Best of 2018 (plus favorite Mommy and Me outfits)

stylish petite best outfits of 2018

The year is coming to an end and it’s bitter sweet for me.  It was a tough year for me all around.  Many ups and downs but I have so much to be thankful for.  Milan is healthy and happy so I have no complaints.  I wanted to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU for reading my blog and for coming along with me on my journey.  You have no idea how much it means to me.  I love creating outfits for you, sharing my life as a mommy (the good and the bad), reading your emails and comments and helping you find amazing deals.  As cliche as it may sound, this blog wouldn’t be possible without your support.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I rounded up the most popular outfits and also my favorite Mommy and Me outfits of 2018.

BEST OF 2018 MOMMY AND ME OUTFITS

Mommy and Me outfit ideas

Looking back at all these Mommy and Me gives me a lump in my throat.  I feel so blessed to have Milan.  I know I say it all the time but I really feel like the luckiest mommy ever.  There are not enough words to describe the love I feel for her.  She truly is my everything and there is nothing I wouldn’t do for her.  I pray every single day and night for her health, safety and happiness.  Love her so much!  Thank you for following along with us on this wild journey of motherhood.  It’s been REAL to say the least and the terrific (aka terrible) two’s were a tough year for me.  I certainly have been tested (lol).  I’m very scared for the three’s but also looking forward to seeing what the upcoming year has in store for us.  I have a great feeling it may be the best year yet (minus all the meltdowns)! 🙂
