pics with Dave + the giveaway

Thanks so much to Barb & Jon who took pictures of us while they were here. I adore this picture of our hands.


11 years later and here we are...on this journey of life together. There is no one else I would rather be with.

p.s. Dave got me the scarf from World Market- I want to hang it on my wall it is so cute.


(yes, in order to enter the giveaway, you have to view our entire photo shoot :)




you make me laugh...you make me smile....

there is only one thing that comes between us..........


DIET COKE!!!


sara + dave forever

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
I am excited about this giveaway- because it is stuff I love! I also love my readers- thanks for your support and encouragement! It means so much.

2 prizes!!!! For 2 winners!!!!!

[#1]
a framed 8x10 photo of Dave & I (just kidding!!! just kidding hahaha)

1 apples for teachers (a favorite devotional, good for anyone- not just teachers)
1 yard of the red polka dot fabric from The Whimsy Cottage!!!!! (given by Sara of the Whimsy Cottage- thank you :)


{#2}

1 apples for teachers
1 lavendar eye pillow from stitching in striped socks!!!!!
(This little pillow is made with dried lavender and flax seed. To help relax after a stressful day place eye pillow in a ziplock bag and place in freezer for 30 min. Remove from bag, place over eyes, sit back, relax and enjoy!)

I bought this from Steph's adorable etsy shop along with another star....


LOVE the stars- and I can't bear to give the star away- and I can hardly bear to give the pillow away, it is so cute- but that is how much I love my readers! And I didn't tell Steph I was doing this- I wasn't going to tell Sara about the fabric either, it just slipped out...and she insisted on donating a yard of fabric so I could keep mine :)

I just saw that Steph has more stars in the shop! Cute, cute, & cute. (and bibs!!!)

Just leave me a comment telling me anything and in 4 days I will randomly pick 2 names. If you become a new follower to my blog you will get an extra entry (leave another comment telling me you follow).

I don't need any of these things (though they are SOOO cute) but wanted to say that the photos of you and Dave are lovely. You are an adorable couple!!!!!!

Debby said...

Great pictures. Would love to see ones of your children but I know how parents feel about not showing pictures.
A little story.....when my husband and I were dating he always held my hand. One day I thought, will he do this when we are older. The other day at my 4 year old granddaughters' soccer game we were leaving and my son saw us holding hands and said something about it. Yes, he still holds my hand and we will soon be married 40 years.......So treasure that picture and keep on holding one anothers hand.

I LOVE the pictures of you and adve - us parents do not get pictures of each other often enough! My favorite...you guessed it - the Diet Coke one. That is so Dave with the big red cup (everyone knows what is in that cup).

You do the best give aways...thanks for sharing all of your favorite things with your friends!

I painted a couple of pictures this weekend. Whenever I do that I can't help but think of the one who inspired me to paint! I try so hard not to copy anything you've done, but I sure do love your style!! And my husband loves that we have hand crafted painting around the house!

I was reading tonight to the kids and there was a Quote... My hubby said you have to paint that somewhere. Well I don't paint so here's the quote..."Childern are like misquitoes -the minute they stop making noises you know ther are getting into something."
We were sitting around a family with the skeeter and our 4 kiddos.
