Mamalicious Monday

What I have learned this week.
Life is short so please,

Planes don't drop from the sky!?!?
(at least they usually don't)

I live in Buffalo, NY and have been in shock since I first heard the news that Flight 3407 crashed. I decided that I wasn't going to turn on news coverage in front of my 7 year old son. I don't want him afraid of flying or to freak out every time he sees a plane overhead. How do you explain to a 7yr old what happened? We have planes flying over our home all the time. My husband grew up a couple streets from the airport. I worked in a hotel by the airport for years. I do not know anyone personally who died in the crash. I do know people who are directly effected because they new people who died. One of my husband's friends lost 3 of his co-workers in the crash.

Today is the launch of the Cora Paige's Playground Fundraiser on Etsy. I have made this sweet little daisy necklace. I am donating 100% of the proceeds directly to the Cora's Playground Fund. When you click on the button it takes you to all the shops participating in the fundraiser. Please grab the button and put it on your blog to spread the word.

It is so sad & so scary. It's hard not to want to avoid airplanes when you hear something like that. I will be praying for those families. :)

That plane crash story just completely shocked me. After the smooth, miraculous landing on the Hudson a few weeks ago, I just couldn't believe this story! So sad!!

I'm giving my girls plenty of hugs today. That necklace is beautiful and what a wonderful cause!

I don't know how you explain it. It is all so scary. And, we never know when our time will come.

What a beautiful necklace you have made.
