So, most of you have probably not heard much about the person behind the hats so here's a little history for you.
I am the eleventh child of a wonderfully close family, born in Costa Rica, Central America. My parents moved to Manitoba Canada when I was four years old so this feels like home to me. My parents had 12 children (6 boys and 6 girls) and I admire them so much! If I turn out to be anything like my mom I will be so grateful. The last five in the family were girls so you can imagine how much fun we have together. My sisters are truly my best friends.
I got married to the love of my life (one year after we met) and we will be celebrating 8 years of marriage this June. We have three children and one on the way. We're anticipating his/her arrival mid July so some excitement coming our way shortly!
Favourite passtimes for me are gardening, working out (ran my first 1/2 marathon last year), sipping coffee with sisters, friends, or husband. Crocheting of course is fun too :-)
My husband grew up on a cattle farm and that's his passion. I enjoy living in the country with him and believe it's a wonderful place to raise a family!
My sister Rosie, who is an amazing photographer, has been encouraging me for some time to put my interest in crafting to use by creating photo props for her so I give her a lot of credit for the opening of my Etsy shop. You can see what she does here: www.simplyrosiephotography.ca
I have already met some amazing people and look forward to meeting many more!
So there you have it. A bit of me.
