What a year 2015 has been! I’ve experienced my first FULL year being Jack’s mom, launched my own jewelry business, had my first Madewell store event, curated my own Mommy Mailbox box, collaborated with brands I love, and pursued minimalism with purpose and intentionality. Though I’m feeling eager and ready for 2016, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on my favorite posts here from 2015. Thanks so much for reading along and being part of this community!
