You know that moment when you find someone that has such passion for what they do with their life that you can’t help but want to be near them, because you know passion is courageous and who doesn’t want passion? Yeah. That was how I feel about Amy of Little Hip Squeaks. That girl has drive, and she’s creative, and I love that! Amy is a fellow Handmade Maker focusing on products for babies, tots and kiddos. Maxwell has some of their leggings and it’s true, they’re incredibly comfy and awesome.

My friend, Devon, inspires me everyday. She had a baby in January diagnosed with Pallister Killians Syndrome. Her beautiful baby girl Berkley was in the nicu for months and still has therapy weekly. She makes everything look so easy and I’m sure it’s so hard. She is the definition of strength.
My friend Kristi inspires me. She is completely selfless with her time. She gives back to our community more than I could fathom with my own time.
Amy (http://www.bestdayeverphoto.com) is amazing – she doesn’t let her albinism act as an excuse for sitting on the sidelines but is actively chasing her dreams, doing hard things, and balancing being a wife/mama/maker, too!
All of my friends inspire me in different ways!
love love love these items! Your foxy pouch is adorable!!
I have a friend whose husband died in Iraq. Her strength and determination inspires me every day!

My friend Christina inspires me to keep moving forward with my very small business that has gotten off to a rough start. She has a small business and it’s thriving after months and months of hard work. I hope to be where she’s at someday and then we both succeed even more after :) This is such a great giveaway. xoxo
My sister inspires me with her awesome devotion to our Lord!
My best friend since I was 12 has always been there for me and when we were young, we had always hoped our husbands would get along….well, we married brothers 12 years ago and I love that we will always be family. I can always tell her anything and vent my frustrations and my faults and she will never judge me. Just encourages!
My sister inspires me. As of this week, she is a published author… no small feat! She’s a great wife, mom, friend, sister, public speaker… and now author! Her book is geared for the busy Christian mom and is all about getting organized in your home, which in turn results in a more clutter-free and peaceful spirit. God is using her in mighty ways to touch the hearts of fellow mamas!
ps- I’m expecting baby #3 and my due date is tomorrow. What a perfect giveaway!
My husband, my best friend inspires me every day. He’s always positive no matter what. He’s such a hard worker and an amazing family man. He’s truly my inspiration.

Yes, I have friend who inspires me…to be generous in giving. We just moved a state away, but she insisted to box up too small of clothes and send them to us for our daughter. Do you know what a blessing a big box of clothes and pajamas is? HUGE. She inspires me and so thankful for good friends!

This past Tuesday we went in for our first prenatal appointment at 10w6d and found a baby with no heartbeat. This morning I had a D&C. My friend Laura has uplifted and inspired and encouraged me all week; she lost a son at 22 weeks last year and the way that she has clung to God and grown closer to Him through her loss has helped me immensely to get through these awful days. I will get through this, I will grow in it, and a tiny pair of leggings (and precious fox bag) would help me hold onto my hope that I will become pregnant again and carry a sweet baby to term next time.
My Premier Designs “family” inspire me to work harder!

I’m impressed with how well she juggles everything and still keeps a smile on her face and is such a sweet and giving person. :)
I had a really hard struggle with a colicky baby for many months. This sounds so ridiculous but all I wanted was someone who sympathized with me, and told me all of what I was experiencing was challenging. I felt like a big wimp.

She is a blessing in my life.
