Tiny Visitor

Look who popped by the store the other day! Hendrix and his Mama (of Just By Living) and his Papa (of The Hipster Dad). Hendrix was quite smitten by this little pig from I Golfini Della Nonna which kept him entertained while his parents and I got to chit chat. Can’t say it’s a bad day at work when friends are hanging in the shop. We get lots of visits from Sierra and Lauren of Before I Was a Mom, as well. I’ve also had the honor of meeting Jen of Jen Loves Kev and Drea and Marlowe of Oh Dear Drea while they stopped by Monkey & The Bug. I love how this blog community introduces you to so many awesome families.

I’m in Wisconsin right now visiting my family. I’m excited for the chance to relax, celebrate, and maybe even blog a little while away from our hectic, day to day schedule. What are you all doing for the Holidays?



Behind The Scenes

I wanted to share a few behind the scenes pictures from our look book shoot. I can’t wait to debut the beautiful photos taken by Sonya Shermer. I was really nervous about shooting with so many toddlers but it actually worked out just fine. We did two looks for each kids and the first went swimmingly. The second was okay, we provided lots of toys and did our best to wrangle them. By the end all the kids were starting to get antsy so the timing was perfect. We had to do a few last minute outfit changes since some were a bit more opinionated about their ensembles then others. But all in al it was a great day and I am so happy with the results! A big thanks to everyone involved! I couldn’t have done it without you!
