I have been knee deep in work-work-work. I have been working hard to balance the life of a #workingmom. It is a constant struggle, but one I challenge myself on everyday because I wouldn't want it any other way. Being a working mom is truly a blessing which makes me grateful... Every. Single. Day. Earlier in the year, I noted my posts might not be as frequent but they will be quality posts! My Monthly Muse Features have now been taken over by my Weekly Muse Features on the Boy Meets Girl(R) Blog. Over the past year I have worked closely with photographer and friend Spencer Kohn to bring you quality content. It was important for me to show you who the Boy Meets Girl "Girl" is and what she is made of. I am so proud of this collaborative work and the features we bring you each week to the blog. On top of running my business, I provide posts as if I'm runing a magazine. Each post is curated with photography and produced by, me! So you can understand the brand through my eyes. I hope you have viewed and read the featured stories of the incredible women, men and even "muse couples. If you haven't, what are you waiting for? Click on the links below to read each story and let us know how you think! Thank you to all our muses for sharing their inspiring stories. I can't wait to see who they inspire into being our next muse. xo

Thanks to Daddy for capturing what Dylan Reid and I are wearing today. For the mommies out there who have sons you can dress alike. See how below :) The sun came out today and I got to have my special day in the park with my boys. Happy Mother's Day to all the incredible Mother's out there. This day is very special day and I am grateful every single day for this little noodle who makes me smile and glow everyday. xo

In 2014 I announced I had a bun in the oven and ran this Mother's Day Giveaway. I cannot believe how fast time flies by and how different (in the best way possible) life is with my boy Dylan Reid (yes I recently started an Instagram for Dyl not sure if it will exist when he is 12 but thought it was a nice place holder lol) and he does have his DJ name #DJDYLANREID and officially will be taking DJ classes very soon...yes they have Baby Dj Classes (no joke) watch out Dj Sha! Over the past two years I opened up about getting pregnant in this article on Motherly, was featured as a tastemaker here on Buru and was asked to join the HeyMama amazing crew of working Mama's and featured here on their site. Being a mother and balancing a career and maintaining this blog as well as contributing to several others and being the chair for the In Living Pink Gala this year is a lot. But, somehow I have found some kind of balance or shall I say I am still figuring it out. I did however have a recent meltdown on Monday after being on holiday with my family and Dylan. Being a working mom and then having 10 days straight with my boy made it very hard Monday morning to make the switch. It is a constant struggle that I think all working Mother's go through. I am so grateful for what I do and having my boy. I wouldn't change any of it as it makes me who I am. But, I do cherish every second, every minute, every smile, every giggle and every hug and even the recent mood swings ;) So for working or non-working moms this is for you for today, tomorrow and the future. Treat yourself. Happy almost Mother's Day!
