Happy Friday! Erin McDermott Jewelry Giveaway

Happy Friday!

In celebration of an amazing week full of growth and new beginnings, I have a sweet giveaway and discount for you today from my friend Erin McDermott.

Erin and I have been working together for over two years to support each other in pursuing our goals and passions (read about how we connected in this post). Erin lives here in Charlotte and makes really incredible jewelry from her home studio. Her work has been featured in Southern Living, Maratha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty and Garden & Gun just to name a few.

Not only is Erin creative and talented, she’s also unbelievably warm, thoughtful and generous. I have been so happy to see her business flourish over the last couple of years.

I stopped by to catch up with Erin a few weeks ago and she sent me home with this beautiful Coconut Wood Gold Disk Necklace. It’s a great piece to add to my winter wardrobe. The dark wood and gold are so gorgeous together.

    Not just today, but most days, I’m grateful for the ability to understand the meaning of this word and to know there are unlimited things to be grateful and thankful for- big and very small. Grateful to me, is a state of being. Something I strive for. Thankful to me, is expressing that gratitude.

    I am grateful for the artist, creative, wanderlust energy that was instilled in me at a very young age. I come from a very “right minded” family full of writers and artist. Growing up around these talents taught me to not only pay attention to the details and small things, but to really try and appreciate them.

    I’m grateful for the wanderlust side of my being that pushes me to travel and see as much of this world as possible (and I’m thankful to have a chunk of it under my belt) and while I’m out there I want to learn, grow and be humbled by those experiences and share them with others.

    At the end of the day, I’m grateful for this life I have… on the good days and especially the bad ones.

    Kelly, the author, lost her brother in 2009. As I was reading this post I started to tear up. My brother means so much to me and I’m thankful he lives just an hour away. So today, after reading a complete stranger’s account of losing a loved one, I am grateful for my brother, the relationship we have, and the fact that he’s still here 🙂

    I’m so incredibly grateful to the friends I’ve made while traveling in Australia this year. Their kindness and generosity knows no bounds. So many have sheltered, supported and helped me through my struggles to build a life here, and I can’t even begin to thank them or pay them back enough. Just having somewhere to stay while I’m in between homes has been life saving. So yes, right now I’m grateful to new friends that treat me like an old friend 🙂

    Today I am grateful for my family. My 14 year old son broke his arm on Friday evening during his first basketball game of the season. While it was heartbreaking to watch, I feel grateful that it did not require surgery, that it didn’t affect his growth plates and that it wasn’t something worse. I am grateful for his health and the health of all of my family members. Whenever he gets down and frustrated I remind him of how this is just a bump in the road, he will heal and he will be fine. Not everyone is so lucky. While it was unfortunate, we cannot dwell on what we cannot change. Instead be thankful for the many positives.
