My Beloved and a Giveaway!

Yesterday was one of the best Monday's I have had in a while (minus the fact that Boden seems to have acquired another cold and cough!). The FedEx man, while throwing biscuits out the window to pacify my horribly mannered dog, dropped off the latest awesome product from Dayspring and the people at (In)courage! Every month they showcase beautiful products, for every budget, that reinforce their monthly theme. This month's theme comes from Joshua 24:15 "But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord". I love having little items throughout my home to help remind me to stand firm and rely on the grace of my God. I do not like giant items that scream random Bible quotes to litter my home. That is why,  the wonderful "My Beloved" frame is a perfect fit for us.

The picture does not do this frame justice.(click on it to see the picture in its entirety - I am apparently computer illiterate this morning!) It is really cool. It fits a 4x6 picture, so the entire frame, at 12x12 is big enough to make a statement. I can't wait to put it in a gallery wall grouping in our bedroom. What am I even more excited about? It is a perfect frame for an upcoming Beloved session with our favorite photographer, Alicia Brown!

Since we welcomed Isley into our lives things have been a little crazy and it has turned Norse and I into people who are just trying to survive with not much time for connecting. However, as we seek to "follow the Lord" we know that we need to make an effort to put our marriage back in a top spot on our priority lists. I can't wait to fill this frame with a tender portrait of us, from this special photo session, to remind us daily that we are loved beyond measure and certainly the best of friends through all seasons.

Dayspring & (In)courage are so cool that they are offering you a chance at $20 to purchase something from the shop (You will have to pay your own shipping charges)! And for the month of May you can use the code MAY20 for an additional 20% off! How sweet is that?

To enter to win:
1. Leave me a comment, any comment. (This is mandatory) 
2. Follow me with Google Friend Connect or subscribe to my RSS feed and leave another comment letting me know. 
3. Facebook, blog, or tweet this giveaway and leave a comment telling me you did. 

The contest will run until May 17 and I will pick a winner. Be sure to leave an e-mail so I can contact you if you don't have a blog or I don't already know you!

 Would you spend your $20 on the Beloved frame? If I could win, I would use it towards these super cool wall decor that were also designed by one of my favorite businesses - Red Letter Words, but are a little easier on the pocket book!

Well, gotta run, the kids are calling. Have fun browsing and I hope you win!

Disclaimer: I received the My Beloved frame for free in return for my honest review. 

Comments now closed... Congrats to: Becca for her win! I will contact you today!
