I also appreciate the back to school giveaways, it would be a great way to start the school year and help the other little ones that I watch during the day:)

Your products seem like a wonderful help in implementing this without having to recreate everything! Thanks for all that you do and sharing your heart and ideas!

  19. Hi Tara,
    Your blog is one of the very few I take time to read – and I have bought many of your products!!! I've kept you in my prayers as you go thru this struggle in your life….nothing I can say will make it any easier. I tot have a clotting disorder and went thru many scary tests – all to find out that I have a low number of platelets but really nothing they can (or that I will) do about it. Hopefully yours is something that will not hamper your dreams of having a lil one. Good luck in your school year and know that many people that you don't even know are sending you support! Julie
