Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters - Win a Prize Pack!

Hoo Boy! So first there was the email hacking, then various family illnesses including my (hacking) cough that tends to keep me up nights and rob me of sleep. We're finally straightening up some (thank you Daylight Savings, I did not need the help losing sleep courtesy of the preschooler's wonky schedule...). Onward!

The folks at MyBlogSpark and Nature Valley recently sent me a prize pack with a cool backpack, flashlight, binoculars and water bottle. This also included an assortment of the new Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters to sample. Yummy! My family can be real grazers when it comes to finding something to eat. H works long hours, and Daniel is an active and picky preschooler. Me, I expend tons of energy just to keep up with him! I quickly went through the Roasted Almond flavor (my particular favorite), and the rest of the family helped me polish off the others. Sweet/salty and crunchy, these granola bites come in a resealable pouch and make a delicious snack! MyBlogSpark has graciously offered one prize pack for a lucky Relishing the Dirt reader!

To Win:
1. Reply to this post and share some of your favorite elements of nature. I'm especially looking for this myself as the seasons change, and I'm trying very hard not to hibernate!

Extra Entries:
2. Follow this blog and post a reply letting me know that you have done so.

3. Follow me on Twitter at @Smittens05 and let me know that you are a follower. Extra entries for a tweet, but please let me know that you have done this as well by posting a link.

Contest ends Friday, November 20th - winner to be announced November 21st.

I love laying on the ground in the Fall and looking up and the bright colored leaves as they fall from the trees when the wind rustles through them.

Water has always been my favorite element of nature. During this time of year it is the leaves changing colors and the kids playing in the piles of leaves.

I love the ocean. I love to feel the water licking at my toes and listen to the waves crash upon the rocks.

I love the changing colors of the leaves in the fall, the fresh green-ness of everything in the spring and watching big fluffy snowflakes fall to the ground inthe winter!

I love fall with the changing leaves and cooler weather. I even love the way it feels right before it rains and being able to watch the many colored leaves fall to the ground.

We live in the AZ desert so this is the perfect time of year for hiking & biking. Long walks around the lake & feeding the Canadian geese that come to visit. If we want to see Autumn leaves we take a long drive up north, make a day of it & pack a picnic.

This is a wonderful time of year. I love the crisp air in the mornings. I take a few minutes each morning when I go out to give seed to the birds to breathe that fall air in.

My family and I just moved from Southern California to Kentucky. We are just blown away by the beautiful changing leaves colors and often enjoy a walk on our property. I have had so much fun picking up leaves and doing leaf rubbings with my little girls. We didn't get this in Orange County!

thanks,
