Hello Monday! {and June Giveaway}

Hello Monday!

Hello to my Sweets being home after a week away.
I never sleep well while he’s gone, so I was tired.

Speaking of tired … we said HELLO to several things on our summer list:: playdate{s} / swimming / Sonic / bike rides

Hello to NEW LIFE.
My Bestie welcomed her son Finn into the world Friday morning. I got the call at 3AM and the great joy of ‘virtually’ being there via Skype. Witnessing a birth will never cease to amaze me and sing praises to my Creator. Little Finn came 4 weeks early, so his lungs need a little more time to fully mature {like a fine cheese the nurses said, LOL} … while all ‘routine and normal’ you know Finn, his mama and family would love your prayers.

Hello to a BIG nap {2 hours} on Saturday following this super fun, tiring and emotional week.

Hello to reading.
Kisses from Katie is working on my heart and soul the way many had warned … hoping to finish in the next few days. Happy to start off my summer reading with this book.

A big HELLO to Knitty Bitties monthly “Happy Bundle Giveaway.”
This month’s bundle is inspired by romantic pastels. Pink and coral mixed with white and lace. A soft color palette that makes me think of roses and porches and sweet summer days.

{This bundle is put together by me with my own funds (with the exception of any sponsored items listed) and will be shipped by me to one very happy you!}

Let’s take a closer look at what you could win::

Sweet dangly earrings / “Sasha” Julep polish / Martha Stewart Notepad / Whirly-Gig Trivet

{Julep note: This was one of the polishes I received in my “Golden Ticket” box. I love the color, but have something similar, so I am giving this one to you. I have had such fun with my Julep Maven subscription. If you’d like to know more, go check out this post. You can use the code “MAVENINTRO” to get your first box shipped for only .01!}

This month’s bundle features not one but TWO wonderful sponsors::

Baby Girl Headband
{from sponsor, The Snootie Pig}

Hello! Pink Herringbone Flat Cards & Notebook Jotter
{from sponsor, The Paper Clouds}

Pretty fabulous right?
A little bit to pamper yourself, keep you organized and send a sweet note off to a friend this summer.

I’ve had such a wonderful time getting to know so many talented shop owners and LOVE sharing their talent with all of you. This month, both The Snootie Pig & The Paper Clouds CUSTOM designed their contributions to go with my ‘romantic pastel’ colorway. Stay tuned next week for their feature posts {and possible discount codes ::wink, wink::} where you’ll get to know them even better!

Giveaway ends Sunday, June 30 / Winner will be announced on Monday, July 2.
