i'm a lucky, lucky girl!!!

hello hello lovies!!!!

i'm back and safe from my labor day minnie roadtrip with my darling friend. we had an AMAZING time and saw a really great game, one that ESPN called an instant classic! i can't wait to tell you all about my trip and show you pictures {coming up tomorrow!}

i was a little bummed knowing i have to wake up early and go to work and then my heart started hurting when i realized how soon darling friend will be leaving for his job promotion {i know i know, i've neglected to talk about this HUGE event in our life... i will soon i promise}. I was in need of some joy, so I thought i'd go online and catch up on your lives (i've missed YOU!).

what a right decision that was!
guess what lovies?! of all the giveaways i've entered and wished on countless dandelions, i've never won. never.

but as they say, never say never!!! guess who finally won one?!?!?! *HUGE SMILES!*


I was jumping up and down with joy! Brooke is the happy (and beautiful- i have to add the obvious) wife of Grant {seriously, the cutest couple} and you may already be acquainted with her through the ADORABLE blog Playing Grown Up.


not only does she make the sweetest necklaces, but recently, these fun chalkboards. This is the one i chose, because as i told Brooke- i was going to make Max write me a love note every Friday:

here's the one i won! isn't it beautiful and fun? and practical?!

i have been wanting a chalkboard FOREVER.
*THANKS BROOKE for the giveaway. I feel incredibly special!

and lucky for this and for my blessing- for darling friend.
After we got home and played with our doggie babies, he dropped me off to my parents so i could hang out with them for awhile. He just wrote me this text:

"After i left, it started slowly sinking in just how little time we have left together before i leave for VA... :( I love you, you know."

my reply:
"Its scary and makes me soooo sad. :( I love YOU, you know. You completely made my night! my last week. my life."

for these two reasons, i feel incredibly lucky and blessed.
God has blessed this little girl.
and I'm every bit thankful. xo
