moms rule

Attended the Mom's Who Make It conference last week with these darling ladies... Margie, Jefra & Rhonna. It was a complete blast learning from other moms. Some of my notes include: "Be brave, Challenge youself, Live your goals, Follow what your heart tells you & Be who we were made to be." It was empowering to be surrounded by other women who seek to find balance & although it is a challenge at times, it's important as we strive to fulfill our purpose.I stayed up way past my bedtime, laughed way too hard while taking photos & dancing. FYI:: I am a really dorky dancer... I should avoid it at all costs.
Speaking of dancing... Jefra & Rhonna started their fabulous class with a trailor for the movie FAME. How did they connect the dots with fame and creativity...? This quote from the movie below... love it! I remember Jefra having to repeat it a few times because we were so inspired by it and trying to write it down. :)

So sad I didn't know about this, I could have used something like this in a big way! I laughed when I saw the picture. Rhonna is the mother of one of my son's friends from school. Small world!

I have seen the Fame trailer a few times before movies lately. And each and every time it brings me to tears. It was my dream, as a little girl, to be on the show. I never missed a single episode. I can't wait to see the movie. And by the way, you do so much inspiring for others, it was about time you were given a chance to reflect and get inspired.

Reminds me a little of the Hearts At Home (heartsathome.org)conference minus the business input. An AMAZING conference if you ever get the chance to go. Leave feeling refreshed and ready to be the wife and mother God intended.

Oh goodness! What a small world! I was at the conference too. You don't know me...but I've started designing for your friend Erin's Designer Blogs. My name is Amy. But also Quinn is a good friend of mine and I also help her with Created By Mom. I was there helping with Registration and the little boutique. I'm also the owner of Lexi Lynne Designs, hair bows and headbands I was selling there at the conference. Anyway...such a small world. Love your stuff. I just saw you on Studio 5 too and came over to check out your blog and saw this post about Moms Who Make It. Wow...still crazy what a small world. lol
