He's here!

He's here! 

Rowan Nathaniel Westrate was born to us at 10:04pm on June 24, 2013! We are overflowing with blessing and joy! Our friend Kari Wierenga from Zander and Breck Photography did a lifestyle shoot for us! 

(Side Note: If you live in the greater Grand Rapids, MI area she is a phenomenal photographer!)
(Side Note 2: Her daughter is the cutesy who models off the fun bloomers in the shop too)

Here are some of the snap shots she captured from our lifestyle shoot with Rowan! 

 Wrestle time with daddy is a daily must. 

 Rowan about had it by now with the pics; he did a great job for 3 hours!

 Here Rowan is modeling off one of our cardigan onesies! 

 So tired from all of the attention :)


Nate got home just in time to grab some shots of him with Rowan. These are priceless.

Life is definitely crazy beautiful right now! 
The shop is now in full swing again and we are on a way to the fall line soon! 

Never too busy to take some time for snuggles though. :)

Have a blessed Sunday!
And remember, HIS mercies are NEW every morning, GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS.

Fall2012 ALIVE!

Is it really fall already? I can't believe it! It was a crazy summer, flew by (when doesn't it. We had the priveldege to be invited to be in a Septemberfest Craft show alongside our friends at Uniquelee You. We shared a booth together and it was a blast! We also will be joining them at a craft show in November. 
The fall is coming, it's here as is our Fall2012 line! We had the honor to work with Kari from Zander&Breck Photography to photograph some of these lovely images! (I couldn't just pick 5 that'd be too hard!:))

The next four images are of the new stretchy bands with detachable handmade silk flowers. Both bands and silk flowers come in a plethora of colors! So excited about these!

 Close up of the handmade silk flower which is attached to a sturdy thick clip that can be worn on a necklace, shirt, cardigan, hair, clutch, purse, or other headbands; the possibilities are endless! 

 Looks so cute on!

Here are some vintage inspired little dainty boots! With pearl buttons lined down the side and a delicate crocheted strip framing the top!

There is currently a simple contest on our facebook page to enter to win a 15% off coupon for the new Fall2012!

The last preview is a pair of the Holiday2012 collection but will be debut early with Fall2012 because they are so versatile! These are some of our favorite ones yet! The warmness of the fur and the delicate deep red.

Mission Kitindi


    Mission Kitindi. Simply Anandi is going to donate 100% of all sales towards Mission Kitindi. This July a handful of youth and youth leaders are going to Kitindi in Eastern Congo for three weeks. Some of these youth are in need of funds because they don't have the means to go but feel they are called to go and help serve the less fortunate. Simply Anandi would like to do whatever they can to help these students make way to the Congo and make a difference! From now on until the end of July 100% of all the earnings from YOUR purchases will go to help send these students and leaders out to the Congo! Join with us to help Mission Kitindi! 
Don't want to purchase anything? You can donate whatever amount you desire to give by clicking donate button.  
(All donating done through the blog is done through paypal.)


Here is a more detailed look at what they will be doing from one of the leaders going:

   Specifically we will be serving in a few different areas; first we will be building desks for an elementary school that is majorly lacking desks for their students.  Secondly we will be performing 4 Christ-centered skits that will allow us to hurdle the biggest barrier of communication, which is the language.  Lastly we will be the hands and feet of Jesus wherever we can.  We will have a guide who grew up in the Congo, one of the main teaching pastors at our church, who will be able to show us the ropes and open up plenty of opportunities for service.  
        Our small group is passionate about bringing the gospel in spirit and truth.  We want to be wise steward of the word of God that our Father has given us.  Your prayers are greatly coveted during this time of preparation and planning.  We are striving to stay in the center of His will.  As a group we are spending a lot of time seeking His face, and growing closer to Him while getting ready for this trip.  Join us in praying specifically that our hearts would be prepared to serve humbly when we get there, and give every ounce of the glory to our worthy savior Jesus Christ!!  

Grace and peace,

Thank You in advance for your time and gifts; they will benefit little lives in a hurting country.
