Once in a Lifetime

Hello (almost) Fall! Did you all catch the eclipse this week?  My cell phone photos didn't look like much, but someone was nice enough lend me eclipse glasses and THAT was a great view.  How remarkable that on a random Tuesday afternoon we all got to enjoy something that happens literally once in a lifetime.  It made me happy to see so many people stop whatever important things they were doing and make time to be a part of that magic.  In 6th grade our teachers took us out in a bus in the middle of the night to see Halley's Comet, another one-in-a-lifetime happening. It's...

Smockingbird Photo Shoot!

Behind the Scenes Fun Girl Time Growing Up Smockingbird Kids Fashion Photo Shoot Smockingbird Smockingbirdies Texas _f _i _l _s

Not only did Jill organize everything, get a workout photographing a group of girlies, and edit tons of photos so that everyone could have individual shots to enjoy, she opened her closet to share with all of the Smockingbirdies who came. I don't think we've ever had a Smockingbird photo shoot.  It is so sweet to see years of work come to life in...

American Girl Brands We Love Fun Growing Up Smockingbird Kids Fashion Livie & Luca Shopping Smockingbird Smockingbirdies Winter

This post is completely overdue, but still worth sharing because the Smockingbirdies had the best time.  The girls received American Girl dollies from Santa a couple of years ago.  They have a pretty nice assortment of clothing and accessories at this point and seem to really enjoy them.  But the girls had never been to the AG store themselves!   So, we made it a girls day.  The Smockingbirdies brought their dollies and a pet, and we headed to AG Atlanta with appointments for hair, reservations for the bistro, and plenty of time to look and shop. The hair salon is really...

All the Fun of the Fair

Birthday Carnival Fun Growing Up Smockingbird Smockingbird Smockingbirdies Spring

The Smockingbirdies are a very important part of the team here at Smockingbird so when one of them has a momentous occasion happen we HAVE to share it with y'all.  And what bigger occasion in the life of a pre-schooler than when you turn 3? The theme for Mollie's birthday party was "all of the fun of the fair" and it was a great excuse to get the bouncy castle that my husband has been coveting for some time now. <img src="http://static1.squarespace.com/static/52b0d0ece4b0eb7def77ac12/t/537a56b6e4b0cb63d6fc8312/1432235877208/" /> It really was such a simple theme to go with for an outside party, as the kids...

Joining the #LoveTrain was easy peasy.  Children across the country made handmade valentines and picked up festive goodies to send to children at St. Jude's Cancer Research Hospital.  What a...
