Giveaway time.

***This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for the entries!***

I have a confession.
I've been in a funk this week.

People haven't been very nice to me, and I haven't taken it gracefully.
As much as I would love to write a blog that's happy and perky all the time, I just can't.
As much as I love sunshine and rainbows, my life isn't always filled with them.
As much as I've tried to be tough, I don't do well with rejection.

So you know what? The best way to cheer myself up is to do something nice for someone else.

I want to give one of you a necklace.
This one. Just a Chick.


What kind of Chick are you?
Beach chick. Country chick. Blogging chick. Sewing chick. Marathon chick. Photo chick. Flea Market Chick. Happy Chick.

What's your thing?
You tell us and we'll stamp it on your necklace.
(And seriously, how cool is the chick who gets to wear the "Gun Chick" necklace?! She's a competitive shooter. It wasn't an order for Sarah Palin.)

To enter:
1. Leave a comment and tell me one thing that's made you smile today.
2. If you want, tweet, blog, or facebook about it for additional entries. Please leave a seperate comment for each.
3. That's it! Easy peasy, right?

Now let me get out of my funk and start being a Happy Chick again.

Today my husband insisted that I forget about everything, rent movies, and knit. He made me smile. :) Im thinking, crazy chick, coffee chick, thrifty chick, creative chick, proud mama chick.
BTW if you didnt have down days, I would think you were an alien sent to Earth to blog. haha I think you are great!!

MariaSoleil said...

It's sunny here today! A rare occurrence making spring feel like it's right around the corner!

Me? I'm a crafty chick or a beach chick. {Only 4 more months until you can put your big toe in Lake Michigan!}

amy d said...

what makes me smile is that i am flying to sunny so. california today...ya hoo!! and then when i get home it is off to the big flea market in texas. BIG SMILES HERE!!
maybe if you wear the gun chick necklace people would be nice to you :)

Bailey said...

Snuggling in bed with my 4 year old made me smile today. He always comes in when I'm still sleeping and tries to get me to wake up. I make him snuggle first!

Hard Days Knit said...

My puppy's crazy morning hair made me smile today!

Hope you can get out of your funk soon! :)

A Cupcake for Moose said...

Aww, sorry you've been in a funk. Some days just get like that - you are definitely not alone.

This is kind of dorky, but I posted a recipe on my blog last night and couldn't think of a clever name to save my life. Then, it hit me this afternoon to call it "The Sky is Falling Chicken Lentil Soup." I don't know if anyone else will think it's funny, but at least it made me laugh. :)

Hang in there...summer is on it's way! :)

John and Elisa Seaba said...

My two year olds smile made me smile today even though it was a mischievous up to something kinda smile :) Hope your week get's better from here on out!

The Clines said...

Peace and quiet has made me smile today!

LuLu said...

xo,
LuLu

mommy2luke2008 said...

I am a photo chick!!!
My son always makes me smile...even when I don't want too. When he comes up to me with his lips puckered and goes "mmmmmaaaa" and gives me a big wet one....that makes my day!!!

mommy2luke2008 said...

I blogged about this giveaway and your blog!!

cindi said...

Mean people are so..YUCK! My grandbaby makes me smile and laugh. Not surewhat I would choose, but I'm definitely some kind of chick!

Elizabeth @ TexasEbeth said...

I thinking about signing up for a free Irish Dance class I saw advertised that is for adults only. That makes me smile! Plus Kiddo got dressed by himself without fussing this morning.
Crafty chick, reading chick, traveling chick all work for me.

2awesomekidz said...

My 5 year old daughter makes my day everyday and she is a
Sweet chick!

Kim @ Everything Etsy said...

I would really love to own one of your cool necklaces one day! Maybe this is my chance. I think Beach Chick would be cute.

I really liked the one you did for Remodeling This Life with her blog name.

You are such a sweetie for the great giveaway!

Cody said...

Finding out my friend's mom, who went into the hospital last night for chest pain, and another friend's baby, who was sick vomiting for no reason, are both okay and will be home and resting soon! :-) That totally put a smile on my face!

I love your jewelry. I would love a necklace stamped that say "Monster Chick" because I make and sell monster storage bags and stuffed monsters (and other things, but monsters is my niche!).

edytheanne said...

Today, a friend of mine who has served in China as a missionary for 5 years was given her heart's desire... it made me so happy to hear again, how good God is to his children.

