30 Days of Thankful - Day 27-29

Day 27: For Zutano
Zutano is the best baby clothing company, hands-down.  Not only is their stuff wicked cute but it lasts forever!  Gus spent the first 6 months of his life in the same 4 Zutano hats and they still look great on the girls, which is saying a lot since Gus spit up on them constantly.  When life is crazy as a new parent, and it definitely is with twins, it's so nice to have a few trusty outfits that you can count on.  It's especially nice since Zutano is a small Vermont company and you know how much we love supporting small companies, especially from Vermont.  Thanks, Zutano!

After wearing their brother's pj's for the past 5.5 months, the girls were rewarded with their own "girlie" hats.

Day 28:For my amazing patient partner, Nicole
In the coming months, I will be posting much more of this amazing woman's story but I wanted to recognize her awesomeness and how thankful I am for having her in my life.  Basically, she was chugging along with college life when she heard those three awful words that are a reoccurring theme on this blog, "you have cancer."  Specifically, Nicole was diagnosed with stage 4B Hodgkin Lymphoma, the worst kind of HD out there.  I met Nicole through the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge program and we quickly hit it off.  Over the past year, she continues to blow me away with her maturity and composure.  For example, she doesn't think much of the fact that she was still getting radiation, continuing to pursue her college degree, and helping bring her little sister in for dialysis. Oh yeah... and she has a great personality.  In summary, she's my inspiration! Keep an eye peeled for her whole story, coming soon!  

Day 29: For Preschool "Dance Recitals"
