Happy Monday! While I said that I am taking a bit of a break online I wanted to tell you all Happy New Year!! Considering I’ve barely changed out of pajamas or jogger pants for the last week, I’d say I’m doing a good job at laying low and relaxing. As many people return to real life today I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for 2021.
Last year was so unbelievably special because of YOU!! The experiences and opportunities that came from your support, readership, comments, and genuine enthusiasm has been mind blowing. When I started this blog over 3 years ago I made a dream list of brands that I would want to partner with and I’ve been amazed that so many of those wishes have come true.
Every time I talk with a brand I gush about how amazing my community is. Y’all are my people and getting to share my life and loves with you is honestly the best job ever. As I reflected on the year so many amazing things have happened and wanted to share those milestones because I know it has been possible BECAUSE of you!
THE RECRUITER MOM Collections
This year I was beyond honored to partner with Gibsonlook to create two signature pieces. This process has been so fun to get more hands on with the design process. We talk about the styles you love, then I help design items with the Gibsonlook team that fit into your life.
This year that was marking my son’s Kindergarten graduation and sharing the backstory of how I started wearing Gibsonlook. Then later in the year it was finding the person blouse for our family pictures with our newest family addition, CIDER!

I also had a chance to recreate a curated collection with Cabana Life. Since my kids are such a fan of their swimsuits I decided to add them into the fun. I shared the collection and how we wore them at our annual Galveston beach vacation.

It’s funny to me because many long time friends have said “I hear your voice in your posts” and I always think, “well yeah I’m talking to my friends!” You are my girlfriends and so I’m very choosy when it comes to recommending brands and products.
This past year I have been presented with more opportunities than I ever could have imagined but MANY of them are just not products I would use or recommend. The ones that make it to my social media and on the pages of my blog are genuinely items I would recommend to my mom or best friend (and have!). I was honored to partner with these amazing brands last year.
