Today happens to be my birthday!

And while I’m not a big, it’s -my-special- day, all-about-me, kind of gal,  because hello, I’m a mom and I still have to make lunches and do dishes, and fold laundry. But my people- my family and friends- sure know how to spoil a girl. This week I received all kinds of thoughtful, special, fun gifts, along with texts, phone calls, and cards.  I wish I had time to tell you about each and every person behind all those thoughtful gestures. But I don’t…

If you read my last post, you know that two years ago, just a few days after my birthday I found out I was pregnant and then soon after miscarried. And then several months after that I suffered a pulmonary embolism. It was a hard year. But that hard year made me thankful for everyone in my life. Including you all!! Which is why I can’t wait to share with you some of my favorite birthday gifts I have received and then give them to one of you!

That’s right, I’m hosting a birthday giveaway. All you have to do is enter your name and email, either at the very top of this page or here at the bottom to win.

Without further ado here are my favorite gifts I received.

My BFF from Idaho, we’ve literally been friends our whole lives, gave me these awesome Adult Reward Stickers– because we all need a pat on the back some days! Am I right?! My favorite is the “I almost went to the gym.” Winning!!

My most favorite candle in the world, Volcano. I go through these candles way too fast. My sister, knows me well! Thanks, Sis!

My Bestie sent me my most favorite candy in the world, Red Vines, don’t even talk to me about Twizzlers, Twizzlers are not licorice. And anybody who loves Red Vines knows they have to be soft, and these babies are! Yum.

And last but not least, I bought myself a little early birthday gift.  This gorgeous bracelet from a local Albuquerque, jewelry maker, Genuine and Ginger. It’s becoming a bit of an anthem for me, Fear is a liar but love tells the truth.
