Would you like to see the text message that buzzed my phone at 2 o'clock this morning?
I have happy-danced around this kitchen until I can't happy-danced another step (the story is here, if you're just tuning in). Seems to me the best way to celebrate would be to throw some things in a suitcase and hop on an airplane for Ethiopia so I can get my hands on my little niece. That's just a bit impractical, I guess, but how perfect is it that I already had a sweet giveaway scheduled for today? Now it feels like a birthday party! And it's even more perfect that's from a company that celebrates what is beautiful and sentimental about families: Lisa Leonard Designs.
I'm sure you've seen her jewelry--her gorgeous designs are everywhere these days, and for good reason. They are classic, elegant and completely customizable. This is one of my favorites:
I love this one, too--actually, I have this one myself, with my four kids' initials, and it's a wardrobe staple:
These necklaces would make a good Valentine's Day gift, too. Need some help with this? Leave up this blog post and walk away casually. I'll handle the rest:
But maybe you won't have to wait that long, because Lisa has graciously offered to give TWO readers here a $50 gift certificate. In order to win, simply pop over to Lisa Leonard Designs, look around, and come back here to leave a comment saying how you'd spend your gift certificate. (If you want to do a happy dance on behalf of my sweet new niece, then you get extra points. Okay, not really, but you'd make me smile.)
Please, only one entry per person, and only people with US or Canadian mailing addresses are eligible to win.
Many thanks to Lisa Leonard--and all of you--for helping me celebrate this special day! For more giveaways than you could possibly know what to do with, head over to the Bloggy Giveaways carnival. It will make your head spin, but it sure is fun.
