True Toddler Fashion: “TTF Part II”

There are a couple of posts I want to make sure I write for, or about, both of my kiddos. This is one of those and it falls on the lighter side of things. Brace yourself for a repeat venture of a project I shared with you all back in 2015. (Yeah…2015…my dear goodness! TWO years ago?!

Russian Sage Bundle for Rustic Fall or Winter Decorating

Each autumn we trim our Russian Sage, or Perovskia Atriplicifolia, nearly to the ground. We do this to keep our plants healthy and thriving. Let me tell you, it works like a charm and these beauties bloom a gorgeous purple all through the following summer. Their aroma reminds me of hearty sage and they are loved by bumble bees. On hot afternoons our fence sounds like a buzzing electric line because of the busy pollinators working from one tiny flower to the next. Continue reading

Cold Weather Easter Dress Ideas for Girls of Different Ages

The chances of celebrating a “White Easter Sunday” are pretty strong where I live. Growing up, I hunted for Easter eggs in the snow after church! It’s likely that my children will celebrate Easter this way, as well. Because of this, I often struggle to find weather appropriate outfits for the spring time that are suitable for my kiddos.

Watch Me Grow: Month by Month Baby Picture Idea

Friends, my Baby B turned 6 months old over the weekend. We all already know how quickly babyhood time slips by, even though there are moments that can feel eternally long as a parent.

Toddler Swim & Sun Outfits

I am a four seasons girl! There are many things I love and appreciate about each one and if I lived somewhere warm year around, I’d miss the qualities each has to offer. The fall brings beautiful reds, yellows and oranges as the Aspen trees change colors and the chill in the air makes me want to throw on a sweatshirt with my flip flops. Heading into winter I’m always excited for ski season and adore cuddle time with my family. For a brief period during the spring, the beautiful rolling green hills make me feel like I live in Ireland. For me, summer is always about water. It’s about lake days, pool time, sprinklers, slip-n-slides, water tables, and squirt guns.

Must-Have Toddler Boy Clothes

Man, do I have warm weather on the brain! I have been dreaming of vacations, days by the water, shorts, grilling with friends, excessive amounts of playground time, and just about everything else I associate with spring and summer. Sadly, I really have no excuse. We had a pretty mild winter in Wyoming (until last week) with some warm days to give us breaks from the snow. But, regardless of what type of winter we have, it seems like I’m always ready for a change of season this time of year. So, I put a couple toddler boy outfit ideas together Continue reading
