If you've been following our journey for a while, you'll know that I love to share about the good things people do for this world and how I am inspired by them. My friend @mommasohn is one of these people. She along with @mariasbag created this line of beautiful Guatemalan "super diaper bags" to support Cambiando Vidas, a school in #Guatemala that provides life changing programs for mothers and their children. It's an amazing thing they're doing and this bag is now my go to diaper bag when I'm a little dressed up! And yes Allen sometimes wears it too! 😄 Go check them out and make a positive difference! #weavingchange

Just wait for it. 😅 #toughgirl #allsmiles

We loved having imaginative play this morning at @amagicforest, thanks to our friend @mommasohn. So glad we got to finally get together! Watch Stories to see more of this beautiful place 👆🏼 #waldorfeducation

Hope this gives you life like it did for me. 😆

We got to go to #Disneyland together as a family and boy it was exhausting! I had to take a nap haha! Watch for more on our YouTube Channel. [Link is in the bio]

Been trying to add a page here and there to Joey's "Story Of You" book from @artifactuprising every day as Jo naps and the memories are flooding back. I've been tearing up and laughing thinking of all the memories Allen and I shared with Joey this past year of her life. So thankful to be her parents and hope she'll read this book one day and know how much we cherish her. #artifactuprising #babybook

Today’s #JoeyWorldProject costume was sent from our new friends Alona and Melania from #Ukraine. 🇺🇦 This makes the second costume from Ukraine! It is a little different from the other Ukrainian dress that Joey wore previously This one has a floral wreath or vinok on her head which Alona wrote symbolizes the sun which rises as well as happiness, peace, power, chastity, youth, glory and holiness. It is often made up of an assortment of flowers, leaves, fruits, and even twigs. I found out something new about the #vyshyvanka (embroidered top). History shows that the vyshyvanka was used as a talisman to protect the person wearing it and also to tell a story. Embroidery was used in vulnerable places on the garment where evil spirits could potentially enter the body: along the neckline, cuffs, shoulders, back and hem. The skirt-like belt that Joey is wearing is called a zapaska and it was a symbol of fertility for girls. Love that each country has various types of traditional wear. Thank you so much Alona for sending this beautiful outfit our way!

She makes my heart saur. She has me raptor 'round her finger.

In the secret, in the quiet place
In the stillness You are there.

Poofy dresses are always fun. ⭐️

This beautiful traditional dress and headscarf is from our new friend Noor from #Kuwait! 🇰🇼 This colorful Kuwaiti dress or “thobe” is made of different types of fabrics such as silk, cotton, wool and linen. Most of these fabrics actually come from India! The dress is often characterized by bright colors and is worn frequently during the holidays and weddings. On special occasions, young girls wear a “bokhnaq,” which is a headscarf trimmed with gold sequins and embroidery. I love all the intricate embroidery on this dress. Thank you so much Noor for sending this beautiful piece of Kuwaiti culture to our family and also for sending the custom wooden plaque of Joey’s name in arabic! The writing is so beautiful and we absolutely love it! On a side note, thank you everyone who have written to us wanting to send us traditional wear from your countries. This #JoeyWorldProject has been teaching our family so much about different cultures and traditions that we never learned at school. It's been an honor to do this and I hope this little project somehow brings the world a little closer in love and understanding. 💕
