Feeling the love
I want to start by congratulating the winner of the Joyful Jewelry Giveaway, Rian @ Truth and Cake! I let Matt do the actual drawing and was really excited to see him pull Rian’s name, as she is one of the first bloggers I started following. Congrats, Rian! Love ya!
I’ve decided that giveaways are so much fun, and that I need to do more of them. It is true what they say, that it’s better to give than to receive. I feel like I have been on the receiving side a bunch lately. I won a giveaway, gained a handful of new followers, celebrated a one-year blogiversary, and was nominated for the Leibster Award–not once, but THRICE! Thrice in the same week, 3 bloggers reached out and nominated me as a blogger who is kind, endearing, and beloved.
I’m not good at receiving praise and awards. For example, if someone says to me, “Wow, those jeans look great on you!” I would normally respond, “Oh, these are my fat pants, they’re just old and ugly and stupid….but thanks!” I hear my mom’s voice in my head, “Just say ‘thank you’!” I’m working on this you guys, I promise. So I will just say “thank you so very much” to these wonderful bloggers. Please take some time to check out their unique blogs…

I leave you now with some love in a photo. I was so excited to see this little guy in the ice, as winter really puts a damper on my heart-rock hunting, and outdoor bliss-seeking.
Isn’t it magical?! LOVE is everywhere!
