Thankful (& $100 Nordstrom Giftcard Giveaway!!!)

Happy Thanksgiving, Friends!!! If you are looking for some holiday sales posts see here & here.

This post is all about being thankful. Its what today is all about and I wanted to share a little update on Aaron and share what we are thankful for.

To start, I am thankful for all of you!! Starting this blog was a little adventure I started two years ago and I am so proud of what it has evolved into. The blog wouldn't be possible without all of you following along and supporting us! It can sometimes be hard to put yourself out there on a platform like this, and I am so grateful for the wonderful group I have following Blushing Momma. As a way to say thank you to all of you, I am giving away a $100 gift card to Nordstrom!! They are currently offering 20% off their Black Friday Sale items - see this post for some of my favs!!

Update: As you all know, Aaron's battle with cancer is my least favorite thing to talk about, and I keep a delicate balance of what we want to share and what is part of our private battle. I haven't updated in a while because there really hasn't been much to update - which is a great thing. I know many of you are new followers, so as a brief summary, Aaron was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer over 5 years ago. He underwent major surgery and chemo which in all lasted 1 year. We were devastated 2 years ago when the cancer returned to his lymph nodes. He has been on and off treatment for the past 2 years trying to keep it under control. He finished this last round of 12 chemo sessions in August. The scans once again showed that there was no active cancer - which is amazing. We are so happy, but guarded. In the past, whenever he stops treatment, the cancer is quick to return in small spots in his lymph nodes. So this time, we decided to keep him on medication (a lesser chemotherapy regimen) to keep the cancer at bay. His labs and overall health continue to be great - so we are extra thankful for this blessing today and every day.

Thankful: Along with being thankful for all of you, we are thankful for our wonderful friends and family who help support us through this journey. Having been through this journey gives us a unique perspective on things. We know how quickly things can change and, because of that, try to not take anything for granted. Even our simple everyday life - I am so thankful for the ability to live a relatively normal day to day life right now. We know how quickly this can change and cherish this normal time right now. Our babies help keep life this way - there is no down time or time to feel sorry for ourselves with them around. We both often stop and say, how did we make these 3 babies, and how blessed are we to get to be their parents?!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! We are at my parents in South Dakota and both of my sisters are home - I am so excited to all be home together!! I cannot wait for some turkey and stuffing followed by naps and online shopping :) :) Follow along for sales, great finds, and shopping tips!!
XO, Brooke
