July, I miss you. It’s like it was just yesterday when you were here. Remember that time we discovered a secret beach?
We stopped and chatted with the man in the background of this photo. We found out he walks the beach twice a day to make sure there is never any trash and that his wife’s family invented the technology that detects underwater bombs. Turns out we discovered more than just a secret beach that day. Psst: The shirt I’m wearing in these photos is no longer available but you can still learn about their cause here.
And remember when Paigely was really into taking photos and I let her because of this article on Scary Mommy? She took this one of me pushing Decker to the local Farmer’s Market in a beautiful stroller sent to us from the Mamas & Papas company.
A stroller so beautiful I felt I had to rise to the occasion and shower before pushing it in public. If you look closely you’ll see that the wheels and frame are gold and our grass is thirsty as hell. The stroller is a Limited Edition Urbo 2 in gold and midnight blue fabrics and yes I absolutely matched my outfit and shoes to it. I mean I showered so why not go all out.
Speaking of matching. Remember that time I found the cutest mother-daughter clothing line called Joey Et Chloe and staged our own photoshoot? This brand offers handmade Mommy & Me outfits that are classic and refined – not cheesy and juvenile – and I feel like that’s really hard to do. They are made from gorgeous Italian silks and lucky for us even matched the flowers in our front yard.
Speaking of our yard – remember when the kids would play for hours on our JumpSport Trampoline and I actually got to weed the flower beds? Maybe this sounds a little funny, but I think Decker and Paigely have bonded on this thing. They come up with games all by themselves and teach each other new tricks. Sibling bonding and a damn good looking flower bed? I feel like that’s a lot to ask from a trampoline but I’ll take it.
July, thanks for keeping it real. Come back soon.
