in my city | cmoms consignment sale

over the past few years, i have been trying to shift my mindset in many ways. i have learned that when our first instinct is to find something locally or secondhand rather than buying it new, or to borrow for a day, we get better at leaning on those around us. and we become more aware of the importance of zero-waste and sustainability. though these actions often require a little bit more time and energy, i have found that they also bring connections and awareness. swapping with friends and buying secondhand has not only saved our family a lot of money, but it has also brought me closer to others. 

i often get asked where i buy the boys' clothes? ... mainly secondhand. zara, h & m, gap and some vintage pieces on insta are also favorites; however,  i really love local consignment shops and sales and swaps with my village of moms (so grateful for them). so i thought i would share a sale coming up this weekend for my charlotte mommas. 

february intentions

i recently heard someone say that coming up with a word each month to focus on did wonders in her life. my word for this year is wholeness ... so i am planning on coming up with 1-4 words each month to really focus on + to hopefully motivate me to create better routines and habits.