Deidre Mooney said...

My twin daughters made me smile this morning while we were watching American idol saying those are tears of joy right Mama???

My charm would say "stamp chick" thanks for the chance!!

Cody said...

I also added the link to my Facebook wall!!

Laura said...

Looking at my beautiful roses sitting on my desk that is left over from Valentine's Day is making me smile and be happy right now.

I would love to have my necklace say "4-Wheeling Chick" because I love to ride my 4-Wheeler.

Anonymous said...

I am a teacher and one of the students said to me,"teacher, you are so pretty, but at the end of the day you don't look so good:)
You just have to smile with a comment like that:)

Trasie Bressler said...

Don't sweat the small stuff...It's all just small stuff. You have so much to be happy about right now in your life....Embrace it and have no regrets!!

I'm an overweight and happy chic!!!!

Chin up my friend!

It's all good!

Marc, Sarah, and Luke said...

I know -- sometimes, I'm in a "funk" as well...But, this morning, I went to Wal-Mart. My day was made because they have all new carts. They're quiet and clean :) That's the one little thing that made me happy today so far.

Brynwood Needleworks said...

Beki:
Your photo really made me smile. I was a hunter education instructor for the DNR in Wisconsin for 10 years before we moved to FL...definitely a "gun chick", but also a "sun chick" now that I'm in FL!

Thanks for entering me in your giveaway. I'll be back to post after I post your giveaway on my blog!

merium said...

It's sunny here today~how can ya not be smiling when the sun's out!

And a big boo and hiss to mean people!

kpmattingly said...

One thing that made me smile today was my husband coming home from work this morning. He's been in and out all morning but will be home for the afternoon and evening. I can't wait to spend time with him. :)

Finding Charm said...

I smiled today when I read an article about the Olympics. It was about Shaun White and his coach and how the TV picked up some 'bad' words. It made me laugh.

I'm a beach chick! That's where I find my peace and perspective.

Julie said...

I am trying to teach my boys - "If you can't say something nice, then don't say nothing at all."

I am sorry you are in a "funk" because of what someone said.

Try to take a little time for yourself and see if that helps.

BTW, I am a Blog Chick.

Lynn said...

Oh how fun! Your post today totally made me smile today. : D

Amy Priddy :||: Priddy Creations said...

Sorry you are in a funk. :( Hopefully your weekend will go much better and you will be around nicer people.

One thing that made me smile.......I was blogging about my crazy upcoming schedule and came across a picture of my middle child from 2 years ago. Man she has grown. They just grow too fast.

Hang in there!

Amy Priddy :||: Priddy Creations said...

I retweeted. :D

Erica said...

oh beki you're so sweet! i don't know who could be mean or negative to you! shame on them ;)

one thing that made me smile today was the sweet way sean ran up to me when we got up this morning and hugged me so tightly saying "i love you mommy!!"

another is the beautiful blue skies and sunshine outside

another was seeing i lost 1.3 lbs

another was thinking about the goodness of God no matter what

ok, so i left more than one, sorry ;)

Michelle said...

You can't have rainbows with out rain, use it as an excuse to jump in the puddles - and hopefully drench the not nice people :)

SugarberrySensations said...

Awwww, Beki, Beki, Beki - you cheer up now girl, please be a HAPPY CHICK, I miss my HAPPY CHICK, but you know what? I totally, totally, totally understand!

I'm happy most ALL the time, but there are sometimes, especially if I find out that I 'think' somebody does not like me, it crushes me, my world just FALLS apart, I hate the thought that somebody wouldn't like me! I know that isn't possible ~ to live your life without somebody not liking you, but it just kills me!

Pooey on the person that made you feel this way - please know that for that one person - there are hundreds that do LOVE you!!!!!!=)

You just take a break, ok? Just step back for awhile, you have a lot going on right now, the farm, all you have just done for Haiti, you are an AMAZING woman! You deserve a break, a time to reflect, to realize what a WONDERFUL WOMAN you ARE!

I'm going to Facebook you, Tweet You, Blog You and Comment you!

I love this necklace, I love your work, you know that!

From me,
♥Clay Chick♥

Stephanie said...

