Mother's Day Fellow Flowers Giveaway!!!

Recently, the community Fellow Flowers issued a challenge to Bloggers and asked us to say why we believe Fellow Flowers could make a difference in the lives of the people we care about.  
This was easy for me.  I already own the Yellow Flower Statement tee pictured here.  The words on the shirt are gorgeous!

"Joy, happiness and confidence. To smile for a reason. To appreciate sunshine. To find your happy. Embraces laughter, believes in dreams. I run because I get to." 

Running has always been about joy and happiness.  I have always said the second I stop feeling joy in running, I will stop.  I truly run because I get to!

And I think these words will matter and make a difference in many other women's lives.  Running (and exercise) is not about weight loss, or being the fastest but about being a part of a community that embraces health and joy!

So in time for Mother's Day, Fellow Flowers is sponsoring a giveaway which includes your choice of FF statement tee, two flowers, set of four greeting cards and four magnets.  You get to pick which color speaks to you and choose your own color and size shirt.

So here is what you have to do.  Nominate a mom you feel deserves this super generous FUN package.  Why is she an amazing woman?  Why does she embody the Fellow Flowers philosophy stated here? 

"We embrace the notion that one foot in front of the other isn’t just about mileage, routes, and pavement. It’s about life, friendship and defining yourself on your own terms. And this, our Fellow Flowers, is a transformation worth sharing and celebrating!"  
And if you really want to win, get your husband, BRF, aunt, anyone to enter you or even write the entry for your kid!
I can't wait to read the entries and I am going to ask my own gorgeous Mama to help me pick the winner!  Contest ends on May 10!
I am a lucky girl to have a very unique and close relationship with my mom.  My mom, sister and I truly enjoy each other's company.  I can't wait to have that same relationship with S & D!

  1. What a wonderful give away! Fellow flowers is such a great ministry!

    1. I agree! I hope you have someone in mind to nominate!

  2. Such a fun giveaway! I nominate my friend Sara who is helping me launch a local project encouraging people to move! She is super hard working and deserving!

  3. Awesome giveaway! I am totally nominating myself from my kids I know they think I'm the best ever! I love them with everything I have and involve them in everything I do. They are the best kids ever.

  4. I nominate my friend Sachka. I have worked with her for several years. Her son is 2 this month and after months of talking with her she finally decided to join her local gym and start getting healthy for her and for her family. I admire her and her trying to learn the "no more excuses!!".

  5. Paige and Presley SnowdonMay 9, 2014 at 12:54 PM

    I am nominating my mom. She is Jodi Lynne Snowdon. She thinks she is a princess! She is a runner and she loves to run and she never gives up. We even get to see her run at Disney with a princess dress. And then we all run together and I get a medal too. And my sister gets a medal too. I have a sister. We cheer for mom at all her races and she cheers for us at our races and none of us ever give up. I think running is cool and being sporty is fun. I am going to keep running. It is almost Mother's Day and my mom told us about this contest if we wanted to enter. She is not allowed to see what we say! But I hope she wins because she is the best runner ever. And the best mom. I am Paige and I am 10. My sister is Presley and she is 7. And she helped me write this message but I wrote most of it. I hope you like it. THANK YOU!

  6. I am nominating two amazingly strong women I know. Jennifer Palkovic and Sammy Gargliano.

  7. This is a 2nd nomination for Jodi Snowdon: she was nominated by her daughters and now is being nominated by me, her mother. As her daughters said, she never gives up. When she puts her mind to something, she commits all the way. She does her best every day to be a role model for her girls. She has introduced them to the importance - and fun - that comes with living an active life. Running has led her on so many adventures and it has been fabulous for her daughters to see and take part. She is a good runner, but an even better mom and daughter.
