So there is this account on Instagram that I’ve been following for what seems like forever. It’s called The Chaney Nest, which is a vintage inspired children’s clothier. Audrey, the owner and maker behind The Chaney Nest, has done an incredible job of gently building her brand over the course of the past several months with simple, beautiful photos of her handmade children’s clothes. And the clothes are ADORABLE. Honestly, I think you’d like them no matter your baby style! They tend to be smack dab in between modern and traditional, I think, so they’re pretty much just perfect.
And the exciting news is… The Chaney Nest officially opened for business last week! Lily Ryan loves her comfortable little bubble skirt from The Chaney Nest and, thanks to TCN, I was introduced to another precious children’s company called Fairly Friendly, which is where this bulldog shirt is from! Could that shirt be ANY cuter?!
Lily Ry is ready for football season with her subtle bulldog gear and chic printed skirt! And did any of you fellow Mississippians feel that slight hint of fall in the air yesterday morning?! When I stepped outside to let the dogs out, I just stood and took a few deeps breaths and just completely took it all in. It felt so good and got me perhaps just a little too excited for fall! 😉
I noticed as I was editing these photos that her skirt is quarter turned. Oh well! Can’t expect a toddler girl to keep things on straight for too terribly long! 😉
Can y’all believe it is AUGUST right now?! I’m in shock! June and July flew by entirely too quickly. I’m glad we live in the hottest state on the planet and still have a good bit of summer weather ahead of us because I really do love summer days and all the love that comes with summer!
I do heart fall, too, though… So I think I’m just gonna plan on being happy from here on out! So many wonderful things to look forward to, but more importantly, so many wonderful things to enjoy NOW! (As I once heard at a marriage and parenting seminar, “Don’t rush the seasons.” It’s easy to do. SO easy! I challenge you to take just a minute, pin point one thing you really like about THIS season, then make a concentrated effort to enjoy that one thing! I’m deciding right now to enjoy being outside with my babies as much as possible. It’s not something I can do year round, so right now, that’s my thing! What’s yours!?)
Thank y’all so much for stopping by today! It means so much to me! I’m working on some fun things coming up for this here little blawg that I can’t wait to share in the near future! In the meantime, I’m just gonna be frank: I would love to get a little bit more steady traffic to thehiveblog.com in order to reach a couple of goals I have set for myself. If you feel so inclined, please share a post you’ve enjoyed recently with a friend who might not know about THE HIVE! That would be so meaningful! But no presh! 🙂
Love y’all, mean it! Talk soon!
