Summer Time

Hey Everyone!  June is just flying by… CRAZY!  This summer we’ve been really taking advantage of all the fun, free family events going on.  Being a mom to a toddler is so fun!  Ivy’s loving all the fun adventures we go on, whether it’s music in the park or going to the beach.  I swear, I got so lucky that she chose me to be her mommy!  Such a sweet and funny little girl.  And I love our funny “inside jokes” that only a mom and her child could understand… gahhh… besties for life!

Hope everyone’s been having an amazing summer!

First Birthday Time Capsule

Hey Everyone!  I’ve decided to write a new post on the time capsule we did for Ivy’s first birthday party.  I love this idea so much and it has been my top reposted pin on Pinterest, so I figured it needed it’s own blog post!  The idea is really simple, and you can add any variation that you’d like!  I’m just so excited that she will have this someday (17 years from now)!

For Ivy’s first birthday time capsule we cut out different colored sheets of paper, collected random stickers, and had crayons, pens, and colored pencils available.  Some of Ivy’s cousins drew pictures, aunts and grandmas wrote heart-felt pages… at least that’s what they told me! Haha… part of the fun of this time capsule is that we decided not to read or look at any of them!  After everyone was done they put it in the large envelope and we never peeked inside.  The envelope is now sealed and in our safe until Ivy turns 18 (the year 2034!).

It’s not too late to make one for your child!  It was special being able to do this on Ivy’s first birthday, but if you have older children I would still encourage you to do this!  It will be so special for them to open one day!  Older children can also write a letter to themselves, or draw a picture to add!

You could do this at a baby shower too:

Small Individual Jars

There are so many fun and unique ideas that you can create for a first birthday time capsule!  After you’re done make sure you store it somewhere safe so that it won’t get ruined, and also somewhere no little fingers will be tempted to open it!

Farm Wedding + Our Garden

Farm wedding

It’s officially wedding season!  We actually only have two weddings this summer (& already had one surprise wedding earlier this year in January for my sister!).  Last year we had SIX WEDDINGS to attend!  Craziness!  I love wedding so much.  They always make me nostalgic of my own wedding.  And I ALWAYS tear up when I see the bride coming down the aisle.  I’m such a softy!

Shop Amazon – Create an Amazon Wedding Registry

Here are a few pics from the farm wedding we attended this past weekend + some pics from our backyard garden.  Lettuce and radishes are going to be harvested any day now!  Also, I just read in my town paper that they are considering allowing backyard chickens!  Ahhhh…. dream come true!  I hope it passes!
