Inspiration: My *Baby's* Birthday and Motherhood

Today is my *baby's* 3rd birthday...where did the time go? It seems just like yesterday that my husband and I were bringing him home from the hospital to meet his 3 older brothers...now that tiny baby has become a little boy, full of wonder, energy, and amazement for all that life holds. Before having my boys, I never fully understood how my heart could possibly hold so much love, or how absolutely willing I could be to sacrifice anything and everything to protect them, care for them, and how I could love each one of them uniquely, wholeheartedly, and unconditionally...now I do, and I thank God each day for blessing me with each one of them. The Inspiration I have chosen for today has to do with Motherhood...I hope you enjoy it.
*The Girl I Used To Be*

She came tonight as I sat alone,
The girl I used to be.

She gazed at me with her earnest eye
And questioned reproachfully.

"Have you forgotten the many plans
And hopes that I had for you?"

"The great career, the splendid fame,
All the wonderful things to do?"

"Where is the mansion of stately height
With all its gardens rare?"

"The silken robes that I dreamed for you
And the jewels in your hair?"

And as she spoke, I was very sad
For I wanted her pleased with me...
This slender girl I used to be.

So gently rising, I took her hand,
And guided her up the stairs

Where peacefully sleeping, my babies lay
So innocent, sweet, and fair.

I told her that these are my only gems,
And Precious they are to me.

That silken robe is my Motherhood
Of costly simplicity.

And my mansion of stately height is love,
And the only career I know,

Is serving each day in these sheltered walls
For the dear ones who come and go.

And as I spoke to my shadowy guest,
She smiled through her tears at me

And I saw the woman I am now...
Pleased the girl I used to be.

Sunday Shopping: J.Crew New Arrivals

Hello Everyone! As you probably already know, J.Crew added New Arrivals for Spring to their website a few days ago, so I thought for our Sunday *Window* Shopping together that I would post some of my personal favorites. :)

Chambray Maxi Dress available in Papaya and Grey Slate. Oh how I love this one...the online pic does not do it justice at all. It is just so cute and flattering on, but is a bit sheer so wearing a slip underneath is a definite must, unless of course you are wearing it as a swimsuit cover-up.
Need a less expensive alternative? How about this dress or maybe this one?

Perfect-fit Stripe Open Crewneck Tee available in Navy, Blush Stone, and Soft Dove at $29.50...love this one! :)
Similarly...this tee and this tee.

Bazaar Tunic Dress. I'm not sure if this one will work on me, but I do love the style and print...absolutely gorgeous. :)
Similar options here and here.

Similar style but different colors here and here.

Chiffon Stripe Tier Tank. I really like this one in the Light Ginger color...hope it's not disappointing IRL.
This one and this one from Anthropologie are really adorable, too.

Waterfloral Pastiche Delphinia Gown. Oh how I adore this dress! If it wasn't so incredibly out of my price range, I would seriously consider it. I love wearing Maxi Dresses during the Spring/Summer months and would definitely find a way to wear this one. :)
At least other retailers are also making floral print Maxi Dresses at lower prices. Not the same as the Delphinia by any means, but a nice alternative to achieve a similar look like this dress or this dress.

Mirelle Tote. I love everything about this one...the color, size, chain handle, and the little bow detail, too. I wonder if it would match my Dusty Rose Spectator Peep-Toes?

That's it as far a my favorites go this time around. What about you? Do you have any personal favorites from this rollout? I'd love to hear your thoughts...
