Blessed {Giveaway}

I am blessed. I have been having a hard time lately guys, like really hard. Friday was a low day for me, I spent it shopping with my girls just so I could avoid my dark cloud, and Friday night I got some answers. I have SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). Basically it is seasonal depression, and being here in rainy (gloomy) Portland Oregon doesn't help things. I need to do 3.5 hours per day of light therapy, and after doing it for a couple days let me tell helps! I am so happy to not be feeling so gloomy and sad. I also have the stomach bug that has been going around, it feels not so awesome to be sick, but good to have answers. 

Despite the sickness and SAD-ness I have been feeling I realized this weekend how blessed I really am. On Saturday our neighbors gave us a brand new highchair, seriously barely been used. He runs a junk pickup service and he comes across awesome stuff all the time. I was nervous to lift the pad, but when I did there was not even food under it, I am so excited that my girl gets a new highchair! We went grocery shopping and found everything we needed on sale for at least 50% off, sweet. My girls were angel babies this weekend and my husband was just his usual rockstar self, but I was really happy and it's been awhile. 

I am also blessed with amazing family and friends, especially all my bloggy buddies and today I have one of my favorites Katie she blogs over at Some Eloquent Grafitti and she recently started a blog design site called Scrapcake Designs. I love her designs, and she designed 2 of my favorite bloggers sites, so pretty cool in my book oh and she is super gorgeous. 

Today Katie is giving away The Cheesecake blog design package to one of my readers. 

Katie also made the button for my Worded Wednesday which I LOVE, so really you need to enter this giveaway. Here are some of her previous designs:

If you don't win, Katie is offering 5 of my readers this package at 50% off, so the complete redesign is just $42.50, this is a steal folks just e-mail her at to get yours for half off.

  2. Such an awesome giveaway! Have you checked out the special lights they sell for SAD? I think Costco was carrying them for a while.

  3. So glad you found some answers as to why you were feeling so down. I feel like I experience a bit of seasonal depression every winter. One can only take sitting inside all day while its grey and dark and gloomy and cold outside every single day for so long!
    I think you are terrific, and wonderful, and I value our new friendship so much! xoxo
