Fave Friday

Hi Lovelies . .  I’m kind of at a loss for words.  This has been a week I won’t ever forget. Yesterday I was with my sweet grandpa as he left this life.  It’s something you can never be prepared for + It’s all still so hard to believe.  My heart is feeling all kinds of cracks today.   I hope to write a little more about this and tell you more about the man I loved so much next week sometime.

In the meantime . . .  Today is my birthday and it would make me ever so happy if you would visit me over at SIMPLE LOVELY (really truly one of my favorite blogs) where I’m being featured on Joslyn’s really great series called Blogger’s Favorites.

Here are my Blogger’s Favorites for Simple Lovely.

Last day to enter the Joss + Main Giveaway.

I’ve never seen these before but feel I now need at least one.

Love these surreal + very stylish photos.

Cool Diaper Bags – like for real!

Have a happy weekend, lovelies.  A winner will be announced on Monday.  And be sure to check back early next week for another great giveaway!

    I am very sorry to hear about your loss. I know exactly how you feel. I was extremely close to my grandpa and when he passed away it was a really hard time for me. Hope you can enjoy your birthday even with the current circumstances.

    Trina, Happy Happy Birthday!!
    I heard about your Grandfather, and I am sorry for your loss. I hope your mother is doing…as good as can be expected. I think it’s incredibly special you were both there with him. We are going through the same thing with my husbands family, and it’s like a roller coaster right now.
    I love your blog, and my Lauryn loves your blog as well. I think she wishes her mom was only as cool as you. I just blog about health food and workouts. Your soo much more her style, she’s recently become a big fan of Nordstroms and the shoe department…hahah :)

    Happy birthday!
    I actually found your blog through the guest post at Simply Lovely. It was beautiful. And I am intrigued because you are a tea lover, like myself :)
