I have this nice Vera Bradley* mini hipster (6" x 8" x ½" - 59¼" strap) in the "Viva la Vera" pattern. (It's very gently used - VERY gently - meaning it looks like new because it was barely touched and there are no tags on it. That's it in the picture up there.) I received it as a gift yesterday from someone who asked me to pass it along if I wasn't able to use it. Well, my youngest son has asthma and I pretty much always have to carry with us his rescue inhaler and chamber (which is huge) so it's just not practical for me to hang on to this gorgeous little bag... so I was showing it to my sister today and asking her if she would be able to use it and she said, "You should use it to do a giveaway on your blog!" So guess what? I'm doing a giveaway on my blog! FUN!

The three things I always carry in my purse are:
My Vera Bradley checkbook cover and change purse. They're very YELLOW, and I insist that every purse I carry coordinate with them in some way. You all know about me and my yellow joy. I can't leave the house without it!
My Burt's Bees lip balm (with the label removed - I know that's kinda strange, but it's so much more YELLOW that way).
A list that my wonderful friend Joanne passed on to me - 10 forms of twisted thinking. It helps me remember how to stay grounded and not get caught up in worry or fear! I transfer it from wallet to wallet and I read it on average once a week (anytime my thoughts start spiraling I reach for it).
Until next time, may you be blessed - and inspired to pass it on!
