t minus ten days (and counting)

pure craziness going on over here, but i wanted to pop in and share a few photos of two people very dear to me: my mum and dad.











also, if you're in need of a few last minute gifts, kindly consider supporting independent artisans at etsy. a few of my favorite handmade finds are kris's personalized chenille bibs and thatiana's silk dupioni headpieces.

on another note, i've been learning a bit about enslaved people; the statistics on current slavery--27 million slaves, which is more than at any other point in history--are appalling. consider purchasing a handmade item from a survivor of sex trafficking, such as this silver dragonfly bracelet, or this rose quartz bracelet, or any of these intricate jewelry pieces.

learn more about modern day slavery at freetheslaves.net.

have a blessed week.

You have good-looking parents - but of course :)

We had an amazing speaker at our womens' conference this year, Christine Caine, who has put slavery as one of the top priorities of her ministry. You can go read about her work here:
