family fun

I am swooning over design mom's family photos taken by Candice Stringham
These little children look like they came straight out of a J. Crew photo shoot. 
I especially love the cup cakes.

lots and lots

My cousin Amelia emailed me with some requests for some fresh spring cardigans. I guess it is that time of year, jackets can be a bit too much but you still need something to cover those arms when a big gust of wind pipes up. 
I happen to be a huge fan of cardigans, a fact evidenced by the rainbow of them hanging in my closet. I think  the thing I love best about a little sweater is how it can elevate a t-shirt and jeans to an actual outfit and make look just a little bit more pulled together. 

In no particular order, here are my favorites of the season. I searched all over, but I always come back to the basics.

Lonely Me

My beautiful wife and wonderful baby left me all alone in SLC while they flew off to Hawaii, Lonely Me.

This was Winston's first trip to the beach. when he was only a week old he got to go to the Hampton's, don't he and Cait look great for only 1 week.
I am sure they are having a blast but I can't wait to see them when they get home.

One of the things that I have loved most about having a child of my own is being able to relive my childhood. Dan and I are fortunate because our parents saved a lot of our old toys and clothes from when we were children and at every stage of the game so far we've been able to share little things with Winston. He has inheirited every thing from blankets, to clothes, to books, and some very special toys including a beautiful old wooden Janesville wagon. I think we need to take some pictures of him with the wagon as soon as the sunny weather decides to stick around.

I'm generally not a video blogger. I guess I'm just usually not patient enough to wait for them to load but I couldn't hold back sharing this laughter. This was taken a couple of weeks ago and I think Dan or myself has watched it at least once almost every day since. This little man seems to be full of happiness and curiosity. He lives life on fast forward all the time. He's almost walking and is climbing stairs and I just wish I could keep him this age forever, before he's big enough to run away from me!

swim season

I just wanted to clue you all in on the darling swimsuits at Down East Basics this year. These are some of the cutest (and most flattering) suits I have seen in a while, and at pretty good prices. I'm a lucky girl and Winston and I are heading to Hawaii with my family this week so I snagged the white tankini above for the trip. I just can't wait to be tan and lying on the beach!
