Hey there! Hope everyone is having an AMAZING summer! We are thoroughly enjoying the long days by going to the beach and park as much as possible. Look at our wild garden! Isn’t it great?! We’ve had so many energizing, organic vegetables this year.
And how cute is Ivy’s new reusable diaper from Alva Baby?! Obsessed! I’ve had Alva Baby diapers since Ivy was a little baby and love their cute designs. When Alva asked to collaborate on a post, it was a no-brainer for me! Recommend a product I already use and love? Yes please! When I became a mama I became even MORE health and environmentally conscious than I already was. Plus, think about all the money you save by not using disposable diapers! I love having reusable diapers around. Even if you use regular disposable diapers, its nice to have a few of these on hand so you don’t need to stress out about running to the store to get more diapers when you’re almost out. It’s also great how their designs grow as your baby grows. They have snaps all over so you can make them tiny for a newborn or bigger for a toddler! We also use them for swimming covers!
Alva also sent me a wet bag to throw all the diapers into when I’m out and about and I can’t wait to give it a try! If you’re interested in trying out Alva Baby diapers check out their website at:

Thank you to my hubby for taking some shots of me and Ivy!
Hey Everyone! June is just flying by… CRAZY! This summer we’ve been really taking advantage of all the fun, free family events going on. Being a mom to a toddler is so fun! Ivy’s loving all the fun adventures we go on, whether it’s music in the park or going to the beach. I swear, I got so lucky that she chose me to be her mommy! Such a sweet and funny little girl. And I love our funny “inside jokes” that only a mom and her child could understand… gahhh… besties for life!
Hope everyone’s been having an amazing summer!
Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing fathers out there! So thankful for my hunny- and all he does for his girls!
Hey Everyone! I’ve decided to write a new post on the time capsule we did for Ivy’s first birthday party. I love this idea so much and it has been my top reposted pin on Pinterest, so I figured it needed it’s own blog post! The idea is really simple, and you can add any variation that you’d like! I’m just so excited that she will have this someday (17 years from now)!
For Ivy’s first birthday time capsule we cut out different colored sheets of paper, collected random stickers, and had crayons, pens, and colored pencils available. Some of Ivy’s cousins drew pictures, aunts and grandmas wrote heart-felt pages… at least that’s what they told me! Haha… part of the fun of this time capsule is that we decided not to read or look at any of them! After everyone was done they put it in the large envelope and we never peeked inside. The envelope is now sealed and in our safe until Ivy turns 18 (the year 2034!).
It’s not too late to make one for your child! It was special being able to do this on Ivy’s first birthday, but if you have older children I would still encourage you to do this! It will be so special for them to open one day! Older children can also write a letter to themselves, or draw a picture to add!
You could do this at a baby shower too:
Shop Amazon – Create an Amazon Baby Registry
Create a jar (or purchase one below) to insert wishes from everyone at the birthday party:
Large Dream Jar
Small Individual Jars
There are so many fun and unique ideas that you can create for a first birthday time capsule! After you’re done make sure you store it somewhere safe so that it won’t get ruined, and also somewhere no little fingers will be tempted to open it!
