I Made A Simple Floral Arrangement With Greenery From Our Yard


I Made A Simple Floral Arrangement With Greenery From Our Yard- design addict mom
It's that time of year when the Jasmine trees in our back yard are covered in white blooms and their sweet scent permeate the air. I love the scent so much that I wanted to bring a bit inside, so I grabbed my garden shears and cut a couple branches from one of the Jasmine trees to make a simple floral arrangement.

I placed it on the kitchen table and you get a whiff of the scent as you walk by plus it pops beautifully against the pink colored walls.

Weekend Mood

Weekend mood- design addict mom
Seriously, I want to be like this darling cat all weekend. Do you think the kids will let me? xx


P.S. I was recently given the title of shero. I am so honored!. You can read more about that HERE. 

Maurices' Service With Style Campaign

A shero simply put is a female hero; a female who is courageous, exemplifies immense strength under stressful circumstances, and also manage s to give back to her community and family. Though I’ve never really referred to myself as a shero, I’ve been referred to as superwoman many times by close friends and family because of how easy I tend to make juggling family life as a military spouse, an educator, (now on a break), with a husband who deployed very frequently seem. Despite that, I was pleasantly surprised and honored to be recognized as a shero by Maurices as part of their #servicewithstyle campaign that highlights the work of military members, educators, working moms,


Today, I am thrilled to share with you some of the ways that I showcase #servicewithstyle in my everyday life.

This gorgeous jacket that can easily be dressed up or down from maurices.

As an educator with over 10 years experience (now on an hiatus) my service to my students, parents, and greater community was of paramount importance and work would usually spill over into my home life. You could usually find me working until the wee hours at home and although I do miss being in the classroom, service to my family had to take center stage as we faced multiple deployments as a military family.

Being a military spouse can be very challenging and worsens when young children are involved. In my case, I wanted to help make my boys transitions throughout each deployment as easy as possible, so I came up with the idea to install a map wall in their bedroom. As a member of the Special Forces Operations my husband has seen more than his fair share of deployments. After about the 10th deployment, I stopped counting… Sometimes, we wouldn’t readily be able to communicate with him and this map mural helps us to feel connected.

 I love this floral Summer dress from maurices. It’s casually elegant and I can make a donation run to Goodwill in it or accessorize and add a jacket, and voila, I have a more formal look.

Raising children who understand the importance of giving back, who have empathy, and compassion for others is very important to me. Several times throughout the year, the boys and I make a donation to our local Goodwill and they are very involved in the process. They’ll even set away toys and books that they no longer need for “donation day.”
