I had plans to host a week of giveaways this week as a thank you for all the kindness, advice and encouragement that so many of you have shared with me throughout the year. It didn’t feel right on Monday, or yesterday and if I’m being honest, I’m not sure when, if ever, it will feel like I can casually get back to normal light hearted posts when everything feels insignificant right now.

But the more I thought about it, the more I felt like I should go ahead with this. I felt like it would be nice to send a tiny bit of good news to a few folks after such a dark week for our country.

This week, several of my favorite products and brands have jumped on board to spread a little holiday spirit with my readers. I’m squeezing five days worth of goodies into the next three days so there will be several giveaway each day.

Thank you, readers, for stopping in on this little page of mine. Thanks for making me laugh and sending me such fantastic recommendations, ideas and guidance as I navigate this crazy adventure called motherhood . Thanks for making the journey alongside me.  I wish you all a very happy, healthy, safe holiday season. I’m so excited to send some of my favorite things your way this week. Good luck!
