My ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY is coming up! Subscribers…this is for YOU!

The winner is…..thriftyandchic!  I’ll be emailing you to find out what goodies from Hawaii you’d like!  Thanks to everyone for reading The Ohana Mama! ~Sarah

In one week on June 27th, it will have been one year since my very first post on The Ohana Mama (formerly known as Ohana Mama Blog).

How it all Began!

My first post, and what started me on this journey, was for a product that I am still using daily with my kids and am still sharing with parents, both online and offline, Dapper Snappers!  Chelle, the creator of Dapper Snappers, gave out samples to a bunch of other mompreneurs on and asked us for feedback (she is a SMART cookie…one of the many successful and inspiring mom entrepreneurs I have met through Ohana Mama).  I took a pic of my son wearing it (she still uses him as one of her models on her site), sent her my testimonial (it’s also still on her site) and then shared it with my mommy friends on The Mamasphere (formerly BabyTalkBio).  And then I put it on the brand spankin’ new Ohana Mama Blog. And the rest is history! It’s been a great ride.

CELEBRATE! To celebrate my one year I am giving away an ALOHA PACKAGE filled with goodies from my town.  And I’m giving it away to one of my subscribers…the folks that get my posts directly to their inbox or in their readers.  It’s my way of saying MAHALO!

So what do you need to do? If you subscribe?  Not a thing!  Just keep on enjoying The Ohana Mama.

If you don’t currently subscribe but find yourself visiting my site regularly, why not pop in your email address and get the aloha delivered to your box every day? (the sign up box is in my sidebar) Then you too could be entered to win the ALOHA PACKAGE! (contents to be determined….but it’ll be goodies from Hawaii!)

If you have time or feel so inclined, leave me a comment to let me know you are part of my Ohana and let me know what you like or don’t like.

I’ll pick someone at random on June 27th, the day of my anniversary, to win the ALOHA CARE PACKAGE!

MAHALO & ALOHA for reading The Ohana Mama, leaving comments and being part of this awesome last year!!!

    Congratulations “Ohana Mama!” Cannot believe a year has already passed, wow. Just like a nurturing mother, you have stuck with your blog and nurtured it into this fantastic website that is truly a daily delight and like a mini window or virtual vacation to the islands. You have done very well and should be very proud! (I know I am of you). Keep it coming….
    Mahalo nui to you,
    with Aloha,
