This is so random but I regret ever trying boba tea. Now I crave it literally every single day. I’m meeting up with another girlfriend tomorrow to get my fix and it’s the second time this week. It’s so freaking good. Things have been so crazy for me lately. Good crazy. Work is going great and I’m still elated over potty training Milan. She’s still doing amazing and I couldn’t be more proud. I don’t know what it is but I have a feeling things are going to turn around for me. I don’t know why I feel this way but it’s better than feeling like crap right?
I’ve been surrounding myself with great friends who are real, don’t judge and make me laugh. Laughter is seriously the best medicine.
Awhile back, a reader reached out to me wanted to tell me her story. Ironically she’s also from Minnesota so we connected immediately. We began chatting on Instagram about her family, her dad and what her mom went through. She shared how her mom was always honest with her (when she was old enough) about everything. I don’t want to go into detail about our conversation but it was so raw and deep. It touched me to the core. Afterwards I felt a sense of hope for Milan. It’s amazing how two strangers can connect on social media and connect in ways that I didn’t think was even humanly possible. Just wanted to share. 🙂
My entire family and most of my close friends that know my situation have no idea how I’ve been able to survive these past few months or even the past few years. Some days I have no idea either. I just try to stay focused on Milan and my business. Both keep me quite busy. 🙂 Once the house is quiet, Milan is in bed and I finish up with work, it does get lonely. It’s a strange feeling because I’ve had a partner for basically my entire adult life. It’s definitely an adjustment.
As lonely as it is at times, how freaking blessed am I to be Milan’s mommy and get the privilege of raising her? To witness her milestones, to hug her when she’s not well, to be able to tell her how much I love her, to watch her grow and blossom, to pick her up when she falls, to dance with her in our living room to Frozen songs over and over, to eat every meal with her, to have her tell me I have bugs in my ear and heart when she plays doctor, to having her tell me she’s a garbage truck and not a toddler, to hear her say I love you mama out of the blue. The list goes on. Everything in my life has led me to her and for that I am grateful.
Coat: c/o Ann Taylor short trench coat (size 00P) | Top: c/o Ann Taylor stripe side knot tee (size XXSP) | Jeans: Topshop Jamie high waist skinny jeans (size 24×28, another option HERE) | Shoes: c/o Ann Taylor scalloped leather sandals
In love with this pink short trench coat. It’s currently 40% off! Sizing runs true to size. I’m wearing size 00 petite and it’s pretty big on me. The sleeves are really long which is why I have them scrunched up. I love the color and style so much I’ll probably pay to get the sleeves tailored.
These scalloped leather sandals were such a nice surprise. The leather is buttery soft, doesn’t cut into your feet at all and overall very comfortable. Amazing and would highly recommend (plus they are 40% off)!
How cute is this dress? Love the colors and perfect for spring and summer. Sizing runs VERY small. I’m wearing size XS and it’s extremely fitted. Decent quality for the price tag. The length is super long and I have it pinned up. I’ll have my tailor chop off the additional length – shouldn’t be too difficult or costly.
I’ve had these sneakers for awhile but keep forgetting to share them. They’re currently my favorite sneakers. The leather is very soft and very comfortable to walk in. Sizing runs about 1/2 size small. I took my normal size 5 and they fit me well. The tan suede color is on sale plus an extra 50% off. Such a great price!
