You know those perfect Saturday mornings? This was one of them. I'm a horrible overbooker. I tend to pack our schedules full of activities, and then wonder why I'm exhausted at the end of every weekend. For once? That didn't happen. Lydia and I spent the morning wandering around one of my favorite parts of Santa Monica. We popped into the local library, we met up with Lydia's oldest friend (they were born 4 days apart) to play and grab lunch. And the best part? We had no time limits and nowhere to be. We'd walked by that library a million times, but were always in too big of a rush to stop in.
Lesson here? Maybe I should be leaving days in our schedule to just explore. Days to text a friend at the last minute, and see if they want to join us. Days to just BE. Because those mommy and me days? They're the best ones! Now, I wanted to talk a little bit about the brands I'm teaming up with for today's post. Why? They're some of the BEST. Minnetonka is one of those brands I've lusted after FOREVER. When I first started blogging, long before Lydia was born….I remember seeing all these “big bloggers” teaming up with Minnetonka. And I remember thinking, SOMEDAY….I'll get to work with them. They are such an amazing brand….I even wore their classic moccasins as a kid! And now, they're teaming up with my favorite mamas and me in celebration of Mother's Day. If you're as obsessed with these Mommy and Me moccasins as I am……get excited. Minnetonka is giving one of YOU a $100 gift card, so you can buy yourself or a mama in your life something special! (enter at the bottom of this post) And this bag? You guys know I love shopping for the great good. It's from Pip's Marche. They scour the globe, searching for artisans with amazing wares. Their site is a platform for these artisans to reach a wider market, expand their businesses, and help their communities. My bag is made in Ecuador, and I'm in LOVE with it (so is Lydia)! Since we're celebrating mamas, this is perfect time to announce……our Mama / Daughter Style Series? We've renamed it, and have a few new bells and whistles. We are calling ourselves the Mamas and Minis Style Collective…..and we wanted to invite y'all to be a part of the fun. Where? In our brand new facebook group. It's full of daily discussions, weekly sales roundups, and files with trends that are mama friendly. And? It's totally free. So, pop on over and join us!
