It always amazes me when I meet moms who are not only raising kids, but are also starting their own businesses. Especially when they’re moms who see a need that’s not being met and decide to solve the problem. I’ve introduced the moms behind sugarSNAP and Fourth Love, and today I introduce Pazit of LulyBoo. I hope you find her as inspiring — and inspired — as I do.

Family quotes. They encourage us, inspire and shine a light on areas of our lives that we may be too busy to see on a regular basis.
The days zoom by so fast you may feel as though you are front and center on your very own racetrack. It’s easy to forget about the good things, the important things. I’m the first to admit that there are many times that I get so caught up with work, errands and chores that I don’t have time to live in the moment with my own family. I look at the day after it’s ended, when those little ones are asleep in their bed.
Quotes are nuggets of wisdom that tend to put us back on track. They refresh, rejuvenate and prepare us for a new day with a brand new outlook in place. Family IS the most important thing. Click through for 10 reasons why from some of the most intelligent and inspiring individuals of our time.

My husband and I had a terrible time coming up with names for our children. We didn’t want any family names, but needed names that worked well in both English and Spanish and were easy to pronounce for the non-Spanish speaking side of the family.
We wanted something fresh yet classic. Our son’s name, Matías was inspired by a German ski jumper when my husband was watching winter sports on ESPN. It worked in Spanish (that’s the version we use) and wasn’t too common. Our daughter’s name, Lucía (that’s Little L) was much more difficult to agree on, but I wanted a strong, traditional and not overly used Spanish name. I felt so much pressure to choose the right one, after all this is for life!
The point is that every parent draws inspiration from somewhere — a family name, a favorite sports star, a name they once read in a book or a favorite television show character. I always say, when you know you know. So if you are looking for some inspiration, here are 40 names that have made comebacks or gained in popularity thanks to recent television shows and characters.
