The medals in the above picture all belong to my ten-year-old daughter. Did she earn them for winning a soccer tournament? No. Did the team receive them for having an undefeated season? No. For the last 6 years, my daughter has been given these medals for “participating” in the sport.
We’re kicking off today’s Friday Favorites with one of the most up-and-coming blogs to follow. If you haven’t seen Rosemary and Lace, you don’t know what you’re missing. Blogger Michelle LaPorte takes fashion to a whole new level. She highlights affordable clothes and makes them look like they’re right off the runway. She proves that you don’t have to spend a ton of money to look good. I used to work with Michelle and she was always the best dressed. It’s no surprise that she started a fashion blog and it has blown up. So much so, that she is going to be featured in a national magazine! Besides fashion, Michelle chats about home decor, beauty and fitness. You can also follow her onPinterest, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
Treat people how you want to be treated. That was engrained in my head at a very young age, and I now say it to my children everyday. It baffles me how many people don’t follow that in their personal and professional lives.
