Check back for a new Mom Crush every Monday!
Mom Crush Mondays
Visit this page weekly for my Mom Crush Monday picks! This list of ladies is full of inspirational, real mamas. I really believe in community over competition and in the power of some mom-spiration!
I've spent lots of time deciding who to give my time and attention to and follow, who I relate to, and finding moms who make me want to be and do better, moms who are keeping it real. And lucky you, because here they are all in one place for you to read about!
Oakley, Nothing Down About It
Oakley is a gorgeous blondie, mom of three and author of the blog Nothing Down About It. I've been following her journey for years. Oakley's middle child, Welles, has Down Syndrome. She is so honest with her story and how scared and worried she was initially. But her outlook today brings me to tears on an almost daily basis. Her advocacy for her son, her appreciation for the elevated quality of life he has because of his perspective... it's just so touching and inspiring. Do yourself a favor and watch this quick video (have a tissue or two handy!!)
There's no way I could list my mom crushes and leave out this lady. Is there anything Joanna Gaines can't do? I'm so inspired by her simple style, big heart, and family values. Watching someone stay true to herself while growing to such huge fame is #goals.
Even though Fixer Upper isn't being filmed anymore, I look forward to getting glimpses into the life of the Gaines family!
