1. My sister-in-law (the lucky girl who married by cute brother) started a design blog. That's what she does for a living...interior design. Guys, she is so incredibly talented. She's about to get her graduate degree from UCLA's design program and I'm so amazed by her. So check out her new blog, Trovare Design. She would be so happy for some follower momentum since she literally just stepped onto the blogging scene last month. Please help me welcome her to the blog world.
(BTW this pic is when we both were trying the no-heat-curls thing last fall. And Bridge, you may not like that I'm posting this photo. But it was either this, or you shooting a handgun.)
2. Aly, my sweet friend in real life and blogging, is hosting a salvage517 giveaway today for me. Woo hoo! If you enter, you can win your choice of a Vintage Thanksgiving postcard display, which would make a great hostess gift for whomever you'll be dining with on turkey day. And guess what? If you're a follower of mine, you already qualify for an entry. Check out Aly's blog here.
There are a few new things in the shop too. I'm posting a pic of this new vintage turkey guy simply because it's election day, friends!! (But there are plenty of others you can win, like the frames double the size with two postcards...)
3. Speaking of voting. Yes, I'm voting, and no, I haven't gone yet. I have an absentee ballot and didn't mail it in. So I have to go surrender it and hope they let me vote. They better! My daughter who is 10 learned all about the process in school and is excited to come with me to see how it all works :) I'm a little nervous for the election results. Are you? Thank the Lord He is sovereign and anything that happens in our country has to pass by his throne for approval. Right??
I've loved the posts and Instagrams of people voting today. Hey, let's not be negative about one another's political views, kay? Some of my blog friends are voicing their beliefs and getting some serious criticism for doing so. Really? Both sides are flawed. We are all just doing our best to make good judgements based on our passions and views. None is perfect, none is exactly aligned with what God's word says. Both political platforms align with different aspects of a Biblical worldview, and things I feel very strongly about. So let's just respect one another. Enough said.
I could add ten more things to that list...so much on my mind and heart. So much I have yet still to share. But for now, I have kids and messes and running water and blasting Taylor Swift and plans to fight the hordes tonight at the local Lego store so that we can build a free tiny little turkey which will take 2 hours to wait in line for and 2 minutes to actually construct. That math does not compute, and yet we're going.
Have a great night.
