{ bliss filled days }

               { source }

  I apologize for vanishing like that after typing up my last post, giveaway and all. We do infact have a winnner. ( see the end of this post for the details on that )

  March, even though we are only two weeks into it has turned out to be sweeter than I ever imagined possible. Baby Lucy doll and I were spoiled beyond words + so overwhelmed by the love made visible of a dear, dear group of amazing + gifted friends . It was truly the loveliest baby shower of all time. The atttention paid to every single pretty detail, made me feel so treasured + loved.
  Then somehow magically ( due in great part to our loving, giving, super wonderful husbands ) this past weekend we were able to pull off, in true March tradition, for the third year in a row..a weekend visit from this oh so adored lady. Darn it that she caught me, I almost booked her to stay until May.  

 And now the question we wait with baited breath to see if March will include getting to glimpse and cuddle this sweet baby girl that we have fallen so in love with. 

And now back to the giveaway results. The ever lovely Jessica at Living the Swell Life was the lucky winner of One Thousand Gifts...Keep an eye out for it in mail as it is shortly on it's way to you dearie.

It is my sincere wish + hope that March has been and will continue to be oh so good to you, my friend. xo

March is for...

March is for reading beautiful books + counting gifts. And for giveaways. To enter your own copy of Ann Voskamp's book, One Thousand Gifts leave a comment with a book recommendation or current good read of your own. Check back on Friday to see if you won. I am so very excited to start our study of this book with dear friends on Thursday morning.  

" Thanksgiving creates abundance; and the miracle of multiplying happens when I give thanks - take the just one loaf, say it is enough, and give thanks - and He miraculously makes it more than enough. I have beheld suds in sun, and I have known miracles like that. "

March is for cheerful primroses to brighten up the gray, snow-melting days.

March is for baby showers, thrown by amazingly artistic + precious friends.
Is that not the sweetest little invitation you have ever seen? It's been hanging on my refrigerator and making me smile all week long.

March is for...wearing cute hats.

 March is for...enjoying the swirl of pretty colors in Annabelle's birthday fish in their vintage green mason jar "fish bowl."

March is for homemade waffles on the weekends

March is for stacks of pretty fabric + sewing up quilts.

What is March for to you friend?
