As a mama of two and a business owner, I have to toss out any idea of balance and stay on my toes 24/7 with a smile. Because there’s simply no way of doing it all, I honor where I am every morning and try not to set lofty goals. When you do, and you don’t meet them—you feel this sense of failure. Instead, I encourage everyone to set small, achievable goals so that they feel a sense of accomplishment every day. A doctor noticed sun damage on my eyes a while ago, so sunnies are no joke in my household, especially living on the beach. Electric goes above and beyond covering eye care. The owners are such special people and I love supporting independent businesses - there’s something very special about seeing another business doing great things that make this all so fun.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF DANIELLE

Setting the energy for the day is more important than ever.

1. The minute the babe wakes up, I say “thank you for my breath, this house, my health, my love, my kids, and a job I love”.

2. I hop up and set Gabriel in the swing with some jazz, a favorite since my husband’s family is from New Orleans, steep some tea and help my 2-year-old get ready for school.

3. After they’re out the door, I throw on something easy and nursing-friendly and quickly take a moment to ask for healing, luck, and love.
