sponsor highlight - polkadot posies

You guys have probably heard me go on and on about Polka Dot Posies, one of my absolute favorite places to get bows! I wanted to share a little more about April Bacon - the woman behind the bows.

She's brilliant. All of her items are $3 and less. I'm not even kidding! And the best part, they are REALLY great quality. We have a ton of her bows, and as soon as my stubborn toddler gets out of her phase of hating anything on her head...she will wear them again. And you better believe my newborn will have one on at all times. The bigger the bow, the better the mama. I truly believe it!
