The Kylie Headwrap

So you must be wondering what the title of this post is all about, so I will tell you :) It all started when I searched on Etsy for a headband to cover my ears to keep them protected them from the crazy winds we have here in Kansas. I found the cutest ones, and that was just the beginning!

You see I contacted the seller for a custom order, and she was so incredibly sweet making sure I got exactly what I wanted. In addition to that, Heidi even chatted with me a bit back and forth. You know how when you meet someone or in this case, email, that you just get that feeling that they have a really kind soul? Well, that was the case with my little conversations with Heidi :)

With that said, I shared with her my trials of trying to learn how to knit and how much I like to sew. I even sent her a link to our blog. This is just a snippet of her response after looking through our blog:

I have to tell you I LOVE your blog! I have to say I was very moved and nearly brought to tears.. I couldn't help but smile! Your lil angel is beautiful! And it is written ALL over your blog how MUCH she is loved by you and your husband! It is a beautiful story!!!

It made me smile so much to read this...actually, I am smiling again as I read here :) But it was this next part, that really moved me to tears:

I actually just a few weeks ago completed a purple headwrap (the one with the buttons in the front) that I have been meaning to list and just haven't had the time, and this may sound SO cheesy to you.. but I would like to name it after Kylie. Something like "The Kylie Headwrap - Help Fight Epilepsy". And then for every headwrap that I sell, of this particular listing (color and style), I would like to donate $2.00 to the Epilepsy Foundation.

We just know our little girl is a miracle, and with that we can't help but feel that she will do great things and that God's plans for her are greater than we could ever imagine. So seeing this response, to what started out with me searching for a headband, was just unexpected and very heartwarming. It is through Kylie, our story, and this blog that made a path for us to connect to's almost overwhelming in some way to see how our little girl can touch the hearts of so many.

While Kylie was supposed to be napping today...not so much, because she was singing, and going in and out her closet finding more books to read, and just treasure hunting, and then knocking on her door for me to come so she could show me what she found....a package had arrived!

It was my order from Heidi at Hill n Trees! I absolutely love my headband! I just button it underneath, which really is nice so I don't have to pull it on over my's all in the details :)

You will love this cute 3 strand headband for Kylie...loving the purpleness of it too! She was so excited when I got her out of her room...after not so naptime was show her what came in the mail.

Of course I have pics of Kylie wearing it, because I love to take pics of her, and especially when she is wearing something so incredibly cute!

I am certain we will be seeing more of these headbands in our future...for the both of us!

I really loved the business cards too...from the hand created heart to the scripture on the back...just something I wanted to share with all of you guys. When you find something great, you just want to tell everyone you know about here it is :)

Click here and it will take you directly to Heidi's Etsy site (Hill N Trees), or click on the tab on the blog page and it will take you to The Kylie Headwrap.

As as added incentive, anyone who purchases one of The Kylie Headwraps will have a chance to win a 3 strand headband with flower like the one Kylie is wearing.
