Oh friends, what a month this has been!!!
When I announced our November Gratitude Giveaway, I was TOTALLY unprepared for the incredible, heartfelt nominations that poured in! So many of them brought huge smiles to my face... and yes, tears too.
I KNOW I've said this so many times, but YOU have restored my faith in humanity.
2016 was such a rough year with the election and other events that seemed to be creating so much division and harshness. Honestly, I wanted to just retreat from society. I couldn't bear to read or watch the news. Social media sent me into hopelessness and depression.
But... I also think that is EXACTLY what drove me to start this farm.
I desperately needed hope.
I desperately needed healing.
I desperately needed my faith restored.
Thank you. You have done all that and more. My heart is full of gratitude for the way you have changed my life.
And speaking of gratitude....
The Winner of 2017 November Gratitude Giveaway
I am so please to announce the winner is:
Sandy was nominated by her daughter Amber, who said:
I am nominating my mom, Sandy G., as the person I am thankful for! She is the most generous person I know, would give up any amount of time, act of service, or money for her family! ...She never ever does anything for herself and I just know she would LOVE a fresh bouquet of flowers each week. She truly deserves them. xoxo
Wow! What a wonderful woman who is making the world a little bit brighter and more beautiful every day! She is helping to bring hope, healing and restored faith. THIS the kind of person we need to be reading about and watching on the news!
Sandy, I can't wait to meet you in person and bless YOU with the gift of flowers!
For 8 weeks over the summer, you will get to come pick up your weekly bouquet, made JUST FOR YOU, fresh from the farm, made from our locally grown, pesticide free flowers. You're going to love them!
2018 Bouquet Subscriptions
For those of you who are super bummed you didn't win (I know! I wish I could have chosen everyone!), our farm will be offering a limited number of Bouquet Subscriptions during the 2018 summer season.
A Bouquet Subscription is similar to a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model, in which members pay for the subscription at the beginning of the season and come to the farm for the weekly pickup.
Bouquet Subscriptions are a perfect gift for a loved one. Think of it as the gift that keeps on giving all summer long!
I'm still working out the details for our Bouquet Subscriptions, so if you are interested in being the first to know when they go on sale, please subscribe to our email list.
Our loyal Email Subscribers get first dibs on our products and all the latest Farm Updates that are not always announced on Facebook and Instagram.
Thanks again for all the AMAZING nominations... and I hope you have a peaceful blessed season.
