$100 Visa Card Giveaway!

As most of you know, a few months ago I had a baby girl.  She is amazing.  I am so in love with her and it doesn’t hurt that she’s a super easy baby. 🙂 She’s relaxed and calm and sweet and snuggly.  She barely cries except when she’s hungry or tired but she is very easily soothed.  And, she’s already sleeping through the night, all on her own!  Lol, who doesn’t love a sleepy baby?!  Especially this tired mama and business owner.  As I make my way back into the working scene, I realize, though, how tough it really is to balance it all.  How to find enough (uninterrupted!) hours in the day to do all the things self-employed business owners need to do, let alone cook and clean, even opening the mail seems like a big chore some days!

So this post goes out to all you mommas out there – major kudos to you!  Whether you’re a working mom, a work-at-home mom, or a stay-at-home mom, it doesn’t matter because it’s all challenging.  Challenging to find balance, to stay relaxed, and be present.  Challenging to enjoy all of the sweet moments tucked between the to-do lists and the hustle and bustle of the daily grind.

In celebration of moms out there, I’m giving away a $100 Visa card for you to spend HOWEVER. YOU. WANT.  Get a babysitter and get a massage or a pedicure or a facial.  Buy a beautiful dress from Anthropologie (ok, well maybe part of a dress!).  Have a date night with your significant other.  Or splurge on something fun to do with your kids that you’ve been holding off on due to cost.  Or, even, pay a bill that’s been hanging around.  Whatever you want!  That’s the beauty of it.  Do whatever you want to meet YOUR needs.

And Dads!  If you want to win and surprise your wife with something nice, you are more than welcome to enter too!

If I won the $100.00 I would take my mother out to a nice dinner because she has been my rock since I had my 7 1/2 month old daughter. My mother watched my child as I studied to take the Florida Bar this past February. It was because her and her faith and love to see me through, that I passed the Bar the very first time. I would love to thank her in some way.
