    Aw, so sweet that the lost doll has returned!
    Um, I LOVE that article about Bill Clinton and the pantsuit…nice to finally have the opportunity to reverse the conversation. And Tentrr looks so amazing! I wish they had some sites on the west coast.

    Tentr sounds cool, but I feel like half the fun of camping is going shopping for food and borrowing all your assorted relatives’ assorted camping gear and making a go of it all on your own. Perhaps for a last-minute trip after a week during which I feel particularly lazy?

    We discovered better-tasting olive oil a few years back and now only use the basic brand for cooking, and use the special kind for drizzling on mozz and tomatoes, greek salads, and the like. yum yum yum

    Oh, how lovely that the doll made its way back to Faye! We just did a similar set up for our daughter’s book collection which seems to be expanding by the minute.. I just can’t help myself when I see a good kid’s book!

    Tentr looks amazing! We just bought a VW bus and may have to take it for a journey!

    Rancid olive oil: good reminder. Do you have any go-to brands, Erin?

  • Reply gina August 9, 2016 at 3:32 pm

    hi where did you find those suncatchers?

  • Reply Bee August 23, 2016 at 10:45 am

    Can I ask where those swim trunks are from?

      I think my sister got them from Petit Bateau.
