a package of books

reading plays a big role in our house. every morning, the first thing the boys do is grab a book right away. the  morning hours are spent wandering through forests, saying good bye to the moon, or counting along with mickey. then afternoon quiet time roops around and once again, we find ourselves getting lost in books. and of course there’s the nightly bedtime routine, bedtime stories. we love that the boys are so into books. not only is it helping them fundamentally, but i pray that it helps them continue that love for reading far into their older years.

the other day, the boys each had a package from lillypost waiting for them on our doorstep. and i wish i could bottle up their expressions on those tiny faces to remember every perfect detail in that moment for the rest of my life. finley sat so patiently on the bed gazing at his and hayden hugged his package so tight. and the sounds. those squeals of pure excitements and the “oh my gosh!” es. that’s the good stuff, guys.


lillypost is a monthly subscription book service providing books for littles, which is perfect for us because we are always looking for new favorites. i mean, mama can only read the same book so many times in a row!

the board book box is perfect for finley [ages 0-2] and the picture book box is just right for hayden [ages 3+].  each box is filled with beautifully wrapped books, making it the perfect happy mail for children. unpackaging is half the fun! subscriptions are offered in 1, 3, 6, and 12 months and start at just $26. lilypost will then also donate one new book for every single box shipped to a charity focused on advancing children’s literacy, such as project night night and the children’s book bank.

and i am so excited to tell you that lily post is so graciously offering you all ten percent off your first 3, 6, or 12 month subscription. just use code ‘beingbadenhop’ at check out!
