33 Favorite Things Giveaway!

Today is my 33rd birthday. I think birthdays are wonderful because they give you an opportunity to think over the past year of life. They give you a chance to take notice of blessings, to correct your path if need be. It's kind of like a personal New Year's Day- at least that's how I see it.

Those people pictured up there? They are a blessing I marvel over every day. Another blessing? You! Your kind comments and emails are a constant source of inspiration to me. To thank you for reading and for being so lovely I'm offering up the fourth installment of my Favorite Things Giveaway!  The winner of this giveaway will receive 33 of my very favorite things packaged up sweetly and delivered to your door. Take a peek at the giveaway packages from year's one, two and three to get a feel of what you can expect if you win. Blogging has changed a lot over the years but I'm still enamored with it and all of you. To enter simply comment on this post telling me about a blessing you've enjoyed this year. You can add another entry into the hat by liking my Facebook page and a third by following me on Instagram @dandeedesigns. That's 3 chances to get your hands on 33 pretty little things. I'll choose a winner before the end of the week and announce it at the bottom of this post. Good luck to you all!

Penelope was born 7/1/13 and is almost 6 months old already! Time is going by too fast but I have truly soaked in every moment with her..in fact, I am typing this in her nursery while she is napping in her crib :) Happy Birthday Danyelle!

  4. Happy Birthday, Danyelle! I always love your Favorite Things giveaways... even though I've never won.

    One of the blessings I have enjoyed this year is being a "stay at home" mother. It's been a busy and challenging year for sure -- but also one of the best. :)

  6. Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend :)
    I was blessed this year by friends - who have always been there for me through thick and thin and supporting me and always encouraging me when I feel low. Plus those late nights of sushi and wine never get old!!

  7. The biggest blessing I have received this year is seeing the good in so many people. My 9 year old daughter has cancer and we have been blessed by the love and generosity of so many!!

  8. I am blessed every single day with my 22 month old baby boy who was born with Spina Bifida. When pregnant and finding out about his condition, doctors told so many things that he might not be able to achieve, but so far he is proving them wrong. He does not walk yet, but his legs are getting stronger and he is now able to climb up and down stairs, and couches, and is on his way to start cruising. He is such a sweet boy, and has made me into a very strong and happy woman.

    A blessing I've really grown to appreciate is good health. My little family has managed to stay quite healthy this year, which is quite the feat when there are six of us. After a couple of years when it seemed someone was sick all of the time, the blessing of good health has been very welcomed.

  38. Happiest of birthdays, dear dandee!

    You are such an inspiration to all your lucky readers. Indeed, blogging does seemed to have evolved over the years. However, I was fortunate enough to find your beautiful online space - all the way across our great and gorgeous state of Washington :) - quite a few years back, and every post since has brought such a peaceful moment. You are a gem!

    Our family has been blessed this year with time. Time to enjoy the laughter. Time to settle in to change. Time to reflect and be with loved ones reaching the end of their time with us, for now. Most of all, time to love. To love one another.

    May your 33rd year be full of the love of motherhood, joy of creativity, and inspiration of spirit you continue to share with us all throughout the years.

  53. I have many blessings...my family is number 1. An extra special blessing has been watching my 4th baby enjoy her first year. I think with the first 3 I was so busy that I forgot to enjoy the little things. I am soaking her up :) Happy Birthday!!

  54. My biggest blessing this year was being able to spend so much time with my grandmother who turned 83 today (clearly, great women are born on December 18). She is such a pivotal force in my life and a huge part of who I am. Another blessing was having our offer accepted on our new house. This will be our first Christmas in it! Thanks for the opportunity to take a moment to reflect. Happy Birthday!

  63. I have been blessed to move to a newer, nicer, no shared walls HOUSE thanks to the awesomeness of bed bugs.

  71. Happy Birthday Danyelle, I'm sure you have a great day with many special moments!
    My blessing throughout the last year was discovering lovely blogs that gave me the chance to realize and accept that everything happens for a reason and that you should value every little happy moment in your life (as little as it may be). And your blog is actually one of them. With every post you show me that it is important to be thankful for everything that happens in your life, and that hardship only makes you stronger. Thank you for that :) Greetings from Germany, love Franziska

  122. First off, happy birthday! I've loved this tradition you've started and it just shows what a beautiful person you are from the inside out-thinking of others on 'your' birthday! One of my greatest blessings this year has been moving back to the Tri-Cities near family and friends. You don't realize how much you miss it until you're gone, and it is so nice to be surrounded by such wonderful people. I hope you have a great day today and you get spoiled, because lets face it-you deserve it!!

    ReplyDelete
  123. The biggest blessing I enjoyed this year was the opportunity to move to a new city. I've loved exploring with my husband, getting to know new friends, and finding a new routine in our new home. I know many people are not able to — or even don't want to — experience a move, but I recognize it as a blessing!

    ReplyDelete

  129. One of the many blessings I enjoyed this year was just having a happy and healthy family. My husband and I have been trying to have another baby for some time (we currently have one) and when I'm feeling sad about not having another yet I look at my sweet little boy and feel so blessed to have him and that he's such a healthy and happy child. Family is always a blessing.

  135. This may seem silly, but one blessing I'm thankful for every day is being to park in the garage, for the first time in our married life (9.5 years)! It is so wonderful to not have to scrape ice off my windows on cold mornings, and it makes loading up the littles so much easier. Yay! Happy birthday. :)

    I am a facebook liker and instagram follower as well.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Our blessing this year was finally purchasing our first home ~ from family friends, which was even better. We moved into a home I had spent my early 20's hanging out in and so, along with the new memories my husband and I are making, these rooms have so many other memories for me. Keeps me grounded and keeps my brain working, to pull up all the old memories. We look forward to celebrating Christmas here this year and honoring our family and theirs with a Christmas Eve visit from my friend whose parents owned the house before us.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I always love seeing what your favorite things are! I went through a really difficult time in August. The blessing, however, was how deeply I was (and still am) loved and supported by my husband, family, and friends as I dealt with the situation. Even in such a dark time I could still feel God's love and comfort through the wonderful people he has placed in my life, and for that I'm blessed and grateful. Happy birthday! Hope it's the start of a wonderful year!

My family has been blessed to live in my parents home this past year, a nice upgrade from our apartment. We're looking forward to moving into our first home in the new year!

  147. Happy Birthday! Love your blog. It is one of my "must reads" :)

    A blessing this year has been watching my two little girls grow up together. My baby just turned 1 in August and my oldest turns 5 next week, so it has been so fun to see the two of them interact with each other since day 1 of my baby's life. My oldest has been such a sweet and caring big sister, and it melts my heart!
