For some reason I really wanted to start this post “Ahoy there maties” but there is nothing nautical about this entry. Seriously, we got snow dumped on us last night and my back and butt are so tired from blowing out the driveways! I’m a bit tired from the extra noise from snowed in children (though I still think a snow day is really fun). The snow is beautiful, really inspiring.
We’re over halfway through Fourteen Days of Valentines and my sewing room is a complete wreck. My ironing board is covered with thread and bits of fabric and ideas piled to the ceiling. That is a sign of a productive week! Today I am giving chap stick holders to two lovely and busy mom friends of mine. They’re super and the weather has been extra dry and cold so I figured the least they deserved was easy access to their lip moisturizing products (original pin here). Beki and Jen are always there for me to chat with and commiserate with (not that we would ever do such a thing) and I am so grateful that they are not only in my life but that their children are as well. I grew up with Aunts and cousins around constantly and I’m glad my boys get to have something like that in their lives as well.
Today I’m also starting the blogy giveaway because you all make me feel so special. Sailing through this journey we call life (see I did bring it back around). I’ve got at least seven things I want to share with you (maybe more by the time the 14th rolls around) so leave a comment on this post telling us what your favorite love story is or who is your favorite couple (we won’t even judge you too harshly if it’s Bella and Edward, though Catniss and Peta would be more acceptable) . Subscribe to my blog and I’ll enter your name a second time. At Christmas everyone who left a comment won something so don’t be shy! I’ll draw names on February 14th.
