First of all, a big happy birthday to my sister Lauren. To know Lauren is to know one of the sweetest, kindest, and most fun people in the world (not to mention beautiful, genuine and the BEST Mama and Aunt...), and I feel very fortunate that she's not just my sister but my best friend too. I really feel like I won the sister lottery and I thank my lucky stars everyday for her! Laur, I hope you have the most wonderful day and enjoy your date night with Abe. Happy birthday, sissy boo!
And secondly, happy weekend! I'm currently in Seattle celebrating a friend's son's first birthday (follow along with me here), so I scheduled this to post today, back on Wednesday. I hope you enjoy the links, and have the most wonderful weekend!
Goatmilk NYC send the boys some of the sofest, nicest items and I wanted to share a bit about them here. Are you familiar with the brand? It's based in New York, and they produce some really fantastic, European-inspired organic cotton kid's pajamas and underwear. I'm in love with it all, but especially the stripes! Check 'em out- they're the makers of the cute onesie Charlie wore in yesterday's post and since receiving our little package I'm hooked!
