I never thought I would be a crop top kind of gal, but here we are!  I’ve had this top in my drawer for a really long time before I braved it, and then I put it with this skirt and loved it, so I’ve worn it a bunch of times since then.

Life has been a little fast paced and exciting lately!  I’ve participated in a couple of Farmer’s Markets this summer, and woah! That was a LOT of work haha.  I don’t sell food, so I don’t think I did as well as the people who did sell food, but it was a good experience.  I’ve learned that I don’t want to do farmer’s markets anymore.  Both times I was in direct sunlight all day and came home with a sunburn and mild heat stroke.  Oops! Oh well, live and learn 😉

Otherwise, I’ve been so busy dreaming up ideas for new projects and new things to offer in May Market! Our next sale is coming up on September 1 and 2, and I’m SO excited to share the things we’ll have in it!  It’s all about fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and everything pumpkins!  I am so in love with everything so far.

What’s new in your life?

Dress: thrifted // necklace: Finity Handmade on etsy

It’s funny. Slightly more than a year ago, when I had only one child, I would take my outfit pictures when she was napping. Now I have two, and so I barely take outfit pictures ever… but when I get a moment to do so, I have an adorable little one crashing the photos!  I love it.  She wanted to pose the same way I was, it was a lot of fun, and she is an adorable addition to my photos.

I want to talk about this dress for a moment.  I love how classic 90’s it is.  And I especially love the buttons up the back.  Except… they come undone SO easy.  How embarrassing is it when you have just walked across the room and sat down, only to receive a text from your husband that your dress isn’t done up?  Pretty embarrassing!!  But I love the dress so how to prevent wardrobe malfunctions?  Shorts underneath!  I have a lot of bike shorts and they’re perfect for something like this because you can’t tell I’m wearing them, and no one will see my underwear… even if the buttons aren’t holding up.

Autumn picked her own outfit today, too!  She really wanted to wear a dress and was so excited when she saw this one. And it’s so cute, I couldn’t say no!  Plus, you can’t go wrong with matching necklaces, right? 😉

Hope your week is amazing <3

Autumn at 2.5 <3

Earlier this month, my little girl turned 2 and a half!! Aka 30 months old haha.  I’m not one to keep track of months specifically, but it would have been hard to add a little point to 2.5 years haha 😉

Autumn has been growing so much over the last half a year.  She has a LOT to say.  She knows so many words, and says them so sweetly.  Some of them she has the cutest pronunciations.  She still loves reading so much, and always wants to hear stories.

This month she watched her new favourite movie, Moana!  She’s also started potty training (which I will probably write about in more detail soon).

She’s learning so much and I love watching her grow <3
