In My Library Tote: Preschool Book Picks for June

Our library started putting a little basket of staff favorites next to the check-out kiosk, and I think it's such a great idea. I'm in my library pretty regularly, but it's mostly just to pick up my holds; I don't do a lot of browsing. It's nice to have a few hand-picked favorites right in front of me that I may not find otherwise. I've come across a few that Jona has really enjoyed that way.

Here are a few recent favorites from various sources, including the library basket.

Violet Lennon at 8 Months

Violet turned 8 months old during our recent trip to Minneapolis, and I have to say I'm loving this age so far. Here's a little update on what Miss Violet has been up to lately.

In My Library Tote: Book Picks for June

Somehow the month of May came and went, and I forgot to do a blog post about what I read. Better late than never though I guess, so here are a few recent books from my library tote.

Drawstring-Waist Skirt with Sneakers (and more from #LYBLforLess week 7)

I tend to live in denim, but when it starts to get hot outside I like having other options. I love finding skirts that work just as well dressed up as they do styled casually, and I think I found a winner here with this drawstring-waist one from Loft.

Paired with a tee shirt and slip on sneakers, this skirt is the "fancy" (although barely so) element for my fancy + casual prompt for this week's #LYBLforLess.