Today I was a bit grumpy from a toothache...dentist appt in 2 wks...and had my little girl with me at Hobby Lobby shopping for supplies to make hairbows. I always let my daughter pick out some scrapbook ribbon mini rolls that she'd want me to make hairbows for her. She was trying to decide and I was trying to rush her so we could get back home. A woman came up to me and said, "She's such a good little girl, I'd like to give her this." And handed me $5. She said for her to pick out whatever she wanted. I thought it was so sweet of her and told her she didn't have to do that but she insisted. My daughter was thrilled and picked out ribbon with robots, ribbon with cheetah prints & 2 Valentines Day pens with sparkly hearts & maribou on them. It made me stop and forget about the dull ache from my bum tooth and smile at the choices my little girl made. =)

Sara @ Our Best Bites said...

Oh, your week sounds like mine! Only to cope you are being kind and giving away pretty things and I am just being grumpy, lol.

Love the necklace- I think I'd be a "Chocolate Chick"! haha

Today I did get a good smile and a laugh in when my 4 year old asked me what Sid the Science Kid was. I told him he was just a kid who liked to do science experiments and he replied, "No Mom, like WHAT is he? Animal? Or Monster?"

haha I can always count on my kiddos for a smile!

Shore Debris said...

I am definitely a "beach chick" although, my husband would find it cooler if I were the "gun chick" because he's definitely a "gun dude" - and the reason that our gun safe is larger than the fridge (no, I am not joking).

I smiled today when the alarm went off way too early and my husband got up and told me to stay and sleep, he'd worry about making lunches... then he volunteered to go register my car for me. Made me wonder exactly what I did to get so lucky.

Erica said...

I'm so sorry for a bad week. I had one of those a couple weeks ago. It wasn't pretty.

I had to smile today as Calvin tromped sraight to the mirror after putting on his undies today to just admire them. He was so proud to sport those babies. he told both his nanny and my language teacher what kind he was wearing before he even said hello. Sometimes I wish elmo underwear could make my day.

Amy said...

I had to get a replacement driver's license today.

I was not thrilled. Plus, I had to take the 3 girls with me. Even less thrilled.

Unbelievably, the lady was nice to me, my kids were great, AND the picture turned out wonderfully.

That made me smile.

Psst... I would be a "Fashion Chick" ;)

The Sieberts said...

i'm a 'mom' chick! :) hehe

Chad and Jody said...

What made me happy today? The sun! I cleaned the house, rearranged the living room furniture, put up some decorations I've been putting off nailing into the wall, and the two kids I stayed home with today are napping! That's what makes me happy today! :)

Kelly said...

I had a friend take me out shopping (she even payed). She basically reworked my whole wardrobe. Today I got to show off new outfit! I also got to got to MOPS! I has truly saved my sanity.

I know what you mean about mean people. I was nearly in tears yesterday when i was trying to figure out some insurance stuff. YUCK!

Adrienne said...

Lots of things made me smile today...especially when I walked in to my 2 year old's room and he said, "mama pretty"...well more like puhwitty, but I knew what he meant! :)
Have a great day!

jen christians said...

I wish I was a "gun chick" but frankly guns scare me! I too have been in a "funk" lately too! HMMM I wonder what it is. But something that made me smile today, was when my middle boy got off the bus, he threw his arms around me for a big hug... that's it, just that hug!!!

Shore Debris said...

I put the giveaway on my blog, too!

suburban prep said...

While I was talking on the phone with my mother who was sitting for my one yr old nephew, he started to yell like he didn't like it that grandma's attention was not on him. He likes to be the center of attention.
I started laughing too. My mother put me on speaker so that he could then be part of the conversation.

shirley said...

My smile today came via my 3 yo who asked me for a piece of chocolate and then winked at me as I think to me extra incenitive to give it to him. It worked!
I think my necklace would have to say sweet chick.

Amy said...

So sorry you're in a funk. Hope something makes you smile soon! Lunch with a friend during my hectic work day made me smile. I would either be a girly chick or a monogram chick :)

Martha said...

Hmmm...definitely beach chic!!! YOu are so nice...because I have had the exact same week...I don't do well with that either...too much of people not being nice this week:)
Anyway ~ back to the point, right...

one thing that made me smile...I know this may sound bad...my youngest isn't feeling well...and she started to cry with her little pony tail in her hair...and I laughed because she looked so darn cute...even though the non-stop crying is driving me to extra caffeine!

