My heavens...1,000 posts!
I must have had lots to say in the past 3 1/2 years.
One thousand posts seems a little exorbitant, don't you think?
Yes, it is excessive and also a reason to
C E L E B R A T E.
Because you know I always love a good celebration.
I may have done a lot of waxing poetic, griping, rejoicing, bragging, creating, extolling, thinking-out-loud in these 1,000 posts; but I can tell you one thing I've never done is a giveaway.
I'm fixin' a change that.
What I'm giving away:
An adorable hand-knit creation from THIS etsy shop.
Marci is a friend of mine from high school.
She knits the most "awwww!" inspiring confections for the top of your babies heads.
I love them.
Love. Love. Love.
Each one is cuter than the first.
She makes her hats to order from 0 months to 4 years size.
She also says she'll make adult sizes too...
so if you have a hankerin' to wear an owl on your adult-sized noggin, your wish is her command.
(I don't advise an adult wearing an owl on her head...for the record.)
I also want to send you one of my favorite books.
The winner may choose from one of two fabulous reads.
Mitten Strings for God by Katrina Kenison
The amazon site is HERE.
This book will change the pace of your days as a mother and your perspective of what is valuable in life.
Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy by Sarah Ban Breathnach
The amazon site is HERE.
This book is (almost) the sole reason I went back to nursing school a few years ago.
It challenged me to do a little soul-examination and (in tandem with my Bible and prayer time) led me to realize I needed to take life by the horns and seize my day.
One of my favorites, for sure.
