About Me

My name is Samantha, and I am the owner of Biggest Little Threads. I grew up in Northern California, and my family followed my grandparents to Reno, Nevada in 2005. The move was huge, and I was just starting high school when I came here. We began to build a life here, and Reno became home. When I was 18, I got pregnant with my first child, a boy! His father and I, unfortunately, did not work out. My husband and I met at work, which happens to be the same job I've had for almost 15 years now, and we got married when I was 20. He and I had 2 more children together, both boys! We have always worked hard, and opposite shifts, to make sure that someone is always home with the children...because let's face it, who can afford child care for multiple children? So here we are, 10 years into our marriage, and I'm working until almost 3 o'clock in the morning every single shift, and getting up with the children while he starts work at 7 o'clock in the morning. We are passing ships in the night, and I am missing all the important parts of their childhoods. I'm not home for dinner, bath time, bedtime, or homework and I'm so ready to change my life. I'm ready to work from home and no longer miss out on these huge milestones in my kid's lives. I don't want them to look back as adults, and only remember that I was not there for the important things, and when I was home, I was a sleep-deprived zombie. This isn't it. So I started my own business, and I'm building it from the ground up in my home. I have big dreams, and YOU, the customer, are helping to make this happen for me. For my family. Thank you.

One part about having 3 beautiful children (whom I absolutely adore) is the changes that my body has endured. I've struggled with loving the skin that I'm in, and appreciating what my body does for me every day. I've made the conscious decision to love myself as I am, because I deserve better, and I do not want to raise my boys with the mentality that women are only their size. I want to feel confident in the clothes I'm wearing. I want to feel beautiful. I want the clothes I wear to fit my body, I do not want to make my body fit the clothes. So you know what? I WILL WEAR THE OPEN TWIST BACK SWEATER. I will wear the cropped tops. I will wear the leggings, because they make me feel good. You know what else? YOU SHOULD TOO. Buy the sweater. Wear it. YOU are beautiful. YOUR BODY IS BEAUTIFUL. I strive every day to make sure that you know that every curve, muscle, lump and bump is there for a reason, and you need to be nicer to yourself. Your body wakes you up every morning. Your body has survived every single thing you've put it through up to this moment, and it is STUNNING. For this reason, sizes Small-3X will stay stocked in the shop.
