aruffledlife I'm just finishing up #GIRLBOSS and it has been a book of business revelations. Sophia Amoruso blew my mind when she stated that failure doesn't need to be this thing we fear...it shouldn't get in the way of us taking a leap into the risky unknown because failing isn't failure, it's lessons learned. She's a @nastygal Boss Lady. My goal over the next few months?...don't fear failure.

aruffledlife None of us can seem to shake this cough but Charlotte is in the most high spirits every morning anyways...I may have a morning child and I'm not sure how I feel about it! #nuggetcharlotte
Also this beautiful blanket was a gift from my friend @andreavhowe when Charlotte was born. Andrea gave me several items that she used with her daughter and they felt so special because they had been loved by another mama and baby girl. I loved the idea so much that I think I will gift some of my favorite items when my kiddos are older.

aruffledlife Okay this dress by @breelena was breathtaking. If I were rich and famous I would have bought it off her model and worn it to the oscars. (Obviously I would be skinner too and would fit in this amazing dress because in the alternate reality where I am famous and rich I have a nutritionist and trainer. But I digress.) Tonight at the kickoff of #Provofashionweek I was lucky have @fiore_lane as my +1 and I can't wait to see what more the designers have in store! 6d

aruffledlife Being a mama of two kids is such a wonderful, tiring, rewarding, and stressful ride. Sometimes you think you're doing great and then your two-year-old says "shit" all day. And then sometimes you think you're the worst and your toddler cups your face in his hands and says, "mommy I love you...and I peed on the floor." I love them more than oxygen. @emmylowephoto 2w

aruffledlife Portraits for new blog design
Thank you @emmylowephoto for making me feel very lovely
Also, this is seriously the first time I have scheduled a photo shoot just for the purpose of having a good portrait of myself and it felt a little bit like I was documenting myself at this moment in my life. My body has birthed two children, my hair is different than it ever has been, and I no longer feel like I'm in my adolescence. I'm pretty proud of the direction my life is going, but even more excited/anxious/nervous about the future. I hope someday to look back on myself in this moment and simultaneously think "she's a babe" and "what a dork...she has so much learning and growing ahead of her".

aruffledlife From my limited experience, parenthood is 85% sleep-deprivation, 15% cleaning, and 100% incomprehensible love. Cheers to sleeping in the next life! #mysleepingnuggets #nuggetliam #nuggetcharlotte
