Happy Halloween!

Was at a Halloween party last night when the photo above appeared on my blackberry. I was beyond excited to get it. Her name is Atia and she is a 3 year old little girl who has stolen our heart. She has stolen a lot of peoples hearts! She's wearing the smallest necklace that we've ever made for anyone and what an honor it was to do so!

All photos by Laura Lutarewych

Atia has been battling leukemia and is receiving chemotherapy. She is so brave and such a natural born fighter! Last year she was too sick to go trick or treating so she was SO excited to dress up in her Foofa from Yo Gabba Gabba costume to participate in all the fun this weekend. Her amazing mama, Laura Lutarewych posted this photo for all of Atia's fans to see on Twitter. Does she melt your heart or what?!

Laura and Atia

I learned about Atia through our lovely and divine Dina Manzo, formerly of the Real Housewives Of New Jersey and founder of the charity Project Ladybug. This awesome charity is specifically for children battling cancer and their families. Atia is Chicago's Ladybug.

If you would like to learn more about Atia's journey or her mama, Laura...Did I mention that Laura is a cancer survivor??? You can read all abut them on Laura's blog by clicking here. If you would like to learn more about Project Ladybug, you can do so by clicking here.

Happy Halloween to all of you! We say Atia wins this year for best costume!!! xo
