Now that I am a mom, and have two little girls of my own, I am constantly reflecting on my childhood and what I want them to experience and not experience. It’s not that I want them to live in a bubble and not go through anything but I definitely wish that I can shelter them a little. I really can’t even watch the news anymore from all of the craziness that’s happening in the world but people share news stories on social media all the time so I do get glimpses of what’s happening. It’s something that would consume my every thought if I let it so, I decided to focus on what I can control verses what I can’t. These two are already so independent and headstrong, I know that when they become teenagers that we are going to butt heads but I am also hoping it helps them be leaders in situations and not followers. All that I can do is show them how to treat the world through my actions and my words. This summer, is going to be filled with lots of activities and lessons, why? Not only do I want them to be happy and always learning but I have realized how much they treat others based on my actions. Harper doesn’t get much interaction with other kids her age (another reason that I am ready to move) so investing in her soul is what has to happen for her to flourish.
This is the same way that I feel about supporting small businesses. Colored Organics is a 100% sweatshop-free, organic cotton clothing company that makes the best basic clothing for yourself, little boys and girls! This company was also founded by a MOM (you know this excites me!) that was horrified that the children working in sweatshops that produce mainstream clothing are not much older than her own. She started her company, and it now makes clothing with naturally hypoallergenic fabrics that create non-toxic pieces that are colorful, great quality and simplistic. I really enjoy finding SOFT as butter AND simple clothing. I am a no-frills type mom, and my kids wear what I think they wouldn’t be embarrassed about to look back at in photos. I feel like I have washed these clothes a hundred times, BUT the quality that Colored Organics puts into their work shows because they still look and feel brand new! Their summer 2017 line is nothing short of amazing and you’ll be seeing different pieces from it on all of my kids. This is hands down my favorite children’s clothing line for so many reasons! Take a few minutes to check out their story and fall in love with the brand just like I have. I have teamed up with Colored Organic’s to give my followers 25% off their purchase with code: LSW25.
