I had the incredible good fortune to work at a wonderful company called Bunnies By the Bay when Patton and I were living in beautiful Anacortes, Washington. If you aren't familiar with Bunnies, they make the most adorable and the absolute softest baby clothes and gifts I have ever seen.
The company has a truly amazing story and is made up of some of the sweetest, extremely creative and most unique people I will probably ever meet.
In addition to learning a ton about how a successful small business works, managing a retail store, working with a group of creative people to come up with terrific designs and having those designs manufactured, Bunnies By the Bay gave me something even more.
I moved from my home in West Chester, PA all the way to a little island north of Seattle after I got married. I didn't know a single person there and my husband spent a lot of time travelling (he was a Naval aviator at the time and gone for months and months at a time). The lovely folks at Bunnies gave me a great series of different jobs during my four years there (they even welcomed Goalie as a member of the team and he loved running around the beautiful old barn of a workshop on Fidalgo Bay). They made my life so much easier, less lonely, and more fun than it otherwise would have been living so far from family and friends. It meant so much more to me than I think any of my Bunny friends will ever know.

I am so excited for Lucy to arrive and can't wait to get her all dolled up in adorable creations from Bunnies By the Bay, each of them made with lots of love and glad dreams.
