So I just watched my first Super Soul Sunday on the Own network with Arianna Huffington and it was amazing. I am totally hooked on the show. Something really amazing happened while I watched that episode. The oh so amazing and inspiring Hollye Jacobs was featured with a beautiful segment about her book, The Silver Lining, with Elizabeth Messina. Then as I was watching the screen, Oprah put a still of Hollye’s website I designed!! I almost fell over in my chair I kid you not. I even took a photo of my television. I know, totally nerding out, but I just thought I would share. Such a cool moment for me. Anyway this quote from Arianna on that episode really stuck with me…

Working Moms Inspire Me

Being a working mom, there are days that can be so overwhelming. And yet it there is something so rewarding about it at the same time. There are many working moms in my life, and many I have never met yet they all really truly inspire me on a daily basis whether they know it or not. With mother’s day this weekend I thought it the perfect time to share with you just a few of these moms that I find constant inspiration and encouragement from.
