This post is facilitated by a partnership with Dasani. My oldest daughter is almost 28 and as her birthday approaches, I have been thinking about myself at that age. I was newly married and had a promising career ahead of me. My new husband and I traveled, ate at many amazing restaurants and did whatever we pleased. We thought we had the world by the tail and nothing could top what we already had. And then we found out we were expecting a baby. Like many first time parents to be, we were absolutely terrified and a bit sad. We were grieving the lifestyle we had grown accustomed to and thought having a baby would just ruin it. Little did we know that precious baby girl would change our lives for the better. From the moment we held our newborn daughter, we could have cared less if we never traveled, ate out or did anything else we had loved so much ever again. There is nothing that makes me sparkle and puts a smile on my face than my kids. I gave up a career and a lifestyle I thought I would miss but I actually did not. I jumped headfirst into motherhood and have loved virtually every moment of it ever since.
So what makes you sparkle? Dasani Water, one of my favorite bottled waters, has recently launched a new product called Dasani Sparkling, which is a sparkling water.
To celebrate, they would love to know what makes you sparkle! Is it your kids, a favorite hobby or perhaps it is your career? Dasani would love to know and they have an amazing contest that you can enter!
