A MOUNTAIN ESCAPE (+ giveaway winner announced)

I spent the weekend escaping the heat and enjoying the mountain air and cooler temperatures with my little family in Park City.  We ate and swam and laughed and explored with dear friends.  It was exactly what we needed after one seriously stressful and busy summer.  I didn’t want it to end!

Top | Jeans | Scarf (similar) | Shoes (similar), also love these

This outfit was perfect for a comfort and practicality.  The sweatshirt totaly reminds me of something I would wear in elementary school when neon sweatshirts were super cool.  Doesn’t fashion have a way of coming full circle?

Thank you so much to all who entered the Freshly Picked giveaway!  As I soaked up every moment of quality time with Ruby this weekend, I was so touched by all of your loving comments, instagram posts, and thoughts about your little ones.  I wish I could give you each a pair!  I hope you’ll continue to use the hashtag #whatihopetheyalwaysknow as I continue to share thoughts and wishes from other parents to their children.  Thank you thank you to Susan Peterson of Freshly Picked for giving a pair of her fancy leather goods away.

And now for the winner…

Congrats to Dante DeLeeuw who said:

“My wish for my son, Dawson, is that he will discover and pursue his passions in life. I can only pray that those passions teach him life-long lessons along the way:  dignity and pride associated with hard work, the honesty in a tear, and a sense of humor is one accessory that never goes out of style.  I wish, above all, that he never, for one second, questions his parents love for him.”

Email me at to claim your prize!

I wish for that as well.  Thank you for sharing, everyone.  So, so special.  All of you have made me appreciate motherhood even more.  And what a wonderful thing.
