-Meredith Gray-
from ‘The Beauty of Motherhood’:

I’d rather be a mother than anyone on earth

Bringing up a child or two of unpretentious birth

I’d rather tuck a little child all safe and sound in bed

Than twine a chain of diamonds about my {carefree} head.

I’d rather wash a smudgy face with round, bright, baby eyes

Than paint the pageantry of fame or walk among the wise.

Hello there! I'm Allison Czarnecki, founder + editor of Petit Elefant, a blog all about style on a budget for every part of your life: style / home / travel / family. I do a lot of how-to beauty + style tutorials, travel posts, easy recipes, home remodel projects, and cool DIY crafts you totally want to try. I'm super happily married (to a hot Polish immigrant) and am the mother of two kids, a daughter and son, all of whom are featured here on the regular. We live in the country but we're a little bit rock + roll. Welcome!
