We are a busy family and love having all this fun time together before school starts!!!

  • Amy Ballard

    School starts back here next week so our summer is coming to a close quickly. We made the most of our summer break with a family vacation to the Keys, then two weeks visiting family out of state, where our daughters spent time with their great-grandparents on the farm and exploring some of my favorite childhood summer venues. Our final hurrah was a trip to San Diego. The kids loved the Zoo and our tour of the USS Midway. Lots of great memories were made this summer!

  • Tiffany Miller

    Hi Tori, We live in Montana, so the cooler days will begin next month. We are enjoying our newest addition, a miniature potbellied pig that we named Hamlet. And there’s still plenty of days left for us to explore in nature & incorporate our findings into crafts, such as rock painting, creating our names out of sticks, & collecting pinecones, acorns, sticks & other nature items to add to our sensory box for Fall.

  • Tracy Martinez

    We live in Texas, so we’re doing anything that involves being cool. Craft Time at the Library, playing in the Kiddie Pool, Family Night at Chick Fil A and Baking in the AC. I make my 7 year old read the recipes and measure. He loves to bake and I love that he is learning too!

My grand nices birthday weas in April and I forgot to send the little outfit I picked out and of course now it is almost too small for her. I don’t have the money to replace it right now so this would be perfect. They live in Florida so summer is almost all year.

    Getting outside as much as I can…even if it means playing a little hookey. I was craving a little getaway so I took off work on a whim and headed down to the Jersey shore for a walk along the boardwalk.

    Hi Tori,
    I am writing you all the way from Ontario, Canada. We have actually met about 7 years ago in Almonte, Ontario, Canada. I believe you were filming House Sitter there. I was about 6 months pregnant.
    So this summer were are planning a trip to Old Forge, NY for a few days. There will be camping, water parks, things like that. Can’t wait. Also my 7 year old is really into crafts. We have made everything from cardboard castles to cards.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

  • Starr Brillinger

    We live in the Florida panhandle so we are at the beach every chance we get. Blessed to live 15 mins from the emerald coast!! Getting ready for my three year old son to go to preschool in sept.

  • katooooooo

    As I got my baby Noah on November, this summer was his first everything: first beach vacation, first time in pool so it was a real pleasure to use my time with my oldest boy Dylan and my little one

  • Chasenit

    Making summer last~~ we work in the garden together hoping to stash some veggies for winter, playing in the water, petting our lambs, and riding the horses and pony!! Summer is fleeting, for sure! LOVE the styling clothes– with a two and three year old, we would LOVE to go shopping!! :D

  • Tiffany Witherspoon

    I am trying to plan fun family activities for the weekends when my husband is off work so that we can make the most of the summer that we have left. I know that once summer is over things are going to get crazy with the holiday season nearly upon us and our baby girl due Jan. 1st! Eek! So much to do before then but don’t want to miss out on opportunities for summer family fun before things really get busy.

  • JC

    We are making the most of what is left of summer by raiding our garden for all the goodies and cooking up what we pick! My boys love tomatoes right off the vine…..

  • Joanna Rodriguez

    Not really summer vacation as baby is 10 months old…. But def keeping busy! Learning how to cook new dishes, learning how to feed herself, while lots of diaper changing!!! But doing it everyday makes me happy! Who wold have thought?

  • Haley Prather

    Living in Michigan we know that Summer is fleeting. This is a beautiful state with many gorgeous places to visit, Traverse City,Charlevoix, the beaches etc. However we spend so much of the year freezing our butts off that when the 69 degree weather hits you can find us in flip flops and sandals! Once the really warm Summer weather hits we know we have to soak up every ray of sunshine while we have it. We have a lot planned to make the absolute most of this Summer before it comes to a close (and our first baby starts Kindergarten.) We have been allowing her to throw lemonade stands whenever she asks even if our neighbors get sick of seeing us out there lol. We have planned visits to our local beach, is there anything better than a beach trip? Also we are planning a super fun birthday party at a gymnastics gym for our son! We love doing family movie bigs, gotta stay up late while you still can! And finally can’t forget the bonfires! Mmm s’mores anyone?

    Xoxo Haley P.

  • PSYCHGURL

    My wife just had our first baby on June 27, a girl, Olivia! So, needless to say, we’ve spent the summer enjoying her, and getting to know her, and getting our routine down!! It’s been so amazing and such a blessing to have had it work out that we were both able to be home during this wonderful time in her life and ours! Oh, and FYI, the outfit she wore home from the hospital was a Little Maven outfit! :) She looked GORGEOUS, of course! ;) Thanks Tori!

