Didn’t take me long to learn that I was born to blog

Since I’m feeling all Christmas-y I decided to hop on board with Karen at Home and Webbisodes 1st Annual Ornament Exchange this year.

My partner was the beautiful Leah at Happily Herring. Leah is a newlywed with a taste for Coach bags and running in marathons. She also has some fabulous taste in ornaments, because she chose the most perfect one EVER for me.

Check this out:

HOW PERFECT IS THIS??? I am so in love with this ornament!

In fact, I nearly bought one for myself just last week! I saw this exact same ornament at a local boutique here just one day after I purchased ornaments for Leah’s gift at an antique store. I was kicking myself for not waiting a little longer and finding this ornament since it’s so perfect for this exchange. It’s even got a little mouse that wraps around to the back of it.

I came this close to buying it for myself, but instead I bought this really special one in honor of my little train lover:

So now I have two really special ornaments this year!

And while I’m showing off new ornaments, let me show you the one I found to represent our new home. Love it!

So, Leah, let me say… THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I love this blogger ornament as much as I love blogging! I seriously did a little happy dance when I opened it! It is just perfect on my tree o’ memorabilia!

A big huge thank you to our Shannon and Karen who arranged this swap! I know ornament swaps are not easy but you guys really made it nice and organized. Thanks so much for having me! I hope to see yall again at the 2nd annual swap! 🙂

    Hi Beth, visiting your blog for the first time today. Love it!

    I would love to know where you found that front door ornament. We moved into a new home we’ve had to completely remodel, and it would be such a special touch for our tree.
