a lovely living

Happy Friday! Yesterday we celebrated my baby turning 4 (to be clear, she will always be my baby) and she loved every minute of her day. From waking up to some new goodies (this ice cream shop was the biggest hit), to popsicles at preschool, birthday cake before dinner (because big brother had to run off to soccer) and her favorite meal, meatballs and noodles. All three of our kids birthday’s fall within four weeks of each other so we don’t have big parties individually each year. We do however, give them the option of taking a day trip somewhere as a family and the vote this time was to visit Lake Tobias Wildlife Park. We’ve been there a couple of times and everyone always enjoys the park, the animals and especially the safari ride where they get a chance to see and feed the wildlife up close.

Completely unrelated, today’s post is providing some inspiration in the straw bag department! They’ve been peaking my interest as I’ve spotted a few I like here and there, so I figured I’d do a little digging to uncover my favorites. These all fall under $100 with styles ranging from handbags to totes, cross body’s and clutches. I love the chic yet casual vibe they provide. Perfect for those warm summer months. They’d also make for a pretty nice last minute Mother’s Day gift as well ;)
