As an independent adult, most of the time when I open the mailbox at my apartment I’m faced with bills and catalogs (mostly bills). So when something special comes along in the form of, say, a package, it’s like being an excited kid all over again and this past week was very packagriffic.
It’s even better when the package is completely unexpected, which is what happened on Saturday when I came back from yoga class and had a gift waiting for me from my dear friend Mama Marchand.

Along with being a fabulous blogger, Tricia owns an Etsy shop where she makes upcycled jewelry. A few weeks ago she asked for my address, but I didn’t know why until I opened the package and found this “after” necklace inside. Representing how close I am to be an “after” (versus being a “before”), I feel weird wearing it now because I’m not quite there yet. So it will be a very, very exciting day when I get to put it on for the first time. Until then, it’s good motivation!
Then, on Wednesday, my official Sweat Pink swag arrived from Fit Approach!
The little postcard says Kicking Ass Is Best Done In Pretty Shoes. Word. The package included a Sweat Pink tank top and several pairs of pink shoelaces. As you can see, I was so excited I changed out my own laces almost immediately. Last week when I got the official Welcome email, I was in the middle of my funk and it felt unearned. Now that I have the gear in hand, I am super pumped about this ambassadorship and cannot wait to rock out in my new shirt on my run this morning
Don’t forget: today is the last day to enter my giveaway for a jar of Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter! Winner gets a jar in the flavor of their choice, so you don’t want to miss this opportunity! Speaking of giveaways, since I do have these extra pairs of pink shoelaces, would anyone be interested in winning a set?
Love from the ashes,
