Happy 4th of July, friends! I am so seriously tired today, but I'm trying to get some sort of patriotic excitement going. (slowly waves a tiny flag while sipping coffee)
So, I had two cool things happen this week: FIRST, My cousin-friend Kelly started a bucket list blog before her 33rd birthday called Thirty Three Things. It reminded me of my 2016 goals for the year, and I realized I'd be slacking on my resolution to lift others up. In fact, I feel like I've actually had more days of just trying to keep myself afloat than being there for others... but I guess that's young mom-life for ya. SECOND, My awesome buddy Sarah left a secret, out-of-the-blue package on my doorstep filled with an encouragement letter and the gifts pictured above. I haven't read them yet, but you know that sea salt chocolate is already opened. Has anyone else read either of those books?
So all of this made me think of a challenge for this holiday...
If you happen to see this post, tag a female friend on social media and write what is so great about them here in the comments! Writing your encouraging thought on Instagram or Facebook is cool too, but I'd love to see all of the encouragements saved here in one place!
If you get tagged you have to tag someone new... Yes, 1998 chain-mail style! I ain't ashamed.
I'll start with Kelly & Sarah since they inspired this post!
LET'S GO, AMERICAN GIRLS (and non-American too, of course!)
