As we embark on the beginning of this new year, I encourage you to take this opportunity as a time for reflection, healing, growing, and re-birth. Welcome the gift of a fresh start as we say goodbye to 2015 and welcome in 2016.
To foster the growth of this humble collection of stories, and to encourage these moments of reflection, I am offering a gift to one of our authors! To remain transparent, I must tell you that in a sense, I am re-gifting this prize. You see, I purchased a Lillebaby Essentials carrier when baby C was only a few days old and very much love it. I also love Lillebaby'sbusiness philosophy, their spirit of giving, support for the mama community, and for their high-quality products. Here is the carrier description, straight from the Lillebaby wesbite:
"When all you need are the essentials, our new Essentials carrier has you covered. This classically constructed 4-position carrier, made from our softest, most durable cotton, is the perfect addition to any baby carrier collection - designed for adventure, crafted with style, and yours to keep on hand, in the car, on the go, wherever you go. Parenthood is a journey - keep the Essentials handy."
