One Thousand Gifts (Giveaway)

First of all...without going into too much detail...I obviously took a little blogging/facebook(for the most part)/social media vacation. Not going to was kind of nice. I had to do it. But I'm back and refreshed. And one reason I feel so refreshed is because of this book:

Have you read One Thousand Gifts yet? Its one of those books that you just have to read. I purchased it quite a while back and just got to reading it around Easter time. It was perfect timing for me to read this as I needed to step back and look at things. This book makes you look at life, love and the gifts that Jesus gives to us daily so differently. And to be thankful for where you are, right now. The grass is not always greener on the other side. All of the gifts around us that we just take for granted...its almost heartbreaking to think of. But, Ann Voskamp makes you happy that you are able realize this and start fresh. She challenges you to slow down and make a list of one thousand gifts (small or big) that you are thankful for. I started my list and its amazing where the list has taken me. From small things like my floors being warm from the spring sun shining down on them to bigger things like a longtime prayer being answered. I'm so thankful for this book and the timing of it in my life.

Okay, so wanna know something exciting! I love this book so much that I am going to give one one of you! Cool, huh?!? All you have to do is leave a comment about something SMALL you are thankful for. Its the little things in life, people! I will choose a winner on Sunday! Please leave your email address along with your comment. YAY!

Now, onto a little business...I just got a few different fabrics in from Michael Miller. They had an amazing little sale going on so I took full advantage. Here are a couple of them that are listed in the shop:
