November Excitement and a New Favourite Brand
Often people complain about time passing by so quickly
But, I’m not about to complain about the leaves starting to fall and the weather becoming colder.
Although I do love summer weather (it’s actually my favourite) and months, I’ve actually been itching for November to get here. So, I’m pretty excited that it’s only two days away.
I’ve been awaiting November for two reasons in particular:
My Dad is coming to visit me at the beginning of the month.
I haven’t seen my Dad since August and he hasn’t been here since June, so I’m really excited for his visit! Eddie and I already have a ton of fun things planned to do with him!
Another exciting visit will be when my Mom comes at the end of November!
Again, it’s been since August since I’ve seen my Mom and she hasn’t been to see me since June, either, so I cannot wait for her to come! Although she is coming for the removal of my four wisdom teeth, I am sure we’ll have a ton of fun girl time ;) I can’t see why having oral surgery would prevent me from shopping with my Mom and going for manicures and pedicures ;) Our traditions will still carry on even if I do have a swollen face.
Other things I’m excited for are:
– Starting a new course at school mid-November. This course will be Symptomology II. So far out of all of the courses I’ve taken, Symptomology I was my favourite, so I’m really excited for the second course.
– Starting to workout at a new gym. Yesterday I started a membership at a new gym. I wasn’t feeling motivated or excited to go to the gym I had been going to for the past 3 years, so I switched gyms and completed my very first workout there yesterday! It was great and I felt comfortable working out there. I’m leaving for there soon, actually, and I love not having that “I rather workout at home” feeling that I had each time leaving for my old gym.
– Cooler weather. Ok, so I’m not excited for snow and freezing cold weather, but cool weather I like and enjoy. I like weather toques and feeling cozy in my jacket, but when the temperatures drop to where my jacket doesn’t make me feel cozy I’m not a fan. Having said that, I just purchased a new toque to keep me warm this winter and I can’t wait to share it with you!
I bought this toque from North by Northwest and it’s my new favourite thing because the brand is absolutely amazing and it’s super cute and comfortable!
The company that made this toque is called Krochet Kids Intl. and it’s incredibly unique!
This is how Krochet Kids Int. started:
“The “Krochet Kids” were what our three founders were called when they started a beanie company while they were in high school. Kohl’s older brother taught them the craft that later became the initial tool used to empower people in Uganda to rise above poverty and forge an innovative model for impacting the world through business.”
Their mission, vision, and values are worth sharing, too:
Empower people to rise above poverty.
To create sustainable economic development programs that support holistic growth of individuals and communities living in poverty.
To inspire the knowledge of a generation about their ability to bring change to a world that is in need.
People: We desire holistic freedom for our people to grow and enrich their lives physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Our Product: We believe in quality, handmade products that not only bring comfort and style but serve as a vehicle for social change.
Love: We believe actions rooted in love bring lasting and powerful change. Our model for love is that of Jesus.”
One of the neatest things about this company is that you actually know how made your article of clothing:
“Every product we make is hand-signed by the person who made it. We encourage you to visit the profile of the woman who made your KKi product, so you can learn her story and how she is being empowered. Write a note of thanks and encouragement to let her know you are rooting her on!”
The woman who made your product signs the tag on the inside and you’re able to connect with her online!
Now if that isn’t amazing, I don’t know what is! :D
Have you come across Krochet Kids Intl. products yet? Would you purchase one now after knowing more about the brand? What are you looking forward to about November?
