Embrace Simplicity and Win

Those moments we would share, telling stories and laughing with each other, have become cherished memories. It was such a simple little thing that we did together, yet I can picture it as if it were yesterday.

Most of the time it’s those simple moments, like bowls of blueberries and milk, that bring us the greatest joy.

Our lives are made up of many simple moments – The view of the sunrise from the back porch. The cup of coffee and book on the window seat. Sharing little kisses with the baby girl. Having story time on the couch with toddlers. The sound of birds chirping outside the kitchen window. Snacking on cookies and milk after school.

When you think about it, We don’t need all the “stuff” in our lives, it only gets in the way. Simply… Go-Gurt is just that, simple.

I know our days get busy, and our lives can seem so very hectic at times, but let’s take some time to focus on the simple moments in life.


Embrace Simplicity and Win

Simply… Go-Gurt is sponsoring an Embracing Simplicity photo contest here at 5 Minutes for Mom. This one is different from the photo contests we have held in the past. We love the idea of simplicity, so we are keeping this photo contest simple.

We want to see your photographic definition of embracing simplicity. We have even created a flickr group for us to place our simplicity photos in. By entering your photo into our flickr group, you will be automatically entered into our Simply…Go-Gurt drawing. The best part is you can enter as many times as you’d like.

Our photography writers will also be posting tips and tricks throughout the next few weeks, to help you take and edit a stunning photo.

  • For the next three weeks, we will accept entries. The entry deadline is Thursday, May 6th, at 3 PM Eastern.
  • Head on over to our Embracing Simplicity Flickr group and submit your photo(s). You can also post your photos to your personal blog as well, but in order to be entered into the drawing, your photo needs to be in the Flickr group.
  • Be sure to comment on this post to let us know that you have submitted a photo or a group of photos.
  • Don’t forget, each photo is an entry. You can enter as many as you’d like, as long as it fits the theme, embracing simplicity.
  • On Friday May 7th, we will select 10 photos at random and post them here at 5 Minutes for Mom. If your photo is chosen you will win a Simply…Go-Gurt prize pack, retail value $30.00.
