    I was actually admiring lila’s headband in some of those photos. So happy to know where we can get one just like it. I love the kid’s string headbands, and will probably have to pick up a few different colors. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    it will be our last summer as a family of three, as baby #2 is due to arrive in early October. we plan on making every little outing as fun as can be…whether it be to the outdoor pool, popsicles on the porch or a trip to grandpa’s farm! (that is, if this momma can survive the heat :-) )

  13. cait May 28 2012 at 6:12 pm #

    Great etsy find, Andrea. I totally love the headband Lila was rocking and I love the southwest twirling dress (I want it in my size!!).

  21. Christine May 28 2012 at 8:17 pm #

    I will most definitely be looking forward to lazy days in the yard full of sunshine, cold drinks, inflatable pools, and cute babies.

  22. katie May 28 2012 at 8:22 pm #

    so hard to choose just one item but i am loving the kids braided headband – it is cute as punch!

  23. katie May 28 2012 at 8:24 pm #

    as we are venturing into the cooler season here in australia, i am looking forward to lots of hot chocolate, cuddles under blankets with my two cheeky poppets and crisp winter mornings with perfect blue sky days (we don’t get too cold where we are, so winter is mostly bearable!).

  24. Meghann May 28 2012 at 8:47 pm #

    The quilt is so easy on the eyes, I think I may have a soft spot for blankies. I could also see myself/my lovely nieces in thief&bandit’s headbands, how great for summer.

  25. Meghann May 28 2012 at 8:49 pm #

    Bonus shot: looking forward to a week in Jackson Hole with my husband and sons.

  54. Anna May 29 2012 at 7:02 pm #

    Looking forward to the beach along the shores of Lake Ontario as well as in foreign lands. Excited to soak up all the heat and sun we can manage and be thankful for sundresses and sandals.

  55. Corinne May 29 2012 at 10:36 pm #

    Slight problem, love it all!!! But if I had to pick just one and that was a tough decision alone it would be the Hand Printed Navajo Kids Tank Dress – GORGEOUS!

  56. wop girl May 30 2012 at 5:40 am #

    definitely the String Headband for my little Anna :-)

  57. wop girl May 30 2012 at 5:40 am #

    And I can’t wait for this summer and all the wonderful meetings we will have with photographers from the south of France :-)

  58. Madison May 30 2012 at 12:12 pm #

  60. meghan macmillan May 30 2012 at 3:13 pm #

    i am in love with the big heart tank for the kids! i think miss whitney would totally rock it (and after you told me about the site, derek said ‘no more’ so i didnt get to buy it for her :( so sad! haha)

  61. meghan macmillan May 30 2012 at 3:16 pm #

    and this summer, now that whit isnt such a ‘baby’ anymore, i am totally looking forward to many outdoor water park dates, many bicycle rides, farmers markets and watching her hold popsicles by the popsicle end and not the stick end :)

  62. holly May 31 2012 at 9:30 am #

    i love the hand printed baby leggings for my 9-month-old boy.

  63. holly May 31 2012 at 9:37 am #

    this summer is our first with a baby who is almost crawling everywhere! no big trips this year, just to visit grandma out of state and enjoy the california sunshine.

  64. Kyla Hornberger May 31 2012 at 12:48 pm #

    Yes, please ~ I believe I am smitten, too!

  65. Amy S May 31 2012 at 7:49 pm #

    The big heart tank – so cute! That bracelet you got is pretty awesome too. My daughter would definitely be into one of those headbands. :)

  66. Amy S May 31 2012 at 7:52 pm #

    The summer (and it’s already definitely feeling like summer where I am in MD – it’s been like +32 degrees celsius down here), I am most looking forward to spending some time with my kiddies at the beach, picking fruit at the orchards, and getting a play set for the backyard!

  67. Peta June 1 2012 at 12:47 am #

    So hard to pick, but I think I’d have to choose the Braided Fabric Bracelet in Mint and Hot Pink. Yummy!

  68. Peta June 1 2012 at 12:48 am #

    And the thing I’m most looking forward to this winter so far is a roadie with one of my loveliest friends next week! Can’t wait! x

  69. Jackie R. June 1 2012 at 1:53 am #

    I’m excited to take my daughter and my son (she’s 3 and he’s 7 months) to the beach, to their first Angels and Giants Baseball game yay!!! I got a smile on my face thinking about it!
