How amazing is this outfit? Love the new shirt and shorts from Mason Ryder Collective. And the new artist collection from George Hats has to be the best yet.
Some days I feel like I bite off more than I can chew. On those days I remember that no matter what happens with my business or my projects, this is what matters, and this is always a good investment. Channeling our zoo day to power through.
Kids who are regularly barefoot have significantly better-developed motor skills than those who regularly wear shoes, according to a brand new study published by two universities in Germany and South Africa. Read the full blog at the link in our Bio. ☝🏼
If shoes have a debiliating effect on kids’ developing motor skills – why are they spending so long in stiff, narrow and rigid school shoes?
VivoKids make our school shoes like all our shoes: thin, wide and bendy – as close to barefoot as possible. ♥️ TAG TWO FELLOW PARENTS on this post and make sure to give us a follow for a chance to win a pair of VivoKids in July 2018 and make sure to give us a follow. Let’s spread the word about foot-movement connection! ✨
🔺Triangle Sponge Painting🔻Nothing like a little outdoor painting!☀️ in the beginning all he wanted to do was play with the sponges. 🤷♀️They were walking, jumping and running all over the table. Then we added the paint and the triangles were swirling and mixing around the paint. 🎨 Finally they found the paper. This activity was more about the process of creating the art rather than the piece that was created. Diggy got to interact with triangles 🔺by holding them, dipping their sides in paper and explore the marks that they created.👍🏻
I wanted to take a portrait of Ahden, to capture him at Age One.
I had a Romanesque wave of inspiration. I made him a Tiny Toga and a little Ivy crown and managed to create a photograph that will fill me with love and joy and adoration every time I look at it for as many years as I am here on this earth.
This sweet baby boy, I just love him so much.
Exploring our little beach town- so many hidden gems!
I’m putting together several travel guides right now. I’m wondering, what are some of the top things you look for in a travel guide when you’re planning to visit a city?

Lost in the moment whilst having her snack.
Who wouldn't be when you have the clear blue sea to watch all the fish in.

started reading #raisingyourspiritedchild by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka over the weekend & am floored by the accuracy to our little miss.
the book describes children that are “more” (more intense, more sensitive, more perceptive, more persistent, more energetic etc) and provides some great tools for nurturing these often mislabeled characteristics. highly recommend to anyone that is feeling like their kid displays any or ALL of these, such a great read.
Looking back at photos from newborn until now, and it’s amazing how much this babe has changed over the past two years. T W O Y E A R S. Every milestone, every moment of frustration and sweetness, is a reminder to savor the time I have with her. She’ll never be this young again! (😭)
“...the happiest, most successful children have parents who do not do for them what they are capable of doing, or almost capable of doing; and their parents do not do things for them that satisfy their own needs rather than the needs of the child.” Excerpt from one of my favorite articles in The NY Times called “Raising Succesful Children” written by Madeline Levine in 2012 👏🏻 and another reminder that each stage of development should happen whenever each child is ready, it may take longer sometimes. It’s also what I’m reminding myself of considering Tess may be army crawling but she’s on her own self implemented diet of only 1 spoonful of solids per meal 🤦🏻♀️🤣 #wordsonwednesday#letthemlive#intheirowntime#letthemplay
If you didn’t see yesterday’s stories, I announced that my “Quaint & Kind” tee shirt design will open for pre-orders on Friday! I’ll take orders through the weekend! There will be a ton of sizes available from onesies to toddler and kid size tee shirts!
I’m excited to share these with you and to help remind ourselves and our littles to be kind ☺️🌻
