sponsor love: GIVEAWAY and interview with Rachel of Goose + Trisser!!!

today's sponsor is not brand new to the blog family. she has been a wonderful sponsor and friend from the beginning of this year, so it's even more of a pleasure for me to feature her today. she is gorgeous and talented! you'll also fall in love with her precious family, especially lil' Bird. so let me step aside so that you can...

meet rachel.


favorite nail polish for spring: 
Essie's Mint Candy Apple
  favorite item in your shop: 
Tie between I can!, because of the empowerment behind it and Sunny Sward, because around these parts I need every reminder of nice weather I can get!

what were you doing at 9:22 am today?
I was cuddling on the couch with my little lady. She wasn't feeling good and I took advantage of the snuggle time since she usually doesn't let me hold her any more, so grown up!


this girl's eye for color is impeccable.

  1. I LOVE Rachel's things, & I've long eyed basically everything from Goose & Trisser! I wonder if "persevere" is too long a word? I might go with plain old "Ohio." Nerdy? Maybe. :)
