This summer is going to be so much fun now that Zaden is walking, exploring, and wanting to be outside. We have already spent countless hours at parks over the last couple of weeks but I cannot wait to play sans jackets. Zaden loves going down slides and observing other children playing, he especially enjoys going to the park with his toddler friends (;

On another note, how lovely is this bracelet from Threads? I love the simplicity of the bracelet and that it is subtle yet eye catching. I chose the silver pixie since it's a bit more versatile and will go with just about anything in my wardrobe.

Here is a little bit about Threads from their website:

Threads is a cause driven business that changes the future of at risk youth. They come from various backgrounds, but all have one thing in common, they want to break the cycle. By employing them, we instill values of self reliance and hard work. They are paid fair wages for the bracelets they make, and in turn are able to pay their way through school. Many of Threads employees are first generation college students. They dream of becoming nurses, broadcasters, writers and engineers.
