{Giveaway} African Pride Home for the Holidays Contest

Disclosure: This post and giveaway is a part of a compensated campaign for Africa Pride’s Home for the Holidays Contest. As with all reviews and campaigns in which I have been compensated, all views expressed are my own.

Wow! I can hardly believe that the holiday season is officially underway! This time next week, we’ll be preparing for the feast of the year and exchanging laughs, stories and hugs with family and friends alike. “Home for the Holidays” took on a new meaning for me in 2011. It was the first time I didn’t have to worry about how much leave I had left, or trying to beat “Susie” to the boss with my days off requests so I could get my time off approved. It was the first time in my adult life that I didn’t have to speed through family time in order to get back home, rest and head back into work. For me, the holidays truly became a time to relax, regroup and spend extra quality time with my family. Almost four years later, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

When I started Moms ‘N Charge in 2012, my mission was to empower moms to feel good without feeling guilty. I wanted more moms to understand the importance of taking better care of themselves, so they can then take better care for their families. The holidays are a time to remind us all of how grateful we are and should be for the things and people we sometimes take for granted, like family. It’s a time to slow down and really focus on those things that we’ve neglected to express gratitude for. And one thing I’m truly grateful for, is my family and the time we have together!

    Home for the Holidays means togetherness with family and close friends. Good times well spent with each other. A time to reflect on having each other in our lives. Good or Bad. The $2,500 Holiday cash would help me out so very much since I am unemployed. It would be a dream come true!

    It means that my family will gather together at my house and enjoy the holidays.I would buy the tickets so that those that can’t drive will be able to make the trip.

    Home for the holidays mean being around the fire drinking hot chocolate with my parents, my sister and her kids! I could really use it to help pay for everyone’s presents! We live in NY and as my dad is getting older (and recently had a mini-stroke) it snows a lot so I really want to get him a snowblower to help him out!
