. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Thankful

October 20, 2013

Thankful


This weekend we drove up to Door County, WI to spend the weekend with Chris' family.  I'm thankful for a long car ride with Chris, fall weather, fire places, cousins for Addilyn and some good family time.  


I'm also thankful for a good friend to share with you.  I'm blessed yet again to have my sweet friend Sybil from Peace it All Together on my blog today.  There are so many blog friends I've made that I'd love to met in real life and Sybil is probably at the top of the list.  I actually know I'd greatly benefit from a weekly coffee date from her, as she is one of the wisest, encouraging and sweetest woman and I learn quite a lot from her.  I can learn from her as a mom, as a woman of God and someone with great style and cute outfits.

I have to add that originally Sybil wasn't going to do a giveaway with this post but emailed a few days ago and wanted to add one.  Now I think most people (myself included) do a giveaway with the intention and purpose of gaining more readers.  In Sybil's email she told me that she felt like she wanted to "bless someone with a $25 Target giftcard."  Her genuine heart and love for others is so apparent and one of the many reasons why I love her! You will definitely be blessed by getting to know this woman!


Hello, for Lauren and Lauren readers! It is so exciting to be here again.
My name is Sybil and I blog at Peace it all Together.
If you are reading this post, you are most likely a follower of Katie's. If you are a follower of Katie's you probably love her. As one of Katie's many faithful followers, I know I do. 
Since I know you adore Katie and because the purpose of this guest post is for me to introduce myself to you, I thought I would share a few of the ways that Katie and I are alike: 

Similar same taste in clothes
We both...love a good bargain and work in education
Our love for desserts
We are both bad at:  singing, not being annoyed and caring about politics
Our middle name - Jane - named after our grandmothers
We are both...shy kids, turned bloggers
Our tendency to worry and obssess over little things
We are both truth tellers and write from the heart
I would love for you to visit my blog and tell me how you think Katie and I are alike. Hope to see you soon!

I'm happy to have so much in common with her! Another reason that we are alike is our love for Target! And we both know that most of you share the same love so Sybil is giving away one reader a $25 giftcard to Target.  Enter below:


Thanks for entering! The winner will be contacted in a week!
