Today is our one year blogging birthday! Last year at this time I was just wrapping up my Master's degree and needing a new outlet for my free time. I wanted to create a space where I could share my thoughts, struggles, and triumphs as a mom recovering from Postpartum Depression and Anxiety. I also wanted this space to be a safe place for other moms to find support and to realize they are not alone. This blog has become that for me, and so much more. I am extremely grateful for the kindness and loyalty of my readers, friends in real life, and family who comes back again and again to encourage and be encouraged. You are awesome!!!
Speaking of awesome, Heather over at Mama Heada has graciously offered to give one of my readers any single item from her etsy shop! She makes adorable diaper covers, hats, booties, scarves, and more. Do you know anyone who is going to have a fall baby perhaps? (ahem.) Perrrrfect. And her scarves for momma are good any time of year, in my opinion. Unless of course you live where I live and it is currently the temperature of the core of the earth.
These are a few of my favorite things.... it would be difficult to pick just one!
I love this color!
Gender neutral bum cover. Brilliant!
Here are the details to enter! Simply head over to Heather's shop and leave a comment telling me what you would pick if you win! While you are over there, be sure to Favorite her shop so you can find it later! Heather has also generously offered 10% off your purchase from May 4th to May 8th as well, using the code ArmsWideOpen. The items are already very affordable, so that is a great deal!
Wait. There's more.
My wonderful mother wanted to chip in to the giveaway (either that or I begged her...) and she made this adorable soft clutch for one of you to take home! It is the perfect size for your cash, and has an interior pocket for credit cards, business cards, etc. It's also big enough for a small notebook, pen, and your phone. Best part? The fabric is vintage and re-purposed, found tucked away in my grandma's attic!
(Cash not included)
