Hi everyone I’m Amy from myrustichouse on Instagram!
I wanted to share a bit about myself with you. I love all things vintage, rustic, and thrifted. I am a mom of two teenage boys. One is graduating this year from high school and then will be headed off to college. Home decor has been a creative outlet for me as I was a stay-at-home mom for about 15 years. It has been a fun journey meeting all kinds of other amazing people who share the same passion. I love going to antique shops, thrift shops, and flea markets in search of all kinds of unique treasures to decorate with.
I received my first pair of Sandgrens clogs as a Christmas gift and it was love at first sight! I got the Brett’s and they are the perfect everyday shoe. I have had the privilege of working with Sandgrens for about a little over a year. It has been such an honor to be able to also help design a clog with them as well! The Monroe has become my absolute favorite clog. It’s so versatile and comfortable!
Since we are celebrating Mother’s Day I wanted to share what motherhood means to me. It has been the biggest joy and challenge of my life. I can appreciate each phase and season but I have to say I love watching them grow into amazing young men with pretty cool personalities. I love just spending time with them going to watch their sporting events or just hanging out watching tv. We celebrate Mother’s Day each year with a nice meal and relaxing time at home or maybe an adventure to an antique shop.
I am blessed that my mother lives with us so she joins in on the fun of going out to a nice meal and then we give her a beautiful bouquet of flowers. My boys always used to make homemade cards too and still do occasionally to hand out to us. Those are the best gifts in my opinion.
If I have any advice for mother’s it would be to truly live in each moment…all of them the good, the bad, and the ugly. It might not feel like it while you are in the season but it does pass so fast. As I am gearing up to let one of mine fly the nest I swear I blinked and he became a man. Have no regrets of saying no to something so you can say yes to time with them. Take advantage of the car line pick ups and drop offs and trips to practice as time to listen and chat about anything they have to say because one day you won’t get to do that anymore. Just be available to lend an ear always.
It has been so fun sharing a little bit of me with you and I wish all of you amazing Mothers a happy Mother’s Day!
