Are you ready to start the holiday season a little bit early this year? 

Like every year, this year I'll be sharing my favorite products to give and receive as well as offering special discounts and giving away some awesome items. We are kicking things off with one of my favorite baby/toddler products - Freshly Picked moccasins.


I'm sure you are familiar with this company, but if you are not, here's a little bit about them - Working from her kitchen table, Susan Petersen started making baby moccasins five years ago.  After several attempts, Susan develop the perfect soft-sole leather shoes that not only looked super cute, but most importantly - stayed on. Susan's hard work has paid off, and today Freshly Picked is a beloved brand with fans worldwide.
  • Freshly Picked moccasins are hand made in the USA from 100% genuine leather
  • They feature a unique design with elastic at the opening that allows the shoes to be put on and taken off easily while staying on your child's foot whenever they need to
