i've been saving + storing + hoarding + piling up little gift type goodies over the past couple of months.... unsure what the basketful would turn into. maybe a giveaway, maybe a pile of junk, maybe i'd keep it all for myself [let's be honest].
or maybe.... it needed to be made into an adoption raffle.
because girls, we leave in just two short weeks for taiwan. and in just two short weeks my heart will be overflowing with insane amounts of emotions as i get to physically hold my two youngest children that i have long awaited.
so, i present to you.... a raffle of my favorite things to help bring home two of my favorite people!
and now you can see why i wanted to keep it all to myself, right?! i ordered this gorgeous fair-trade tote from my sweet friend kate & it is stuffed FULL of so many pretty + lovely things! here's a little peek at what's included in this weekend's raffle...