The Perfect Trio said...

i'm in a funk too!

i think i need a necklace that says "funky chick".

or, i could go with "a soldier's chick". would that fit?

hmmm...

i love your blog!

Kelly said...

The sun made me smile today!

I am a 'Deaf chick'

Hope you are out of your funk today after reading those cool comments. Mwah! xo

Take Care...Kristin

Signs and Salvage said...

Adding you to my BLOG:):) Thank you for the giveaway...you rock!!

Heather at All A Flutter said...

Maybe there is something in the air because I've been feeling that way, too. Sick of the yucky people I keep running into. Just thinking of what I'd put on a sweet little necklace like this is enough to get a smile back on my face. I would pick Blessed Chick cause no matter how many grumpy gus' I run into my life is still very, very blessed. Thanks...that was fun!!

Mary said...

it's been a funny day and not a lot has gone right today but one thing that made me smile in spite of the hard day was that a little girl who had gone missing earlier today was found unharmed and returned to her mom...

Stacey said...

What a fun idea. The girls at work cracked me up a few times today so I guess I'm lucky. Lucky Chick.

amy said...

Seeing the joy on my daughter's faces when I told them that I was going to take them to the McDonald's playhouse tonight for supper! They were so excited (b/c I don't like McD's!) that it made me smile. :)

Funky Junk Interiors said...

GUN chick?!? LOL!!!! Hilarous.

I think that made me happy.

Sorry you're having an off day.

Mine would read Funky Chick of course. :)

Hmm.. I just talked myself into REALLY WANTING this.

CarzooCritters said...

I have been in a funk lately myself! I wish you well =)

I smiled today because I finally got my address in LA and I move across country on Monday! I also smile because I get to go bowling with all my friends today!

I have to say I am an ANIMATING CHICK! I love to animate =)

DanaMc said...

I would have to say I'm a "Camping Chick." And, that's what made me smile today. We're making camping reservations tonight for an upcoming trip. Big smile!

Thanks for the giveaway. I'm also offering a giveaway. It ends tonight (Thursday) midnight. Easy-peasy entry. http://cookingatcafed.blogspot.com/2010/02/giveaway-last-day.html

Mandi said...

My baby crawled all the way up the steps by himself today! And if that wasn't enough reason for me to smile, he's going to stay with my parents for 2 nights so my husband and I can spend some alone time together (for the first time since November!)

Suzy Q said...

My daughter's face when she got to show me the awards that she won at the school awards assembly today! So proud of her!

Lisa said...

Actually several blog posts (including yours) made me smile! It's why I love blogging! I think I'd have to be blogging chick!! I do like to smile when I blog. And I had one evening I was visiting around and half my friends had really really bad days, I WANT to hear it too! Really bad made me cry days. But it is life and if that is all you can think that day tell me. It is super fun to smile at the silly and happy but life has to be even and that includes the bad. I am sorry people have been mean to you. There is no reason for it.
Big hugs HUGS!!!
Lisa

Pfeiffer Photos said...

Art Chick. Vintage Chick. That's me. Will tweet your giveaway post haste. I so get the funk thing...ditto for me; great remedy by you!

Erica said...

Watching Dumb and Dumber quotes pile up on on my friend's Facebook account after she quoted one line. Friends who all think alike make me smile!

I hope that your frown turns upside down soon and you become a Happy Chick like me again!

willblogforshoes said...

Just read a very long, very encouraging email from a blight friend. It made me smile.

willblogforshoes said...

I just retweeted your tweet.

Shealynn said...

Today I am a tired chick. :)

My kids are pretty good at making me smile. Most of the time. haha.

Thanks for the giveaway! Things will turnaround!

Hana said...

Cheer up...we all have downer days...guess thats part of life. I hope things start looking up tomorrow!! Thanks for the giveaway! I'd love to have a photo chick necklace...although OCD perfectionist, crafty, chocolate eatin, photo takin, shabby chic lovin, crazy bird lady chick works too! Might be too much to stamp though. Anyway, to answer your question, my 4 yr old daughter made me smile today when she laid her head on my arm and said "mommy I love you soooo much" for no real reason other than that's what she was feeling. Makes me feel like I must be doing something right, ya know?! Happy days!

Tonya said...

I got to take my 8wk old nephew's pictures today! His naked, chubby little self just melted my heart!

Sorry you're having a hard time!

