Hey Guys!

Eeeek! I’m SO excited to share this “Mommy and Me” post with you! I’m just going to start by saying it is SO fun to have a girl! I am loving this stage where she is my little sidekick and always wants to be like her mama. These precious moments where she adores tea parties and picnics in the park wont last forever, so I am going to make time and have as many as we can, as long as she will let me! As soon as I received these matching bracelets from Felicia at Devin Gem (local to Calgary!) I knew they were perfect for Ella and I and I couldn’t wait to get them on and twin with my little mini! Ella, the textbook girly-girl was possibly more excited haha. She is obsessed with dressing up in my clothes and shoes and loves to pretend she is wearing makeup 😂, so when she got a piece of jewelry of her own, she was quite pleased and wouldn’t take it off!  The bracelets are made of 12-24 Kt gold plated wire and clasp with glass beads and Swarovski crystals. Each gem on the bracelet is meaningful and represents things like peace, courage, confidence etc. Such a cool idea! I chose the “Baby S” because I am obsessed with pearls (they are the ultimate neutral and match everything!) and they are really so pretty.  Head over to the Devin Gem website or her Insta @devin.gem to check out all the cute choices!

Does anyone know how to freeze time so I can keep E little forever? Don’t get me wrong, there are certainly challenges to having a two year old, but I actually find her sass and determination quite adorable and when she is sweet, there is nothing in the world that melts my heart faster. These little moments make the tough days of mamahood all worth it.

We are headed for vacation in a couple days and I can’t WAIT! Check my Instagram @mamabydesign and snapchat (username lesleywanch) for updates from our trip!

Have a great week!


ps – I finally have Pinterst (Search Mama By Design) I just have to figure out what I’m doing 🙈. So let’s Pin! (Is that what you say? Lol)
