Yesterday was one of those days where I was thoroughly exhausted and no amount of Obagi Elastaderm Eye Cream (my fave.) or concealer was going to change the lovely dark under-eye circles that slowly developed throughout the day. I got three hours of sleep the night before, woke up and did a segment for Portland’s local morning show, then got to chase my sweet running 1 year old daughter for the rest of the day. Side note- I don’t know how you mom’s out there with 2 or more kids do it, I am barely surviving one! I will get to 2 eventually (maybe?), just not yet. Needless to say, it was one of those day’s that we all have from time to time, pure insanity.
So I thought I would step away from the “chasing baby game,” blogging frenzy, and the obscene amount of laundry that is piling up and satisfy the inner nerd that love’s Jo-Ann’s Craft Store. Plus I could keep my daughter in a shopping cart which meant I could catch a bit of a break (you mom’s out there know what I mean). With that said, before I put the baby girl into the cart, I grabbed a sanitation wipe from it’s designated area and noticed something bright and cheery in the corner of my eyes resting on top of it. I leaned forward as to take a closer look and realized it was a pair of gorgeous, bright pink and flower shaped earring’s. At first I was confused as to why these unique beauties were sitting all alone so curiously-then I saw the writing above it, “random act’s of kindness” and a note inside that said, “enjoy!” This simple act of generosity was amazing and so very inspirational to me!
I thought it was important to share this beautiful kind act with you all, to not only show off my pretty new accessories from LemonKissed, but to also inspire you like I have been inspired! What would this world look like if we were always thinking of creative way’s to be kind to each-other? Who knew a pair of hand crafted earring’s could change my perspective so much and make an interesting day into one that left me with a smile…
