Happy weekend + Max Wanger giveaway winner!

Friday, December 20, 2013


Happy Friday, friends! I’m breaking my “no Friday posting” rule for today because I wanted to run over a few updates!!

1 // Thank you for all the well wishes, friends! It’s been tough to get back into the groove of things while being sick for the past 2 weeks…but I think I’m finally happy to announce that I’m feeling better. Still on the path to full recovery, but getting there slowly but surely. ♥

2 // Many of you were introduced to my sweet Domingo on Instagram while I was on vacation! I’m glad many of you took kindly to this amazing little furry friend who has stolen my heart for the past 10 years and shown me love that I’ve never known before. For those of you who were wondering, Cocoa was her brother who we adopted at the Humane Society. He passed away 2 years ago but I still talk of him as if he were still around ♥. Domingo resides in paradise (Hawaii) with a dear friend who keeps very good care of her and spoils her silly! Yes, I miss her everyday!

3 // Lastly, a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who entered the ahhhmazing Max Wanger print giveaway! Wasn’t that one awesome prize?! I mean, I wish I could have just won it for myself! All the giveaways this 24 Merry Days season have been spectacular and I hope you all are keeping up and entering! Only 6 days left! Want to know who won the Max Wanger giveaway?