Wendy said...

Today my daughter and I went to the zoo with a little boy from her class and his mom. He's a sweet little guy with a ton and a half of energy. Whenever we came to stairs or when we were crossing the parking lot, he'd take my daughter's hand to help her along and make sure she was okay. Sweet, huh?

Renae said...

I'm very sorry anyone would be rude to you!

The simple but happy thing today was my daughter wants to keep both skirts I made to sell today. She wanted them and didn't want me to sell the samples.

I would be "sewing chick" or being a huge hockey fan "hockey chick". I don't look anything like a hockey player so it would be obvious I'm a fan and not a player. LOL

Hugs!

B said...

My daughter made me smile today. She wanted to play in the snow, so like a big girl (she JUST turned 6), she bundled herself up in her snow gear and headed out to the back yard. I am NOT a snow fan and watched her through the kitchen window. Want to know what I saw? Her rolling a snow ball, bigger and bigger. Then another one a little smaller that she put on top of the first. Then a slightly smaller one....she built herself a snowman! I captured a few pictures without her even knowing it. She found sticks for the arms and even somehow managed to find some stones for a face. She was so proud of herself!!! And that made me smile more than anything!

keepingthemistakes said...

My students being excited about TEXTURE today made me smile :)

jennifer said...

I hope you feel better soon! (I know you're not 'sick'!! ;-) It's ok to feel the way you're feeling...you're so real and that's AWESOME!

I think 'mama chick' or 'crazy chick' for me!

Thanks!

Jennifer

jennifer said...

oh...it was many crazy kiddos that made me smile today with their funny sayings!

emtdlb said...

My boss gave me a compliment at my morning job, my after-school kids got along (always a bonus!), my daughter snuggled up with me this evening while I practiced a clarinet solo I have in a concert on Monday coming up, and finished the evening with a great chat with the worlds best sis-in-law! A few of my *smiles* today. Great looking stuff!

jennifer said...

I'm following you on twitter and retweeted!

Allison said...

Listening to my 4 year old sing in the car, watching my 7 year old lost in a book, seeing Mt. Hood driving home from work on a sunny day:) "Music Chick" for me:)

~~Mia~~ said...

I absolutely love Happy Chick :) What a fabulous necklace!!!

AND I wanted to tell you, so I will right now ~ that I received my "Blessed" necklace the other day and I only take it off to shower, I *heart* it to pieces!!!!

I'm really sorry you are in a funk and people aren't being nice. Some people are haters just cuz you are fabulous so don't take it personally and just remember that they are jealous because they are not awesome like you are!!!! :) :)

It made me smile tonight when Canada won the Olympic hockey game :) It also made me smile when I woke up with my dh (you see the reason that makes me smile is because he works away and is gone for 2 weeks a time..so today is the first day I woke up with him in over 2 weeks, so that made me smile) It also made me smile today that we met some friends for a fabulous Greek lunch!

I had a great day and I have lots of things to smile about!

Thanks for the wonderful giveaway! :D :D

Diana said...

I've tried to win necklaces like this for months! LOL! So, here goes....

One thing that made me smile today was the sunshine we had for, oh, maybe 10-15 minutes. I'm waiting for Spring, so I can do my thing, and garden in the warm sun, sun, SUN!

I'm thinkin' maybe "gramma chick"... or "ducky chick" {grandkids call me gramma ducky}... or maybe "garden chick" !

Diana said...

... and I've tweeted it... which btw is my FIRST tweet ever...

http://twitter.com/knzus

Christina said...

My kids (the bigger ones) cleaned my daughter's room tonight on their own, and they were very proud. It made me smile.
I'm not sure what kind of chick I am...maybe crazy.

Luisa @ Dance in my garden said...

After a bad day yesterday, (my husband fell off his pushbike, broke his elbow, and other bits are really sore),
today I took my little girl to have her immunisation, and she didn't cry at all - she was totally besotted by the stickers and lollies they gave her!
That really made me smile!
Then I took her out for milkshake, she's such a poppet. I love her so much.

Luisa @ Dance in my garden said...

I have just finished doing a post on current blog-giveaways (there does seem to be a lot going on at the moment!), and so I have included your give-away in this post.

thanks!

cookwithbarb said...

