a thank you



 It's always amazing to me that people want to read my ramblings (not you, Mom). Writing is something I've always enjoyed, and laughing is like my stretchy pants--just can't live without it. Having a place where I can combine these two and chronicle my wonderful, crazy life with the ol' ball and chain really has been a wonderful experience.

So thank YOU for reading about our wild journey!
I'm offering a $50 Shabby Apple gift card because I'm so grateful for every one of you little gems.

If you haven't heard of Shabby Apple, you need to get on this gravy train. Their site is chalked full of vintage  and lace dresses for any occasion. Their so stylish and flirty, I love them! (My birthday is also next week. Hint, hint, hint.)

I love this lace, scalloped dress. Pink perfection, y'all.
Or this fun polka dot dress!
(Although I doubt I'll be running in a field while wearing it. Ha.)

. . . Convinced yet?
And here's the best part! You're all winners already! All of my readers are receiving 10% their next purchase! Just use the coupon code: recentlyroached10.

Winner will be announced in one week. Good luck!
