A Birthday GIVEAWAY! | Vintage Remedies Book

WINNER: Elizabeth Anderle Pendleton

Golly. I can't believe it's here already. Just this week I was talking to my mother-in-law and I said, "What's June 10th? Why Is that date important?"....duhhhh. It's my BIRTHDAY! You can tell you're getting older when you forget your own birthday. But the reality is that I have so much going on in my head all day everyday, that my birthday—like so many other women's birthdays—is simply just another day to get stuff accomplished.

It's hard to believe that this will be my final years in my 20s. I know, I'm still young. But I feel old at heart. I have an old soul—always have, always will. 

If we're being honest, I'm not necessarily looking forward to getting older. I think twenty-nine will be a breeze. But I'm not looking forward to thirty. It's a mind thing, I know. But for some reason my entire life, I've always thought that once you're thirty, you're officially in that uphill climb to getting "old". I don't want to get old. I refuse to get "old". And therefore, I will continue to act stupid (in a responsible manner), amazing, energetic, and fabtastic. 

There are, however, some pretty awesome parts to getting "older". Like knowing who you are and who you want to be. Celebrating another decade of life...marriage...parenthood....motherhood. Watching your baby grow up big and strong, knowing that soon he'll be old enough to leave the nest and you might actually be able to spend 5 minutes alone again.

Ok maybe the last part wasn't as funny as I thought it would be. But you get my point.

But while birthdays and growing older are so over rated, taking time to sit down and breathe is underrated. 

For this very reason, I wanted to sit down, take a break, and offer something awesome to YOU GUYS on MY birthday. No no...really...you don't have to thank me. Seriously, you don't. 

Well...ok...if you must...


Drum roll please.....

Dun duh-duh dun!!

This week, because it's my birthday, and because I LOVE you guys so much....I'm giving away The Handbook of Vintage RemediesThe modern family's guide to herbal medicine. This is a handy little book to have on hand (get it, 'handy' on hand) if you are beginning holistic medicine in your home and on your homestead.

This book, written by Vintage Remedies founder Jessie Hawkins, breaks down important herbs and remedies by ailment and by herb. While it doesn't cover every single herb out there, it has quite the extensive list of herbs that you would most likely use for common aches, pains, illnesses, behavioral issues, and beyond. This really is a resource that you will continuously refer back to during your holistic journey.

So, how do you enter?

That's the easy part! And the fun part. 

All you have to do is comment below or under this post on our Facebook page, telling me what YOU would want for YOUR homestead birthday. It could be homesteading related, or a trip to Hawaii. C'mon...dream a little!

After that, be sure to share the post on FB (if you have one). And come back daily for more entries!

Winner will be announced on Friday at 9AM! My Birthday!
