a happy girl and a beautiful necklace giveaway!!

First, tell us a little about yourself. My name is Tahnie. I'm a girl, living my life. I have a passion for child development, weaving words together, and fabulous jewelry. I'm a momma to a little 20 month old ball of light and love living our story out with my guy. I enjoy being an advocate for the rare disease community, as I have been blessed with a chronic illness.

How long have you been blogging?
A little over a year now, but I have really been focusing on it more the past 6 months or so. I love the amazing things blog land can bring to our lives and encouraging others to share their stories!

What inspired you to create your blog?
My daughter, Sookie. She was never supposed to exist, and now she does. I think that is incredible. :)

What things do you like sharing on your blog most?  Do you have a favorite post?
I love remembering and documenting all the little magical moments of motherhood. I realize that sounds cliche, but this is an adventure for me I never, ever thought would come true. I feel being grateful can greatly improve our outlooks on life, no matter what hurdles we are facing.
One of my favorite posts is this one: These Are The Days

What do you like to do most when you’re not blogging?
Going on adventures with my girl, exploring the world with her, soaking up nature, challenging myself to jump outside my comfort zone, and living in the moment.

If you could live in any other decade, which would it be and why?
The 70's; the fashion, and the music. Oh my goodness, the MUSIC. ;)
