Just Spreading Some Love

Good morning, loves! Notice anything different around these parts?

Yep, full-on blog redo! I know I change it around a lot here, but i can't help it! I like change. You understand, don't you? I hope you like it! I also created a new button. Yes, did it all by myself!! So, go on and grab it and spread the love!


Today I just want to show some love! I'm feeling a little sappy, apologies. I had the most wonderful phone date with a blog bestie last night, and she made me feel so warm and fuzzy. Now I just want to show you all some love!

I know I say this a lot, but this community that we have built here warms my heart everyday. Thank you all so much for being so sweet, genuine, and adorable.


I usually do my 'blog crush' post separately, but I thought I would include it here today. How does that sound?


Alright, time to announce the ladies (and this time one gent) that have recently stolen a little piece of my heart with their bloggy! You can check out the other 'crush' posts here and here. Go on, check 'em out!

Mama Pea creates these adorable drawings inspired by the moments that she shares with her baby 'Sweet Pea' and her hubby. How fun are these?

A recent fashion graduate, this southern belle blogs about all things fabulous, fun and fashionable!

Mary loves sewing, quilting  and collecting beautiful fabric. Her blog chronicles her pretty pretty projects!


(Jenny's header)

Jenny found me last week and I simply adore her. You must check out her charming blog! Hi, Miss Jenny!

Marcie is an absolute doll! She has a lovely lifestyle blog where she posts about fashions, celebrities, and her goings-on :)

Well well, it's my first guy blogger! Matt, a necktie guru, emailed me this week about his 'all things tie' website. He does great features such as a tie of the month, funny tie comics and of course 'how-to.' Go visit him please!

I fell fast for these blogs, and I'm certain you will too! Go on and show them some love!

I also want to say thank you to the dolls who have sent me mail recently. Well, some isn't so recent but I hadn't gotten around to sharing these with you.

 Cute little fella from Summer B.

Lilly shift dress in the form of a darling card from Trishy.

Card from Miss Janice that came with my giveaway winnings on custom ABD stationery.

"You're intelligent, talented....and a fabulous shopper. Your turn"

 "You're sensitive, a good listener...and you dress well. Your turn."

I got this in the mail yesterday from my soul sister, Aly. This is so US!

Thank you, ladies, so much for brightening my day! I love LOVE snail mail! 

 I want to take just a minute to show some special kinds of love to two lovely ladies.

First, I don't know if you follow Megan's blog, but she and her husband lost their baby in the last few days. Sweet Cohen was born with a heart defect and simply couldn't fight it. My heart is breaking over and over for Megan and Brent. Please go over and send them some love and support. You can visit Megan's blog or click here to learn more about Cohen's Memorial Trust. 


I've had this elephant posted on my sidebar for a few days. Summer's dad is fighting cancer and because of the oil spill is currently out of work. She has asked her readers to contribute (if they can) to this money drive. Go on over there and check it out. I know she would appreciate it so so much!!

Please send some love to both of these fabulous ladies!


Thank you all for stopping by today for the love fest! 

(Don't forget today is the last day to enter the giveaway!)

Gracious girl, I think you knocked out everything. Haha. I'm sure you're relieved now. I'll have to check out some of your favorite blogs, and I already follow Lemons and Laundry. Love Marcie! As for the latest re-do, I LOVE it! I'm grabbing your button right now.

Hope you have a great Thursday, enjoying Miss Janice's giveaway set!