    Hi Tori!
    My son and I just got back from our local sprint car, and tractor races. He LOVES watching them! He really want’s to race a motorcycle when he get’s older. ( I’m not sure how I feel about that!)That’s just one of the many things that we love doing during the summer months. I love the little Maven line. Everything is so cute! And affordable! I work for a non-profit organization taking care of individuals with special needs and my sons father is getting ready to have a 2nd kidney transplant due to a kidney disease so he is not working at this time so we don’t always have extra money. Our little Adam is starting Pre-school this year and the little Mavin line is making it easier for us to have super cute, affordable things things for our little guy.

    We bought a zoo membership this year and are taking full advantage of it! We also are going to many local events and festivals. My husband and I are having so mch fun with our little man (3 in November) and we are expecting another little blessing in January! I love the Little Maven line and I am so looking forward to finding out the gender to start buying!

  • Amy Kelble Kuhn

    Thanks for the opportunity to win! Us teachers, here in Kansas City, have already gone back to school and began prepping for the first day of school. Therefore, my family & I just took a mini-vacation to the St. Louis Arch, zoo & Children’s Museum…to enjoy what was left of our summer vacation! :)

  • Mish44

    Being in the moment w my little man and cherishing the small joys of every day: puzzles, going outside, sprinklers and fun new foods!

  • CarrieAn13

    I like you on facebook and we are doing as many outdoor activities as possible! Cookouts, hikes, and lots of family time

  • Elisa Geissel

    Excited to plan our little girl’s 1st birthday party. Brainstorming one last family trip if we can.

  • trisha tate

    Birthday celebration today for our 7 year old and 3 year old marks summer coming to an end. We went to the water park to celebrate…great day!

  • Samantha Peak

    For our summer we are spending as much time with our new baby as we can. Not much time outside until next year.

  • Lauren Secord

    We are spending as much time at the beach and splash as we can. We also spend time at my brothers pool so my niece can hang with my boys as much as possible before school starts. Btw, love your Little Maven clothes! Great style!

  • Brandy Cockrell

    I am a Stay at home mom to three, ages 7, 6 and 4. I love all the quality time we spend together in the summer, just doing nothing! Just being together! I love your Little Maven line! Keep the cute clothes coming! :)

  • Stacy Poulin

    My husband & I are expecting our Baby Boy in December! We can’t wait! We are staying cool this summer by going to pools and relaxing in the air!!

  • Lindzie Warfield

    We’ve had lots of fun this summer!!! My oldest is about to start Kindergarten so to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of school we are spending today at Sesame place. I also am planning a small back to school party :)

  • srigli

    I start back to teaching two weeks before my daughter does, so I am planning on surprising her a few nights each week with special date nights – the amusement park, ice cream, the park, movie night, etc. she loves when I surprise her!!

  • trice125

    Relaxing and staying cool.

  • chhrystalk

    Since we are still super hot in Phoenix, I am still using my pool with my grandson. Hard to do much else in the valley of the sun until fall!

  • Stephanie Pitman

    We are swimming all we can here in Kansas City. My awesome husband is setting up our back yard for a swim in theatre tonight. It’s going to be a blast watching Oz Great and Powerful and a fun at home memory for the kids and us.

  • macal

    I’m a teacher so my summer is ending soon. Any time the weather is nice I love taking my 7 month old to the park to go on the toddler swings. It’s such a fun ‘Mommy and Me’ moment each day.

  • Andrea Amsalem

    We are spending the rest of summer hanging by the pool and going to the oak park splash pad. My niece is visiting from AZ, so we will be throwing her a hello kitty (its her favorite!) themed pool party next weekend. We will probably be making a trip to Disneyland as well.

  • Anastasia Borisyuk

    To make the most of summer we are taking weekly trips to the beach and park with family!

  • ilovemybeagle2

    Oh we have been swimming alot in the pool, and visiting all our local parks! Carter loves to swing and slide so its fun to see different ones! Just being outside as much as possible before the snow flies!

  • Kellie OShields

    I am taking my girls to the pool and the beach this summer. We are having the best time! They are two and four and love the ocean!

  • Erin B.

    We are getting as much time outside as we can. NC is experiencing a pretty mild summer with the temps, so outdoor time is a MUST! My 20 mo. old baby girl would look so great in the Little Maven line! Sparkle Dress & Tunic Set are just TOO CUTE!

  • Brooke Brittell

    I don’t have little ones of my own… But I do have nieces and nephews that I treat as my own since I am unable to have kids of my own. It is now Blueberry season in my area of VT and we have been picking buckets full and making tons of goodies along with “pop up” out door movies in the local towns since there is no drive-in anywhere near us. We love being in the outdoors its a shame school is literally 2 weeks away… My nieces and nephews would absolutely look adorable in these outfits and would make my friends kids jealous :)

  • Janet

    I have two boys. One just turned 7 and the other will turn 4 next month. My oldest just started back to school last week and his little brother misses him so much. My boys love to go swimming, ride bikes, do crafts, and play video games. That is pretty much what we do alot. We recently just took a trip to the beach for a couple days and visited a water park for my son’s birthday. Over this past weekend, we made a little bonfire and roasted marshmallows and made somores. We hope to do that a lot more when it gets cooler. I love to spend time with my family.

