One of the things I really want to do this year is to give more. I'm not gonna sit here and get preachy or anything- its really not like that, I just want Matt and I to be able to give more to people. And not necessarily THINGS but experiences. 

So a few weeks ago, while we were having a small blizzard and Matt slept in on a snow day, I came up with an idea. 

We are giving away an edition of The Gather Series. 

It's really simple. So many of you, are such avid followers of this brand, and you steadfastly support our big goals and dreams and all the things, and you read these posts and open the emails and you like it all. The Gather Series is extremely close to my heart. I am confident that seats will be tough to snag to our 4 dinners this year, so we are giving away a private edition of one to one very lucky person. 

Here's the situation. You submit an entry. Your name goes in the hat. One winner will be chosen at random and here is what you get:

-Seating for 8 at our 'table in the field' here at Sweetwater Lavender Farm. 

-A three-course meal for 8 guests, provided by the incredible Chef Stephanie Wiitala of Sunrise 2 Sunset Events.

-Floral galore and decor provided by yours truly. We will style everything for you and be on site to help serve, pour & welcome you to the farm.

-A guided farm tour to learn about what we do and why we do it.

-Yes, we will have the bistro lights strung up for you over the table and all the candles flickering.

-Each of your guests will receive a special favor to take home with them.

-OMG I want to win this as I'm writing out all of this, lol.

Alright, there are a FEW rules, (I know I know) -- this giveaway is absolutely not associated with anyone but me Kalin Sheick. The winner agrees to not hold Kalin Sheick, Stems & Sprigs, Sweetwater Lavender Farm or Sunrise 2 Sunset Events liable for any accidents or incidents. Dinner must be held on a Weeknight (M-Th) between 6pm-9pm in either July OR August of 2017 (blackout dates July 22-31) on agreed upon date.
