Birthday Giveaway!

*insert party emojis here*

I've said it a few times already, but in the one year since I transformed this blog into a more 'official' blog, the reader response has been amazing! I think it will hit 10,000 this month, which calls for a celebration all on its own!

This week I'm giving away some favorites from a few of my favorite 'locals'. 

I met Anna Edwards through Younglife at UGA and she has the beautiful shop called
I've ordered a necklace with my word of the year 'Rooted' stamped on it + now you can have one too! 

Lauren Taylor will always be one of my favorite people to work with - she has designed so many custom invitations for me + I loved every single one of them! She is the lady behind Instead of Ashes and although from Georgia, currently lives in North Carolina. This a sweet little surprise pack she picked just for the winner - I'm a bit jealous of what's inside :-)

Margaret + I met in an Atlanta entrepreneur's group recently. I saw one of her paintings + loved it! When I decided to have a local giveaway, I knew this sweet Georgia artist had to be included + one of y'all needed to have her painting. Check out her other gorgeous paintings!
