Lucky number 7! Well, I don't really believe in "luck," but I sure do feel blessed to be celebrating 7 years of Dressie Jessie Smocking!

Hello! I've never been more grateful to add a year under my belt. I won't lie...year 5 to year 6 was a hard one.

What a year 2020 has been! Like many of you, our family has faced challenges due to the worldwide pandemic, but rather than list out all of our struggles, I want to share with you one of my biggest blessings of 2020.

I could have never imagined that celebrating 5 years of Dressie Jessie Smocking would occur during the middle of a worldwide pandemic, but here we are. It's emotional in so many ways.

Hello, friends! I've been writing this blog in my mind for about a week, contemplating what I want to say and the best way to say it.

Happy February, Friends! I've always loved this month...my birthday, Valentine's Day, hopefully a few surprise snow days...all things that make me smile. :)

Shortly after Dressie Jessie Smocking began, my eyes and heart became open to the beauty of international adoption. My life has been blessed beyond measure as I watch this community of families open their hearts and homes to orphans around the world. (And to me, that's what they are...a community. The love and support they show one another is the most beautiful thing. It truly is).

Dressie Jessie Smocking began in May 2015 as a small idea based on a big dream. I had no idea what was in store, and when I look at where we are today I am completely humbled and grateful. Not only do I get to do what I love, but Dressie Jessie Smocking has allowed me to connect with people across the world in ways I would have never imagined.
