When Mama ain’t happy…

…ain’t nobody happy. I want to stray from the talk about our littles and talk about ourselves for a moment. Is it selfish or is it an act of love to put ourselves first?

Stay-at-Home Moms, Working Moms, Single Moms, Moms with one and Moms with five all have one thing in common… WE ARE BUSY.

There is nothing I love more than cozy and comfy fall clothing. As the temperatures begin to drop here in Northern California I look forward to breaking out all my chunky knits and jackets. Side note, for living in California I have an insane amount of jackets. LOL!
