Florida (and Georgia), I am keeping all of you in my thoughts and heart. I hope you all are safe through Hurricane Irma. I’m anxiously checking up on all of my friends and loved ones in the state…it’s hard to believe how massive this storm is, and how every single person I know in Florida is going to be affected. It’s also hard to believe that I’m writing about another massive hurricane…these are crazy times.

Trade Up

Target is holding their big Car Seat Trade-In event for the next two weeks! If you bring in an old car seat to be recycled, they’ll give you 20% off towards a new one. It’s a GREAT deal, and if you have an old car seat I highly recommend trading it in!
