French Snacks For All!

Is it just us or is 'toddler life' synonymous with 'all day grazing'?! These boys are hungry + pawing through the pantry cupboards all day long. Dare I think about the teenage years?!?!?!? 
*insert all the shocked + crying emoji faces* haha
I was super excited when Bakerly reached out to me + ask if they could send us some of their French snacks.  Check this out. . . 

Bakerly announced their debut in the U.S. market by "crossing the Atlantic" with the famous Transat bakerly solo sailing race that takes place in May and finishes in Brooklyn, NYC. You can see more of their journey here // http://www.thetransat.com/
 How cool is that?!?! A little bit of french snackery right here in the Grand 'Ole USofA. Yahoooo!!
Plus all their bakery treats are non-GMO and completely free of preservatives, artificial coloring, artificial flavoring, zero high fructose corn syrup and zero trans fat.  So while it's not exactly a kale salad, I felt good knowing their little bodies weren't being pumped full of toxic yuck!
 Here's the rundown on French treats you can purchase //

Mini Brioches
Sponge Cakes
Crepes <---- the chocolate filled were my person fav

You can purchase them at all kinds of grocery stores here in California and even at Lucky's Market in Iowa City Iowa  ---- in case my home girls are reading. haha

So be sure to look up your hometown on their website here to see where you can get your own French snacks for your next spring picnic.



Wee Adventurers

An observant child should be put in front of observant things // Charlotte Mason

I am so excited to announce the launch of a brand new project I am organizing for southern California mamas + their little ones! I know the daily struggle of intentionally getting outside to explore God's creation when the days so quickly fill with mealtime routines, laundry + the daily grind of the little years.

The mission of Wee Adventurers is to empower mamas + their little ones to get outside + adventure.  We will organize the dates + outings + you simply show up + join the community atmosphere with other mamas. 

Each outing will be for two hours on a Friday morning with the option of joining us for a picnic lunch afterwards.  All locations will be within the greater Los Angeles area + safe for children of all ages. 

Our first adventure is Friday, May 13 at the tidepools in Corona Del Mar. Simply fill out this form to get all the specific details.  Our second adventure will be two weeks later at the Monrovia Canyon Park Waterfall Trail. Be sure to fill out the form if you want to join us for one or both of those adventures! 

You can also follow along on our Instagram feed here for continued inspiration + information on all our upcoming adventures.  See you all soon!!! xoxo

If you are a mama, I'd love to hear about your favorite ways to get outside + adventure!!  


Snail Mail Love

When I was little, I my favorite time of day was rushing out to the mailbox at 3 o'clock in the afternoon to see who had send me letters.  I had so many penpals from around the country + writing letters was truly one of my favorite things to fill my days.  I actually remember getting in trouble for something as a kid + my punishment was not being able to write any letters for a set amount of time! haha
Fast forward to the world of texting + Facebook, blogs + instant messengers. . . it's a rare day when anything but bills shows up at 3 o'clock each day.  

I'm working to make a conscientious effort to change that. . .  that's one of the reasons I love my wellness community, The Village Gathering, because it has made me become intentional all over again with connecting in the good old fashion way of handwritten letters.  I take weekly trips to the post office to send out little packages + goodies for my favorite girls + there is always a little card inside with encouragements + things I value about them.  

When Basic Invite reached out + asked to send me some of their customizable cards, I was just elated + grateful because I'm already mailing them out so often.  As I got onto their website, I was shocked + amazed at how truly customizable everything was. It was almost like a DIY card station on line. haha 
I got lots of thank you cards for my Village girls as well as for Emmett's birthday gifts, but they have so many more options! Birth announcements,  baby shower invitations, first birthdays, graduation announcements, even bar + bat mitzvah invitations!  Here's what they say about their selection 

"Almost Unlimited Colors - Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online.  Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 160 different color options.  So you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail.  This is what we feel like sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and it what we feel is our biggest draw."
I am so so thankful they reached out to me because now I know exactly where to go for all my customized cards for . . . . everything! My favorite part about working with Basic Invite was how I could switch up every little thing on the card from the font color, the the variation of dots + colors on a card + more. It's truly like a custom candy store for cards. haha

I'd love to hear from you. . .  what are your favorite ways to send out pretty mail to those your love?!
