I didn’t blog much this week or take any pictures for the weekly link up. But I have super good reasons why.

My sister and brother in law adopted a brand new baby girl this week!!!!!

After years and years of waiting to adopt a newborn, they were blessed to be matched a few months ago, and my sister was able to be at the birth of this precious little girl and stay with her at the hospital. It was such an emotional bittersweet weekend. I’ve learned adoption is never easy. I have a new perspective and a huge respect for birth parents who give up their children so they can have a better life.

Back in 2012 I had an adoption fundraiser party online for them, right here on this blog. For those of you who still read this blog, they have had that money just sitting in their savings account, waiting for this day! So thank you for giving so generously.

The little girl they adopted is absolutely beautiful. I’m not sure I’ve seen a more perfect newborn baby! God is SO good!!

We have been able to go see them several times, and I’ve been on the phone with my sister a lot. 🙂 It’s an exciting time for our whole family, and I have to get in line with all my children just to hold this little girl! 🙂

In other news…..the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle Flash Sale is here for 48 hours only!! Wahoo!

This is my absolutely favorite bundle of the year, and the only one that I throw myself into sharing about. Why? Because it’s always so, so good. And helpful. And encouraging. And…the list could go on. 🙂

Not sure what the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is? You can check out why I’m raving about it here.

This exact bundle goes away after Tuesday and you will never see this bundle again! Every year it’s always different products included, so grab it while you can! And did I mention that our Well Ordered Kitchen Basic version is available in this Bundle?

Don’t forget about the awesome special that I offered earlier this year! I’ll do it again for the 48 flash sale, and it’s a pretty sweet deal.

Purchase the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle on this blog and then fill out this google form to claim your bonus!  If you decide to get the free Flexi Clip, you do pay $3.00 to cover shipping costs.

  1. OH my goodness!! I am beyond happy for your family! A new daughter, niece, and cousin! Congrats to your sister and family! I cannot even begin to fathom this journey and its struggles. You brought up a good point about the birth parents, it cannot be easy to give up your child for a better life.

  2. My husband and I adopted a baby boy in April. I have thought of your sister as we walked similar journeys. Please congratulate her from another recent adoptive mom!

  3. It is always a pleasure to link up with you. Thank you for all you do to bring bloggers together. I invite you to join me at #OverTheMoon, #WonderfulWednesday and #ThursdayFavoriteThings. Have a great week!
