November and a book giveaway!

Happy November! Can you believe it!? I feel like it was just July a few days ago! With the change of seasons and the coming of the holidays it’s time to break out the Christmas music and holiday movies (Muppet Christmas Carol anyone?) We are getting ready for family gatherings, baking everything that consist of an apple or a pumpkin and drinking tons of cider.

November also means that Thanksgiving is right around the corner and a time for each of us to remember how God has blessed each of us!  Each day I invite you in joining me in sharing with each other what we are thankful for.

I have been truly blessed over the last year to have the opportunity to review some amazing books and to talk with some amazing authors, some of which I can now call friends. In celebration of these new friends I will be hosting a give away starting today!

How do you enter?

You have multiple chances to enter.

Each day leave a comment on what you are thankful for (don’t forget to leave an e-mail so I can contact you if you are the winner!)

Also share about my blog and this giveaway on twitter (don’t forget to tag me in the post! @OrganicElle)


What do you win?

The prize will consist of one of my favorite things, BOOKS! I will update in mid-November with which books I will be giving away so stay tuned!

So, what are you thankful for?



I am thankful for the community of friends I have been able to meet over this past year.

I am thankful…

This was on KLOVE last year, and I thought it was worth sharing because I’m noticing how much I complain, and that there’s always something to be grateful for, even when you don’t realize it.

I am thankful:

For the wife who says it’s hot dogs tonight and for the husband who is on the sofa being a couch potato,

Because they aren’t out with someone else.

For the teenager who is complaining about doing dishes,

Because it means she is at home, not on the streets.

For the taxes I pay,

Because it means I am employed.

For the mess to clean after a party,

Because it means I have been surrounded by friends.

For the clothes that fit a little too snug,

Because it means I have enough to eat.

For a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing,

Because it means I have a home.

For all the complaining I hear about the government,

Because it means we have freedom of speech.

For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot,

Because it means I am capable of walking and have been blessed with transportation.

For my huge heating bill,

Because it means I am warm.

For the lady behind me in church who sings off key,

Because it means I can hear.

For the pile of laundry and ironing,

Because it means I have clothes to wear.

For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day,

Because it means I have been capable of working hard.

For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours,

Because it means God still has work for me to do.
