your relationship is so precious and it is to be treasured.

You know when you’re a mom and a small business owner AND a stay at home parent AND the main keeper of the house… you’ve got to have some serious tricks to make it all happen. Doing things like cleaning my windows or dusting my ceiling fans ONLY happen if it’s going to be fast (cough.!. OR my mom or mother-in-law are coming to visit.. cough!) Because who doesn’t have time for that and yet still wants it all done? This girl!

First off, we all know I’m a mom. My kids come first and I place a huge amount of value on being able to buy beautiful AND affordable clothing and accessories. Let’s just say, with Filly Flair I have really hit the jackpot. I love their selection and I will definitely continue to buy from them. And right now they are helping me transition my look from summer to fall in a snap!
