JUNE! It’s here! So soon! I feel like this is going to be a good month. Anyone else have that feeling? I want to have dinner parties (lots and lots of dinner parties!) I want get outside more— even if it means sweating like crazy. I plan on using friends and families for their pool for more swim-time (thanks in advance)! Possibly more beach time with Miss Marlowe too– depending on the heat. I may or may not be taking a trip to New England at the end of this month– that’s still a little up in the air. I’m thinking my little babycakes will be walking this month… maybe/hopefully, she’s crazy like that. Who knows. All I know is this month feels *new* with adventure.

If you take a peek to the right —-> you’ll notice all the same sponsors are up from last month. Why? I didn’t want to mess with all the sponsoring jazz this month, and instead of taking these down I decided these should stay up for free 🙂 I mean, why not… they are all pretty rad shops and blogs! I recommend you check them out. But! If you’d like to set up a sponsorship for next month, then contact me! 🙂

We’ve reached 400+ google connect followers this week, so it looks like we will be kicking off the month with another handmade giveaway! Yeah? Yeah!

This giveaway is brought to you by Starbugaloo! The creator of Starbugaloo is Sara, Eric’s sister… and while her shop is now closed, I’m hoping we can push her to open it back up. I know she has the pieces already made to do so 🙂 All her designs are made from vintage, repurposed, and recycled materials.  Marlowe lives in her little smock dresses. They are fabulous– especially for this heat (I assure you, your summer heat is quickly approaching too). I stick her in a diaper and tie a smock on and she seriously could not be cuter. There is a huge assortment of different colors, styles and sizes. For this giveaway: the winner will receive TWO dresses— whatever size they want– baby up to toddler 🙂
