Anyone else in complete awe that we’re well into the holidays and just a couple weeks away from 2018? I say it at the close of every year but really, where did 2017 go? So much happened over the last 12 months — some good, some bad, some happy, some sad… And though it’s bittersweet to say goodbye to 2017 and hello to 2018, I’m ready.
It’s been a while since I’ve sat down to write a post — and frankly, I don’t even know where to begin. Life has a way of shaking you up sometimes, and well, the last few months have certainly done that.
Happy Friday eve, friends! Hope you all had a lovely Fourth of July. We got together with friends, ate lots of BBQ, drank sparkling spiked lemonade, cooled off with patriotic popsicles and the kids splashed around in the sprinklers. No fireworks for this family… we were all in bed by dark. It was the best day! The only downside to a mid-week holiday is that it makes the rest of the week drag on f-o-r-e-v-e-r… But to combat the weekday blues, it’s giveaway time!
It’s the common scene for any parent toting around a child: you’re carrying an obscene amount of “stuff” either in your pockets or your purse or diaper bag or trying to juggle it all while holding your child on your hip. From diapers and wipes to toys and snacks and sunscreen and water, plus your wallet, keys, phone and of course, coffee, it seems that our hands are never free. I’ve migrated away from my giant diaper bag days and use this Madewell tote to carry most of our daily “stuff.” But when I’m pushing the stroller, I want to be “stuff” free and I’ve now found the ultimate solution for that.
