Easter Outfit ~ Simplifying My Life

I cant believe Easter is this Sunday. I swear just yesterday it was the first day of fall. Two seasons passed in the blink of an eye! I love the month of Easter. The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and the smell of fresh mowed grass is in the air. What’s not to like? Ps. how adorable is my little man Beckham. This kid is always so happy- couldn’t love him more if I tried.

Lately i’ve done a lot of praying and soul searching. My life has been so crazy busy lately. So busy- that I felt like I was failing in every category. I was trying to be the “perfect wife,” Perfect mom,” “perfect employee,” and I just cannot do it all. I am not super woman- no matter how hard I try. With a husband who travels, and two little munchkins who need their mommy, I knew I needed to make a big change. Today is my last day at my dream job. I started my job at Jane.com about a year ago and it has truly been amazing. I am sad to leave such an amazing company. I mean, who can honestly say they love their job (besides being a mom) and actually enjoy what they are doing? Although it is a sad day, I know I am doing this for the right reasons. Working full time with two kids is tough.Id sometimes stay up till 2 in the morning, so I didn’t have to work while they were awake. I am so grateful I was able to work from home and around my kids schedules, and for a husband who supported me every step of the way. However, I cannot wait to spend every minute of every day with my two little miracles. I can’t wait to not feel so busy and on a tight schedule every second of the day. My boys will only be this little for so long, soon they will be all grown up and I don’t want to miss a thing. So, here’s to long cuddles, trips to the zoo, and laying on the grass watching the clouds roll by. I’ll try to continue to document our life on the blog- because its something I can include with them. I hope you will all continue to read as I transition Kiss Me Darling from Fashioned focused- to a lifestyle blog. Family, fashion, baking, you name it! This is my life- and I love it. 🙂

    Great customer service, I exchanged a larger one for my previous one and they were just the bees knees. I purchased this dress as a back up dress for my company's annual holiday party.
