Extended Family: It’s been far too long…

by | Sep 15, 2011 | Sponsored | 1 comment

Our extended family lives EVERYWHERE. My family, my husband’s family… from the South, to the Midwest, to the Northwest, to the Rocky Mountains, to sunny Southern California… While me and my nuclear family live in the shadow of the Space Needle. Well, not LITERALLY in the shadow, we have to take a ferry to get to the Space Needle, but go with me on this…

Aaaanywho… here is a picture of only a handful of my beloved extended family along with my own family:

We are family.

Dinner with some of The Extendeds back in early 2010 for my kid bro’s high school graduation.

Issues of time, but mostly money, make it difficult if not impossible to be able to see our beloved aunts and uncles and cousins and grandmas. MY OWN MOTHER *sad face*…

We have both sides of the family to consider… and 3 kids, and jobs and schedules. To fly us to anywhere it can cost thousands… If we choose to drive – no family-visiting destination is under 24 hours of driving for us.

How do families get together these days???!!!


The family-focused people at Libby’s recognize this problem that many of us have, and want to do a little somethin’ about it.


In a press release from Libby’s:

Libby’s Fruits & Vegetables Encourages Families to Pledge to Reunite This Fall for a Chance to Win a Family Reunion

This September, Libby’s Fruits and Vegetables will be celebrating ‘Get Back to the Table Month’ by encouraging families across America to pledge to reunite with their loved ones and offering a chance for one lucky family to win a reunion for up to 10 family members . The winning family will receive travel and hotel accommodations to gather for a reunion dinner, total prize valued at $20,000.

Lemme break it down for ya… if you go to the Libby’s Table Facebook page, submit a family photo and short caption on the Family Reunion Contest tab… BOOM – you’ve entered for a chance to  FINALLY GET YOUR FAMILY TOGETHER!

But don’t sit on this… contest entry closes September 23rd. Voting begins October 3rd and runs through October 21st.
