Freshly Picked + Dia de los Muertos

Freshly Picked + Dia de los Muertos

Hello amigos! Happy Monday! I hope you had a beautiful weekend. Team Mendez went to the San Diego Zoo on Sunday. I'll be sharing more about our trip later this week. Stay tuned!

Until then, check out one of my favorite small shop's newest release: Mr. + Mrs. Bones moccasins for littles.  

Aren't they adorable? I've talked before about how important supporting small business is to me. What's more, supporting small businesses that give you an opportunity to express yourself and your baby's creativity + culture is even more important to me.

That said, one of my favorite traditions of all time is running Coachella's annual Run With Los Muertos 5K. I had to sit out of last year's on account of having just given birth a couple months prior (How do brand new moms run full marathons. How.)

This year, I AM BACK! I have been very intentional about staying active (What up 6:00PM Spin!), so I know I can do it. I am looking forward to running alongside him this fall!

Even though I doubt Ximena will sit through a calavera face painting session, you better believe she will be rocking these babies to make up for it. I can't wait to talk to Ximena about the meaning of Dia de los Muertos when she's older. I can't wait to build an altar with her, honoring loved ones that have passed. I want her to be immersed in tradition, color, and culture. I want her to celebrate life always. 

Which would you choose? Mr. Bones is available and ready to ship now. Mrs. Bones is ready to order and will ship September 30th! Go to Freshly Picked now to grab yours before they run out of these LIMITED EDITION moccasins today!
