I don’t know about you, but there’s a time to get organized and it’s not five minutes before I leave my house. I’m running around trying to gather my essentials for a day out and I’m just getting in the car when I realize I’ve forgotten something. My wallet, my keys, on any given day it could be anything and it’s on days like those when I realize how crucial it is to have a good bag.
Our little family is heading into a big milestone in a few weeks — my oldest son is starting kindergarten! It’s hard to believe he’s already five and heading off to elementary school. Granted, he’s doing a half-day program and will be home before lunch every day, but it still feels like a pretty grown-up step for my little guy.
I’m a sucker for making memories. Taking pictures, making albums, journaling about special events, etc. I love doing each of them in the spirit of capturing and later, remembering, the events that took place. Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, holidays; there isn’t a special occasion that goes without being marked with a special token or memento. I love being able to look back on special occasions and have something tangible to remind me of how wonderful it was. Memories tend to fade, but I have found that keeping records and mementos have helped to keep them fresh.
We love these posh pachyderm products! Art work, bedding, clothing and more all featuring the lovely elephant.
It’s more important than ever to keep my face from the sun. With a family history of skin cancer and aging skin that can’t work as hard as it used to, to repair the damage I do to it, I need the extra protection of a hat. Sure, a sunscreen is a great idea, but sometimes I want just to run outside for an hour or so, and I don’t want to take the time to put on anything except a hat. But I want that hat to be cute and flattering so that I’ll want to wear it.
I’ve only worn one jumpsuit in my life. It was a costume for a play my junior year of high school. It was the 70’s and jumpsuits were the trend, but at 5’10”, there wasn’t an off-the-rack version that would ever fit me. While my version was a pale pink which I swear made it see-through under the lights, I did love the comfort and ease of wearing it. For you lucky girls under 5’7″, there are plenty of options and they’re back in the spotlight for summer in all colors, shapes, and patterns. Here are our favorites.
