It's Mug Swap Day!!

Today is the day I've had on the calendar all year! Truly second to Christmas and tied with my birthday. In fact I'm pretty sure this is the country's way of celebrating with me all month. 

Today is Mug Swap Day! 

Today is the day you can go to my dear friend, Kim's, blog to sign up to send and receive surprise happy mail (coffee or tea mugs)!

Because you NEED to sign up and you need to do it NOW. This year she's limited spots to only the first 500 super cool people. And when I say she had to 'limit it' I mean it. This grows bigger and bigger every year! It's amazing how much folks want to celebrate with us August girls (of which Kim is one)!

But you guys, I'm freaking out! This morning I woke up to a text from my twin sister (who I met through last year's mug swap) who told me to go read Kim's post NOW. Yes ma'am! (I was totally going to anyway because hello- it's the MUG SWAP!)

So I'm reading and reading about how this year's theme is about the giving not the receiving (SO on board with that!), all the awesome sponsors and giveaways, and then Kim says "SURPRISE!"

You guys! Everyone is being asked to donate to US! To our adoption fund! I'm freaking out! I have no words other than thank you.

I'm always in awe of the people I've met, the friendships I've made, the love and support and encouragement I see and receive and try to give, all which began through my 'double life' of social media. 

This though, this. We're overwhelmed, we're excited, we're so very grateful, but mostly we're amazed at how much our God loves us!

So go sign up to give some surprise happy mail! It's gonna be an August for the ages!

Wahoo! I went to sign up after work and spots were already filled! I wish I could join in again this year BUT I am happy to send some funds your way! PRaying for you and your adoption journey!

Susan, that is SO AWESOME how God is blessing you guys through the mug swap! I apparently am not super cool enough to participate this year since I was shut out of the first 1000 people to sign up...apparently I am slow! ;) But can't wait to see what God does for you guys!
