Speaking to my Gilmore Girls fans out there… do you remember the episode when Lorelei volunteers to host the town’s “Rummage Sale” at her house?
The Gilmore house is covered with bags and boxes, and Lorelei refuses to give up anything of hers, claiming she wears every single thing in her closet!
–> Need a reminder? <–
(Yes, I am a huge Gilmore Girls fan! #teamlogan)
Before we had officially announced that we were going to adopt, in the back of my mind, I wanted to have a yard sale to help cover the funds for adoption expenses.
I know that a Yard Sale won’t cover everything, but every little bit helps!
I told Hailame over and over again that I wanted to do a Yard Sale, and never made a move on it.
Part of the reason I was holding back was because I knew we didn’t have enough items to sell/Hailame wouldn’t give up items I did want to sell (Hence the Gilmore Girls Connection)!
The other part was that I didn’t know if our neighbors, friends, or family would be willing to donate their unwanted belongings to us.
With a leap of faith, I sent out a message to all our friends, neighborhood and family that we were looking for donations for our Adoption Fundraising Yard Sale, and within a day or two, we had donations coming through our door.
Our second bedroom is loaded with bags and boxes full of donations. I’ve had to stuff some of it in the closets and pile it up everywhere and anywhere to make room for visitors at our home, and we still have about two weeks until our yard sale, and we are still getting text messages asking if more donations can be dropped off.
We are so loved!
If you are in St. George, Utah save the date.
November 3rd 🙂
