New Traditions & A World Market Giveaway To Treat Yo'self!

You may have seen and read my heart on my Instagram feed last night. Quiet moments like I had yesterday give me time to reflect on my life and where I am right now and I absolutely love that. I never expected to be married and expecting my first child at 23 years old. Needless to say my heart couldn't be more full with where I am and what God has blessed me with. I finally have the full time job(s) I always wanted, to be a wife and mother.

Going into the holidays this year is a little... bittersweet. This is the last year all of our traditions will be exactly the same. Next year we will be experiencing a whole new world with our son who will be 9 months old. After years of getting a Christmas tree back home in NC on Thanksgiving morning with my dad and siblings, Jon and I will be starting or own tradition of picking out a tree locally with Maddox. Instead of waking up in my families home on Christmas morning with my siblings we will be waking up in our own home watching Maddox experience his first Christmas! Of course we will still visit with our families on the holidays, but it's odd to think about starting our own traditions with our own family that we will carry on for years and Maddox will remember fondly like I do mine and Jon does his. It's so exciting!

Now enough of that mushy, gushy stuff ;-) How about some free money?

One tradition that doesn't change is buying gifts. This time of year it's easy to get distracted with the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, meal prepping and community serving. It's such a wonderful time of year to outwardly focus on others! Myself and 12 other lovely ladies wanted to give YOU a gift. Treat yo'self to a $155 World Market Gift Card! We will let you decide whether you use it on yourself or Christmas gifts for others.

Merry Christmas (early) from all of us to you!

  2. I've been really struggling the last few weeks thinking about how all of my holiday traditions have to change very soon when we have kids. But I totally hate any type of change. I'm sure it will be wonderful for both of us in the end, but I totally get how you are feeling!
