Happy New Year, friends. As I think back on the past twelve months, the spectrum of emotions I feel are nothing short of confounding. The past year has been full: abundant in goodness, not lacking in challenges, and full of lessons. I birthed my son, assumed the role of motherhood, became a full-time working mama, launched my blog, and partnered with some incredible brands.
My New Year’s resolution last year was simple: to be more mindful and present, especially as I entered the season of motherhood, and this year, I hope to lean deeper into that resolution. Intentional motherhood, like intentional living and all things, is a daily practice. Time passes so quickly, and I have to remind myself daily to slow down, pause, reflect upon, and cherish these fleeting moments.
Whether you’re a first-time parent or a seasoned pro, parenthood — especially for anyone who strives towards minimalism + intentionality — can be a frustrating learning curve. As a new mama with an infant, I struggled to find the simplest of baby products — diapers + wipes — that married form with function, all while being safe, eco-friendly, and chic. And then, I discovered Parasol.
Parasol has revolutionized the diaper industry by offering one of the softest and thinnest diapers on the market, detailing their ingredients, and bringing ethical transparency to their supply + manufacturing chain. I’m honored to partner with Parasol to share more about their incredible diapers (hint: we’ve used Parasol diapers since Charlie was born and LOVE them). It’s such an honor to work with a brand I admire as much as Parasol — there isn’t a thing about their brand or products that I’m not in love with, and when they asked me to create some holiday content, I was thrilled! Their diapers are gorgeous (those prints!); hypoallergenic and free from: alcohol, bleach, chlorine, dyes, paragons, phthalates, latex and heavy metals; and eco-friendly + sustainably produced with the highest environmental standards in mind. Most importantly, they allow Charlie to be his hilarious, active self in 100% comfort + style (#momapproved).
