I’m admittedly horrible at updating this blog. I don’t know quite why, I like writing it, I have ideas about what I want to share but I just don’t make the time to do it. However, I try to make the time when something really sticks with me. Darcy turned one this week, huge HUGE. Like I said in the below, she’s brought more light to my life and our family that I ever could have imagined in my wildest dreams. No it’s not all sunshine in rainbows, but she is a gift I’m not sure we deserve.
In honor of darcy turning 1️⃣ I was going to post a photo from every month her life but then I found 10 from the last week of our smiley girl and just decided to do that! This gal has answered so many questions of my life, every day reminds me of the importance of a positive outlook & mainly that I couldn't be more fortunate.
So, it was a crazy week, month, summer, fine – year. But probably the most difficult thing for me this week was seeing the photos of the people in Houston. An old friend from college has an infant son with EB and while hugely upbeat and positive had to be concerned about the delivery of his fresh bandages. The photos of the nursing home took my breath away. Another friend shared that diapers are not considered part of the purview of disaster relief agencies so it’s left to places like Texas Diaper Bank to try and step up. Is toilet paper not a crucial item? Basic Sanitary resources are what these people need first and foremost. I was inspired by these things and decided to donate the proceeds from a little event at my apt to them. Being the Thursday before Labor Day weekend it was super low-key but as I posted, I’m so grateful to those who did come out and did support me and the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Any additional orders from this weekend will also go towards Relief efforts, specifically Mission of Hope which helps provide clean water, food and proper nutrition. Take a look around and hopefully something will speak to you too. AliSise.Arbonne.com
Thank you so much to those who came out last night to sip & shop to benefit #hurricaneharvey a few who couldn't make it asked about late orders so hoping to make a great donation with any additional orders through Ldw #dowhatyoucan #texasstrong #dogoodtoday #arbonne #linkinprofile #keepitclean #carbonneutral
I genuinely feel the need to thanks the two amazing women, Erin & Jess, who have mentored me. The more I learn about arbonne, the more I love. I’m so grateful to be able to have this outlet and think up fun ideas and execute them.
