Oh shoes, glorious shoes, how I do love shoes! I often (and by often I mean daily) take for granted all the shoes I have. The shoes I have and wear weekly, the shoes I have but hardly ever wear, the shoes I have and never wear, but can’t quite bring myself to part with. I don’t think about shoes as a necessity or as a part of my quality of life, because there they are in my closet and I just select the ones I feel most drawn to on any given day. But the reality is they do reflect a piece of my life, a blessing that I have, a benefit I enjoy and even when I don’t consciously think of it that way, it is.
So confession, I love quotes… If you follow us on Instagram of Facebook, you might’ve guessed. But this quote really sums up the message and theme behind our inaugural Outside The Box, Kickin’ It With Kindness.
We’ve been talking a lot about giving back and living Outside The Box, well who says we can’t do that in style. I was completely thrilled when LNBF reached out to collaborate & sponsor this post. LNBF, which means Leave Nothing But Footprints is a clothing shop with an eye for fashion and a belief in making environmentally conscious clothing… talk about a win win!
Well, it’s official, he’s four. Another birthday has come and gone and my baby is a little boy. I know it’s been said before… the days are long, but the years are short. And this birthday was as festive and special as his others with one little difference, we hosted a mini food drive for the Houston Food Bank.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” –Mark Twain
This quote has been a guiding quote for me recently. I’ve talked a bit about what I’m doing now and what it means to let go and today I want to talk about our exciting next step. We’re launching Outside The Box by Cheeky Days, a subscription box by a family for families inspiring connection, creativity and living outside the box.
