Beautiful Girl, You Can Do Amazing Things - For the Joy of Life.







Beautiful Girl, You Can Do Amazing Things

I remember my mom telling me numerous times growing up that she wanted me to have a better life than she ever did.
Not that her life was bad, it's just that parents only wish the best for their children.
At the time, I couldn't really understand it.
I thought it was sweet of her to say, but didn't she want to have an awesome life too?
After having my daughter, I now understand.
Every morning when I get her out of bed, I see the excitement and curiosity in her eyes for a new day.
I see her quickly look over her room to see if something is different and I say a quick little prayer that she'll never lose her sense of wonder. 
Watching her go through life's new milestones, holidays, and experiences makes life worth it.

I love being able to teach her and help her be the best she can be. 
One thing that I hope I can teach her, is that she can do amazing things.
My mom was the perfect example to me of that.
She went back to college when I was in middle school and started her dream business when I was in high school.
I watched her go for her dreams and it helped me realize that I should go for mine.
I hope that Oaklyn looks to me and sees my drive and motivation to be the best I can be and multiplies that by ten in her own life. 
She may be a little girl right now, but she is a little girl with great big plans ahead of her.
I cannot wait to see her life unfold and be there cheering her on during every new accomplishment. 
I think one of the best ways to teach our children that they can do anything they put their minds to, is leading by example.
It's quite the challenge to become the perfect example for her, but thankfully she's pretty forgiving ;)
I also think a good way is to cheer them on and help them along the way.
I want Oaklyn to know that I'll always be right beside her in each new journey and motivating her to accomplish her dreams. 

I was so excited when Aubrey from Ink Splashed released this adorable print.
It put all of my above thoughts into one beautiful hand drawn print.
It is currently hanging in Oaklyn's room and I hope that she'll always look to it for inspiration.
It actually inspires me to accomplish my dreams too!
Aubrey is incredibly talented and her prints speak for themselves. 
I love every single one in her shop and always swoon over the custom orders she creates. 
Because we love Ink Splashed so much, we have decided to team up for a giveaway!
We will be giving away one of the prints above to one of my lucky instagram folllowers.

What are you doing to teach your children they can do amazing things?
And what amazing things have you accomplished?
Let me know in the comments!

All my love,
