We hope that everyone is having the best beginning to 2014 & that all of your hopes, dreams & wishes for this new year are starting off just right. I am happy to report that my word of the year
, “present,” has really helped me be in the moment with Waverly Maye more than ever. We have made some changes to our daily routine & schedule to allow for more focused
time with her. I can’t wait to share details soon, I have had some of my best moments with this sweet girl yet. 🙂
Today, I am SO very excited to share with you a new weekly link-up I am hosting with my dear friend, Jess from Sadie Sky Boutique.
It fits in perfectly with being present in this year, it couldn’t come at a better time! “It’s the Little Things” will officially kick-off one week from today, next Wednesday, January 29th.
This beautiful logo was created by Tosha at Hello Tosha Designs to represent the idea behind this project & she captured our idea perfectly. Jess & I wanted a special place to document some of the sweet little moments that make us stop & truly appreciate life. The moments that make even the totally crazy days worth it! A place to be reminded that it’s not “stuff”& perfectly executed plans & projects that matter, but rather that “it’s the little things” that count. We want to take more time to slow down, spend true quality time with our girls, & make as many sweet memories with them as we can. And like others, we want to do it without getting caught up in social media & comparing ourselves to everyone else. Our plan is to highlight the little things like having a sweet mommy & daughter lunch or a craft project. And especially those sweet mama moments we know so well, like when our little one melts our heart when she waves hello & says “hiiii” to the birds at the park.
We would love if you would join us, here is what you need to know:
1. Starting next Wednesday, January 29th, share ANY “little thing” you would like! Look back through old pictures to include or even just share a sweet memory that you haven’t forgotten! That is what makes this so easy, who doesn’t have those heart-melting mama moments to share?
2. Help spread the word by linking back to Sadie Sky Boutique or to myself! The button will be available on both of our blogs as well a digital download at Hello Tosha Designs as a pretty reminder that “It’s the Little Things that Count.”
3. We will also be posting photos on Instagram using the hashtag #littlethingslinkup to share some of our sweet moments (they could be anything!) whenever we have one to share. We thought that would not only be a great way to get some encouragement & inspiration, but also a fun way for non-bloggers to participate in the project as well!
4. In celebration of our kick-off, we have several amazing shops lined up to offer giveaways for some really great items … everything from a copy of the artwork download, items for mamas, clothing & accessory items for little ones & more!
We are so excited about this project & would love, love, LOVE for you to join us.
Thank you all for so much support in this exciting project!! We have already had so much positive feedback & it means the world to us. Meet us back here one week from today for the start of many giveaways & head over to Instagram NOW to join in on the fun with the hashtag #littlethingslinkup!
