Calling All Mommas!

Feb 05, 2013

Hey there girlfriend!


I’ve been thinking a lot about the wild world of motherhood lately – how it manages to be sanity-threatening and life-beautifying all at the same time. But somehow the joyfully chaotic rhythm of this wild life provides a cadence that we dance to every single day. . .AND SOMEHOW SURVIVE.


Leave it to Melanie Shankle (AKA “Big Momma”) to walk with us on the journey in such a beautiful way in her new book Sparkly Green Earrings.




It arrived in the mail yesterday with a perfect pair of dangling earrings to match the title of her perfect book. And all I can say is “IT’S ABOUT TIME!” I’ve loved this woman’s writings for quite some time and have tuned in regularly to her blog (http://thebigmamablog.com/) where she writes about all things motherhood. . and fashion. . .and feminine. . and delicious . . .and lovely. . all at the same time. Her quick wit, charm and clever use of words is completely addicting! The pages of this book capture her – and SHE is exactly who you want! I’ve just begun to read and I have already been in stitches; nodding and smiling in agreement as she shares her life so openly!


Melanie’s book has arrived on the scene at just the right time. The “Dot Mom” Conference is happening in just a few short weeks and “Big Momma” will be our emcee! If you’ve not registered yet to join me in Dallas Ft. Worth for this conference that is about all things “motherhood”, don’t wait another minute! We’re planning for you and can’t wait to see you at what will prove to be a weekend worth remembering!


So, in the spirit of motherhood . .and all the glorious mayhem that comes along with it . . .I’d love to give away an autographed copy of Melanie’s book today and a fabulous pair of sparkly green earrings!


To enter for a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment by 12pm on Sunday with a crazy motherhood story that will make us all LOL! Has your kid done something hilarious recently? Or maybe you’ve been the one who has made your family double over laughing because of some zany action you’ve taken! 


Tell us your motherhood story and we’ll select one of you to have Melanie’s book and earrings delivered to your doorstep!


The winner will be announced on Monday, February 11th!

Bless you today and I’ll see you at Dot Mom!
