Here’s to the Mamas

We interrupt our regularly scheduled #ootd (that’s “outfit of the day” for the uninitiated) moment to bring you a heartfelt Happy Mother’s Day! Yes, it’s true that I love playing dress up, sooooo much. But my clothes, while they may provide a window into my mood or a little insight into my personality, don’t tell the whole story. That goes waaay deeper. I’m a mom you see. So, that trumps everything. There isn’t a thing in the world I love more, or that has transformed and improved me more, than my two beautiful daughters, Sophie and Emma. You want to see a real makeover?? Follow a mom’s journey and you’ll have a ringside seat to one of the greatest stories ever told, and retold, and told again. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cringe, you’ll be on the edge of your seat. What will happen next?!?! Who will win the battle of wills? Toddler vs Mommy. Titans both. Equal odds on the outcome. So, as Mother’s Day approaches I’m sharing my two loves with you. And a third. Singing. I love to sing to, and with, my girls. This song (may you, and Taylor Swift, forgive me for chewing it up), no fancy engineering, no auto-tune, gasp! …as if you wouldn’t notice… is just about love. Happy Mother’s Day, to daughters and sons and mums everywhere.

With love, Amanda