  • LMott

    I have two boys (7&3). My 7 y.o. starts 2nd grade this Thursday and is excited, but yet dissappointed in the end of summer. Both of my boys LOVE to be outside and anything they can do outside is all they need. I just can’t believe how fast time goes by…we just try to spend lots of time together whenever we get it. We love to go out back and make a bonfire and roast marshmallows or have cookout over the fire-no grills allowed ;). I love your Little Maven line of clothes and my boys would be so cute in these outfits. We love to be outside doing things and spending time together.

  • Rachel Butler

    My little girl is almost 3, Sept 6th is her birthday. She loves all types of clothes, especially when they are frilly and pretty. She loves her dresses and tutus and would wear them to sleep in if I let her. Any chance she gets she puts on a tutu, wears jewelry anywhere and carries a purse. She is a fashionista in the making like your cute Stella. My daughter would just love your clothes as much as her momma does.

    Molly, my daughter, and I try and make the most of summer, going to parks, crafts, swimming, going to the Zoo and learning about the animals as well as hanging out with our friends and family.

  • dallasfan38

    Summer is over for us. My little ones started back to school today. We were having fun reading, playing, gardening, and spending lots of family time together, though…it has been a great summer! Thank you for the giveaway!!

  • Ella’s Mommy

    I am making the most of my summer before going back to college by spending it with MY GORGEOUS, SILLY, AND SMART LITTLE GIRL. My daughters name is Ella and she will be a year old on AUGUST 30(LITTLE FINNS BIRTHDAY AS WELL!). This gift card would be such a blessing to us so that we could buy her some new adorable little maven clothing for her very first birthday!

    She and I read Tori’s blog nearly everyday. She loves to look at the kids!

    I allow her to pick out her clothes and bow almost everyday. She is a fashionista in the making and i hope her style turns out to be as good as stella’s!

    Tori is such an inspiration to every mother out there! She has given me so many ideas on cute things to make with ella and she seems to have a wonderful heart.

    Thank you for your give away!

  • MermaidMama

    We are making the most of our last week of summer by staying at the beach! It’s crowded in this hotel room with 3 kids 5 and younger and hubby and I, but we’re making memories! Thanks Tori!

  • Carrie Guthrie

    We went swimming, played at the beach, went to Lego land, worked in our garden and did all kinds of fun stuff this summer. We are winding down to get ready for pre-school next week. I would love a new wardrobe for my son…

  • Lovemymnms

    We are trying to soak up every last bit of sleeping in,playing in the parks, swimming, hitting at least one adventure trip a week and one last trip to the beautiful Jersey shore! I am more upset about returning to school than the kids!

  • Romina S.

    To make our summer last, we are enjoying as much family outdoor time together as possible. Whether it’s riding bikes or long walks and visiting the ducks and frogs or having an ice cream treat on our patio, watching the sun go down. These times will pass but not enjoying the moments.

  • mcsweetly

    We are so fortunate to work for ourselves, so we are cherishing every moment of summer with lots of family fun before our baby starts Kindergarten. Playing in the backyard, the pool and beginning the great bedtime wind down! I think I will have a harder time with her going to school that she will!

  • tiffany

    We are enjoying the lazy days of summer, eating ice crem, sleeping outdoors and hanging oit with family.

  • Tori Prenovost

    Spending our last weeks prepping for baby number 2!

  • Chelerella

    We are spending our summer mostly relaxing. I try to get home from work early enough every day to take the kids for a walk or to practice riding their bikes. We have our first big family vacation, since the twins were born, planned for the last week of summer, can’t wait.

  • jessica reeves

    We have spent every second that we can outside playing!

  • SuzanneH

    We are enjoying the end of summer by walking and riding bike outside as much as we can. It gets pretty cold here pretty fast in ND so anytime we can get outside, we do!

  • Key West Kids

    WE ARE SPENDING EVERY MOMENT TOGETHER “LAUGHING, HUGGING & LOVING” AS A HAPPY FAMILY OF 5!
    ♥♥♥♥♥.
    AFTER LOSING MY FATHER AND BEST FRIEND TO CANCER IN THE LAST YEAR, IT HAS BEEN AN AWFUL YEAR. BUT MY KIDS ARE MY INSPIRATION!!

  • Christi

    We are doing weekly family activities, outside if possible. We went blueberry picking last weekend, have had a picnic at a playground, took a trip to the zoo, and have gone swimming.

