Babiekins Magazine, Little Style

WRITING & WORDS :: I’m back from vacation with a story in the Summer Issue of Babiekins Magazine, and more!

Toddler standing in front of rainy windowIn case you couldn’t tell from the photo, Aveline and I are back in Florida. We enjoyed a few glorious weeks in the California sunshine with our incredible family. I love them so and it certainly was hard to leave them all behind again (but wonderful to be back with Josiah!)

Thank you Sylvia (Hamburg), Annika (Finland), Corrie (Dallas), Alyx (Frankfurt), Natalia (France), Igor (Paris), Tina (Costa Rica), and Kate (London). The Summer Vacation Tour was very well received and I plan to continue to feature locations from time to time as I receive submissions.

Alright then, so what else has been happening across the interwebz while I was away?

Babiekins Magazine Blog - Get the Look SeriesAlso, I’ve been continuing my weekly series at the Babiekins Magazine Blog, in which I show you how to dress your little one just like  (a stylish version of) a story book character. Here are the  most recent books and looks:

Annnnnd….I’ve saved the best for last. :-D The summer issue of Babiekins Magazine was just released a couple of days ago, and I’m thrilled to say that not only have I joined the editorial team as Copy Editor…I’ve also written a little something about my childhood adventures! To read my summery piece in Babiekins Magazine Issue 9, scroll through to page 112, or go to the Table of Contents and click on “Fort Building”. I’m still giddy over seeing my work illustrated by the talented Gigi Rose Gray.

Whew, that was a lot to catch up on, and doesn’t even include my California adventures! I’ll be sharing some photos in the days to come. Ah, it’s good to be back.

So, what have I missed in your lives? Any blog posts from the past month you want me to see? Leave a link in the comments! xo

I seem to have a theme going on this week. I love how that happens without me even realizing it or planning it out ahead of time.

I miss acorns. Florida is severely lacking in the towering oak department.

I really like the fun, bold stripes on this baby blanket. There are other great striped color combos over at The Purl Bee.

Alright, back to Monday chores! The house looks like it’s enjoyed the weekend a little too much…
