New in the shop: The Hip Pouch No. 102!

hip pouch caroline-made maggie whitley

Well hey Monday, so good to see you! :) It’s been six months now since I started running (here’s a detailed FAQ post), which is exactly what inspired me to create a hip pouch. I needed something that would making running easier, because for me, convenience = success.

The first hip pouch I designed sold out in a matter of days (awesome!), so with this second design I made it a little larger so it could hold a few more things — including a larger phone.

The Hip Pouch No. 102 includes a mix of polka dots, orange & golden yellow, and can be tied around your waist in a pretty bow or a double knot.

PS. So you’re not a runner? Not a problem! Wear it at the mall, your end-of-summer vacation, the park, the library, a concert, the coffee shop, the grocery store, or the library. Do you have another place you’d wear our Hip Pouch? Leave a comment below and enter to win one. I’ll pick a winner in a few days, good luck and thanks for entering :)

This giveaway is now closed! Congratulations to our winner: Heather L.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

pear tree greetings valentine's day cards maggie whitley

Just last year we were celebrating Maxwell’s first Valentine’s Day (he was 11 months old), and now we’re celebrating with new baby Natalie? Life, you are crazy awesome. I feel so blessed to be mama to these two children. It’s a real honor to be raising them with Zack. Some of my favorite moments right now are how often Natalie smiles and chit-chats (surprise, surprise?) and the personality Maxwell has developed. I have to keep an eye on him though, he is very determined to “ho chew” (“hold you”).

Pear Tree Greetings, our long-term sponsor and friend, has a really fun selection of Valentine’s Day photo cards. These heart-shaped cards are darling and are such a fun size, but I also love the polka-dot detail on the backside of these cards. In the end I decided to order this textured heart design. Yay!

I remember decorating brown paper bags in Elementary School and taping them to the back of my chair. My goodness, that was over twenty years ago! After lunch my classmates and I would go around the room delivering our Valentines and a little piece of candy. I always loved celebrating holidays at school because they usually involved some sort of craft and snack ;) Pear Tree Greetings even has a fun selection of smaller-sized Valentine’s Day cards for kids to deliver to their classmates or playgroup friends.

Max and Nat aren’t in school yet, but they made a little list of family and friends to mail a Valentine’s card to. Now if only they could hand-address them!

PS. I tucked away a card for each of their baby books. Having tangible memories from when our children are little is something I cherish.
