Celebrating 'Merica + Inspire Swap

Freedom Huddle Merica on 3

First let's jus take a moment to celebrate the awesomeness of our freedom here in the United States. It's pretty amazing what we are capable of as a nation. And I know I'm never going to agree with our government's decisions all the time, but it could be worse, ya know? I know I'm going to celebrate by eating burgers and hot dogs, enjoying an adult beverage or two, and hang out in our little back yard oasis.

Next up, the Inspire Swap reveal!

A few weeks ago, I signed up to participate in a blogger swap hosted by Rachel at The Rachel Way. I'm always looking to connect with other bloggers and this seemed like a really great way to do so. I got paired up with Nina from Adventures of the K Family and I really enjoyed getting to know her through her blog. She's been to some amazing places and her dog is freaking adorable.

I'm a little late to the reveal party because like me, Nina is trying to balance school work, married life, and a blog. It's a tough row to hoe! I completely understand. But when I opened my box I was so excited. She got me, she really got me. My favorite part was the sweet note she included. Nina is truly a thoughtful and inspirational person.

In my box was an Inspire quote plaque, an inspirational flip book to display on my side table, a journal with a matching note pad, two amazingly scented candles, post-its, a cute Paris pocket sized note pad, and highlighters. She knows how much I love my office supplies! Thank you so much Nina!
