Dressie Jessie Smocking Turns 2 and a Giveaway!

May 31, 2017 131 Comments

Dressie Jessie Smocking Turns 2! Reflecting on that pretty much gives me #allthefeels! I really don't even know where to begin because the list of "thank you's" is so long.

I think I will start by thanking my wonderful team that works so hard and with such care. Seriously, I could NOT do what I do without them. Tonya, Brittany, Kaylan, Lindsay, Dawnee....I am so blessed to have you work as part of the Dressie Jessie Smocking team. You are the BEST!

Next, I have to mention Dan, the most friendly and kind U.S.P.S. worker there ever was. He scans hundreds of packages every week...always smiling! I love my little post office in Studley, VA! I also have to mention Keith, my UPS driver. This wonderful man will rework his entire route to deliver my packages early, so we can get a jump start on shipping pre-orders. Not only that, he calls me to let me know he's on his way. The sweetest!

Photographers and bloggers I've partnered with---Jessica, Amber, Lindsey, Jordan, Traci, Andrea...just to name a few. I appreciate your support so much! #thankyou

My family. Where do I even start? My parents and my sisters...I call and talk to them almost daily. They are the most patient people, listening to this idea and that idea. I'm a talker...it helps me think, ha! I don't know what I would do without them. And then there's my husband, Rhett. We will celebrate 22 years of marriage on June 3rd. When the idea of Dressie Jessie Smocking was born, I called him at work, and without the slightest hesitation, he gave me his full support. Owning your own business is a labor of love, and there are many ups and downs. I'm really good at celebrating the "ups," but working through the "downs" is a challenge. He is always there to help me gain perspective, and to encourage me to keep moving forward. I truly could not do it without him.

And then, there are these four...

My children, Nathan, Matt, Andrew and Caroline. Being their mom is my greatest joy.

And finally, you....my wonderful customers. It is not lost on me that without you, there is no Dressie Jessie Smocking. Together, I feel like we share an understanding that is lost on many people...that dressing your children like children is one of life's simple pleasures. See my oldest son there on the right? He heads to Virginia Tech's Engineering School in the fall (I'm so proud my heart could burst!). Well, I recall a special jon-jon he had with an airplane appliqué. I bought him that outfit because he LOVED seeing airplanes fly by and would bend over and throw his arms out, pretending to be a plane (the cutest!). That little outfit...it helps me remember...and it makes my heart smile. #simplejoys

Please know how much I appreciate each of you. Every like and share on social media, every email and private message, every order, no matter how big or how small...I am grateful. Truly, truly grateful.

And now, to celebrate Dressie Jessie Smocking turning 2...I'm giving away TWO free outfits of the winner's choice! To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment below. That's it! The winner will be announced Friday, June 2nd, so be sure to check back for the announcement! 

Thank you all for your continued support!

XOXO, Jessie 

UPDATE--Congratulations to Katie Manning! You are the winner! I've emailed you!

Two years ago, I happened upon your Instagram page and made my first dressie jessie purchase, the smocked sunflower tie dress. I’ll never forget my girl wearing it for her very first lemonade stand! It is a memory engrained forever in my mind!! Much like that airplane jon jon you mentioned! Since then I’ve only purchased a few things {due to a limited budget}, but each purchase has been beyond worth it and the packages have been shipped quicker than any other place I’ve ordered from {like at Amazon Prime speed!} Most recently your willingness to go above and beyond when I needed the smocked big brother outfit earlier than the preorder ship date was such a blessing! Congratulations on two years of precious clothing! I am one who will dress my babies like babies for as long as I can, and shops like yours make that possible!!

Happy 2nd Anniversary to a Dressie Jessie Smocking! I loved your post and reading about your journey to now is so sweet and inspiring. The love you have for this company truly shows in the products you offer and attention to detail in shipping those products. We recently received our mermaid dress (which we adore and receive tons of compliments on) and I was happy to see that little Dressie Jessie Smocking care instruction card included with our shipment. Some moms don’t know how to properly maintain the care of precious smocked clothes and the little card was the perfect touch! So happy anniversary again and I wish you many many more anniversaries so I can clothe my daughter in the cutest outfits!

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.
