I am so glad you're here! This is my little corner where I get to share some of my most favorite images from engagements, weddings, births, my travels and my own little family from time to time. Hang out, look around, and please reach out to say hello!
A couple of months ago, my friend Logan over at Life for Dessert did a week of giveaways the week of her birthday. I loved that she did that and the idea just stuck with me. And then last week, on another blog that I follow, Emily, over at Jones Design Company, gave away a scarf from this amazing company called fashionABLE. So, those two ideas combined gave me the idea for giveaways this week. Yes, my birthday is on Friday and some of you might get sick of hearing about it :-) But, as much as I love celebrating my birthday and just having fun with it, I LOVE giving gifts… and what better way than to help others than through the fun gifts?? Really, it’s the best of all worlds.
So, this week, I’ll be featuring 4 or 5 different companies that are B1G1 (Buy 1, Give 1) kind of companies. They may not be exactly that, but if it’s not B1G1, it’ll at least be a company that gives back in some way that benefits others. And then, hopefully, you’ll fall in love with their products and will continue to buy more for your self or purchase them as gifts for others. Christmas IS coming up, you know!
To get us started, I wanted to introduce you to fashionABLE. As I mentioned above, I was introduced to these ladies just recently, but I’ve already fallen in love.
These women are being empowered to change their circumstances and to change their lives. Because they’re making scarves, they’re ABLE to do so much more. If you take a quick look at this page on their site, you can see these women’s faces and see what they’re now able to do… such as “to have hope for the future”, “to see my son, Able, grow in character”, “to feel confident.” Over the past 7+years, I’ve learned and seen the importance of life change. Life change means that something has affected you or influenced you so much that you make practical decisions and take real steps toward changing your outlook, your actions, your thoughts, and your life. And these women are doing that! And it’s one of the coolest things. And… we get the chance to support them in this!!
So, how do you enter? Well, it’s pretty simple, actually. You can leave a comment (because I LOVE comments almost as much as I love my birthday), but you don’t have to! Do you see the box below? There are several ways you can get “points” which will increase your chances of winning. By no means do you have to do them all, but it’ll give you more chances to win. So, the contest for today is open until midnight eastern time and I’ll announce the winner on tomorrow’s post.
And just because I thought this was THE sweetest picture from my session on Saturday morning, here’s to being comforted even when we’re sad it’s Monday!
