Thumbnail image for 6 baby must-haves for summer time

Summer is such a wonderful time, but when you have a baby it can sometimes feel so much more complicated! Dragging things around, remembering everything you need or might need! The obvious esssentials were what always ran through my head first. Things like pacifiers, snacks, diapers, wipes and changing gear, and sunscreen. (I always forget the […]

Even though I consider myself a fairly modern gal, with a love for clean lines and bright colors and new, innovative design ideas, there is something so beautiful about a classic teddy bear.

Birdie spent yesterday sick with a stomach bug. By early afternoon, she was also sick of the sofa, the side chair, all of her pillows and the floor. She just couldn’t get comfortable. I couldn’t help but wish we had a beanbag to comfort and mold around her little body! Especially if it was one […]

Dappled sunlight, fluttering butterflies, wind in the branches, birds tweeting, and a little itty bitty fox sitting primly on a log, crown in hand, just waiting for you.
