Good Tidings Today

So many things to share, so I will admit that this post is a bit of a ramble, but here goes.

1. Christmas Spirit

a merry little christmasBack in November, La Maman Heureuse wrote about the spirit of giving and offered her readers a gift to thank them for following along. She asked that you leave a comment with a sweet Christmas memory and a winner would be chosen based on the comments received.  Well, I for one, first had to tell her how sweet it was that she was doing something so generous. No giveaway entries, no follow requests, just simple giving. I thought it was the prime example of Christmas Spirit. I left a comment saying something like that and also sharing how special is to me because it is both the time I met my husband AND when he proposed. I recently wrote a guest post for Polly about when we met and now I have written one for La Maman Heurese about my husband’s marriage proposal. Christmas is such a special time for me so if you aren’t sick of all the love and mush, definitely go check them out!

And look at this adorable Christmas package she sent me from Belgium! Isn’t she sweet? Make sure you stop by and spread some Christmas cheer her way!

Wrapped so cute and festive!

2. Book Release Day!

Yep, if you haven’t heard, I recently became a contributing author to a book about motherhood. (I wrote a more detailed post about it here.) I am so excited that I was chosen and today is the official book release day! I have included the book on my sidebar that links it to Amazon should you be so inclined to purchase it. But shameless plug aside, I just really wanted to share this exciting news! They are promoting the book release in a radio interview in the states today to help spread the word about this amazing cause. Thanks again to all of you for your support!

  1. Thank you for your sweet words! You just made my day, so happy you liked my present and the pleasure was all mine in giving! Felt really good to do! Definitely something to repeat :-)

    And congrats again on getting your story published, it’s so amazing! One step closer to your own book ;-)?

    Happy holidays to you and your little family!

    Awww, that pacakge is so adorable! I love the wrapping paper and all the things inside.

    I’m sick of Christmas already and it isn’t even here yet! I have today, tomorrow and a tiny bit of Saturday to finish all my Christmas shopping (and probably Jan’s too!) and get the remaining parcels wrapped. When did I acquire so many people to buy gifts for?!

    • Isn’t it? She did such a nice job and it was all so thoughtful. I love the cute socks. I’m all about fun socks!

      Aww sorry you seem stressed! I think we have a few minor things to get but other than that, just wrapping to be done. Hope you get it all done and can relax!

  3. Yay!! Congratulations and Merry Christmas!! Let’s try to reconnect in person in the New Year. If you are around Trier this weekend, let me know and we can try and connect.

    Those are such wonderful posts! You sound like you really found a keeper ;) It’s crazy how your life can totally change when you’re not even looking. You expect things that you planned – like quitting a job or moving overseas – to make a difference, but it’s the little unexpected things that really throw you for a loop.

    Congrats on being included in the book — that’s a seriously amazing opportunity! Hope your holiday season continues to be sickeningly sweet ;)

    Wow, that is so sweet of her to do that. A lot of bloggers I see, do giveaways and ask to be followed in return. It’s nice to see that not everyone is not like that.

    I like packages that has multiple things inside, even if they’re just little stuff. I think that’s what I like about them though. That I have more things to look at and enjoy.

  7. Wow those are great stuff! And the panda socks are so cute!
    Congratulation on the book! I am going to take really good care of the postcard when it arrives because I am going to tell everybody that it came from a published author. ;)

    Merry Christmas to you and your family! And congratulations on being a contributing author of a book :)

    Congrats on having your writing published, that is awesome! I am also super jealous of the special Christmas package from Belgium. Too much cute.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!! I don’t know what to wish for you this year … you’re an amazing mom, wife and blogger, you’ve obviously come away with one miracle (albeit you had to experience it via a car crash), you’ve been published and you’ve gotten the bestest Christmas care package ever! So I’m going with the most traditional of heartfelt wishes for you: health, happiness, prosperity and peace. Thank you so much for all your encouragement my best blogging buddy. I truly hope your day and your year are filled with a multitude of tiny little miracles. X

    • Well thank you so much 3B! Such sweet and kind words! Glad to see you back these past few days and so glad you won an expat award! Your top ten list was really hilarious. I’m wishing the same for you as well and with warm thoughts and prayers for your dad. xx
