September Favorites in Design, Biz, and Motherhood

Welcome to October! 🍂

Another month down which means another month of reflecting back on the small blessings & moments of happiness that the previous month brought me. 


September was definitely filled with a lot of shifts in my professional, personal, and academic life -- I find myself really trying to focus on very intentional & specific launches; both my husband & I were now both in school again (I had the summer off, he didn't), so managing our time was a lot of trial & error; and just being back in school, although taking 1 less class than I usually do, really forced me to adjust the rest of my life to make sure nothing fell to the side of the road. 

With all these things on my plate & needing my attention, I definitely made it a priority of mine to treat myself & my family in small but significant ways. 

So let's do this!
