Baby Bare Necessities: 0-6 Months

Baby Bare Necessities: 0-6 Months

What do you need to have before baby arrives? Sing with me, “Look for the bare necessities. The simple bare necessities.” Preparing for baby is an exciting and joyous time.

Crunchy Collection #2

Welcome to Crunchy Collection #2!

It’s June! Can you believe it? We’re halfway through the year already! Summer is such an odd season to me, especially here in Florida.

This Crunchy Collection is filled with things that I can work on over the next couple of months. I hope you will set some goals and share them with me so we can reach our goals together. Let’s have a fun AND productive Summer! On a side note, I must be feeling ambitious because this post ended up being quite lengthy but I saved some of the best things for last so please read through to the end.

A week and a half ago, we packed up the car with my new Canon Rebel, my favorite glass water bottle, and some sunscreen to head down to the St. Marks Lighthouse for a sea turtle release. The release was scheduled for June 3rd at 3pm, which happens to be the most brutal part of the day here in sunny Florida. Needless to say, it was important for us to be prepared for the intense sun and excruciating heat during this exciting event.
