Playdate!

Children's playdates

What happens when 2 creative blogging mamas get their itty bitties together for a play date?! AWESOME-NESS!

We were recently visiting Boston and had the opportunity to hook up with Surahbi of Third Eye Chic and her two sweet-cheeked daughters. Bitsy is all about finding creativity and after having met Surahbi through Bitsy it made perfect sense to get our little ones together for a city playdate! Surahbi is a talented photographer that started blogging about her fashion and her children’s fashion for similar reasons to me. We share a lot of similarities yet feed off of our differences.

If you ever find yourself in Boston (or live there!), definitely reach out to Surahbi of Third Eye Chic Studio to get some memories photographed. She is amazing! And if you want to get acquainted with her aesthetic and talent, head to her BLOG!

It was really neat to see how all 4 of our munchkins interacted with their own little style. They each own their aesthetics so completely. 2 creative mamas + 4 creative kiddos = total inspiration. After leaving Frieda Garcia Park in the South End of Boston we walked away with some great photos, new friendships and a ton of inspiration. One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about Bitsy are the connections I’ve made with other passionate folks. It fuels me, it fuels the inspiration behind Bitsy. Getting myself and my aesthetic out there has led me down such a cool path. I can’t wait for more!!

Come along on our Boston playdate below…We hope you get excited, inspired, creative…

HI FIVE! Bitsy Birthday Wishes…

Children's Silhouette 5th Birthday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCY!

And, POOF!, just like that our little string bean is FIVE! As you may remember, every year we take Lucy’ s picture for her birthday and have her silhouette created. This year we went with the “HI FIVE” theme and couldn’t love it any more (thank you to one of our favorite blogs Cloudy Day Gray for the inspiration!). Check out previous themes from past years below…

Lucy turns 4!

Bitsy was in the planning stages when Lucy turned 2, so here is a snapshot of her silhouette from her 2nd Birthday…

playing dress up at the beach!

Some cuties at the beach had these towels the other day and we had to grab some for ourselves. (Especially since the CT Sound can be chilly). Lots of times you need a good hug when you hop out of the water after a dip and these poncho towels totally do the trick! Your little swimmers will love the options they have to offer as well…it’s like playing dress up at the beach!
