we first found out about jen gotch through blogger bri emery of designlovefest. later we followed jen on instagram and quickly became obsessed. jen gotch is the woman behind ban.do! for those of you who have not yet been blessed with the pleasure of hearing about ban.do, it is a gorgeous, spunky gift and fashion accessory shop. you need to check it out!! not only is jen a social media queen, but her snapchat (username: jengotch) stories are the funniest thing. seriously, you need to follow her. also, go look through jen’s website as it is officially the coolest and most creative personal website we have ever seen.

today, our very own jane finished her first ever marathon!!! running 26.2 miles is something that takes both an incredible amount of dedication and strength (not that i, laura, would know hahah). i am so very proud of jane for having goals and not letting the busyness of life and sports, and a foot injury, get in the way. i felt truly inspired seeing her smiling at mile 8! i feel so blessed to know this awesome, creative, strong girl and to share a corner of the internet together.
jane, way to go. i am so proud of you.
