from the very bottom of my heart, i can’t thank you enough for the kind words and feedback you have shared with us since we announced the launch of our family luggage collection at target earlier this week. thank you! thank you!!!! i tell josh all the time, that we truly have the best followers and readers in all the land, so many of you who feel like legit friends i could sit across the table from for hours, and i mean it! after working on a specific project for so long, and also having to keep it under wraps during that time, it just felt so good to finally say, “it’s here!” you never know how something may be received, and so to have felt that love from you straight away, it just meant everything.
i truly hope that those of you who bring a few of these luggage pieces along on your next adventures find them to be everything you hoped for. and that they take away some of the little stresses traveling with kiddos sometimes entail so you can focus on the good stuff…. the making memories part, the having a new adventure part, the being with your people and exploring, discovering and trying new things part…. basically, all the parts that are meant to be focused on! and all the parts that count.
love you guys so much. i can’t believe some of you have been in this space with me for over ten years! the landscape of blogging and all things online has changed so much since those first few posts, and i never imagined how it would evolve and bring the sorts of opportunities it has for me and my family along the way, but we couldn’t do any of it without you, so thank you for being here and being wonderful.
sharing a few photos today from when we received the very final products in early january. i couldn’t wipe the smile off my face as conrad and i hauled the majority of the pieces onto my bed and started going through everything. eleanor and samson were the ones who firmly stated they wanted dragon wings on the kids backpack, but conrad was the one who roared all morning when he put the final backpack on and realized he was basically a dragon! we had a lot of fun together packing up his little backpack while the older kids were at school for an upcoming trip to DC!
if you missed it, i talk about the collection more in depth in this post, and i highlighted a bunch of videos on the profile page of my instagram account where josh and i walk through each piece in the collection.
you can now shop all pieces online right here! as well as at all target stores nationwide! (although we have heard that several items have sold out at some stores, so hurry if you want to check them out in person. the collection will sold at target for only a couple of months. or until it sells out.)
have a great weekend, friends! thank you so much, again.
