Bringing Marlee Home

If you didn't catch our last post, we have launched a NEW product!!  We mentioned a portion of the proceeds of The Payton tee benefitting a family in the process of adopting.  We are so excited for you to get to know them a little better!! 

Meet the Manuel family!

Megan, Myles, Michael, and Maddox

Megan writes a family blog called MandM's where you can find out all about their family, their adoption process, and bringing their little girl, Marlee, home!  Here's a little bit from her latest update:

"... In November of 2014 we found out that our agency we had been with for four years to pursue our Ethiopian adoption was telling us that they felt they were unable to continue processing adoptions from Ethiopia.  They are keeping their program open as long as they can just in case, and our paperwork will stay there until they shut it down, but they told us to move on if we wanted to bring a child home. ... For months after we received the news from Ethiopia we have been grieving our plans and expectations and praying for God to continue to guide us to our child. ... We are compiling all our paperwork right now to adopt a little girl from China with a new agency. aka-starting completely over!! ... Through every bump and twist on the road, God has been with us, faithfully providing what we need, and growing our faith...this is the reward, not a child; but more of Jesus.  ... it is bringing about so much dependance on the Lord, and so much faith growth, and compassion for others who are waiting-especially on children, that I'm glad it's been hard...but I'm ready for a child whenever!" 

(Since her latest post, the Manuel family celebrated the birth of a new little guy, Maddox!!)

Their adoption journey has been a long, hard climb from pursuing adoption from Ethiopia, to domestic adoption, to pursuing adoption from China... Megan shares a portion of Jeremiah 29:11 which says, 

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'"

What a perspective to have as they trust in the Lord's timing!  Knowing God's calling is one thing, but actually living it out is SO hard!  Megan and Michael are a living testimony to faithfully living out God's calling.  They've persevered through many changes in their pursuit to bring Marlee home!  Would you consider sharing in our efforts to support this sweet family?  The Lord has given them a desire minister to the fatherless through adoption, and we couldn't be happier to support their ministry!

Please check out Megan's blog to learn more about bringing Marlee home, purchase The Payton tee, and spread the word to your family and friends!

Thank you, friends!!

New Product Reveal!

Hey there, friends!

We are SO excited to launch a brand new product!  The Payton tee is one that you'll definitely want to check out!

We are proud to bring you a versatile T-shirt that can easily be worn on a night out with friends or with your favorite yoga pants!  Our hand-drawn design is slightly distressed and is printed on a classic V-neck shirt that fits and feels like a well-loved favorite.  We worked with 52Threads to bring you an awesome product!

Along with our new launch, we are excited to come alongside adoptive families and organizations by donating at least 10% of our total sales.  The Payton tee will benefit one of our friend's adoption, and we look forward to sharing a little bit about them soon!

The Payton Tees are available for pre-order so they won't be shipped until mid-August.  BUT.  We PROMISE it will be well worth your wait!!  We'll make an announcement on the blog when your shirts have shipped!  If you're shopping from your computer, click the 'Shop' button in the top left-hand corner.  If you're shopping from your phone, click 'Home' and a drop-down menu will appear with 'Shop' as an option.

THANK YOU so much for supporting our newest endeavor!!

Friends, we are so, so excited for our upcoming Shopping Party!  We are so grateful for the support we received at the Lone Tree Folk Festival.  Y'all are truly the greatest!  Now that we're gearing up for the party, we want to give you a preview of a few of the items we'll be selling!

We are loving that the weather is finally changing so we want to introduce our Blanket Scarf!

Dress is up a little with skinny jeans, a blazer, and ankle wedges.

Stay warm and cozy with a plaid button-up, puffy vest, jeans, and ankle boots.

On the ridiculously warm Mississippi fall day, wear a T-shirt dress, open chambray, and wedges.

There will only be a limited number of every item we sell so don't miss out!  The scarves will sell for $28 and will be a perfect Christmas present!

We look forward to sharing more with y'all!!
