Hello There :)
I know you all stop by for design inspiration and event ideas but I've decided I'd like to start including some more personal posts to the blog.
This blog is all about Jordan Santos Design and as this is a one woman machine right now I figured it's appropriate to include bits and pieces of what's behind the business. If you'd really rather not know about what's happening behind the scenes no worries.... all the design posts that you've come to love will still be here.
So to get started I thought I would formally introduce you to my 2 little ones. To know me, is to know that I am a mom. As a child I didn't have any huge career ambitions, sure I wanted to have a job, go to college, pursue something creative.... but I dreamed of being a mom. All of my pretend play revolved around baby dolls or playing house in some way. My dreams came true 7 years ago when Isaac made me a mom (albeit sooner than I had imagined). Since the first moment I held him I knew that this was IT for me. This is what I was meant to do. While motherhood has come with more challenged than I ever imagined it has also come with every bit of joy and fulfillment that I dreamed of as a little girl.
So without further ado, here are my kiddos...
Isaac - 7
Isaac is everything I could ever dream of in a little boy. He is sweet and kind and wouldn't hurt a fly. 7 years have flown by and I thank god every day that I get to be his mom. He is patient and loves me like no one else ever has. I think a little piece of him will always be a momma's boy. He is in first grade and continues to do an outstanding job. The boy has been about the easiest child on the planet.... I can't think of one time he's been in trouble outside of the home. Pretty much everyone that meets him says the same thing.... "WE LOVE HIM!".
gracie - 1.5
Now I introduce you to my little Gracie. If there were ever an opposite to my Isaac, it is surely Gracie. She has been a ball of energy since the day she was born. Crawling at 4.5 months, walking at 10... she literally NEVER stops. She is full of spunk and giggles and I love her fiery personality more every.single.day. She loves books, being outside, and playing with her brother. If things are not going as she sees fit she LETS US KNOW! This little girl is giving me a run for my money but I am enjoying every single moment.
Well that was fun. It's easy to blog about my 2 favorite little topics. Do you have kids of your own? Share a little bit about yourself in the comments below if you'd like.
I'll be back soon with some new design posts!
