I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I wish for you a peaceful day and gentle thoughts of your babies that will be missing from your day’s celebrations. I know I have struggled over the last few days just thinking of how this holiday should be. I miss my girls, however I do take much comfort in thinking that Hutch’s grandma is looking after them.
Since I can’t mail you all a Christmas card, here it is on my blog. I don’t know if you can read it or not, but the front says, “Blessed. So much to be grateful for this holiday season.” When I was choosing my cards (I went with Tiny Prints this year and LOVED them!!) I liked the looks of this one, but I really didn’t pay attention to any of the wording on it because that can always be changed. Once I decided I liked the layout of the pictures I read the card and thought it was perfect. We are blessed and we do have so much to be grateful for. We still miss our girls, and that will never change, but nevertheless, we are grateful for the ones who are here with us. The inside has Sophia’s & Ellie’s Christmas Tree in the sand that Carly drew for us. It is beautiful! Just my way of including them.
Okay, so onto the giveaways. I really don’t even want to tell you about the first one because I really want to win! But I will, today we are going back to see Amelia’s mommy, Stephanie, at Carried Through Grief. Stephanie is such an amazing painter and she has TWO paintings she is giving away today to two lucky winner! Go check it out, you’ll love them!
I am hosting the other giveaway today. So many of us have a certain phrase, saying, object, whatever that we associate with our babies. I want to work with the winner to come up with a very special piece of jewelry that captures their baby’s spirit perfectly. You may have something you have seen in the past, or an idea in your head, or no idea at all! But we will be working together closely to make it just right. Here are some things that come to mind that I have done in the past:
To enter my giveaway leave a comment here telling me a little something about what you think you may like if you win. I will choose a winner in a couple days because I know you are going to be too busy to visit today!
Merry Christmas my friends!
Sophia and Ellie mommy is missing you today and loving you always. xoxo
