THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. Thanks to everyone for entering. Winner TBA soon!
Today’s a big day. One year ago exactly, I started this blog. I wrote about a late period, goals for my 24th year, and Journey. Like, the band. Perhaps not my most shining moment, but it was a piece of the puzzle that brought me here. God blessed the broken road, y’all.
This last year, I’ve made HUGE progress. Through therapy, support from a few close loved ones, grace, & a ton of work on my part, I’ve moved forward leaps & bounds. The other day, when I posted about running (or maybe not), I was surprised at how joyful I felt. Not just at peace. Not just “under control.” Joyful. Strong. Victorious.
I owe much of this progress to this blog & my beautiful readers. Through the outlet I’ve found & the support I’ve been shown, I’ve felt myself being restored a little more each day. I went through a time of serious depression, but now that I’ve found all of you, even though you can’t be in my living room with me, I can feel your support through the computer screen. I don’t feel so alone anymore. And with the hurdle of moving to a new place (where I don’t know anyone) looming in front of me, I am no longer afraid of that overwhelming feeling of solitary taking over my life again. I know that at any given moment, I can reach out through here or here or any of the other outlets provided, and one or twenty of you will reach right back.
Anyway, thanks for reading & tweeting & just being there. It means more to me than ice cream & ruffled underwear on babies.
Now let’s giveaway!
We all have those corners of our home where we like to put things that add character & warmth. Things that exhibit our personality. I have a few of those corners, and when Carla from Thirteen Winks contacted me about sponsoring a giveaway, I was excited. I mean, the woman makes adorable prints of mustaches! I knew she was a match for LFT. Then she offered me 2 prints – one to keep & one to giveaway. So I set about making one of life’s most complicated decisions.
Should I choose “Luck in a Jar”?
How about the sweet “Poppy Love”?
Or the whimsical “Four fun mustaches”?
I ended up choosing the “Love Birds” print, which goes perfectly on the bookcase in our bedroom showcasing all the “lovey dovey” things we own. I adore the combination of birds, black & white, and a red heart – 3 of my favorite things! And see how cute it looks!
The packaging was precious & Carla has the loveliest handwriting… it’s so fun to get something pretty in the mail.
One lucky winner will win (1) print of their choice from Thirteen Winks, and here are the 3 ways to enter:
