Going through our summer bucket list and seriously finding we all just want lots of slow, down time. To daydream, to create, to imagine, to read, to cuddle. •
As a working mom I find summers hard. I want to just slow down too, take off time and play or run away on day trips with the kids. Jon is school teacher so he has summers off too. Making it super hard to focus working at home. Any tips on how to stay productive and also make the most of the summer? 🌞#thebanisterhouse

If I could fly
Then I would know
What life looks like from up above and down below
I'd keep you safe
I'd keep you dry
Don't be afraid ‘Amelia’
I'm the satellite
And you're the sky -Andrew McMahon


C A P S U L E W A R D R O B E : Early Summer Edition: its so sunny and with still a bit of a breeze on the best days. Making it nearly impossible to stay inside and work. I want to be wandering, exploring, lying on the grass and daydreaming with you while your childhood is still open and free. Before you go to school for an entire day. Before this chapter ends and another begins. Loving this playful stripey look for me by @samujistudio and the Lou Shell top and Camille Flutter short by @petitsvilains for you. Seems the perfect ensembles to get lost in the early summer with you. #merscapsulewardrobe #merillustration

‘There's a house we can build
Every room inside is filled
With things from far away
The special things I compile
Each one there to make you smile
On a rainy day

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say we've lost our minds
I don't care, I don't care if they call us crazy
Runaway to a world that we design’ -a million dreams
#mermaghouses

Seasons of motherhood
How did my little boys start to become young men?
All so fast
All so beautiful

Thankful for fleeting moments like this (as he’ll never let me kiss his forehead in public ☺️)

Amazing friends! before I even had a chance to formally announce the restock of my map for @gathre, they had sold out! I can’t even believe it. I’m thrilled to be thinking of all wanderlust that will be going on in your homes, classrooms or even on the go with you. We are taking Atticus, our 12 yr old, to NYC for the first time (well since he was 18 mo) next month and I can hardly wait! What are your suggestions for kids in NYC? (Oh and if you missed out, don’t stress, another restock will be coming). #mermagxgathre

CAPSULE WARDROBE school carnival edition: oh my, nothing stops my feed dead in the water like not having a mother daughter capsule wardrobe illustration ready in time. 🙀 It’s been a busy week full of end of the year school activities and lots of illustration jobs. This one woman artist/motherhood/doll maker juggle is just crazy sometimes. And sometimes I feel like I’m failing at all of these titles. 😬 And sometimes I simply need the t-shirt jeans and tennis staples to run around in and a great studio apron to get all messy in like this one from @toast. And miss Milla would be set for summer and any fun carnival puppet performance in @yellowpelota’s darling summer line. These pants and cropped tank have my ❤️. #merscapsulewardrobe

Feeling nostalgic for last years summer #wjxmmsummernostalgia. Raise your hand if you’re in the mood for boardwalk beaches leading up to carefree carnivals, vintage carousels, long summer nights and childhood dreams that lasts forever?💫🙋🏻‍♀️

Schools almost out for the summer and I’m thinking it’s time to plan out summer boredom buster activities and crafts. We’ll probable pick a craft, recipe and place to go each week (some of you might remember our Summer Fun Jars). What do you like to do to keep kids entertained in the summer? #mermagcostumes #mermagcardboard
