It has been a whiles guys!

First things first, I wanted to highlight why I chose this beautiful day to relaunch RIO by Olivia Irene. A year ago, my life changed for the better. On March 24, 2016 at 11:45 PM I took on a new lifelong title as mom to the most amazing baby boy, Elliott Ethyn.  While welcoming new life into my life, I experienced beautiful moments but also encountered painful times.

During these times, I thought about scrapping my blog frequently because I was no long inspired but….I stopped myself. Thank God. I realized that moment of feeling uninspired was just that, a moment. I learned to persevere through adversity regardless of how I felt in that moment. Although 2016 was one hell of a ride (which I will share within the next couple of weeks) it not only molded me, but it showed me what I was made of. So cheers to new beginnings, life and most importantly Elliott’s very first birthday! Without him, I would have never grown so much as a human being. He has opened up a new set of eyes and has helped me view life in such a wonderful way. I plan to hold him tight for as long as he will let me and cannot wait to celebrate many more birthdays with him.
