And a few Friday Favorites because visions of SPRING are dancing through my head!! For those of you who loved my reversible metallic tote, I found a new similar style in rose gold that is so pretty & affordable!! I have been loving my bag & use it instead of a diaper bag often!
These baby espadrilles are too cute for words, I had to get them for Eloise & can’t wait to see her chubby little feet in them.
Strawberry & toasted coconut bruschetta, this recipe had my mouth watering! They call it dessert but I call it breakfast. I have been craving fruit like crazy & can’t wait for Strawberries to be in season again.
Wishing you all a fun & relaxing weekend!!! XO

Hey there! I've been following your blog since 2011 when I found out I was pregnant with my son. He's just 6 months younger than Harper and your posts have been so helpful. Its great to hear your family is moving closer to you. We live just 10 miles south of Charlotte and the area is beautiful! Congratulations on all the amazing things going on in your life right now!

Glad everything is okay!! That's the thing about Georgia, the trees in the backyard are so tall and beautiful but scary at the same time! How awesome for your newly engaged brother and sister in law, congrats to them!! 🙂
Yikes! How scary!
When I was pregnant, I was sleeping on the couch one night and the transformer outside the living room window blew. I thought we were under attack! I don't think I've ever been that scared in my life! Lol…
Kiki Mincks says
Oh no! What a scary situation! So glad you and your family were unharmed. Sounds like you've got quite a few marvelous family events coming up. (:

This is totally unrelated to your blog post, but where did you get your porcelain berry baskets? I love them and have been looking for a nice set
We live in Charlotte! Great city! : )

We had a tree come down right in front of our house last week as well. Scary stuff! Glad to hear everybody is safe and there was no damage! 🙂

I totally understand the terror of having a tree branch falling just outside a window – when my son was a baby I was giving him a morning bottle before the sun came up, sitting in a comfortable chair next to a big window in our front room, when a really large branch fell. The sound was just as you described and since it was dark, I had zero clue what had just happened. I screamed. My husband came running out from the bedroom, and didn't understand why I found it so scary. Good to know I'm not alone!
Charlotte is great! My parents and sister live there so we visit often (from Chicago) and love it, too. It's a great small city, lots of good restaurants, shopping, parks, really cool neighborhoods. Lots of young families. Glad you are all OK after the tree fell! Harper looks too cute on her bike! 🙂 I feel like I should add, long time reader, first time commenter! ? love your blog! I'm due with my second at the beginning of August, I was so excited to see you're pregnant again too, congrats!! 🙂
I mean this nicely, but please get Harper a helmet. Even with training wheels, kids fall. I saw my brother flip over the handlebars of his bike and land on his head (this was way back before helmets were the norm). He needed brain surgery to remove a blood clot that formed and pressed against his brain. He could easily have died.

Wow, a tree falling would freak me out! How scary, I'm glad it didn't end up hitting your house! That strawberry bruschetta looks insanely amazing, thank you for sharing!

What a scary moment!!! We have a palm tree in our backyard and I'm always paranoid that it will come crashing down on us one day!! Glad no one was hurt! 🙂
Cami Hall says
Ah! This is so scary! My family had a similar experience when I was young and we were living in Texas. A little tornado brought a tree down right in our driveway while my dad was out of town on business. My mom was freaked! Glad everyone's ok!
That little bike is AWESOME! I'm going to have to remember it for my daughter when she's a bit older. We live in Charlotte. It's a beautiful, growing city with lots to do! Hope your brother enjoys it here and you have a good visit. It's such a family-friendly place!

When I was in 2nd grade we had a HUGE windstorm and our neighbors tree fell onto our breakfast nook roof and crashed through the ceiling at about 1 am. It was the scariest thing and my dad was out of town so it was just my mom and is kiddos. So glad your house was spared with that one!!
Oh my word that tricycle is so cute and I love that it can grow with Harper and be passed down to her sisters. I think a basket on the front is the sweetest idea!!

We live in Charlotte and love it!!!!

That had to have been super scary! Love seeing Harper's smile on her sweet little bike!
