Shannon of Organic Mama’s Shop sent me this rosary bracelet recently and I could not possibly love it more. Aren’t the colors beautiful? Though it looks like a stack of bangles (love!), it’s actually one long piece that wraps around your wrist! Possibly the best thing of all is that the bracelet comes complete with a moveable charm in case you get interrupted mid-rosary. Brilliant.
Or maybe that’s not the best thing of all. Maybe the best thing is that Shannon has kindly set up a 25% off discount code for all of you for the next 10 days! Isn’t that sweet of her? Just enter MOXIEWIFE at checkout.
You should also know that Shannon donates 10% of every sale to a local crisis pregnancy center, offers free shipping on orders over $50, and provides a lifetime repair guarantee for each piece. She’s such a peach.
If you treat yourself to a bracelet do let me know which one you pick! They’re all so gorgeous that I had trouble choosing.
There is a reason this Facebook page has over six million “likes.” I check it almost every day and rarely come away not feeling inspired. There’s just something about hearing other people’s stories and learning about their struggles that makes me want to stand on a sidewalk and hand out hugs.
“One afternoon Jacob was on the phone with a sibling talking about the trip. He glanced at me tentatively, and I retreated to the bedroom in angry tears. It was so absurd. How could he even consider this?! I was struggling as a new mother. I had a high needs baby. We’d been living on the hope of one interview to the next for months. I was stretched so thin by work and mothering, and we still weren’t making ends meet. I was the numbers person. I knew this was a stupid stupid financial choice. Why couldn’t he see that? Just because we could pay for it didn’t mean we could afford it. Not only was he going to Hawaii, he was leaving me alone with our five month old for a week, and it was on my plate to find extra babysitting help, and I didn’t know how how I would pay for this extra babysitting because he was taking all our money and flying to Hawaii with it! Oh was I mad and, oh, was I justified. Jacob was so so gloriously in the wrong and I was so perfectly in the right that I marched over to the computer and chose the only option I had left…”
I think you should read every single thing Kate writes but if I had to pick just one thing, this might be it.
