The sun is coming up as I am writing this, which is not normal hours for me but the last few days I have been sleeping so sound it’s been making me rise earlier. I am watching  the sun peak through the trees in my front yard and turn the horizon that certain color that can only mean fall is near.

Over the last 3 months of this amazing summer I took a time-out from technology to stick my feet in the ground and think about what really makes me happy. Here is what I found; being on the beach listening to my kids laugh does, listening to my body makes me happy, and so does being connected to the people I love. Living in the moment instead of worrying about what needs to be done tomorrow, is delightful.  This very moment is too precious to not give my undivided attention to.

When you take a break from something, you gain perspective and although what I learned isn’t ground breaking, I found that doing what makes you truly shine is always the best choice. Making the most of every minute is actually as rewarding as everyone says it is. So I am going to keep practicing being present, but don’t worry I will pop in every once and a while to see what you all are up to 😉

See what I am loving right now-as always just click on the big image to shop or the smaller images below!

I also have been working on my book (read more about my portfolio here)! As always I would love to hear what is making you happy…comment below or join me on Instagram.

I am all types of giddy that my new favorite shop, Calisson Little Royals just sent over these gorgeous goodies for baby Wren! Everything is hand made in France so you know when I found out about them-I clocked some seriously online time over on their stunning site. It turns out a shop local to me carries their pieces which is super convenient.

The sweater Wren is wearing is soft and perfect for New England summer nights and fall days. For sizing, Wren is on the smaller side so she is wearing 3-6 months which fit her perfectly (she is 7 months as of July 6th). The shoes are the only shoes that actually fit wrens tiny feet so far, and had room to spare. If your baby is average size and in the 3-6 month range, then the shoes fit true to size.

I am such sucker for old fashioned bloomers! These are light weight and airy, amazing for the hotter months, but in the fall I am going to put tights on underneath and they will keep her warm on crisp days. The sweater also has an adjustable tie string so it should fit into the winter. Please check out Calisson’s site for more about this brand and where you can shop this look. Also, thank you so much for supporting brands that I love and am inspired by!

La Petite Peach_10 things I am loving this May

I wish I could say it was sunny and warm here in New England, but so far this May is still pretty chilly. I’ve officially started to get out more with the girls while Luke is at school even if it’s windy and bitter. As long as the sun is shining through the clouds every now and then, we can get through a short walk to the beach and back without freezing our buns off. The spring is such a short season here but the flowers are starting to bloom (just a little) and I am getting excited for another summer on Cape Cod. Above is a running list of things I am just loving right now. I think you will like them too! I hope you have a fabulous week and just in case you missed April’s top 10, check it out here.
