May is here already!? Y’all…we are soon about to be halfway through 2017 already! Seriously, where does time go? May is a busy month for most it seems; at least in my community it goes this way. There are proms, graduations, end of the year banquets, awards, parties, and we can not forget about a very special holiday that’s thrown there in between: Mother’s Day.
This month is going to be full of some pretty cool surprises here at Southern Meets Mennonite. Since this year will be my very fist official Mother’s Day, I wanted to have a little fun and celebrate all the women who have given life and love to us from well, day one!
So without further ado I bring you:
MY VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!
Here’s the deal –> I’m going to be giving away a Mother’s Day Cookie Bouquet in exchange for your submission of your best “mom moment” story and photo.
Need logistics? No worries, I have you covered…
How do I enter the contest?
At the bottom of this post, you will find my Rafflecopter giveaway entry form. There will be 4 sections you’ll need to complete and follow directions for. The first three are easy – you’ll visit & like my Facebook page, join my email list, and give me a few words of feedback on the blog. Then, the last section will contain instructions for submitting photos and stories. Be sure to fill in and check any boxes so your entry counts!
Say what?! You want me to send you photos?
Yes! As I mentioned above, I’m looking for your best “mom moment” story and photo. You can tell us about your own mom moment or a share a story about your own mother (or a mother-like figure in your life.) The whole week prior Mother’s Day, I’ll be sharing these photos and stories on the blog to celebrate moms!
What exactly is a “Mom Moment”?
I’m wanting you to submit photos of your “Best Mom Moments” while being sure to add a caption to tell your story. You can make our hearts melt with your warmest, proudest moment OR make us laugh until it hurts with your funniest, “I can’t believe my child just said/did this” moment!
What if I don’t have a picture of that “Moment”?
Pictures are worth a thousand words, so please, please still include these! Even if you don’t have a picture of the “moment”, send in a picture of you with your children (or you with your mother if it applies).
Can I share a moment from my own childhood instead?
Sure! Submit that photo and story instead and you can still enter this giveaway!
What if I’m not a mother, can I still enter this giveaway?
If you are not a mother you ABSOLUTELY CAN enter this giveaway! Submit your photo and story telling us why you have the greatest mom (or mother-like figure) in the world as you share a special story of a “mom moment” from a different point of view. Make it funny or make it sentimental, any way you want it!
How in the world do I send you my photo and story?
Easy! Send all photos and stories to email@example.com -In the last section of the giveaway checklist below, make sure you type “done” so I know to look for your email!
What am I winning again?
If you win my random drawing, you will receive one of my personalized Mother’s Day Cookie Bouquets for yourself or for someone else! If you are local, we will arrange a pick-up or delivery. If you are not local, I will ship you your cookies and your mug!
Can I go ahead and order a Mother’s Day Cookie Bouquet just in case I don’t win?
Yes! If you are local and live in or near the 34266 area, I am taking orders for this bouquet until Monday, May 8th, 2017 at midnight! You will need to pick up your bouquet in the Arcadia area, Friday May 12th from 12-6pm. Payment is due at time of pickup. To order, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the full name of the person you are ordering this for and I will send back a confirmation including my location information. Bouquets are $30.00 for one and $25.00 for two or more. If you place a pre-order but win this contest, you will not be obligated to pay for your order! Please note, I can not accept online payments or ship any paid orders of cookies at this time since I am considered a Cottage Food Operation. All transactions will need to occur locally, face-to-face.
Good luck to all who enter! Let’s have fun while we celebrate what I consider one of the Highest callings there is: Motherhood.
“She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness.Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her.“There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.” Proverbs 31:25-31.
