    I loved and have saved everything all of my kids made using their hand prints. This apron is so precious. Any mom would absolutely love it.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is adorable! How cute would it be to have all your hand prints and the year on the apron. I think kids would love that.

    I like your SLC temple too on your blog. ;) Got married there 5 years ago and it’s gorgeous.
