Gauge caught another award-winning motherhood in the moment photo yesterday.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ It has been in the high 60s here all week - unseasonably warm and pretty windy, but we are soaking up as much outside time as we can!

You guys!!! I launched my Memory Monster options in the shop today!

I am so excited to help turn your special memories into monsters. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›โค // There's two listings for available sizes - small/medium and MEGA big!
