A little about me…
Well, I started this blog initially as a creative outlet. I always found some comfort in writing when I was younger and like many things it was put on the back burner while life happened. This rings true for most. Things get put on hold or even forgotten.
And I missed it…
Since having children I felt that I went through this awakening…if that’s what you call it. This hyper awareness of everything past and present. Realizing past mistakes, current challenges, awaited victories and just a greater sense of self with this whole new outlook.
It’s hard to put into words and maybe it was the loss of my mother that caused this awakening but it has changed me. I’d like to think I’m a better person for it…my children have also given me new eyes as if I was blind before them.
Now this awareness spans into things outside my home as well as the little moments within it.
All of this has lead me on a path to new opportunities that I have welcomed and the ideas exceed that of just this blog and that’s exciting.
Here I can expand on those ideas and explore on the journey.
Where did the name Conlon Lace come from?
Both of these words have meaning for me and are a bit of an homage to my late mother. Conlon is her maiden name and Lace just happens to be one of my all time favorite things representing what once was simpler and less complicated.
What will you find here?
Conlon Lace again, sort of represents a simpler time, when things weren’t as hectic and we found comfort in the things that truly mattered. How to find joy in the simplicity and being okay with that is something I approach here. Living more mindfully through life, love, relationships and business and how it can benefit you.
I also share on my journey to become a better version of myself and my love for helping other women do the same.
Taking care of a family, kids, a husband, a fur baby, a home, building a business…it’s easy to forget to care for myself. A lot of us do this. It’s hard NOT to be consumed.
Getting older I take less time to overthink, more time to be creative, enjoy the still moments and let things go a little more.
I prefer to feel lighter these days. Things don’t matter as much. It’s the moments. The people. The creation of things. The experiences. The journey.
That’s what matters.
My intention is to spread more positivity, more love and more light…
- I am a wife and stay at home mom of two from Chicago
- I have a passion to help people live by mindful design in life and in home business
- Writing is one thing that brings me some calm in my everyday chaos
- My favorite song ever is Leather and Lace
- The simpler things entice me more as I have gotten older
- I find that a good laugh can heal most things
- Less is always more in my book
- Coffee and wine make me smile 🙂
Thanks for being here.♥
