#OneBigHappy Summer

This post was brought to you in collaboration with Gymboree and their #OneBigHappy campaign.

One of the most amazing things about becoming a mother has been the fact that every single moment, big or seemingly small, has suddenly become special. From the early mornings watching the sunrise and snuggling the boys to playing ball in the yard in the afternoon, there is never a dull moment anymore as a mommy! As a couple, my husband and I love to travel and explore, and this was something we wanted to instill into our children as well. This summer, we are on a mission to make every day an adventure.

Although we aren’t traveling anywhere far this season, we can encourage wonder and excitement in our very own hometown for our kids! As long as we’re together, there is so much fun to be had!

Many of us have lived in the same place for years, but have you truly explored your own city? This is a challenge that I am passing along to you as well!

  • Head to a local park or trail to hike and discover new views.
  • Find a museum that teaches you the history of your local area.
  • Grab a fishing pole and take the kids to the ocean or a lake nearby.
  • Create artwork together in your own backyard!

When it comes to making memories, the possibilities are endless & I encourage you to make the most of your #OneBigHappy Summer!

One of my favorite brands to shop for the boys is Gymboree, and their mission behind their #OneBigHappy aligns perfectly with our mission this summer. Gymboree encourages you to dress your children in stylish clothes that stand the test of playtime as well as keep them looking phenomenal throughout the day, no matter what you’re up to. When we start our day at the park, but end it at the museum, and then head on out to dinner, my kids are all set!

    Yes. Yes. Yes. I love everything about this post!!! And I so agree, there are usually a million things happening in our very own towns that we just haven’t experienced yet!! And I may be partial to the fun of dressing up little boys!! πŸ™‚ (I’m still hoping my son doesn’t hate me some day because of all the photo shoots!!)

    Aw I love this post! The clothes from Gymboree are just the cutest! I also notice the small things now since becoming a mom! I’m so much more aware of every little moment. I find myself saying “aw Gracie would love this” when I’m not with my daughter!
