Let’s get this week started with a fun little giveaway!
When the folks behind Brita asked if I was interested in hosting a giveaway for one of their pitchers, I said gladly. Because Brita believe it or not actually holds a significant memory if not moment for myself and my husband.
I know you’re thinking “Really? A water filtration pitcher played an important role in your relationship?”
Well, what happened was way back in the day when James and I first starting dating, I lived with my roommates in an very old 3 bedroom rental and we didn’t have any fancy schmancy fridges that dispensed ice cubes. Now I love drinking water with ice (save the jokes, I’ve heard them all) and by with ice meaning my drinks must have ice cubes. And I would always refill our ice cube trays with our Brita pitcher water because I vastly preferred the taste. Plus there was just no way I trusting what was coming out of those old taps at the rental we lived in.
So one day when James was over, I went to get a drink of water and wound up stopping in the doorway of the kitchen and staring at him, because I caught him refilling the ice cube trays with the water from our Brita pitcher. And I remember standing there thinking any guy who cares that his girlfriends ice cube trays are empty and took the time to refill them to make sure she had ice cubes for her drinks, meant that he would be there for the bigger things. Because when you notice and take care of the little things for each other, the little things are what really matter in day to day life because they grow into bigger things. And it was one of the first moments I realized I was falling in love with him.
Maybe I should have saved this one for a Valentine’s Day post?
Needless to say Brita is a staple in our household and one of the first things we bought when we moved to our home. It’s great to have especially when the kids have friends over and we can bring the pitcher outside on a hot summer day.
The Brita Pitcher now comes in fun colours – like this fresh “Is it Spring yet?” Orange!
And something for my forgetful self, an electronic filter indicator that will remind you when it’s time to change your filter. Amazing!
It is BPA free, has a comfort grip handle and of course, Brita’s great water filtration process. You deserve a new pitcher with great tasting water.
Enter in the Rafflecopter below! Brita will also include one of their Water Filter Bottles for when you’re on the go! Contest open to Canadian residents only over the age of 18. Contest closes January 31st, 2015.
