Happy December, sweet friends! Did you all have a beautiful Thanksgiving and over-eat as much as I did? Is it bad that I hope you did so that I’m not alone in my pants not fitting quite right?
This month’s Friends First post is brought to you by the darling Ann over at How Crazy Cooks. Ann is one of my blog friends that I made via Instagram, and I’m so glad I found her! She is an Army wife, mother of four – count ‘em – FOUR kiddos (plus a dog!), is currently living in the same town where I was born (what can I say, awesome people hang out in North Carolina!), and is just such a sweetheart. Her life is crazy and hectic (as you can imagine with four kids, a dog, and a husband who is away from home a lot), but she took the time to meet y’all today and share something truly, truly special with you. This story seems so fitting to share this time of year, with so many of us wishing for gifts of material things, while others are just waiting for the gift of life. I am so touched that Ann chose to share her heart with us today, and I hope that you are, too.
