Happy Monday skrillas. This past weekend I was thrilled to be a part of a Stella & Dot, fab'rik and GrayLee Designs trunk show. And on a sidenote I know you all are like ok Brooke, enough with the printed pants.....but I just can't get enough of them, ps my next outfit does not include them! As I was getting ready for the trunk show a piece of paper fell out of my wallet that I've had since I was 12 that was given to me by one of the best teachers I've ever had.......it read:
"Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay."
I have to admit that when I was 12 I understood the meaning of the poem but not to an extent that I do now 12 years later. The past 2 years of my life have taught me that although it may seem like dawn always goes down day.... it is your CHOICE to try to "stay gold". So, in this world that seems to be spinning out of control, how do you remember to "stay gold"?
My reminder is a beautiful 16 month old baby boy named Andrew Franklin Allen aka "doodle bug".
And now that I'm done throwing that thought-provoking curveball at you guys I would just like to say thank you to all of my readers that encourage and support me on a daily basis.....so I'm giving away a gold (and yes that was on purpose in light of today's post haha) Stella & Dot Renegade Cluster Bracelet. This little baby is on backorder through Christmas and has been seen on the likes of Katy Perry and Blair from Atlantic-Pacific. Soooo thank you skrillas and remember to "stay gold." :)
