First, let's start with a little trip down memory lane, shall we?
Bloggers, feast your eyes on baby Libby.
I love how she was so darn snuggly and oh, those ginormous cheeks!
And, here's one of my favorite pictures of us together,
which happened to be taken on my twenty-sixth birthday.
I love this picture of us because it kinda looks like we were telling secrets.
*Fast forward to the present, and say adios to Memory Lane.*
Now, take at look at sweet Libby today........
...as she laughs hysterically while trying to literally tape her little sister's mouth shut.
Nice, Lib. Really nice.
But, one thing (of the many) that I LOVE about Libby-- the girl has great taste.
And here's lately, she's loving this:
It's a devotional book, and to be honest I'm not sure who loves it the most at our house.
Let's explore this book a little further, mkay?
Here's Libby with her copy that she got for Christmas.
(Note to moms everywhere: if you need your kid to smile for a picture, trying asking her to say 'alligator underpants'. Cracks her up, every.single.time.)
I love this book for so many reasons,
one being that Libby loves it now and can still love it when she's sixteen.
By that I mean, it's one of those books that grows with you; what it means to you today will change over time, so you can reread it and discover something new with each revisit.
I also love how there are 365 entries, one for each day of the year.
AND, please notice the 'read on your own' part at the end of each page-- LOVE THIS! I love Libby being led to scripture and encouraged to explore her Bible on her own.
In case you haven't picked up on it, there might be just a wee bit of book envy going on here; I may or may not secretly wish this were my copy. I'll never tell.
And, one more reason to love it:
This book may just possibly buy you some silence. Oh, the joy that is a silent moment at my house.
And yes, in case you were wondering, my daughter is preparing to sleep in her dance recital costume from three years ago. Don't go there. It's called picking my battles.
SOOOOOO......you guessed it!
Because I love this book so much and because I love my readers so much AND to celebrate reaching 200,000 views and 300 followers (I'm at 299 right now, but I have faith that it'll happen soon), I am giving away one copy of this book to one of YOU!
