Annual survey + Favorite Things Giveaway

Another year of blogging complete, and I just wanted to share how thankful I am for all of YOU. You make this little corner of the internet so.dang.amazing and I hope you know that I’m grateful I am for my circle of virtual BFFs. 

Thank you for being there with me through some of the highest highs and lowest lows of our life as a family. You kept me company during multiple deployments, celebrated our babies being born, held me up during difficult times, made me laugh, and supported me, from your keyboards! I don’t take the work I’m able to do for granted, ever. Even when technology hates me, I’m on a deadline and pulling out my hair, or filming content for the third time in a row because I messed something up, I always remember how fortunate I am. 

Annual survey + Favorite Things Giveaway

Every single day I’m excited to connect with all of you in this space which first began when the Pilot told me to “stop shopping online so much and find a hobby that doesn’t cost anything.” <— lol. The blog has grown and changed so much over the years, and whether you’re an OG blog reader (thank you!!!) or a new friend (hi! welcome!!), I hope you know how much I appreciate you hanging out with me over here. 

Annual survey + Favorite Things Giveaway

Every click, comment, follow, like, product purchase, and pageview directly helps our family and I am sending you so much love and gratitude.

How about a little giveaway?

Each year, I put together some of my favorite products to surprise a lucky reader friend. This year, I’m changing things up a bit and we’ll have 6 different winners! Each winner will get to pick their favorite product from the list below and the next winner will get to choose until we get to end of the list. 

Here are the prizes that are up for grabs:

A pair of my favorite Zella leggings. I wear these constantly; they last forever and fit perfectly. 

– 3 days of Sakara meal deliveries (breakfast and lunch)! These plant-based and gluten-free meals are so fresh and vibrant; I look forward to them every month
