She's Mine, This Is Yours

Next week will mark four years since the day a little red car pulled in our driveway and changed our lives forever.


Four Years.

How can it be that four years have gone by?

It feels like I held Josie for the first time yesterday, yet it feels like I've known her forever.


Josie's Gotcha Day is like my Christmas, Birthday, and Girls Night Out all rolled into one.

My absolute favorite day of the entire year.

I spend all day, every day with my Josie Kat.  I listen to her voice over and over.  We have routines and I can anticipate her next move flawlessly.

And in all that, sometimes I forget the unbelievable miracle of our two worlds colliding.

A life destined for poverty and neglect.

Abandoned, unloved.

Parents with an empty crib.

Aching hearts and countless tears.

Then God stepped in and turned both of our tragedies into a fairy tale.


And since I got such an amazing gift four years ago, I thought I'd pass one along to you!

Of course I can't giveaway a chubby cheeked, curly headed baby.

So I came up with something else we love around here.

Organic Bloom Frames!


Fun, Funky, Bright, and Unexpected.

Just like my Josie Kat!

Of course, she chose Purple People Eater.

They can only be purchased through an authorized seller and I've got your hook up!

Tate (Taken By Tate) is one of the coolest people I know and she is selling these beauties.

Her photos look crazy awesome in them.  I cannot wait to get the kids Christmas Pictures hung up in our frames.

But this one is for one of you!

8x10 Mary Ann in Purple People Eater - $70 Value

Two Ways To Enter

   1 - Follow Journey To Josie (required)
  2 - Follow Taken By Tate on Facebook

Leave a comment for each one you do!

We will pull a winner on October 2nd, Josie's Official Gotcha Day!

Tate is also offering a 25% discount from now until 2012!  These would be an awesome gift for any photo lovers on your list!

Good Luck and thank you for loving my Josie Girl!
