Thirty Days, of Thirty Giveaways

Exactly one month from today, I will hit a milestone in my life that I don't think I'm quite ready for, nor do I believe I'm willing to enter into this season of life. Some would say, "you're so young", but for me, it feels a little older. Moving out one era and into another. 

Since it is precisely thirty day until my thirtieth birthday, I thought we would have a little fun over here at Running Through The Storms and celebrate by having a huge giveaway over the next month.  Does that sound like a party or what? Ya'll have helped me in the past as I've made transitions, so I know this won't be any different. I'm sure we will laugh and cry along the way.

Contest Rules:

Every day, there will be a different giveaway. Somedays, it will be a mystery giveaway where I won't list the item. Other days you will get to see what the item is that I'm giving away for that day. The items range from books, cookbooks, gift cards, DVDs, running gear, oils and mystery surprises..  It's gonna be Sarah's favorite things!! 

Your job is to comment, leave your name and email address like this: Comment, Sarah, Runningthroughthestorm@gmaildotcom will choose a number every night. I will contact the winner via email and if I don't hear from you, your prize will go into the final drawing on the last day. All uncollected prizes will be given away to one random winner. I will send the winning prizes out at the end of each week!

Good Luck!!! 

Today's Giveaway:

Today's giveaways is one of my personal favorites and on my top ten list for 2016!  I have had the privilege and opportunity to get to know Celeste Fletcher when I read her book, "The Secrets to HummingBird Cake." She has become a dear friend and is a southern gal full of spunk. What better way to kick off my Birthday celebration then to talk about someone who is amazing, who I think so highly of, who has written a book so dear to my heart and a book that has the most amazing cake on the cover? 

This book will make you laugh so hard that you might need to buy Depends, even if you're turning Thirty because you might pee your pants... You'll cry insanely and if you're married, the husband will think he caused the problem.  The characters aren't perfect and in fact, have faults, just like readers, which makes this book a breath of fresh air. The Secrets to HummingBird Cake has a Southern charm of a small town, but don't mistake that for the beautiful friendships these three women have. Their friendship is a once in a lifetime and God Bless their hearts, we'd be lucky to have true friendship with these three women. They can call each other out about their mistakes, but pull them by the boot straps to carry them through the mud. It is beautiful. 

This book is signed by Celeste. As I mentioned before, it is one of my top ten books for 2016 and I absolutely love this book. It is the real deal.  If you haven't read it, I suggest picking up a copy. Good luck with this giveaway and thank you for celebrating with me as we transition to a new era.

Happy Monday!!! Don't forget to comment below for your chance to win!

What a fun idea! And girl, letting you in on a little secret...your 30s are great! My 30s have been so much better than my 20s and sure, sometimes I'm a bit self conscious that I'm not a cute, fun age like 27 anymore, but life feels so much better now. This book sounds like fun and I love southern books :)
