So Excited To Share Our Tanks and Tees With You!!

We are SUPER excited to show you our tanks and t-shirts we are selling for our adoption!!!!  ALL proceeds go directly to our adoption fund!!

We LOVE them and hope you like them as much as we do!!

Why the quote about surfing?!?

Although we are BEYOND grateful for adoption, let’s be honest….adoption is HARD.  It’s uncomfortable, it’s risky, and it’s scary. It’s about giving up control and just surrendering to the process (the HARDEST part for me personally).  We’ve learned that we can be knocked over by these waves of emotions brought on by adoption OR we can learn to adapt, let go, and ride out that wave so we can see the BEAUTY that adoption offers as well.

So now you know :)…..here is how to order!!!

These are VERY soft Bella Triblend unisex t-shirts and ladies flowy tanks!! The t-shirts are offered in Sunset or Blue Tri-Blend, for adults sizes XS-3XL. The flowy racerback tanks are offered in Sunset and Denim Slub for ladies sizes  XS-2XL. These are PRE-ORDER only! Order will close on September 24th and all orders will ship or be available for pick up the first 2 weeks of October.  Each shirt is $22 and we will ship for $4 for first shirt add $1 per shirt after that (to same address).

Message us to place your order and be sure to state STYLE, COLOR, SIZE, QUANTITY and YOUR EMAIL. I will send you an invoice via PayPal OR if you are local you can pay via cash or check in person!


Puzzle Fundraiser Update!

Okay, so there are TWO things we know for sure!

1 – We are absolutely horrible at putting puzzles together.  It may or may not have taken us 5 hours to put our complete puzzle together. And by “us”, I mean Bill…I had to walk away after an hour or so.   Also, as a pointer to others, if you plan on making a puzzle, make sure it’s colorful and has color on every piece.  All white pieces and pieces with black swipes about sent us over the edge!!

Aaaannnd Michelle OUT!

2 – More importantly….We have some AH-MAZING friends and family!!! No, seriously, you guys are the best!!   It’s so cool to start writing the names of our friends and family on the back side of the pieces and seeing how everyone becomes intertwined and connected together.  Although a lot of you may not know each other, you are ALL forever connected through our adoption story…how cool is that!?!? Pretty flippin’ cool if you ask me!

Adoption Puzzle Fundraiser
Do you see your name?? Everyone coming together as one!

We still have about 150 pieces left to complete our puzzle, so it’s not too late to become a part of our story!  And if you have no idea what I’m talking about, no worries, you just missed our previous post, so I have the details for you here!

We had a beautiful watercolor painting done by my sister made into a puzzle. Each piece will represent someone who donated to help us on our journey! Each puzzle piece represents a $25 donation. You may want to be represented on 1 piece of our puzzle or many pieces! Your name will be written on the back of each piece that you represent. Once the puzzle is finished it will be framed in a double sided glass frame and hung in our nursery. It will forever be a reminder of who was part of our journey with us! To be a part of this fundraiser you can donate through our YouCaring (now GoFundme) link or the PayPal link on the right side of our blog or you can contact me directly! Even if you aren’t able to donate, we would LOVE it if you could share!!

xoxo – Michelle & Bill
