Little Girls and Hugs and Kisses

Jaime Lackey Photography

This is one of my favorite pictures of a little girl and her mom, or cousin, or sister. Isn't it beautiful?

Tomorrow my family and I are packing up to head up to Wisconsin to spend Easter with my Mom's side of our family, and all of my little muchnkin cousins! Taylen (4), Tannen (10), Mckenna (8) and Mckaya (2). Quick, say there names 5 times fast! I love spending time with them, laughing and experimenting crazy things... ;)

Running through the fields and building fairy huts for Polly pockets and cuddling up with a big bowl of popcorn and a movie at night, how can I can look forward to seeing them?!

Tomorrow is packing day...one thing that I've always wanted to do was use a vintage suitcase rather than a regular bag. So much more fun, don't you think!? However, the two that I have...umm, by accident I locked them and they didn't come with keys. I really have to get them open somehow though, as I do have plans for them!

Having such adorable cousins as I do, I can't help but LOVE looking at little girl and boy clothes, imaging I could stuff their wardrobes with older cousin gifts of super adorable clothes! First stop? Tea. Darling little girl clothes, little boy clothes, and boy oh boy, their baby clothing is to die for!

That nautical Marina dress (far right image) from Tea is so stylish! Baby keeping tabs on the nautical style indeed!

1: Asos 2: Tea Ruffle Sleeve Top

And this ruffle sleeve top? Darling.

There are so many options for adorable kids clothes, it’s so hard to choose! When I look at Teas clothes, I just think they look so soft and cozy, and wish that more of my clothes looked that comfy!

  17. Such descriptive writing:
    "Running through the fields and building fairy huts for Polly pockets and cuddling up with a big bowl of popcorn and a movie at night, how can I can look forward to seeing them?!" I so agree. Spent Easter with my nearly 3 year old granddaughter, trying to fly kites and catch insects in her net. Ah the simple things in life! Hope you had a most excellent Easter in WI with family.
    Please stop by if you have a spare moment and take a look.
