Proud To Be An Autism Mom

    I don't know about you, but I'm proud to be an autism mom. Sure, it has it's difficult moments, but I'm a part of something bigger, you know? When I go out, I love to show that pride, for a few different reasons.

Proud To Be An Autism Mom

    Being an autism mom is difficult, as well as rewarding. When you're able to connect with your tribe, it helps the bad days not seem so terrible. Sharing the good and the bad with other women who get it, and don't judge, is something that I wouldn't trade for the world, which is why I'm proud to be an autism mom.

Show That Pride

    When I go out, I often show that pride. Either I wear an autism related tee shirt, or some jewelry. I do this for a few reasons. One is because I like to connect with other parents that live a spectrum life. However, I'm socially awkward. I have had people strike a conversation with me because they recognized my autism merch. It makes speaking with strangers easier.

     Another reason is that now that autism is on the forefront, many people recognize the colors associated with the ribbon, as well as the puzzle pieces themselves. In the event that my son is having a rough time coping in this giant and loud world, someone may see my autism garb and "get it."

Check This Out

     If you're like me, and love to show your pride in your tribe, then you have to check out Hidden Hollow Beads. I stumbled upon them while I was shopping on Amazon with Liam. I immediately fell in love with the gorgeous pieces they have to offer!

    I've been rocking their Autism Awareness Bracelet since I got it. It's stretchy and so comfy to wear. But even better yet, it's absolutely gorgeous! Whether you're dressing up, or rocking your autism mom tee and yoga pants, it compliments any outfit perfectly!

Don't Lose It!

     Hidden Hollow Beads has the most beautiful lanyard I've even laid eyes upon! Their Autism Awareness Lanyard is so pretty! Whether you're wearing it to hold your work badge, keep track of your glasses, or have it on your key chain, you'll be keeping track of your important items in style!

     I've been wearing mine to hold my glasses. I'm finally at the age where I think I've lost them, and they're on my forehead. Thanks to my Autism Awareness Lanyard, they're where I can see them, and grab them when I need them. Oh, and before I forget, it's super sturdy too! So if you have a lot of keys, it's going to hold up to them!

     These are just a couple of the autism awareness pieces that Hidden Hollow Beads carries. They also have other awareness jewelry as well. In their Amazon Marketplace you will find various Cancer awareness pieces, bangles, other lanyards and so much more. They're made right here in the United States, and are all simply elegant!
