The Conscious Family Organizer + Giveaway 

September is fast approaching and mamas know what that means: BACK-TO-SCHOOL. Each year, I tell myself that I will be that mom who is organized, plans ahead and never misses a beat. But instead, I feel like the hot mess mama, who just knocked over a 8,592 piece Lego creation and I need to put it back together before the 3 year old wakes up from her nap. 🤣 This year, I have teamed up with The Conscious Family Organizer to give away one of their beautiful organizers!
