Magical Moment 306, "I Tip My Hat to Friendship"

Jenny (left) and I from a million years ago...I think we won a cake walk?

I'm proud to say that I've been able to hold onto a few friendships for 20 plus years (I'm 27). One of those friends is Jenny. We've managed to stay in touch despite school changes as children, out of state moves as teenagers, marriages as adults, and major life decisions ever since. 

I was thrilled to learn a few years ago, that she began creating the most charming headbands, inspired by her adorable young daughter, Haley. Soon her variety and unique style expanded to hats as well and she began a successful business selling them, Haley's Headbands. I often find myself browsing through photos of her creations, completely delighted and picking out my favorites. She takes her own photos for most of the advertisements as well, which I find equally beautiful:


Today I came home to find a package on my doorstep. I tore it open with excitement when I saw the return address, Haley's Headbands, and inside I found the 2 most BEAUTIFUL hats created especially for ME! I put each one on and stared with admiration in the mirror, and I can honestly say that these are better than anything I would find in any department store or boutique. I've always known that holding on to dear friendships would bring amazing rewards. I just never knew that one of those rewards would be amazing hats!

Take a look at her website, or "like" her on facebook, where she often holds free give-aways:
