finally...a winner

Okay, so I'm late...that's the story of my life! I said I would try to choose a winner last week, but it just didn't happen. But you know what they say, better late than never!! So onto the winner...

I used to choose a commenter and the winner was Deni! And isn't she sweet, she wants to give it to someone else! Let me know your plans Deni!

I hope you all had a peaceful Mother's Day. Mine was...I don't know, I guess kind of weird. I did the usual things to celebrate and that was nice, but I just feel like I'm in a strange place with my loss.

My first Mother's Day after losing Sophia and Ellie was just 2 or 3 weeks later. I was still numb, still so tired. Last year I was pregnant with Gigi and we had just "celebrated" the girls' first birthday. This year was just...I don't know, just strange. I guess I'm still learning to live with it all, but I wish it would stop changing. Just when i think I have things semi-figured out, something changes. I'm not sure what, but something. I guess grief is forever evolving. Hmmm...that wasn't in the handbook.

mother’s day giveaway

I hope you all have a wonderfully peaceful day.  I know for some of you this will be the first year without your sweet baby, for others it will be yet another without a baby in your arms, and for some it will be the first year with your rainbows.  Where ever you are in this journey, I hope your day is filled with love, beauty, and sweet reminders of all your children.

I have had one of these little blanks for sometime now. 


I have been waiting for an opportunity to use it, but just haven't found it yet.  I don’t like to make things unless they are for someone, I feel it is just wasteful to stamp some random name on something (especially with the price of silver right now!) and really, I have so many pieces for myself that I just don’t need another one to throw in the rotation!  So that brings me here…to you.  I am giving away one of these angel wing pendants personalized with your baby’s(ies) name.  I will also add birthstones or crystals if you wish.  To enter, leave a comment here telling me what you would like on the wing if you were to win.  I will be randomly choosing a winner early next week (hopefully!)  And if you would like to take a look to see what else is in my shop here is the link:

Wishing you all peace and comfort today and always.  I will be loving on all of my children this weekend: Brady, Emma, Sophia, Ellie, and Gigi.  xoxox
