Favorite Things: Handwriting Gift

Happy New Year!  Since it is a new year I wanted to start a new series. In this new series I want to outline favorite products of mine new and old!

Since it is the New Year I am starting with something new.  I have wanted this product for while and finally sat down to purchase one for both my brother and myself for Christmas.

I have to start by saying I think sometimes God sends signs in such funny ways and you can’t help but smile. After my mom passed away I had seen the idea of handwriting gifts.  Luckily, I had some things she had written now I just needed to find someone to do it.  In came google and what do you know the first site that came up was Lauren Nicole Gifts. For those of you who don’t know me personally my name is Lauren Nicole.  I know my mom MUST have been smiling down when I was searching.  So I found this great company and sent my order in.

It was super easy and turn around was great! They do all kinds of great gifts (keychains and jewlery) with handwriting on it! You can even shrink baby footprints and they can etch it in!

Here is what I got!

PS The packaging was SUPER cute but of course I forgot to take a picture.

#100daysofhappiness: Day 59

Looking through old pictures is such a fun activity for me.  WIth the popularity of social media post like throwback Thursday and flashback Friday it gives me an excuse to show off some of my favorites! The picture below I don’t remember but it reminds me of so many stories my parents and grandparents have told me about myself from when I was a toddler.

My nickname was “squirrel” from my Grandpa and it was because as a child I had no fear.  Climbed onto or into everything around me.  For those of you who know me know that the irony in me being a no fear child.  I do take risk but my “risk management” side has definitely come out.

You can see how happy I am just by climbing into a basket and I think pure happiness or children is so amazing to see!

Also, side note if I ever become a celebrity and they show “childhood” pictures of me you would totally know it was me.  I have looked exactly the same (except for a little more hair) since I was a baby!
