So many things to share, so I will admit that this post is a bit of a ramble, but here goes.
1. Christmas Spirit
Back 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. Â 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 husbandâ€™s marriage proposal. Christmas is such a special time for me so if you arenâ€™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! Isnâ€™t she sweet? Make sure you stop by and spread some Christmas cheer her way!
2. Book Release Day!
Yep, if you havenâ€™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!
