Blogathon has officially begun!

Good morning!

I can't believe it's already 8:00 a.m. and Blogathon is officially here. As of right now, $1,400 has been raised for The Compassionate Friends! Donations can still be made throughout the Blogathon. The sooner you donate the better so you don't miss out on any of the awesome raffles.

Speaking of raffles, I went ahead and threw together a tentative raffle schedule. I say tentative because I'm giving myself some room in the event something else comes up that prevents me from posting the raffles when I promised. I have a three year old so, you know, these things happen. Here's what I came up with:

9:00 am - Hello
10:00 am - Core Bamboo
11:30 am - Printed Palette
1:00 pm - Bolder Band
3:00 pm - Sweet Bliss
4:30 pm - PlanetBox
6:00 pm - Arvowear
7:30 pm -Scentsy
9:00 pm - Designed by Jessika
10:30 pm - HydroFlask
12:00 am - YogiTea
1:30 am - Origami Owl
2:30 am - Leakey Collection
3:30 am - 31
4:30 am - Ben & Jerry's
6;00 am - Sweaty Bands
7:30 am - Keurig

All of our amazing raffle prizes have been generously donated by Blogathon 2014's fantastic sponsors. If you have some free time, click through to their shops and stores and sites and do some browsing. So excited about the raffle prizes this year!

Thank you to everyone for your support as I planned this year's Blogathon far more last minute than in years past. I am so pleased with the success and the money we've been able to generate for a very deserving organization. It's an honor to blog for my Wylie this year and for all of the other children gone from their parents too soon.

Here's to a great Blogathon this year!



  1. I'm so glad you're doing this again this year! Your dedication is so reflective of your never-give-up personality. You're always giving back to the community. What an amazing role model you are! Good luck in the next 24 hours! Thinking of sweet Wylie even more on this special day to remember her. <3

    1. Thank you so much, Ashley. You're the best <3
