Review: Lenny Lamb Florence

When Rachel over at 5 Minute Recess asked me to test out one of their new *Exclusives* woven by Lenny Lamb, I jumped at the opportunity. 5mr is known for carrying some of the lesser known budget wrap lines, and I am all for some more accessible woven wraps on the market.

Tutorial: Double Hammock with Xena Finish

I love this carry for hiking, back naps, museums, anything where I know that she is going to be up on my back for awhile.
