ONE little MOMMA is our life behind ONE little BELT. This blog will be a place to find shop/business updates, momma style and glimpses of other happenings in our life. I love running a business and working to help it grow, but I also have so many other hobbies that I love. Here you will be able to see other projects that we are working on, my fashion finds and outfits, tips, tutorials and any other items I think you'll enjoy. Grab a button so you can find us later!
More about us in case you were wondering...
I grew up in Kansas City, went to college in Utah where I met my future husband Soren (great story for another day), got married and then graduated with degree in Nutritional Science. We found out soon after I graduated that we were pregnant with our first little guy (Easton) and that scrapped my plans of a Master's degree in Dietetics AND turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to us!
We lived in Seattle for 2.5 years after college and it wasn't ever the right fit for us. We wanted to love it, but the darkness and being away from all family and friends was really hard on me. The bright part was that we became parents twice in that time. Our boys are 17 months apart and are our favorite things in the world. After Kesler (Baby #2) was born, we started seriously looking at moving closer to family. By divine intervention we found a great job, a perfect house and moved 10 minutes away from my family before Kesler turned 2 months. We have lived in Liberty, Missouri since Jan '11 and it has been wonderful for us.
While in Seattle and after becoming new parents, the idea for our business ONE little BELT came about. In 2009 as my husband and I were dressing our 6-week old son, Easton, for a party. Being a fashion-conscious mom, I already had a tiny pair of blue jeans for him, but after dressing him, we noticed that something was missing. My husband quickly fashioned a tiny belt out of one of my old leather belts, and the problem was solved. His empty belt loops were filled and his outfit was surprisingly perfect.

More things that make me ME...
I am extremely observant and have an eye for just the right look.
I can read at lightening speed.
I'm only a perfectionist when it comes to color.
I have always been naturally gifted at spotting trends- like spookily.
I have a hard time showing a lot of strong emotion, but I'm actually pretty feisty and opinionated.
I never close anything all the way, especially lids; I have ruined binders, backpacks and purses my whole life with a leaky beverage lid.

I am easily embarrassed and am typically terrified to answer the phone.
I am a NOT a swimmer. Never learned; the water gets up my nose every time.

My greatest joy comes from seeing my kids laugh together.
I love anything fuzzy and soft.
My favorite scents are coconut or honeydew melon.
