THE FIVE...and we're off!

I want to start out by saying how awesome all of you are who were up for the fun challenge of Paying It Forward. You guys rock :) I want to make something for all of you! But I have a feeling I'll be doing this challenge again :)

I've been excited to see who random.org would pick for me to pay it forward to!
drum roll please...

# 29 - Katrina
# 13 - Gee
# 26 - Eva Marie
# 23 - Kiki
# 3 - Christine
You five will be getting a package in the mail with something(s) handmade by yours truly :) I'll be needing your addresses...so send them my way: haley.kjar{at}gmail.com
And then you'll do the same for 5 others! Oh I can't wait to start working on my hand crafted goodness for you guys! :)

And on a kind of random note...while working on my little family's silhouettes the other day, I was thinking about Stephanie Nielson (it was she who inspired me to do them). Let me tell you, she is a prime example of paying it forward. To put it lightly, Stephanie has been through some hard things...and yet she still puts all she has into being the best wife and mother she can be. She knows her life has been blessed by God, and she wants to show her gratitude by serving everyone around her.

Many of you may have seen the beautiful video below, of Stephanie sharing a bit about her new life...I've watched it numerous times, and each time something new sticks out to me and I'm inspired to appreciate life and give back a little more :)

That video was powerful and I'm already thinking about who I'm going to send it to. Thank you so much for reminding me how precious life is and how we all can learn from one another's trials.

HALEY! I bet you had so much FUN on your houseboating adventure. I am positive that little Brooks was a dapper little sun-bunny...and loved every minute of his time with his sweet loving parents. :)

I can't wait to see lots of sweet photos & hear your beautiful memories from your trip! That precious picture above is awfully special...

{My extended family went houseboating one summer in Kentucky, and I'll always remember what fun we had...everyone packed into that boat...and swimming in the cool water. }
