A few weeks back, Robyn from She Makes Hats emailed me asking if she could, as part of her 10,000 hats for 10,000 people project, make hats for our entire posse. (Of course I said yes. Hats are the best.) So. Robyn sent us a link to her shop and the kids picked out their colors and styles and it was all very fun and exciting for all of us. And fun. And exciting. A week later, the hats arrived and it was like Christmas up in here. Everyone LOVED their hats and loved knowing they were part of this huge amazing project. The monkey and the monster (pictured above on Bo and Revi) were particularly incredible even though I still have no clue which hat goes with which babe.
You can read more about Robyn's 10,000 Hats project here but I wanted to share this passage, here, because it was particularly inspiring to me.
When Bo and Revi were in the NICU the only hats they wore were hand-knit by strangers and I loved that. I loved that the hands that knitted the hats (I will keep forever) were doing so with love and selflessness. It made me feel so blessed to live in a world where that was possible.
I feel the same way about Robyn and what she's doing -- creating life goals that are as self-fulfilling as they are selfless. How cool is that? (The coolest.)
