Check out what our girl Val got for us!! FYI, the gift of Starbucks is the gift that just keeps ON giving! And y'know...just so you know.... I DO have a birthday coming up in just under four months! :) It's never too early to start shopping, that's what I always say! :) :)
Every night he brings me a glass of water before bed. He turns off all the lights, double checks the locks, takes Cooper out one more time... and brings me a glass of water before bed. It's his way of taking care of me, of providing for me. Of loving me with his whole heart. And night after night....I take it for granted.
It ALSO just so happens to be his way of breaking my bad habits. You see, every night he USED to bring me a glass of milk before bed. He would turn off all the lights, double check the locks, take C-dawg out one more time, and bring me a glass of milk before bed. And every night, like clockwork, I would drink exactly half of that glass of milk and leave the rest on the nightstand....umm for DAYS!
And yes, dear blog world, I know just exactly and to what degree of how gross I truly am.
So now it's water before bed. Day in and day out, it's become part of the fabric of our lives. The dance that centers around the glass always being half full and always being able to have a glass of clean water just any old time I want it. Heck, even Cooper gets his water from the Brita filter. Cause you know, he says it tastes better. :)
And day after day....I'm sorry to say...we take it for granted.
This amazing organization has provided clean drinking water to over 100,000 people in just the past three years. Their mission: to overcome death and disease resulting from the consumption of contaminated water by providing safe, clean drinking water to those in need around the world. And possibly, quite possibly, to give the rest of us a gentle reminder not to take all the incredible abundance that we have....for granted.
Every year ThirstRelief puts on their Mentor Auction for WPPI to raise money to provide that clean drinking water all over the world. And we are so honored that this is the second year that we've been asked to take part! We are so excited to help such an amazing organization!

Hey Guys! So due to the MASSIVE snow & ice storm they are calling for in New England tonight and tomorrow, we are postponing Spread the Love for one week to Wednesday, Feb 4th. We've tried our best to make sure we got everybody on the list via email, but we just wanted to post it here too to make sure we get everybody. If you have any questions at all, feel free to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We've also re-opened registration for the next few days, so if you were bummed that you couldn't make it this week, here's your chance to sign up! See... silver lining people, silver lining :-)
