    Blueberry lemonade fizz from Valley & Co. | Rippee PhotographySummer weather has crept in around the Pacific Northwest. That can only mean one thing: cocktail time! This recipe is easy to make in a snap when guests show up for impromptu entertaining but would also make one pretty little signature drink at a wedding. Make them in batches in decorative glass pitchers!

       Baby got stack. (I wish you could see he's wearing his "I wish I was a little bit taller" tee )
       #tbt to a year ago today -- our first family neighborhood walk selfie as a family of 4 with a teeeeny Calvin in my favorite @sollybabywrap. Can't believe we'll be doing this again, but Calvin will be in that tricycle and Charlie will be on his scooter or a bike, with another (yet to be named) baby boy in my wrap! Speaking of names, naming a 3rd boy is super hard! We have a couple of ideas, but I'd love to hear your favorite baby boy names. Everyone is asking if it will be another "C" name b/c of Charlie & Calvin, and I don't think so, but bonus points for great "C" names just in case! #timeflies #wheresthepausebutton
