Looking Ahead to 2016 + Mommy Moment


Happy New Year from our Little Lady!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I can’t believe we’re almost a week into 2016. We were quite busy over the holidays and I’m glad I scheduled some time off from blogging, but I missed connecting with you all!


With the start of a new year, I’ve decided to *hopefully* have more regularity in my blog post topics, including adding a monthly series called Mommy Moments. In this series, I hope to help you to get to know me better and, in turn, hopefully I will get to know you better. This series will be the first week of every month. The second week will feature a design from the Preperie Etsy shop – most likely something seasonal or one that’s in the works. The final two weeks of the month will continue the Preperie Parties posts. These can be anything from highlighting a custom design of a “reader at home” and how they celebrated with the special people in their life or ideas and suggestions for how to throw specifically themed parties. If you have a suggestion for a topic, feel free to let me know in the comments or send me a message at preperie@gmail.com.

And now, this month’s Mommy Moment . . .

“Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.” ~ Robert Browning

Isla is just shy of 17 months and every day I learn more about the young woman our little lady will be one day. Even through her toddler moments, I get the sense that she will grow up to be a loving, sensitive, and compassionate woman. We were with my husband’s family recently and someone tripped and fell. Thankfully he was fine but there was quite a to-do while we were checking on him. Isla sensed something serious had happened and went to check on him herself. Then I asked her if she wanted to give him a hug. She said “Yeah,” in her little 17 month old voice, gave him a hug, then proceeded to give everyone else a hug, too.

It’s moments like these that bring tears to my eyes when I get a glimpse of her sweet and sensitive personality. It also reminded me how lucky I am to be able to be a full-time mother to her so I get to witness moments such as these.

Have you had times like this that confirm the way you raise your children? Please share! I’d love to hear them.
