She is Noble -- Enter to Win Contest!

What does it mean to be a noble woman?

It's living fearlessly and loving recklessly!

She is Noble is inspired by the life of Christina Noble, an Irish woman who traveled to Vietnam after experiencing an unforgettable dream.  As a result of her journey, she rescued millions of abused and homeless children.  Her story is told in the new movie NOBLE, coming to theaters Spring 2015.  The She is Noble campaign is designed to honor and celebrate inspirational women who change the world around them.

Who is that woman in your world?  In your neighborhood or school or church?  Whoever she is, we want you to have the opportunity to tell her story.





Find the time and nominate a noble woman at www.sheisnoble.com.  Include a brief description, your name and email.  Done!  A team of storytellers -- from writers to videographers -- will take it from there, ready to take your nomination and tell her story.

But that's not all!  

Not ONLY could you win a trip to Ireland for you and $10,000 for her work, but if any of MY readers gets their submission published on the She is Noble website, they will receive a $25 Amazon gift card!  (To be disbursed in early May.)

When you enter, use my unique referral code of sleeplessmornings (all one word) so that you can tie your submission back to me and hopefully win the gift card too!  It's that simple!

I look forward to reading everyone's published submissions.  My hope is that it will inspire people, including myself, to go forth and do more wherever we can.  I don't think there's a higher calling than that!

To check out the movie website, go to http://thenoblemovie.com

The contest will close at 11:59PM EST on Monday, April 27th. The winners will be notified on or about April 28, 2015, via email, phone or mail.

Good luck!!

I will receive the same $25 gift card for all referred published submissions on www.sheisnoble.com.  All opinions are my own.

Holman Ranch - Carmel Valley, CA


Last year I had the privilege of visiting Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley.  From their tasting room to their incredible ranch, The Mom Jen and I had a wonderful time.  I posted the review on my personal blog, Sleepless Mornings, and you can read all about it here.





Disney's Maleficent

Unexpectedly, I fell in love with Disney's Maleficent back in May 2014.

I might have even possibly requested it for Christmas.

Until then, I enjoy looking back at my review of the movie, which you can read at The Mom Reviews here.

Omni San Diego - The perfect Honeymoon location!

I was lucky enough to marry a wonderful man this last summer, which was followed by a fantastic honeymoon down in Southern California.  Thanks to the Omni San Diego we ended that week with a perfect night, which we'll never forget.
