Earlier today at @alena_shannon ’s dance competition. — This child of mine is a gem. Alena is caring through and through. She is so full of kindness, patience and joy. I am so grateful that this sweet girl is the one I call my daughter. Alena is getting very close to her teen years and while we may have those mother/daughter moments where I’m drivin’ her crazy or she’s making me bonkers, our closeness through it all is something I value greatly. Parenting is difficult. Single mommin’ it even more so. But I want Alena to have a great life, so I put in the work to be the best mother I can be. I love my Alena more than words can express... and I’m overjoyed that she calls me “mommy.” 💐 Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms!
🌊Missing the ocean views... especially since temps in Chicago went from 80s to 50s. Thank goodness this is just a temporary cold front and our warm weather will be back soon! Also coming back soon: over the next few weeks, I’ll be getting back into my style and self-care posts again. Speaking of style, my blog has a shop page. Visit alltheambience.com/boutique and you can shop many of my current favorite pieces for spring & summer (including some of the looks I wore in the Dominican)! 👙
There is something so calming about being near the ocean with palm trees close by. #takemeback 🌴🌝
