Glad you found us! 

I don't ski, I don't drink craft beer and I don't have a dog, but by golly I am a real Colorado native girl.  So now you can still believe in unicorns!  Here's my ode to motherhood, you know because all of us bloggers write like we were the first, only and last mama out there.

First Snow

First Snow

Being a Coloradoan means having a basket full of outerwear at the ready. Beanies, scarves, knit headbands, gloves, mittens, leg warmers...

Of course, just because you have a basket full already doesn't mean you can stop the snowbird from eyeing new colors, new styles, different weights of the knit stuff. Even better, I have found a company that fills the cozy component AND supports an incredible charity, this company being Worn for Peace. Now that I have two babies whose heads need covering as well, I'll have to rethink the storage situation of all this winter garb as the aforementioned basket is now overflowing.

These are our new favorite head warmers from Worn, and they came just in time for the first snow of the season which flew yesterday afternoon! After hubby got home from work we threw on our socks and shoes, grabbed our warmies for our noggins and snapped a couple pics in the fresh stuff before heading to Sprouts for a stock pile of groceries. We are hunkering down and staying IN this week with single digit temps in Denver. This frigid weather came just as I was thinking to myself that I need to do a little more NOTHING. Momma confession: Remy and I may or may not have been cuddled under a fleece blankie on the couch watching a little tube today. We also rolled around the carpet and colored, oh and Baba brought home huge sheets of pink butcher paper and we introduced her to markers! WHY do they always go for the black one?!

My head wrap, Remy's pom pom hat and Arlo's bear hat are available at Worn for Peace. These pieces are all handmade in Fort Worth, Texas and initialed to "symbolize the story and survival of the woman whose beautiful handwork you are supporting." The women who make these pieces have found themselves in America living as refugees and escaping strife in their, "war-torn and poverty-stricken homelands." The proceeds from the sales of Worn for Peace go directly back to Catholic Charities to fund programs for these women such as, "setting up apartments, English as a Second Language classes, enrolling children in schools, and help with integration into the American employment system."

This especially hits home with all of the happenings as of late in Syria. Please visit their website and make a purchase today. You can also enter the raffle below for a chance to win a $25 gift card. These would also make wonderful holiday gifts as they carry a strong mission; to support women and help them gain independence.

(Arlo's blue and pink blanket was handmade and gifted by her aunt Amanda.)
