Yes.....Happy New Year in February!
Sometimes life is just too crazy to get everything done on time:) 
January was a tough month for me!   I have had a monster of a cold/cough and felt exhausted most of the month.  Just trying to stay current on Etsy orders and household and kiddo stuff.  Work/home life balance has been one of my biggest challenges with running a small business.

Its a day to day struggle for us all! BUT I give myself a full day-or most of one- once every 2-3 weeks that I can devote completely to business. Then I make sure that I devote a few days inbetween to NO work. Otherwise I try to work during nap time so my guy doesn't get neglected and I get some balance!

I just started following! I ordered the Valentine's Day pink and black leg warmers with the black heart onsie. So that was my favorite! But all of your stuff is AWESOME, and I can feel my bank account hating you! LOL

My day to day struggle is often due to my husband's schedule. He works swing shift weekly. It's confusing and hard to manage but when I get really down on myself and am really having a hard time, I look at myself in the mirror, say suck it up nobody said it would be easy and go pour myself a glass of wine!
Nobody go stealing my secret of success. ha ha

I have two boys and we like to lay out a blanket and all play together on it with cartoons on and a snack. It helps us come together and relax!

I really like the autumn warmers and the black and white ones!

I really struggle to get everything done. I {attempt to} work from home with my 7 month old. I'm frustrated most of the time and the house is a mess. I'm hoping one of these days I figure it out. Funny thing is that I was an awesome multi-tasker before my son arrived. Not so much anymore.
