Freshly Picked by Susan Petersen features baby moccasins, totes and apparel. FP baby mocs aren’t just darling– they are molded for comfort and they actually stay on. Zoe is so blissfully happy to bounce around in her soft FP gold mocs and even refers to them as her “jumping shoes”- a necessity for her indoor trampoline. Freshly Picked is sponsoring this giveaway, but all opinions about their moccasins are my own.

Can’t wait? Buy here now for $60

All photos taken during a family brunch at Alto Cinco (definitely recommend the Tofu Scrambler, pictured below). Catch glimpses of Grandpa and Gigi (my parents) with Zoe and Ari. Zoe is wearing the gold moccasins c/o Freshly Picked.

St. Mary’s, GA is home to Embroidery by Melissa, an Etsy shop that specializes in personalized, monogrammed gifts. Melissa is a single mother of 3 boys who happily supports her family by sewing, a skill taught to her by her late mother who passed away from cancer but remains her major inspiration. Follow along with Melissa on Facebook.

She has been recognized by both the Chicago Tribune and The New York Daily News for best children’s book of the year. Enter the comic world of McGuirk and enjoy a laugh while reading to the kids.

HABA is a fantastically thoughtful company that actively takes the worry out of toy selection for the children you love most. Valuing quality and safety above all, they explain, “when we want to bring colors into play we only use solvent-free, water-based stains. This means that toys are totally safe to pass from hand-to-mouth”. Babies, this is your cue to chew!

April Look was born in 2011 to Vaida and Agne of Lithuania. They say, “we feel that handmade has a lasting value that mass production can’t match. April Look believes in the beauty of simplicity.” Natural fibers are the base of each item– the tie featured above is made with linen and cotton.
