A single moment captured…
a glimpse into our sometimes peaceful, but often delightfully crazy & blessed lives.
Peekaboo Bottoms, an online Niagara-based natural parenting store and baby boutique is celebrating 5 YEARS in business!! Kim and I have both shopped at this awesome store and are very excited to announce that we’re joining forces with Amy during her HUGE 5th Anniversary Celebration by offering a $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE to her awesome online shop!
I would make this a tutorial, but A) it is simple and B) chaos ensued when this was created this afternoon! I had the best of intentions but we ended up going to several stores to find a frame that would work and by the time we arrived at home life was a bit crazy. Not surprising really!

We LOVED them. Continue reading
