Raptured

Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a great weekend.

No, we weren’t raptured. I just didn’t know what to title this post and was inspired by Will’s shirt for The Rapture.

We had Lily’s 2nd birthday party yesterday and it was a success.

I have a lot of pictures to go through before I share them with you on here but, I wanted to participate in Mandy’s Steppin’ Out because it has been quite a while.

So, here is what we wore. Come back tomorrow to see pics of the party!

Tiny apple… small style

One of Lily’s favorite things to do when we go for walks around here is to stop by the apple tree and pick a “tiny apple” to eat.

It’s something we do almost daily and something I will miss doing with her.

This is our last small style post here in West Virginia, we will be leaving on saturday.

We have had a wonderful month and will miss this place madly.

The two outfits below are my favorites from last week.

Linking up to Morgan for Small Style.

top- Old Navy. shorts- babyGap. leggings- Old Navy. moccasins- Minnetonka

in case none of you have noticed, this is Lily’s “smile” pose for the camera. lol

Small botanical style

Yesterday we spent the morning at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden with our friends Zura and Lien.

Despite all the mosquitoes that tried to eat all 4 of us up, there was still enough splendor for us to feast our eyes on and keep us there for a while.

Tea anyone?

If you are a mom or a grandmother, most likely you have heard of Tea Collection.

Tea Collection is a wonderful kids clothing line that started in 2002 in San Francisco.

They design apparel inspired by the beauty they discover on their amazing travels.

We were fortunate enough to have been offered a gift certificate from Tea Collection and let me tell you, it was hard deciding what to pick because EVERYTHING is so great!!

There was this dress.

And this one.

And this one! (ugh, I want it for myself)

But, since Lily has a lot of dresses, we opted for this sharp Painters Plaid Tunic and French Terry Shorts.

Both the shirt and shorts are of the softest cotton.

Lily really could have used size 18-24mths but since she is growing out of clothes so fast, I got her a size 2T.

Based on a couple of other items that Lily has from Tea Collection, I can tell you that it is great quality.

The clothes wash great, the colors don’t fade and they don’t shrink!

We were fans of Tea Collection before and we will continue on being fans.

If you haven’t checked out their clothing, you really should.
