LIFE is FABULOUS...

Hey everyone!

(If you are looking for my Crazy4Challenges post with another SUPER "cheeky" sneak peek from The Greeting Farm, please scroll down....thank you so much!  And, please get to the end of this post, LOL...cuz the quote I want to share is TOO fabulous to miss ;)

I'm SOOOOO super excited that today is finally here!  It's Saturday, and {LIFE IS FABULOUS}.   Wanna know why?

Well, lots of reasons.  Despite some unexpected and stressful events this past month or two, I have SO much to be thankful for.   I will write more about that soon, but for now, here are some highlights:

*I have a husband who I ADORE, and with every growing week, he shows ME more and more how much he loves and appreciates me and that is PRICELESS.

*I have four happy, healthy, AMAZING children who are constantly teaching me just as much as I've been teaching them and there is laughter, hugs, and kisses in my life EVERY day.   THAT is truly fabulous in itself.

*I have parents who have taught me more about the kind of parent I want to be and the kind of PERSON I grew up to be is all because of their loving example.  I have them 5 minutes away and although sometimes we go for weeks w/out seeing each other, theyre still 'here'.   PRICELESS.

*I have a HUGE support system of friends, some I've had forever, some new, and some just here in 'cyber-land', and they ALL inspire me on a daily basis.



{LIFE IS FABULOUS}.  And that just HAPPENS to be the name of the FEBRUARY STORE KIT from UNITY!   Today we are celebrating this new kit in all it's fabby-ness and I'm celebrating LIFE being fabby and hope you'll join me in my CELEBRATION.  Oh, and check out the AWESOME quote I had the privilege of using in this set, along w that ROCKIN' Butterfly:

"Moments are Fleeting...CHERISH each ONE."  FABULOUS!

Speaking of celebration, us Unity chicks are in FULL Blog hop/party mode, so be sure to start out at the UNITY BLOG to see what today's buzz is!  Then, please visit the beautiful:



Well, thanks for visiting today and I'll leave you with some pictures of the FABULOUS UNITY FAMILY that I am blessed enough to be a part of, and a SUPER AWESOME quote that I hope you'll all take to heart today, because in the end it's ALL about love...and loving YOURSELF is a big part of that!

Look at this beautiful lady.   And she's THAT beautiful on the inside too...100% genuine and real and would do ANYTHING for her team.   True friendship and true leadership....doesn't get much better than that!

This girl and I could have done some MAJOR damage to the credit cards had we not been super busy and nursing UBER sore feet at CHA.  AND she loves country music as much as I do...HELLO?  FABULOUS.

And THIS cutie-patootie makes sure that the whole team is taken care of each month-getting what we need sent out to us along with Eryn and AJ...we are in SUCH good hands!   And she can rock the Black Eyed Peas on her blog every day which always makes me want to get up and dance!

It's called UNITY for a reason...I'll just leave it at that...

...and now, a word from my gal pal (haha) Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City about LOVING yourself:

LIFE.  FABULOUS.  LOVE it!!!!

xoxo
Jess ;)
