Baby Thighs

{Olivia's romper is by NUNUNU - a huge favorite of ours!)

As I go crazy trying to plan Liv's first birthday party (this Saturday!! - although her actual birthday is not until the following weekend)
 I got to thinking about baby thighs ........
Soon she won't have those baby thighs anymore.... or those baby cheeks. This makes me ugly cry. Like who ever thought chunky little thighs would make you cry?! 
But, seriously... look at those rolls.

I love getting to see her learn new things every day, but I am so heart broken that she is growing up so fast. That month by month, she loses another roll. Those rolls are my little munchkin's and they should never go away!
And those cheeks. If only I could continue to chomp on them. But by age 10, I think she will most likely want to take a swing at me if I do. 
The hardest part about all of this is watching her grow up so fast and loving every second but missing the previous moments at the same time. The exact definition of bitter sweet. 

Looking back at this year - we have been through so much. We have grown together as a family - leaps and bounds. She has brought me closer to my husband and we have experienced more love than I ever could have imagined. 

I will finally be sharing our birth story on her birthday (a week and a half from today). Until then, I will be chomping on those thighs!

Beautiful location in Barkhamstead, CT

Being a hard working entrepreneur myself, I wanted to introduce you to a very hard working gal named Michelle and she created her line...
The Love, Mich Collection from the bottom up.
I have so much admiration for women like her. Chasing her dreams and staying up late nights finishing up orders so that she can get up in just a few hours for her "real" job. Chasing a dream to hopefully make it a full time career -- one that she truly enjoys doing every single day. She hand makes everything in her shop and I would just love if you could show her some love today. She has such an eye for design and is working on some exciting upcoming projects!

As I said above, everything is handmade by Michelle. The quality is A+++ in my opinion. Holds up well. I toted around this coffee all day long and then my daughter played with the cozy for the remainder of the day and it's still in one piece. If it passes the kid test, you know it's great quality ;)

{Overall Impression}
I love that she has several options to choose from in each wristlet, handbag and cozy she makes. I also just love supporting small businesses and the fact that she stayed up late on a monday evening to finish your handbag, is just pretty darn cool.

You can enter to win the wristlet shown above by simply entering below :)
Happy Tuesday!

Reworking your closet for fall

Having children means that you have little money left over for your shopping sprees and thus I find myself reworking my closet a lot more each season. Both of these pieces are a few years old but I still think they have some life in them, and I am still digging the embellished sweatshirts. 

I have to admit that I was one of those people that only wore a piece once or twice and then sold it or just didn't wear it again. I really want to work on that in the future and only buy pieces that are investments. Pieces that I will continue to wear again and again - season after season. 

What are some of your favorite go-to pieces year after year?
