Hi ladies! Today I'm getting super personal and opening up about motherhood. As many of you know, I grew up without a mother (more about that in this post here) so becoming a mom, especially to a little girl, is something that I do not take for granted. I'm sharing my #MothersPromise to Gracie!

Here are five things that I promise to teach my sweet little one...


Dear Daughter,

I'm writing to you today to share what I feel are some of the most important lessons/key ideas to living a joyful, healthy, and complete life. Know that there are many more things I will teach you along the way, but for now, here are some of the most important.

Serve Others

This is number one on my list. The only way to survive in this crazy world is to serve one another with joy. I believe that giving to others, and doing things for others is the key to happiness. I cannot express the immense amount of happiness I feel when I get to help someone or show them kindness and compassion. Honestly, humans are made to serve one another, and it is essential that you learn this at a very early age.

You Are Not Alone

In the age where social media is very present in the lives of children and teens, I feel that it's absolutely necessary for you to know that your parents, friends, and family are here for you 24/7, no matter what, all judgement aside. We live in a very terrifying age where bullying forces children to take their own lives. Sorry to be so heavy, but it's just the truth. I want you to understand that we are here for you no matter what you may be going through or facing; you must know that you are not alone.

Love Yourself

Something that every woman, especially, needs to learn how to do. I want you to feel confident in the woman that you are mentally, emotionally, and physically. Body image is something that I want you to understand and love. You need to know that the way you were created is a complete work of art, and you shouldn't ever doubt yourself. True confidence and happiness comes from loving yourself first.

Quality Matters

This one is more for fun, than anything, but when in doubt, choose the quality brand. Make-up, hair color, shoes, clothing. Yes, you may spend a bit extra up front, but you cannot beat the longevity of a great brand. There's a reason my Tory Burch sandals lasted 4 seasons longer than my cheapie sandals! This is why I chose to use Pampers Premium Care from Walmart.com for the first 6 months of your life <3 They were hypoallergenic for your soft, baby skin and of the utmost quality. Sure they were a bit more expensive than other diapers, but it was absolutely worth it.

Be a Leader

Lastly, always lead; never follow. You will grow up with examples of strong characteristics such as determination, motivation, strong will, and maybe a bit of stubbornness (not sure who you will get that from...) and these are all things a great leader must possess. I know that you were born to do something great with your life.

Love, always, and forever,

Your mama bear <3

  4. Well hello beautiful Elle. I want to say your daughter is lucky to have you as a mother. She will continue to grow strong and beautiful, like her mamma. And very stylish too, I am sure.

    Loved reading this and also love getting to see your beautiful daughter, finally. She is a doll. You two look adorable in your matching outfits. I love matching with my girl.

    5 things I want to teach my daughter:

    To be confident in herself and her beliefs.
    To stand up for herself.
    To say it's OK after making a mistake and learn from her mistakes.
    To listen to her heart and trust her gut feelings.
    To always believe that she is beautiful.

  5. Awww...this is such a touching post. Your daughter is such a cutie!

  7. I read both this post and the one about your life without parents. Thank you for sharing this story with us! We should all remind ourselves every day how lucky we are being able to live a happy life today. I am soooo grateful for my life! Thank you for reminding me about that :)
    My little one is 11 months now and what I want her to know is that she is not alone on this planet. She is responsible for the future of the world, as is everyone on this world. I also want her to know that she is always loved, that she can do whatever she wants to do in her life, that she is free and powerful and that we will love her no matter which path she chooses.
    And by the way, we use cotton diapers because of the chemicals in pampers.

  8. I could not love this post more! You two are absolutely adorable!!

    xx, Elise
