Cheerios, Hula Hoops and Ladybug Picnics…

I could not help but think of my childhood this weekend.  I remember being a very little girl, eating a very early breakfast and watching the Royal Wedding.

And even watching that real princess, I knew I just wanted something simple, quiet and easy in life.  My memories are simple and happy. Uncomplicated.






This weekend made me realize that my girls do not need a prince on a white horse or a castle or a diamond tiara to make them happy.

They need to know they are loved, nourishment for their body and soul, the ability to run around in the backyard, to learn how to hula hoop..

..and most importantly the confidence to wear a tiara for 4 days straight because they know they are already a princess.

    Thank you. I had no interest in the royal wedding, and this post was refreshing.

    Our girls will be princesses in their own way. 🙂

    I love this, my daughter will wear a tiara days on end, everywhere. Actually my son will too but we have a “no girl clothes outside” rule for him. 🙂

    That is beautiful. I love the video and what an amazing hula-hooper! I could never do that. I think she needs to do a vlog giving me lessons.

    She is definitely a princess eating her royal Cheerios. She needs no prince Charming or white horse to complete her life.
