Dream Big.

God has been giving me those two words a lot recently. We tend to narrow our goals or plans in order to fit into a more confined ,safer, more reachable one. I know I have. But the more I step out and pursue the passions of my heart, the more God shows me just glimpses of a bigger picture. One I can't even begin to imagine myself, or even plan alone. It's all Him. And that's how I always want it to be. All Him. He has plans for us, much bigger than our own.  What does your heart cry for? Don't stop short with your own expectations and plans. 
Dream Big!

I wanted to introduce you to Carina. She and her family are adopting their 4th child. A little girl who will be coming home to them in just a few short weeks. In order to help with some of the cost of the adoption process, Carina has made a few adoption necklaces through her etsy shop, with all the proceeds going toward the adoption. I would love for you to read her story and help bring their baby girl home! Carina is dreaming big and hoping to sell 100 of these necklaces. Would you consider helping her get there? Not only would you be helping them bring a brand new baby girl into their blessed life, but you get to sport a cute necklace too. Which is really a win-win if you ask me!

Hello! I'm Carina and I blog over at a punk, a pumpkin and a peanut.

I am mama to three little rascals, lover of vintage and coffee and chocolate, among other things.

For the last year, my husband and I have been waiting to adopt our fourth baby.

We have two biological boys, and one adopted, and feel so excited to be adding to the sweet chaos that is our every day.

Two weeks ago we got the call that we'd been chosen to adopt a baby girl due this August. 

And we are over the moon.
We know that God is already writing our love story with this little peach
and His hand is so evident in the details.

You can read more about all of that here.

The reality of adoption is that it takes a serious chunk of change to make it happen.
Like $25,000 when all is said and done.
We've saved and saved and had a little pancake breakfast to get the ball rolling,
but we are still well away from that number.
We are not ones to ask for something without offering something in return,
mostly because it makes us feel weird.

I've been making jewelry for my little etsy shop for the last few months and after a lot of thought, I decided to design a few adoption necklaces to help make up some of the difference.

I am dreaming big here: my goal is to sell 100. My dream is 200.
300 would knock our socks off and put a serious dent in that total.

Would you consider helping us out?
Spread the word and buy a necklace (or two)...
you'll be helping us bring our baby home, supporting adoption
and you'll even get something pretty in return!

And please come follow along on this super exciting journey -
it's sure to be an adventure!
