Meet Keri // Litte Big Dreamers

She's cool, she's multi-talented, creative, giving, funny, thoughtful, and a busy little bee. Meet the amazing Keri from Little Big Dreamers! It's been such a joy getting to know this gem of a lady and watching her business grow! I'm happy to show you all of what she's made of and help you get to know this beauty a bit better! First, if you haven't checked out her IG (@littlebigdreamers) or her website, I HIGHLY suggest you do so! She has a lot to offer the little cuties in your life! From cold weather accessories, to leggings, to witty tees, she's got you covered ;) Here's some of our favorites from her!

 Let's start with her soft, stretchy, classic head wrap! I told my daughter as I was tying this polka dotted beauty on her, that I was sure to soon be stealing it! Er borrowing it.

here it's wrapped and tied in simple bow
here I twisted the wrap at the forehead and tied/knotted it in the back.

This time I finished with a knot at the forehead and simply tucked the ends under.

a closer look at the previous look

It's so perfect and wrapped nicely on her 9 year old head. I'm a huge fan of a classic black and white print, but she carries other options as well! I love that It can be worn so many different ways. I'm obsessed with it basically.

Then there's this "awesome-tastic" long sleeved pull over! It's super soft and cozy! Of course he feels extra awesome when he has it on ;) It's perfect for either girls or boys which I love!

This scarf is another favorite! Of course the colors are perfection, but really it's also extremely soft and so easy to put on, my three year old son put it on all by himself. He was so proud of himself and now he feels like such a big boy with his new infinity scarf :) bonus points that it matches his favorite baseball cap! The best part is his big brother and sister can also wear it! It's the perfect fit for any little neck and so so warm!

Now that you've seen some of our personal favs, Let me introduce you to the lovely gal behind this great shop!

Keri and her cutest ever winter fresh fam!

Where did the name, Little Big Dreamers come from? 

To be honest, it just came to me as if I had had it picked all along. I always kinda have the saying "dream big" in the back of my head and I wanted to play on the word "little". Secret, I have thought of changing it because the shop has evolved and changed so much since, but I feel so connected to it:)

What inspired you to start your own business?

Easy, my kids. It's funny, because I couldn't afford to go back to work with the cost of school and daycare (special Ed teachers don't make a lot of money)  and I have always been very ambitious and risky so I took a HUGE leap of faith! 

What is something on your bucket list that you're dying to check off?  

Hmmmm no one has ever asked me that. Crazy huh? Australia! Visiting Australia has always been the ONE place I don't and won't stop begging my husband to take me. Other than that I feel like I've accomplished my dreams when I created 2 amazing lives. 

How would you describe your own style?

Simple! I LIVE in jeans, t shirts and infinity scarves. It's insane how many I have. I don't leave my house without one. I call myself grandma now bc my neck is cold without one on. Ha ha. I just feel like they complete an outfit and are  interchangeable!

What does a typical day look like for you?

Coffee, drop off at school, play, park, library, kid naps, pick up, play, dinner, play, work. And when I say play it mostly means singing and dancing. And many breaks peeping Instagram because I would lie if I told you I didn't check in. 

What advice would you give to someone considering taking the jump and starting their own business?

Research! Do NOT get caught up in what everyone else is doing and believe in your product. The rest will fall into place. And be happy doing it! If you don't like it, don't do it, because it's 24/7 365 days. We live in a "always connected" world. Be prepared!

What is something super quirky/unexpected about you?

Hmmmmmm, I'm obsessed with the show friends. Anyone who knows me knows I watch it at least 2x a day. STILL. I'm goofy. I have a weird vocabulary of silly words that I speak to my kids in. For example, "mooka chathcy" (phonetically spelling haha) and my kids do it too. My older sister does it too -guess it's in the fam.

Yes! The secret nonsense language is awesome! Thanks for sharing a little about yourself and giving us a little peek into your life and your shop! Your not only a hard working mama, you have some great talent and a heart of gold! I'm so looking forward to seeing how much you continue to grow in 2015! I'm so honored I had the chance to showcase some great items of yours and I truly hope everyone reading is inspired by your story and provoked to shop small :)
