I am Mom giveaway

Moms are hard on themselves. Too hard.

I am Mom is a project started by Alicja Burnette, a great photographer, to encourage moms to tell their stories without fear and to support one another. Judgment gets checked at the door.

I’m proud to say that I have a prize package that will be given away to support the I am Mom project. Here’s what you get:

I am Mom giveaway package with free goodies from Mrs Ricefield

* A Penguinaldo poster with a booklet of activities for the kiddo

* A set of my customizable note cards along with markers and stickers to decorate it

* An exclusive painting for the I am Mom project (Lioness and cub)

* A small tote bag with a reproduction of the painting.

That’s a lot of good stuff. There are more amazing prizes too, from a variety of business. You need to check this out and show some support for moms of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds. Because it really takes a village. Let’s build it.


When you’re a mom of toddlers (survival tip)

Little kiddies running around can bring you a lot of joy. And messes to clean up. And time sucking chores (like laundry). And noise…

I love my kids with all my heart, but sometimes I need to regroup. So I find my quiet, my place of refuge and meditation. It doesn’t have to be fancy or complicated. For me? It’s organizing bookshelves. It brings me back to serenity.

What about you? How do you find your peace in chaos?


Even in their noisiest, they find a way to inspire me. Go figure.
