My go-to pick-me-up


No matter how stressed, sad, lonely, upset, disappointed or overwhelmed I am, this little guy always makes me feel better. Always.

He reminds me to slow down and appreciate the small things in life. His enthusiasm and spirit is a breath of fresh air in a world full of negativity and unhealthy competition. His laugh melts my heart. When he says my name, I literally feel weak in the knees.

He is an amazing little boy and I feel so lucky to be his aunt.

Today and everyday appreciate the little ones in your life, whoever they may be – daughter, son, nephew, niece, granddaughter, grandson, godchild…

Rediscover the spirit, enthusiasm and imagination of your inner child!

    How beautiful! I feel the exact same way about my son- he is the best lifter of spirits I know. He’s only six months old right now, but I can’t wait for the day he says “Mama” for the first time- I know I’ll cry! Feel free to stop by my blog anytime- I host a weekly link party called “This Week the Trend” that I’d love for you to join and I’m currently offering free ad space! I hope you have a great week!

    Amen! My one year old keeps my spirits up even on the most stressful days. All we have to do is hop in a pool, set up a water table, run a bath (sensing a pattern here? lol) and this kid is splish splashing and giggling, which is music to mama’s ears.
