Hey it’s Saturday! Sweet, work-free, relaxing, sleep-in Saturday. And the day I get to announce a winner for my first giveaway. For this drawing, I simply typed in all the names of the participants into the free List Randomizer on and picked the #1 name on the list. And wham bam thank ya ma’am, we got ourselves a winner.

Kayla is a fellow Texan (what up ATX!) who married her high school sweetheart, is a stay-at-home-momma to a sweet little toddler boy, and who blogs about biblical parenting and motherhood over at Go check her out – I think you’ll like her honest, transparent, and encouraging thoughts on raising kiddos with intentionality and grace.

Kayla, just shoot me an email at with your mailing address, and I’ll have this calendar in the mail and on your doorstep by next week.

Thanks to all the (whoppin’ 6!) ladies who participated in this drawing. It’s always fun to hear from old friends and new ones, peruse new blogs, and hear a little feedback as well. Have a great weekend!


I don’t know what your climate is like right now, but it is a hottttttt August afternoon in the north Texas country, and we are spending our day lounging indoors with the fans on full speed and the A/C as low as our budget will allow. So, between naps, reading, family visits, and a little T.V. watching (Absolutely hate sharks. Freaking love Shark Week.), I thought I’d stop by the blog today and have a little summer GIVEAWAY. Yeayah!

After selling one of my last 2013 Calendars from my Etsy shop last week, I thought… I have only ONE left. Why not just GIVE this bad boy away?
