My Inspiration for Rose Lining

Hello all! I always find it interesting to hear about the inspiration for someone finally starting to chase after his or her passion. I have always loved to write and was actually an English major before switching over to Psychology in college. My passion for writing goes as far back as I can remember. I would constantly write poetry and stories as a child, and I always thought that I would be a journalist when I grew up. Things happen for a reason, though, and I couldn’t be happier with the way things have turned out! This leads me to the main reason that Rose Lining was even created. I married the love of my life in June of 2014 after graduating college and working in human resources for a year.

We had an amazing time on our honeymoon in Riviera Maya, Mexico. It was so nice to get away for the week and be pampered with my new husband! We swam with dolphins, went on a sunset sail, snorkeled in the ocean, and many other things. Most of all, we relaxed and enjoyed the beach together.

Then I received the greatest gift of all about a year later in May of 2015 when our baby girl, Lana Rose, was born! She decided that she would enter the world about a week and a half earlier than expected, but that just meant we got to meet our precious girl even sooner! She was a tiny little girl, weighing in at 5lbs, 14 oz. Her many nicknames include the word ‘bean’. She gets called “Lanabean” a lot, but my favorite is when her dad calls her “Jellybean” because of how she looked wrapped up in her little blanket right after she was born. She is a daddy’s girl already for sure, and I am extremely happy about that. I believe the father is the most important role model in the family. There is nothing better than seeing your child smiling and laughing, because your husband is making some of the silliest faces and noises. I am also very thankful to be able to stay at home with her and watch her grow and learn every single day. She is such an inspiration. She is my silver lining, my positive and hopeful outlook, for absolutely everything. She is my Rose Lining.

I know all people can find a motivation like this in their lives that helps them see above and beyond all of the negative. Lana helps me confidently go after dreams like I never have before, because she inspires me to be the best role model and version of myself that I can be. This has encouraged me to create a place where I can share what I am passionate about. Rose Lining focuses on positive vibes and cherishing and expressing what you love in life. Rose Lining provides fashion and beauty inspiration for all women, along with an inside view into my family’s life. It focuses on feminine and chic looks that every woman can try. Rose Lining’s mission is to inspire all women to know that they can reach their full potential in every facet of their lives and can just have fun with their personal style. I love sharing what’s going on with us and any thoughts or inspiration that I come across. So take a look around and focus with me on the positive things that can happen in this crazy life.
