ADDISON’S FAVORITE SHOES (& A GIVEAWAY!)

this post is sponsored by freshly picked but all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. way back when i pictured myself having kids, i pictured boys. i saw little mudprints and stained shirts and hunting and fishing everything all over our house. not that i necessarily wanted the hunting and fishing anything but i just figured it would be the cards that god would give me. and i was okay with that. now that…
