The "Tell Your Story Giveaway"

I am so excited to finally let you all in on the awesome giveaway we have been planning for the past month!!

Before I share the details, I want to explain the name and why we decided to go with this perticular giveaway.

We knew we wanted to do some sort of giveaway, but we didn't know what. We contemplated an Ipad, but then one evening the idea for this fundraiser hit me!

As you know, I have been extremely stressed lately with school and have not been the most pleasant person to live with (You are amazing Ryan Maxwell!)

One thing that helps me through the really tough days is when I take a break from everything, go over to our little shelf, take out our shutterfly photo books, and look through them. It never fails to lift my spirits and change my attitude from one of poor me, boo hoo, to Come what may, my God is good and this life He's given me is crazy beautiful!

For those of you who do not know, I am a Shutterfly addict! I have six other books that are completed, but are just waiting till we have the money to order them.

There are two main reasons why I love Shutterlfy so much...

#1 I am a photo junkie!! I had to break Landon's first year into three albums because I took at least 10 pictures for every day of his existence.

My camera is practically a part of me.

I really think for the first couple months of his life Landon believed his mama had one huge black eye that zoomed in and out (poor child)

Shutterfly gives me a way to organize and document every memory and it is SO easy!!

#2 Shutterfly believes every person has a story worth telling and I agree wholeheartedly!!

The shutterfly motto is "Tell Your Story" I love that!! We only get one precious life to live on this Earth so lets make it count and lets capture each beautiful moment so that we never forget how truly blessed we are.

How do you do that you ask?
