As I was writing this post, I realized today it's my 8 year wedding anniversary. Don't worry, I'm not now just remembering this, we do have plans...like a really great movie and big bowls of ice cream. After a day with 3 littles, this is kind of our dream date these days.
Anyway, this week we have some fun giveways and posts for you in honor of mothers day this week.
Along with my dad, my mom was my #1 fan and supporter. She taught me how to clean, do laundry, cook and basically be domestic, but I didn't realize how much she actually did for me until I moved out and then even more so when I got married. She was selfless in all she did to take care of us 6 kids.
I also must credit my sisters (and sisters in laws) as being some of my greatest examples of being a mother and a good person. Being one of the younger sisters, I'm so lucky to learn from their example. Even Sierra (not yet married) is such a great example to me of love and selflessness. Seriously, I love my family.
When we realized I was pregnant with our first, we could hardly believe it. Now 4 years later, we have been blessed to have 3 littles. Being a mother is definitely a 24 hour gig, but it's the kind of job that I don't ever wish to quit. One of my favorite songs is a children's song that we sing in our church called "The Family Is of God" and the chorus sums up what I feel about my family:
Whether it's your mom, sister, brother, husband, or children, we really do need families to become better people. Because I love these words so much, I made a printable for you.
Mothers day isn't just for those who have children, I strongly believe it's a time to celebrate all woman. Some can't have children of their own but they can still be a mother in someway. So let's start this week with this fun $300 target shopping spree.
This giveaway could not be possible without all these fabulous hosts featured below so be sure to stop by and give them some love.
