bits & pieces

 {spring has sprung}

Happy Friday!  This week really flew right by - beautiful weather and lots of work to do.  Today is the last day of my first trimester!  Hard to believe I am a third of the way through my pregnancy.  I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

love for lily

Hi Friends!  I just wanted to take a moment to share this lovely cause with all of you.  Love for Lily is an organization started by one of my friends and her husband after the loss of their sweet daughter Lily.  They are doing such beautiful and selfless thing in memory of Lily and I know they will help so many others in her memory!  Please take some time to read about the organization and event.  And, of course, attend or donate if you can - if not please help spread the word!

"Love for Lily is the  non-profit we started in honor of our sweet Lily.  Love for Lily provides support to families with babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).  We are introducing Moms groups to NICUs in the Denver Metro area beginning with the University of Colorado Hospital. Our grant program will open for applications in October of 2012, providing grants to families with health insurance who have remaining bills from care in a NICU of greater than $100,000."

Read the whole store here.

springing forward

Spring is in the air, and I am loving it!  I was getting a little sick of boots and sweaters, so I have been happy to start pulling some new spring-ish items out of my closet over the past week.  I am not showing just yet, but I do find leggings to be a bit more comfy than jeans!  Trying my best to stay comfortable and stylish.  And, I am loving my new Tom's ballet flats!  So fun and they come it a ton of different colors!

7. lucky brand, crossbody convertible bag
9. chan luu, wrap bracelet

Have a lovely day!
