I’m keeping it super simple this week – we all have enough going on 🙂 I’m giving you a break from my Silent Story to tell you about something I want to do during this uncertain time.

Free Weekly Gifts are something I’ve been wanting to do for a long while… I LOVE free gifts with orders, and some of my favorite stores offer them (like Thrive Market, one of my absolute FAVES, who has been my main inspiration behind doing Free Gifts). Above is my refer code, thanks for using it if you sign up for Thrive, I get a little treat if you do 🙂 AND YOU GET 25% off your first order!

THIS seems like the perfect time to send a little extra free love within packages, so allow me to do that for you.

Shop at www.Shop.KmBerggren.com ~ right on the home page you will see the current gift, so put KMBWEEKLY in the coupon code box at checkout and I’ll include your free gift (a $22 value) when I pack your order (with my CLEAN hands in my everyone-is-healthy home).

I’ll offer these weekly gifts for as long as it seems like a good idea, but not forever 😊 Let me know if you have any questions!


Also, I want to tell you about a new piece I am working on called Our Love Runs Deep. Here are the words I’m writing about this new original painting that is *almost* complete (this piece is not pre-sold):

The mother and the growing son. She still sees all his “little” stages when she looks at him. And he just keeps getting taller ❤  

Memories of him are in her hair, at her skirt, at her side…

He looks down toward her after all the years of looking up. She looks up at him. Proud, bittersweet.

Her arm is still around him, now at his waist instead of his shoulders, resting easily. His figure is still so comfortable to her, and she must occasionally remind herself that he’s a young man now.

His affection has grown and changed. Layered and matured. He stands strong on his own, no leaning necessary.

Tentatively navigating the future – new for them both.

His little selves are all imprints on her soul, her brain, her heart and her mind’s eye. They are held warmly, close by. A little boy who left his mark at each age and stage. Even on the tree that grows along with him – planted when he was a baby.

She can’t look at him deeply without seeing all that he was, and all that he may become.

He has blue skies ahead. But, so does she!

Stay tuned for a final image of this painting in the coming days, on my Instagram and Facebook pages.

Thank you for reading. Have a wonderful week’s end. Stay safe, stay sane, stay healthy, know you are loved and that I believe in you.

Love & Sincerely, Katie
