Oh Mondays...

How I usually despise you...but you have suprised me today! I look forward to reading my daily blogs over my lunch hour and I found some amazing things from some even more amazing people!!
Jamie from had a blog party all day last week and I won one of these:

She is such a fun girl and I have really loved getting to know her through her blog! How am I going to decide which one I want?

Janel from wrote the most amazing post yesterday that really hit home with me. I too tend to buy things I don't need and they end up just sitting around our house. This weekend was pretty successful in the closet department. I am happy to report that I filled up two huge trash bags full of clothes and shoes to take to our local thrift store! If you haven't already started reading Janels blog it is a MUST! She is such a doll and is SUPER talented. Her journals are so some of my favorites ever. (The page below is from her Autumn Journal)

And of course these girls from RVA who I just adore! They are so adorable and super sweet! I love how they have been able to acheive so many of their dreams.

Check out their shop at I <3 it!!!!

Oh... and I got my first handwritten letter from my dear friend Leslie on Saturday! I honestly can't remember the last time I received a handwritten letter. I beleive it was 10 plus years ago when I first moved away for college. Yikes... I can't even begin to think that I have been out of school that long! Leslie and I lost touch while we were in grade school and found each other recently through facebook! I think I cried when I found her! I am going to make sure and write her one back asap! I am looking forward to it! I think we should all make a pact to at least write one letter a month to someone special! Who is in with me?? It is a lost art that needs to be revived!!

So...Happy Monday to everyone! I hope if your Monday isn't that great that you can find some happiness in one of these amazing bloggers!!

You made me laugh when I looked in my blog list and saw my own silly picture! =)
Thanks for the sweet words! Those are available in my etsy shop but I'm going to make one just for YOU!!! ;)
Great post. I love Janel too. She's one of my very favorite people in the world! That post got me too!
Hope your week is off to a great start!!!

I love handwritten mail too. I hate that it's not so popular now, due to the internet, but man getting something in the mail always makes my day!!!
