sending love to all the mommys out there!! when asked what it's like to be a mother, most of us usually say, it's the hardest job, yet so rewarding. there's really not enough time to get into it.
luckily i have ten min right now as i'm prioritizing this post and i've only got 2.5 years of experience, but so far...this is what it feels like. like you're never giving enough, yet you couldn't possibly give any more. you look into your kids eyes and see your own. you get to experience childhood again and you finally understand what your parents have been talking about all along. u beg for time alone, but once you're on you're own, u miss the kids. you're able to function on only a few hrs of sleep and a 2 min shower. after all, you get to feel a love that compares to nothing...yes, its the best thing ever. aaand, i'm so thankful for my own mom. what would i do without her!

another one in the tank! an addition to the mer-fam coming next year! sorry we've been out of the loop for a few weeks, but we're back and with a belly! it's crazy!
so, it's still hot out here. one of my favorite things is when swimming pools have windows! whyyyy not!? can they all have them!? and topped it off night swimming under the arizona sky blood moon!
i get lot's of questions from mommy's wanting to know what's the best prego swimsuit...i'm telling you, you don't need a special pregnancy suit! since you're expanding, then tie side bikinis are really great...and just up a size in a bikini if you buy a new one! i love letarte swimwear whether you're a mom, a prego to be mom, a teenager, a 20 year old...what ever! it's the perfect fit for everyone seriously! the bum cut is amazing, the fit is just right, the tops are made for any shape, fabric perfecto...
i'll be reviewing and wearing lines that i've been wearing for years and new lines that are popping up, and you'll see what i'm talking about...so stay tuned with us. just because you're prego, is no excuse to get a "mom" suit. looking forward to the holidays coming up everyone!!! get ready for swimwear 2016! xox and love!
drink lot's of water, stay in motion, keep smiling, and play...makes doing what you've got to do to get where you want easier! sending love in my favorite what i call the suspender suit, by made by dawn! xo
it's hot, but she doesn't wanna stop! she's on an adventure, having daddy look for treasures in the pool filters, naming flowers and plants, following the sound of kidz to play with. her feet are hot, but that doesn't matter when there's momma around! her favorite place right now is the hotel called "palm springs." she loves putting flowers in daddy's hair, collects lemons that fall, drinks mommy's soda water, brings a rolling suitcase of 14 barbies, already has crushes on 4 year old boys, wants to do it her "self" and is not even 2. her favorite swimsuit is by emmanuela swimwear espesh because mommy has one also. stay tuned and shop the cutests mommy n me swimwear by emmanuela swimwear!!!! don't forget to cover up in greenpacha hats! "boos! (kiss)"-bardot
