A Big Day and a Big Giveaway: Rise & Shine Book Launch
At the start of yoga class yesterday morning, my teacher said something that really hit home: You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf.
I’ve got some waves coming this week, some little ones, some big, and I’m feeling a little shaky on my board.
First: My new book hits store shelves TODAY! This feels like a a gentle wave; one I can manage. Plus, I’m thrilled that friends, family, and you, lovely blog readers, will be able to get your hands on Rise & Shine. If you didn’t pre-order a copy, you can buy one now using any of these links below (or, pop into your local book shop to see if they have or can order you a copy):
Second: I get on a plane with my oldest daughter, Isabelle, in a few days. We’re bound for the East Coast to move her into a freshman dorm. She’s starting her first year of college, which feels more like a giant point break than a gentle surf. I might need to be strapped to my board to hang on for this one.
I think all of this is worth celebrating — new books, new beginnings, and riding the waves — which is why I’m doing a big giveaway .
To start with, the folks over at Ninja have kicked in one of their Nutri Ninja Blenders with Auto-iQ™ Technology. It has more bells and whistles than a Tesla, retails for $249.99, and does a bang up job making magic with all of the luscious smoothies and blender drinks in Rise & Shine. The grand prize winner will get a blender and a copy of my book to go along with it. Two runner ups will each get a copy of Rise & Shine.
Enter to win by leaving a comment below. You must be 18 years or older to win and live in the United States. Deadline for entries is August 23 at midnight PST.
As for me? I’m going to whirl up this Strawberries and Cream Spoon Smoothie and head to the beach. I’ve got some surfing to do.
