Mother of Beauty | An Interview on Black Eiffel.

I have exciting news today, friends! About a month ago I received an email from the author of one of my favorite blogs. I've been reading Black Eiffel almost as long as I've been blogging. The author, Rachel is highly respected and admired for her original and thought provoking content. And her Music Monday posts? They're a highlight of my week. 

I was honored to read in the email that Rachel wanted to include me in a series of interviews by women she finds inspiring. In my interview I share my thoughts on raising five children, keeping balance and my creative process. 

This occasion called for some new images of me with my children. The last time we attempted was a year ago when Oliver was still very much a baby.

One sunny afternoon Lindsay stopped by to play photographer. Unfortunately, the children were more interested in romping around the yard but somehow Lindsay managed to get some shots that I'll cherish forever. The pictures are a good representation of what life is really like right now in my life. Living with five children isn't posed. It's spontaneous, playful and sometimes it's chaotic.

You can read the interview here on Black Eiffel. Thank you, Rachel for including me.
