North Carolina Family Getaway

By Tatiana
Peter and I love everything outdoors. From kayaking to mountain biking to hiking, we love anything that has to do with being outside and being active. It was one of the things that brought us together - we met at the rock climbing gym while climbing the wall. True story :) I grew up in the Ural mountains of Russia and everyone who has ever met me knows how obsessed I am with mountains, rock climbing and hiking. Mountains are my happy place. Peter and I wanted to share this passion with our kids. Since it is tough to find even a hill here in Florida, we packed our bags and took off on a road trip to Sylva, North Carolina. For a few days we stayed in a wooden log cabin with breath-taking views of the picturesque Smokey Mountains.

Every day we went hiking or explored the town of Sylva and nearby towns. We visited Smokey Mountains train museum in Bryson City which we all enjoyed very much. We hiked to the Juney Whank falls in the Smokey Mountains National Park. We ate the local diner - Coffee Shop - in Sylva and met the nicest people. We even hiked the Appalachian Trail, the whole 1/4 mile of it! While it was all fun, the best part was doing it all together. It's nice when your kids enjoy the same things you do.

I was a little worried about taking girls hiking. They usually don't do well walking for a long time. But as soon as their little feet stepped on the hiking trail, something happened to my kids. It is impossible to explain the way their faces lit up! They were so excited to be in the forest, to hike up the hills and step over the tree roots. They were also excited to be together. On one of the hikes, Jules and Emma help hands all the way up and all the way down. I feel like this trip brought us closer and I am already planning our next hiking getaway.

Here are some pictures from this trip.

Silly face. Emma is enjoying our stop on the way to NC.
Two little bears - Emma and Mimo - kept me company the whole trip!

Smokey Mountain Train Museum was a lot of fun! Taking this picture - not so much for Emma.

Beautiful view from our cabin.

So much sister love! Jules is wearing Persnickety Clothing Lucille dress. Emma is in Duex Par Deux jeggings and Room Seven tee.

Mimo likes hiking too!

My Little Jules Supports Kids in Foster Care System

By Tatiana
A big box of love is going from My Little Jules boutique to My Stuff Bags Foundation today! We are sending a big box of boutique girls clothing and shoes by some of our favorite brands like Ooh La La Couture and Joyfolie. Every year thousands of to abused and neglected children enter the foster care system. Since 1998, My Stuff Bags has been providing these unfortunate children with new belongings and new hope by giving each child their own "My Stuff Bag" full of clothing, school supplies and other necessities.

"Imagine the trauma of being a child separated from all you know – parents, possessions and home – and not having anything to cling to for comfort. Sadly, each year, hundreds of thousands of children here in the United States must be rescued from severe abuse, neglect or abandonment. Traumatized and facing an uncertain future, they frequently enter shelters and foster care with nothing – no favorite stuffed animal, no special blanket. They are afraid, disoriented, and desperate for comfort. That’s where we come in."

One of the coolest things My Stuff Bags Foundation does is providing each child with a hand-made blanket donated by the caring supporters. These no-sew blankets are super easy to make yet they are so meaningful for these deserving kids. I have made and mailed a few fleece blankets myself and once you get into the 'groove' of things, it only takes 30 to 60 minutes to make one. You can turn this into a fun project to do with your girl while teaching her a valuable lesson! You can lean more about My Stuff Bags Foundation and find easy blanket-making instructions right here.

What Does The Fox Say... About Persnickety Clothig?

By Tatiana
Preorders for Persnickety Clothing Little Bo Peep collection started last Monday, February 3, and are going so strong strong. Among all the beautiful pieces from this boutique girls clothing brand, two Persnickety Little Bo Peep styles instantly drew my attention. These two styles are Persnickety Clothing Minnie Romper Fox Print and Persnickety Clothing Nia Top Fox Print. May be it's just crazy me, may be it is the "fox" song that we play for the girls every morning on our way to daycare, may be it's the cute, whimsical fox print on the fabric, but I am obsessed with these two little outfits.

Does anyone else like them as much as I do? Knowing my girls, I am 100% certain they will flip when they see these in their closets!
