So I turn 27 years old in a couple week. That sounds really old to me, like I've officially entered 'real adult' territory. I still get the pity stares, the "is he yours?" comments, and little old ladies patting me on the back and saying "your doing such a good job honey," so I'm pretty sure I still look sort of like a teen mom*, but no--I'm dangerously close to the big 3-0!
Anyway, for my birthday this year I am teaming up with my friend Tiffany to raise money for Faces of Loss by hosting a Stella and Dot online 'trunk show.' Tiffany lost her son Julius to SIDS almost two years ago, and I got to meet her last summer when she make a visit to Minneapolis. We now both have babies close to the same age (her daughter Juliana is 6 months old). She recently became a Stella and Dot stylist and came up with the idea for this fundraiser; 50% of the sales proceeds will go to Faces!
S&D has some super cute jewelry, but my favorite is their charm line. I can't wait to design a charm necklace that represents both of my babies (and I may even get the paw charm for my dog-babies too!) Here's Tiffany's as an example:
You can shop using this link and your purchase will go towards the Faces fundraiser: http://www.stelladot.com/ts/hvmi5
Thanks for checking it out! I really appreciate the support!
Okay, I have another post I need to pump out before El wakes up so I'll be back shortly :)
Love you all!
*Random funny story: A few weeks ago I was at the beach with Elliot, and the lifeguard, who was maybe 18 years old was hanging around, kind of hitting on me. Finally I said, "well I need to feed him now," (hint hint--go away!), and he kept standing over us. So then I said, "Like breastfeed him." He got this shocked look on his face and mumbled something about how he hoped we enjoyed our day and stumbled off. Pretty sure he thought I was the nanny!
