Jewelry can be a metaphor for life. I love having pieces that blend together, that make me feel pretty, and that are appropriate for my lifestyle. As a mom to a 17-month-old daughter, I often feel like I have to cut corners to get everything done in the day. When I have my go-to Bronwen Jewelry on, there is a part of me that feels like I am keeping it together and that I am putting my best self forward, even when the rest of my day is falling apart.

As an older mom and a long-time professional athlete, it has been a steep learning curve to readjust priorities and make sure I always put my family first. After years of freedom and chasing personal goals, I have learned a lot of humility and balance in these last two years. And, I still have a long way to go. It became important to step back from my old life and reevaluate a new path.

My pregnancy went smoothly, but once our girl, Charlie, arrived, I realized how little I knew about raising a child in the world in which I had been living.  The pieces of my life are now starting to shift, and, with this change in perspective, I am finding a new peace and happiness in adjusted goals and in time spent showing my child the places and the activities that I love. It has been more rewarding than any other personal pursuit in which I have engaged.

When we find ways to make our pieces work, it creates a sense of harmony and contentment in our daily lives. Wherever I can find options to create more simplicity and order out of the chaos, I cherish it. These days, between work, baby, partner, ranch chores, and life stuff, I look for simple but quality solutions wherever I can find them – in clothing, in gear, in schedules, in jewelry. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with companies that embrace and support mothers, the outdoors, and our equality and strengths as women.

So, when I get up in the morning on my daughter’s early schedule, I love selecting a few beautiful, comfortable, and reliable pieces to get my day started in the right way. I can head into the mountains and feel good about myself, my task at hand, and my family at home when I can make the right choices each day to keep on track. Making the pieces work whenever and wherever you can is success in and of itself.
