Autism Acceptance/Awareness Starts With Me

The other day I looked at my To Do list and thought to myself, "look at my world's blending so nicely."  A little sewing, a little fashion, a little autism, a little working on my shop. I like this list.

In the past, I felt like I used to compartmentalize my life. Especially with this blog where, for a while, I decided I will only talk about my sewing/fashion endeavors. Now, not so much. I enjoy giving people a glimpse into my life as a mother of a special needs kids who also runs a blog, an online shop, who likes fashion, etc. Sometimes my worlds collide and sometimes they blend nicely. This is Autism Acceptance and Awareness. As I accept my life and what it has become (the good and the bad),  I can make others aware.


  1. I so agree! We can't define ourselves just one way -- for a long time, when my son was younger and needed more help, Autism seemed to be the only thing on my I try to mix it all up -- I guess that is MY autism acceptance!

  2. I love this post! I know this is a simple thing to notice, but to me the small realizations have the most impact.
    I am still trying to blend all the faucets of my life nicely. Someday.

  3. Sharing is caring :) Thanks for sharing your life.
    Even when we have blogs on a specific focus, it's a good thing to show a little of our "human" side from time to time. Keeps us grounded and makes us real.

  4. Love this post as well!!! It is always a blessing when different aspects of our lives blend together as opposed to crashing into each other. Thanks for sharing this.

  5. Thank you so much for the support ladies. Yes, I find that having two children on the spectrum has made me more authentic. Go figure!
