"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." #MLK So many times on this journey of life, I check in and ask myself if I'm fulfilling my purpose--if I'm doing my part. How can one know? We can't, because change can only be seen in the rearview mirror. We have to trust our instincts, follow our passions, and fearlessly stand up for what we believe in. The first step is always the most terrifying, but also the most crucial. One step could be the catalyst for great impact. Stand for something. Do something. Be something. #MLKDay#Inspiration#Journey#Faith#TrustYourGut#Passion#Drive#Love
Winter Sundays in the city never fail to present a challenge with the kids. We are surprising the girls today by taking them somewhere entirely cliché that better live up to every magical expectation!! Stay with us on instastory. #CanYouGuess#MommyMoments#NYC
The mornings are always the most stressful part of my day. Getting everyone dressed, fed, and out the door on time seems nearly impossible. If I catch myself starting to boil over, I'll do something silly like sing a funny song or do a whacky dance to snap back into the moment with the kids. I do it shamelessly in public, too. It's always hard to remember not to get worked up in the hustle bustle of the AM rush, but I find this really helps Stella from having to say, "Mommy, why you bein' mean!?" #WhoMe#Never#EndlessPatience#Not#TheseAreTheDays
In today's news: I may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I'd rather be someone's shot of tequila. And in case you missed it, more revelations about what having a blog means to me on the blog (cuz where else?!) now. Link in bio. P.S. This is my actual #ootd captured by fellow mama/city sister/fab interior designer after nursery school drop off. Love you @mbliving!
Sometimes we all need a warm hug. ☃️ Thank you for the all the virtual hugs and kisses you fine people gave me over the last day! To say I'm touched would be a complete understatement. 🤗 So much love for this inspiring community!! #FeelingTheLove#Olaf#WarmHugs#StellaRaquel
It's chilly in NYC and it's even chillier in the blogosphere when people start throwing snowballs. A very candid chat about hurt feelings and my goals as a blogger featuring snow photos with the fam from yesterday on the blog now. Link in bio. #IcyReception@edellecarmelkenny
My favorite winter accessory is undoubtedly the statement boot, but more on that later. Now you must check out the unbelievable selection of heavily discounted Valentino boots like these over at @amuzeinc! This sale should be illegal. Bubby would be proud. @grantfriedman#designer#luxury#valentino#sale#amuze
