Anyone else super excited for back-to-school? 😍 πŸ™‹πŸ» @svenclogs @jetpens @luliewallace #totallyjumpingthegun #imasuckerforschoolsupplies

avestyles : These are adorable
carissamiss : Totally πŸ™Œ
kristintree : Nope. Evie and I are at odds on her wardrobe these days. It gives me palpatations just thinking of going shopping with her. #glitterandsparklesandelsaohmy
livefreemiranda : Those clogs!😍😍
milonguera : @kristintree, Let her wear what she likes as long as it's not appropriate--too revealing. Then make sure you have lots of pictures for when she's 25 and you can say, "But it's what you wanted to wear!"
niciaesplin : You wouldn't be jumping the gun here! School starts August 4th!!!
snackaroni : Nope
kellyhandmadedesigns : Love the shoes!!! So cute!!

Felix's favorite phrase to say. He says it so fast that it sounds like one word. "Doit! Doit!" As he walks down the stairs by himself. Or "Doit! Doit!" as he points to me when I ask him to put something away. I'm treasuring these milestones of his. #felimonster Using Pentel ColorBrush Pen from @jetpens

I LOVE name meanings so much. Aubrey means "fair ruler of the little people". Serious. I checked it in multiple places. I think I need an Aubrey to rule my crazy little people. #calligraphynameoftheday Left-leaning slant inspired by @skylerchubak @crossroads_calligraphy and W. E. Dennis.

Name of the day: Charlotte. It's the feminine of "free man", so I'm taking it a step further to "free spirit". Fitting for all the Charlottes I can think of. #calligraphynameoftheday I'm loving reading the meanings and origins of your names! See three posts back for a custom oblique holder giveaway. Giveaway goes through Sunday.

Hiked up to the A frame by our house and discovered it's the perfect spot for a hammock. 360 degree view of the mountains and valleys and the ideal spot for watching clouds roll by. Cuddling @epsilon in the hammock, eating sandwiches and chocolate-covered gummy bears was heaven. All of the busy-ness of the world around us just paused for a couple of hours. Today was very much a personal day, accomplishing very few tasks and responding to very few emails. I'll get on it tomorrow. #theresalwaystomorrow #datenight

klhansen : That is such a great idea! I love that hike.
tiddlewinks : Love the views from up there!
sweetwilliamfloralcreations : Magic!
whimsimobilia : Bonus! It was National Hammock Day!✨
rachelpullen : Sounds like the most perfect thing ever!!!
pennedbypalmer : Love this!
raayynuh : Wait, chocolate covered gummy bears?? I didn't know that was a thing! That view, though.
epsilon : @jweaver5 The A-Frame is some sort of geographical marker on the highest point near our house. Everyone just calls it the “A-Frame” because that's how it looks.
