Blog-O-Versary Giveaway!

It's my blog-o-versary!

One year ago, I began chronicling my family's journey toward a greener, simpler and more sustainable lifestyle. I've recorded our failures and successes and broadcasted them for all the world to read and in return, have been absorbed into a community of supportive and like minded people who welcomed me with open arms. Thank you for your friendship and encouragement. Your kind words and knowledgeable suggestions have furthered our efforts and mean more than you know!

To celebrate this little milestone, and to thank you all for sticking around, I believe a little giveaway is in order! One lucky reader will receive not one but TWO books! The first is called The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers by Josh Purcell and the other is called Coop: A Year of Poultry, Pigs and Parenting by Michael Perry.

Both are hilarious accounts of two different families who risk everything in pursuit of simpler, more honest life. Everyone's journey is different but we all have one thing in common: we want better. We want real. It's nice to read about people who fought the status quo and are actually living the life I dream about. It IS attainable!

A couple things:

1) To enter, you must be a follower of Green's Going Green. If you aren't, just wander on up to the top of the page and click follow. There. That wasn't too painful, was it?

2) The giveaway ends Tuesday, April 5th at midnight, MST. You may enter once a day until then but remember....you must be a follower! Winner will be announced Wednesday, April 6th.

Good luck and thanks again....so much....for sticking with me. I'm excited about what's to come!
