Happy Arbor Day! Along the drive into downtown, there are new trees planted in honor Arbor Day, and it was so nice to see my hometown doing it's part to help the environment. I can't wait to get our new tree for the front walk this month.
It's a beautiful sunny day in Michigan with temperatures in the mid 70s. We spent all morning playing with some friends at huge nearby play structure. It was so lovely being outdoors. It made me appreciate our beautiful planet so much! There is just something about being out in nature that makes everything better.
I had quite a big blogger moment a couple of days ago, I hit one hundred followers! To show my appreciation of all the wonderful people I've meet since beginning Katie's Nesting Spot I wanted to do a giveaway. Being that today is Arbor Day and Earth Day was this week, a Green Giveaway seemed called for!
In honor of Earth Day and being green so we can help preserve all the wonder of Mother Nature for many more generations, I'm giving away a reusable Sigg bottle. The one pictured right above to be exact. I thought this one would be a great design that anyone would want to carry, plus the saying on the back is so fun!
Have you heard of Sigg reusable bottles? I first saw them at Whole Foods Market, and I've seen them in more and more in kid's boutiques or places that specialize in green merchandise. My daughter has a cute pink princess kids Sigg that her Papa got her and she loves it. It's so nice to have simple and stylish way to reduce waste and care for the earth. Plus we always know which drink it hers, it stands out among a sea of juice boxes.
