A Little Summer Magic...

After sneaking in a little skip hop around the blogosphere this morning you be hard pressed to convince me that summer isn't the most magical time of the year...people are berry picking, firefly catching, continent hopping, pool lazing, and star gazing...I sense a general mellowness settling in*...(something that never happens during the much lauded holidaze)...Hurrah for Summer!! This week we were able to pick strawberries from our little patch (all that was tended in this year's unambitious garden) and it has quickly become my favorite part of the day...Lila runs out to see which ones are ripe and because the plants are interspersed with mint comes running back with covered in a yummy chewing gum smell... 

We've also discovered the joys of uncooking (mostly because my few forays into the kitchen with two littles have resulted in  minor panic attacks) and since the grey and rain have kept the farmer's markets mostly vegetable free affairs I've been forced to indulge my carb/sweet tooth...

So here's to a lazy, magical summer weekend...lots of ice cream, strawberries, and movies under the stars...

PS - We decided on a whim to have a flash sale today at the shop! One day only - 30% off any orders over $150 (not applicable to prior purchases - sorry!) Head on over! Be the first to know about our next sale by subscribing to the store newsletter...

PPS - I officially have the coolest readers - everyone was super nice about the breastfeeding post which helped me breathe a sigh of relief about posting on a somewhat controversial topic - yes, everyone needs to do what works for them and just be happy moms! nuf said...

PPPS - *except for those mini meltdowns that seem to happen around our house from about 5 - 7...(officially known around these parts as "is it almost bedtime? can you two stop crying/whining now?, and mama needs a drink")


  1. Everything sounds so lovely! And the photos are so beautiful too! The sale is seriously tempting, but I'm trying to be responsible so all those clare vivier bags are going to have to wait a little longer to find their way into my closet.

    Here's to you magical lazy summer weekend!

  2. I'm a newbie here what a lovely blog you have!

  3. Yes- summer mellowness has surely settled in... collectively and individually.

    And I love it =).

    (that farmer's market trip still has me dreaming of pastries, baguettes, & bacon!!)

  4. Summer magic is a wonderful thing! Your little one is adorable.

  5. I love the pictures of the strawberry cutie!


I'm hanging on your every word...let me know what you think!
