As I write this I must confess I’m sitting on the beach. The weather forecasted high 80’s so we opted for a little sand and surf ‘field trip.’ The day held up to be just as fantastic as planned, and as I watch my husband and littles dig for mussels at sunset, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Thankful I get to spend my days and nights with this bunch.
With that said, I feel it’s important to treasure one-on-one time with each of them – and yesterday, Adalyn (my 5 year old) and I had the opportunity of spending the day just the two of us. We ventured around Seattle for a little makeover, lunch, and of course a teeny bit of shopping. :) With May being a focus on Motherhood, I thought it would be fun to share our adventure with you and hopefully inspire you to take a day with your little and just enjoy the cool part of parenthood.
We kicked off our Mother-Daughter Date with the Bartell Drugs Spring Beauty Event. They are hosting free makeup consultations, product sampling, and giveaways all week in select locations. We stopped by the Capitol Hill (Seattle) store for mini-makeovers and to shop the big sale…
We were at the Bartell’s Spring Beauty Event for about 30 minutes which was perfect for my little sidekick. I highly recommend stopping by this week (days/times listed below).
