I love alliteration. I hate coming up with titles. I think I just may overthink it, but I don't like to spell out in the title what my whole post is going to be about. At least I don't want to say it without a bit of mystery. That being said, it is possible to be annoyingly cryptic. Don't you just hate it when someone posts something on Facebook like, "So excited, " and then waits for all her friends to ask her why?!
I guess if I were like that I could say something here like, "Giveaway today," and then when you ask where, I could send you to Suzanne at TheJoyfulChaos who is celebrating five years of blogging this week. I don't even remember how I discovered her blog, but it was one of those links that went immediately to my favorites list and has stuck around through my frequent maniacal weeding out. (I am so not a pack rat. I can't even stand to keep too many lists on my computer.)
Anyway, Suzanne is a mama of five like me and I literally spent hours reading through some of her old posts when I was a weepy, insecure postpartum mama in the days and nights after Alaine was born. Her words soothed me in a rough patch of time. She's pretty funny, too.
Today is Day 5 of her celebration and series of giveaways. Today she is giving away a copper wire necklace that I made. Well, I haven't made it yet, but I will.
I made this one for myself with five eggs and I made another for my sister-in-law with three eggs and I'll make one for the winner with however many eggs they have in their little homey nest. So go say hello to Suzanne and celebrate with her and laugh and be encouraged. And sign up to win my necklace, too.
