If you've seen our past interviews and Ruchette of the Month entries, you'll know that we truly adore Justina Blakeney, a multi-talented designer, stylist, and blogger. This imaginative gal is not only a model of creative inspiration, but a prime example of a woman who balances her work life with the daily task of being a mother. In honor of Mother's Day, we asked some of our favorite bloggers to share a few words on motherhood, and Justina has enlightened us with some wonderful advice she received from her mother. May these wise words inspire you to live beautifully today!

Some advice that my mother gave to me is, "It's never too late in the day to start your day over again." It's a great lesson because often times something will throw your day off: a parking ticket, or an argument with a friend.  But the key is to not to let it put a dark cloud over your whole day, right? This is certainly a lesson that I hope to pass on to my wonderful daughter!
