a sweet BIRTHDAY giveaway, plus a change of plans...




So today was supposed to be the third installment of mine and Marion Smith's blog hop featuring our recycled treasures. We as some of you may know, Garrett's (Marion's husband) grandfather passed away this past week. So Marion and family had to leave suddenly down to Texas to be with family. With this, I am not sure if Marion will even have the time to think about our blog hop, so I am going to text her and see if she would like me to postpone it for now. So for today I am going to give you this fun little sneak peek of my project, and if by some miracle (which is totally possible with Marion) Marion posts her project tomorrow, than I will go ahead and post mine on Tuesday. I am sorry for the delay, but I really don't want Marion to feel any more pressure than she already is right now. I wish her and her family the best of luck with their travels and hope that you will join me in praying for them during this tough time.


Today is also my sweet Sawyer's birthday... Oh how I love his sweet face and I am still left speechless when I think of just an amazing little boy he is.





As much struggles as we have been through, he brings a joy to our lives that makes trials and heartache go void... I was already a mother when he was born, but what he did make me was a fighter, an advocate, a proclaimer... and a victor. I love you Sawyer and thank the lord for every little piece of you that he has blessed me with.

In honor of my Sawyer and the piece of my heart that he carries... I would love to giveaway one bottle of "Piece of Heart" Glimmer Mist. For those of you who do not know, this was a special color of Glimmer Mist that me and another mother from the office created to helps support Autism Awareness. If you would like to be entered into winning this bottle, leave a comment on any post on my blog that is dated between today and Thursday (April 29th) and I will randomly pic a winner and post it on Friday.


Thanks again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAWYER!!!!!!

  5. While I'd love to win, I really wanted to post to say that you and Marion are in my prayers. The reason why we do what we do is because of family - they are SO much more important than anything else! Everything else can wait - every moment counts with our family and friends. I have a nephew named Sawyer so when I saw your son's name, my heart already gave a squeeze to you! Lots of love to you and Marion! Traci

  19. l love your post-it's honest and shows how passionate your are as a mother and a 'victor'. My nephew has autism and I am amazed and inspired by how my brother and his wife have become champions and advocates to increase awareness and promote opportunities for him. My sister-in-law created a soccer team for him and some of his friends from school so they could experience the joy of sports. Hope Sawyer and your family have a fab birthday!

  23. Happy Birthday sweet Sawyer. You and your mommy are both Angels. Liz you and your husband are truly blessed with this little Angel. Wouldn't it be a great world if all parents with such struggles realized how much they can learn from their children. To be an advocate and a proclaimer is to be an Angel of God and a Keeper of his children.

  24. Wow! This is my first visit to your blog and I am inspired by your view of life! Children are a gift and some are more 'special' than others! May God bless you and your family!