  • Randi

    We start back to school today! But we’ve had a great summer with lots of memories!

  • Lauren F

    Making the most of my time with my little boy before our little girl arrives this fall!

  • Leah Russell

    Making the most of my summer by enjoying all the time that I can with my eight month old Ethan. We’ve also spent a lot of time with my and my husband’s relatives!

  • Jennifer Thornton

    We decided each day we have left of summer, we are going to teach our kids something new. Last night was baking peach crisp…this weekend we tackle golf! Should be fun for us all!

  • Marissa

    The last few days of summer we are spending time together playing outside, ride bikes going on last mimi get away. Before school and the busy year starts.

  • WendyGeel

    Trying to make the best of any and all free time together when aren’t working or doing school. Time flies by so fast so never seems enough time in a day. Living in Texas we enjoy the pool and library to cool down. Best times spent :-)

  • susan rohrer

    Our summer has already ended. My oldest 6 started school May 31. We added one more baby to our crazy bunch in March. So we spent the summer at local water parks and the zoo. Our children all 4 of them love to be outside so we do our best at activities that allow them to stay outdoors.

  • Sara Byrne

    We saved our family vacation for August. Great way to end the summer!

  • Cindy Greco

    Planning a Sweet 16 & Happy 1st Birthdays for my youngest and oldest!! The whole time-going-by-thing has my head dizzy :)

  • deanna

    we are going to the park and bike riding as much as we can

  • Kathy

    I have 4 kids and their Dad and I are getting divorced and he just dropped a bomb on them that he is moving away from them we are here in NM to go to CA so they are devastated and trying to make them feel better by going to the library and having board game nights and getting ready for school to start all while spending time with my Dad who is very ill and is on a liver transplant list we are just trying to keep the faith of knowing everything has a reason and a purpose even if we don’t understand what it is!

  • Martha Tackett

    I am enjoying my two year old grandson as much as possible this year, since next summer he will be sharing my attention with “baby sister.”

  • Pholukx

    Evenings in the park and at the Bronx zoo with my two month old looking sweet in her little Maven dresses! I love how she looks in them and am sad she is outgrowing them already

  • Brittoshops

    Who said summer has to end? :)
    We are enjoying summer evenings in the backyard and gathering veggies from our garden! My girls are looking forward to selling lemonade this weekend and we have a special trip planned away the last week before school starts. They’d sure look cute in Little Maven doing it all!

  • Michelle

    Spending as much time as I can with my girls before my oldest has to go back to school! She has been working hard all summer to try and get over her fear of water and learning how to horseback ride

  • Megan Carrick

    We have mastered road trips! We have gone to 7 different states in the past month, and my amazing husband always finds us the best parks, schools, etc. to stop and stretch our legs (of course with little ones we had to make a ton of extra pit stops!) Our amazing littles spent 11 1/2 hours in the car on one of our travel days, and they never complained. It’s been so much fun seeing the World through their eyes.

  • toeknee

    Did I miss this chance… arrgghhhh… My 3 year old starts her deaf and hard of hearing class on Monday.. Summer is over. :( my heart is breaking to send her away 8-4 every day.. I feel jipped… you should lose your kid to school all day when you planned on being a stay at home Mom… just sad. and sharing… Tori you amaze me! Your so up beat! LOve love

  • Lani

    We have not spent the summer doing much out ordinary for us. My husband has been working his tail off and trying to get the business he started with my dad going. Our daughter and I have had a lot of one on one time. We pretty much spend our days together playing in her little pool,going for walks or practicing her letters and numbers. We are going home to Pennsylvania in September to see family we have not seen in over a year, so we are very excited for that:)

  • KitKat

    Taking our 8 year old Granddaughter Amber fishing and camping in the tent is what we are doing this summer… It is so much fun to spend family time with her when she comes for the weekends to visit…

  • Sandra chali

    When I married my husband I was already pregnant and so I didn’t have a job. He had a really good job though so I was able to stay home and take care of our son when it was born. When we had our second child we moved to a bigger house, but then strange things started to happen. Things would fly off the walls and doors would slam at night. Our oldest son talked about seeing figures and hearing voices. We consulted a medium and they said the house was haunted. After living there about a year more with only minor occurrences we moved out. That was when the bad luck started to happen. Everything started to fail, with my husband’s job, our money and our luck in general. I went back to the same medium and they told me that a spirit had followed me and placed a curse upon me for disturbing it and not being respectful in the previous house. He tried to remove it but was unable. The misfortune kept going on and getting more severe as I tried to search out someone to break the curse. But when I found Dr.Azonto spell he finally did it. Things started turning around almost immediately after he cast the spell and have been great from there! This was really a miracle for us, thank you . azontotemple@yahoo.com spell from the bottom of my heart!
