Tuesday turn-around

So I was having yet another lousy, stressful morning {why? why must mornings be so difficult in my house?} and was relieved to finally arrive at school and sink down into my office chair. I had a cup of tea and a little bit of time to check my email before the kids started arriving for the first book exchange of the day.

The first message I came across in my inbox had the subject heading "Giveaway Winner!" Instantly, my lousy day got better. The email was from the lovely Lauryn, of Laureality. We met a few years back when we were paired in Micaela's first ornament swap, and we've been reading each other's blogs ever since.

So yes, I'm the lucky winner of Lauryn's anniversary giveaway, and I'm so excited! I've won an adorable retro-style apron, a cute notebook, an even cuter change purse {handmade by Lauryn's mom} and a $10 Starbucks gift card. I can hear the chai tea lattes calling my name right now!

my loot, on its way to the post office right now!

Thank you, Lauryn. You just made my Tuesday so much nicer.
