Purple is a color that represents royalty; that is what you are to me my sweet little girl. Jolene came to us in a whirlwind of surprise and unbelievable blessing. Jo’s entrance into this world was just as sweet and unpredictable as her smile. I had longed for this chapter. In myself, her mother, I see contentment, peace, and a dream achieved. I wish for these things to be hers one day. As a mother, in blood or community, we hope many of the same things for these little people. Collectively we hope as mothers and caregivers that they dream, achieve, and follow out the desires of their heart boldly. My dreams for Jolene are very much the same. I hope she surrounds herself with inspiring influences. I hope she lives unapologetically in her best life. I hope that Jolene follows her heart and inspires others to do the same. I hope that for Jo, acceptance comes from deep within her. To encourage these characteristics in this mighty 4 month old, I am doing my best to live up to these goals myself. I am thankful for the community of women I have around her to help lead to way to success on varied paths. There is no one right way to human. The most beautiful thing we carry is potential. I hope for you reading this that you have grasped your potential with both palms with finger tips ready to release your best today. After all, we are all royalty. Thanks for stopping by!
