Children's Book "BOO" by Jeanna Ganas

This school year has been such a whirlwind for this mama. My oldest is now in second grade (how did that happen so quickly?) and my youngest is now in full-day Pre-K! It feels like yesterday I was feeding them bottles and rocking them to sleep in the middle of the night. They have shown me how fast time flies and to take time to relish all the small moments in their little bitty lives.

This morning at school was one of those moments that I couldn't help but be so proud and excited for them. Both of their classes attended a book reading from our town's very own Published Author, Jeanna Ganas. Her new children's book, "BOO" is a TRUE story about her pre-k class hamster named "BOO" who escaped in the middle of the night. The story takes readers on the sweetest journey on finding his way back home with a wonderful take-away message to "Never Give Up!" The kids eyes were in awe as they watched and listened to Jeanna's story telling. I don't think the teachers have ever seen an entire Pre-K group sit as still as they did. At the end of the reading Mrs. Jeanna brought a very special guest for the kiddos to pet. They were so excited to get to meet BOO (in plush form) making this book reading even more special.

When we arrived home, the kids couldn't wait to read their very own signed copy of "BOO" and it made this mama's heart smile. Boy how wonderful it is that there are so many authors with such huge hearts for children that they dedicate their time and talent to encourage, inspire and imprint beautiful messages that they are able to take and use in their own every day lives. If you are looking to add  to your child's book collection, "BOO" has the most beautiful illustrations that bring the pages to life and the sweetest message for the children to take with them on the forever growing-up journey.


Spring Floral Baby Shower For Sweet a Sweet Girl

Spring is in the air!! Or we like to pretend it is anyway. It’s more like Pollen and allergens in the air here in South Georgia. I love Spring Season though. There are so many beautiful colors and wonderful smells coming out of the woodworks, popping up all over triggering so much creativity in this old brain of mine. When it came time to create a speical baby shower in honor of a precious baby girl that we will be welcoming to this world soon, I couldn't help put bring the outdoors in!

With flowers abound, I went on a wreath making spree and never looked back. I knew flowers had to take the stage, however to avoid overwhelming the special occasion, I went with a simple embroidery hoop wreath display. I added various sizes with greenery, flower blooms and a few baby friendly hyms that would be such a sweet touch and keepsake in baby's nursery.

Freshly Picked Sandal Launch + Giveaway

Hi friends! Spring is here (or somewhat depending on where you live) and Summer is just around the corner! I always look forward to this time of year, Sun shining, Flowers blooming and the latest spring and summer fashion trends popping up on my social media feed! My favorite one that I just so happened to receive an email about was in regards to my favorite kid's shoe brand, Freshly Picked! Since my babes were born, I always had a sweet pair of Freshly Picked Moccasins waiting on them and loved how they protected their feet in the sweetest way.  Now that they are all grown up to the ripe old age of 5 and 2 (I knowI'm a little dramatic), their moccs have definitely seen better days, however thanks to the genius behind the brand, Mompreneaur Susan Peterson - Freshly Picked just launched their new line of gorgeous gender neutral leather sandals for small babes all the way up to Big Kids! These sandals are not only beautiful  they come with an amazing feature that ALL moms will appreciate!! Keep Reading....It gets good!

Freshly Picked is known for the innovative construction of the modern day moccasins for baby and toddlers, so it when it came time to create their new summer style shoe they did not disappoint! These sandals are made with PREMIUM leather (what FP is known for) allowing the straps to fit comfortably around your child's little feet. They are water-risistant so that our kiddos can still be kids!! They are constructed with a soft padded premium leather insole and cushioned sole for added comfort. My favorite feature that will have every mom reading this raising their hands singing Hallelujah! is the prong-free buckles???!!!  Can I Get An AMEN! Yes you read that right, see video below for demonstration and proof!

Is this not the best thing since sliced bread?  When we received our Freshly Picked Sandals, I could not wait to try them on my littles, amazed at how incredibly easy and stable this buckle truly is. No worries about it coming loose or kid's who are sized in between buckle holes. You just slip through and go!! And the strap lays flat and comfortable on my kiddos ankles, so no irritation or rubbing. These are truly FANTASTIC!
This past Saturday, We went to our local SnoCone Shop Snopocalypse to take advantage of the nice day we were having and it was so nice to be able to slide them on, buckle and go without the hastle!