I'm a Mom Chick-I will now always be a mom forever, but I will always be my hubbie's Chick-

Love your blog, I frequent often-I thought of getting a necklace sometime and this offer popped up, I would love to have one.

I love seeing military families at the airport waiting for their soldiers to return home and come off the jetway-flags, balloons, flowers, banners, it is amazing and puts a smile on my face everytime to know what an incredible journey they have returned from, but the embrace of the familiar~ that is so HAPPY!

cookwithbarb said...

Jessie said...

I have recently found an awesome idea and have decided to start my own business. I'm sooo pumped about it I can't contain myself. I would definately call myself...Entrepreneur Chick. LOVE IT!!

Miller Racing Family said...

The thing that was great about today was that the sun was out. It has been snowing and cold for almost three weeks. Today it was in the 50's and full sun. Let's just say we didn't want to come inside.
Thanks for the chance!

gina said...

It was warm yesterday- almost 40- we drove with the windows open! And could stroll store to store at our local open air mall.

The peek at the impending spring season is making me happy!

The snow made me smile. :-)

Julie said...

And I am in a funk today today... praying you get out of yours as I am praying God to get me out of mine too :)

justastonesthrowaway said...

Quirky Chick

I don't know how to tweet!
(Sniff sniff)

I hope you aren't funky anymore!

Mary B said...

Hmmm....I like Godly chick, Cooking chick put need something with more of a ring to it :) Perhaps in honor of my hubby Jim's chick?

Yard By Yard Knits said...

I had a day off from work today which definitely made me smile! And I just got a written appraisal on my engagement ring and was shocked by how much a family heirloom can be worth!

GrammaGrits said...

Today I got my plaster splint off and went to a rocking boot - PTL! I broke two bones in my ankle and sprained it badly six, yes, six weeks ago today. Thanks to my DH who has worked and helped in more ways than I can name. Lord willing, four weeks and then I go to a lacing brace and a REAL shoe - yah!

Deanne said...

ok I will be honest, it has been a horrible week and weekend at work and today was not much better so when I pulled up your blog what made me happy today was the chick necklace!
I am either a scrap chick or a beach chick!Thanks for making me happy!

Cherry Tree Lane said...

My daughter says the word "chocolate" clear as a bell. That makes me happy.

(She's two).

Would love to win this. "Vintage Chick" is what mine will say!

Rachel said...

YOu're so very talented. I hope this cheers you up xoxo

Finding this giveaway made me smile.
I bought one of your ball markers for my husband and would love one of your necklaces for myself. Me?
I'm a beach girl and am so totally sick of the cold.

I found this quote you might like since you've said people haven't been very nice...
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

I am a bead chick, mama chic and sometimes a bit*h chick lol. Today I smiled when my daughter came home from her Gma's flashed me a huge toothless smile and waved. (She's 8 month). Awesome!
I hope you get out of your funk and I don't know why but other people suck. They just hate to see anyone else doing well. Your stuff is beautiful so don't let 'em get ya down.

No idea if this is still open but I still wanted to comment. Love your stuff and I think this "chick" necklace is such a great idea! I hope the rest of your week and weekend went better, in spite of all of the house-pain. Personally, I guess I'm probably a "crafty chick".

Today I watched my daughter cover herself in mashed potatoes at dinner, then she looked at me and said "Happy Baby"... At 17mo I think it not only made me happy today but for the next week!

I am "Awesome Chick"... some days I forget that and need a reminder but Im still awesome none the less :)

I love this giveaway!

Something that made me smile today? I've been smiling all day! Today is the day I'll be getting my Nikon SLR, I couldn't be more excited!

It's hard to limit my chick-being into one category ;)
I've been thinking art chick, creative chick, nerdy chick, maybe blogging chick or maybe even since I've made my decision on the whole Nikon-Canon battle thing, I should get a Nikon chick necklace :P

Thanks for giving one away!

Love the necklace!!!!
I'm a claying chick:) LOL

what made me smile....hmmm like yourself i've been having a hard time finding a reason to smile....
2010 hasn't been to friendly to our family and it just seems like its been one thing after another....
but through it all I know its making me a stronger person. Life is full of challenges and learning to over come them.
the one thing that made me smile today was the sweet little snowflakes that kissed my face this morning when I took my daughter to school. I know its the simplest thing and I am soooooo sick of winter but it was just a calm snow and it was pretty refreshing!
Hugs sweetie!!!
