Here Comes the Sun ... and a Giveaway!
When somebody names their company “January Moon” its safe to assume that they might get a wee bit excited about historic celestial events :)
In just a few days, we’re going to experience a total eclipse here in Tennessee. The moon, earth, and sun are going to align completely and for a moment all of us will look up and see something magical. We will get to stand together in awe, gather goose bumps on our arms, and let Mother Nature remind us, humbly of course, of our smallness in this vast, mysterious universe.
As parents and caregivers, we strive to create these singular experiences for our children often. We try to show them new things, help them find the extraordinary on the most ordinary of days, and urge them to walk slowly through childhood, though so often what they yearn for is to grow up. We seek out and protect these moments of adventure so fiercely because we know, even as they groan up the hill on the hike, splash their sister in the river, or refuse to look through the telescope at Orion’s belt unless they get an extra marshmallow, that these years are fleeting. There isn’t necessarily less to marvel at as you grow older, but it can become a difficult thing to remember to do.
On August 21 2017, we will get to sit in childhood alongside our little ones. We will get a peek at the world through their wide, twinkling eyes and feel our own lips curl into awestruck smiles just as theirs will. I am so excited to share this special day with my family and with all of you.
In order to bring a little extra stardust to this already enchanting occasion, we’ve teamed up with some of our favorite mama maker friends to build a Total Eclipse Bundle, which we’ll be giving away to one of our wonderful instagram followers this coming week. Included will be Lilla Barn’s stunning Dolman Dress in Moons, size 5T, a perfectly tot-sized Xinh & Co. basket in Noir Stripes, a set of Hello Shiso twinkle star clips so adorable you’ll want to borrow them from your kiddo, and our very own January Moon Black Mini Necklace.
Entries begin this Tuesday August 14th at 12pm CST and close Sunday August 20th at 11:59pm CST. Follow us on instagram to find out how you can win!
Wishing you all clear skies and full hearts!
