My First Ever Link-Up PARTY Y'all

For awhile now I have wanted to host a link-up party so I finally did it. Here goes nothin' ... 

Sometimes I get so caught up with everything going on with life that I forget to take a step back and remember how truly blessed I am. This is especially easy to do as we are rushing around trying to get everything settled for the holidays before we get off work or out of school. We are over consumed with finding the perfect gift for our loved ones and making sure we all have the best that we sometimes miss out on the true reason for the season. So in the spirit of the holiday season I am going to host a link up for others to help spread a little Christmas cheer. It is super easy and a GREAT opportunity to give back as we remember the reason we celebrate this season. Whether it is to the less fortunate or a random stranger, it is all about the thought that counts.

Here is all the details . . . Sometime between now and Christmas do some kind of selfless act, that's it! It can be as simple as paying for the person behind you at Starbucks, sending an extra Christmas card to a neighbor, drop off a batch of cookies to a friend, visit a nursing home, buy an extra toy for a child, donate an old coat, etc. There are endless possibilities to be explored and I am sure y'all are a lot more creative than I am, so start a thinkin'. Then, after Christmas I will host the party and everybody can link-up with their stories. Now don't you miss out on the fun just because you don't have a blog. If you do have a blog, you can send your description/story to me and I will gladly write it up and post it for you. Oh and I am having a few minor technical difficulties working the link up so I will post that as soon as I get it working :)

Have a great week lovelies!


  1. Love it! Paying it forward through the holidays just adds to the coziness of the season.


  2. I love, love, love this and cannot wait to read all of the great things that people do!

  3. I am also so excited for this. I already have an idea so keep your fingers crossed it goes according to plan! Plus it will allow me to check off a Dirty 30 item, I love 2 birds, one stone! Great link up! Let me know if you need anything on the link up problem and I will do my best to help out.
