Reasons Why I Love Freshly Picked

I am so honored to partner with Freshly Picked. They have been so generous to send a pair of moccasins for Kennedy and allow one of my lucky readers a chance to win a free pair.  You can read more about my giveaway below.  These gorgeous moccasins have been featured in Parenting magazine, IN TOUCH, US Weekly, The Today Show, Ellen, OK magazine, People magazine, Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and more! Freshly Picked moccasins feature a unique design with elastic at the opening. They are easy to put on, take off, and most importantly stay on your child’s foot. Their soft-soled shoes are made with durable leather and are suitable for infants and toddlers. FP moccasins fit true to size and are available in children sizes 1 - 9. 

Keeping Kennedy's feet safe while also giving her feet the room they need to grow properly is important. Soft sole shoes are essential for a growing baby.  Walking barefoot is obviously the best option for your baby, but not always possible. Freshly Picked moccasins are great for both indoor and outdoor use. Since they are a soft sole shoe, they allow your baby’s foot to move freely, and feel the ground as they move.

When you get your FP moccasins one of the first things you will notice is the adorable dust bag they come in. On the dust bag a button is attached so you can rock FP daily! Also in the package came the cutest page of stickers.  You will look at your FP moccasins and see how exquisite they are, every stitch, each cut, they are just perfect and so well made.

Starting today through September 4th (Friday) I will be giving one lucky reader a pair of FP moccasins!  Any color and any size you get to choose.  The giveaway is open to US readers only and the winner will be chosen at random.  You are not eligible if you have won a pair of FP moccasins in the last 60 days.  You need to be following @christina.patricio and @FreshlyPicked on instagram and repost the picture that I posted about the giveaway with the hashtag #FPgiveawaymelons.

We decided to do a photo shoot of Kennedy wearing her new moccasins in one of our cantaloupe growers' fields with some freshly picked melons to show off these gorgeous gold moccasins.

Here are some fun facts about the Freshly Picked company. Susan Petersen is the owner-operator of FP. She started making baby moccasins in 2009 after becoming frustrated by the lack of well-designed baby shoes. Using her second child, Gus, as a mocc-tester, and a bag of scrap leather she picked up at a yard sale, she began experimenting with designs. Working at her kitchen table, on a shoestring budget, Susan persisted through several attempts until she had created a pair of moccasins that not only looked adorable on Gus’ chubby little feet, but stayed on his feet as well.  Money was tight at the time, so in order to earn money to start her business Susan got resourceful. Her brother owns a window installation business and in the summer of 2009 she convinced him to let her keep the old windows that he was removing from the houses. At the end of the summer she took the aluminum window frames to the scrap yard and recycled them.  She made $200 and with that literal sweat equity, she started her business. I am inspired by Susan and what she did to become successful and I love to support hard working mamas!
