- Mom Crush Monday again! I love so many things about being a mom, but one of the most unexpected perks (for me) has been the mom friendships I've made...you know, the friendships with women who are truly in the trenches with you? The ones you feel safe confiding in about all your fears, insecurities, and horrifying mistakes because you know they've been there too. Good mom friends have been a safe haven for me over the years. And this beauty here...she's great. This is my friend Courtney. I 💗 her. Her friendship skills are top notch: she's loyal, generous, thoughtful, honest, and has the biggest heart. Plus she's super funny with a quick wit & she never takes any of my hubby's sarcastic shit, which I LOVE! Best of all, Courtney has the most incredible gift in her ability to make others feel noticed and important. I pray every Mom has a Courtney in her life. And even if you can't know "my" Courtney, you can follow her on IG @courtney_files
- besides being a fab friend, she's also crazy talented. She's a kick-ass wife, mom, interior designer, photographer, and lifestyle blogger. One of the things I admire most about her work is her willingness to let you have a glimpse into her life: from what she's wearing to mommy adventures to miscarriage. She's bold and brave and vulnerable, such a beautiful combination.
