Planet Box Giveaway

So here is the amazing giveaway for 3 Planet Boxes, that I have been talking about a lot lately and I just so love to use everyday to pack Isadora’s lunches. I have a blog post here about why I love this box so much and how it’s really not that hard to pack healthy lunches for our kids each morning. I just wake up maybe 10 minutes earlier than I normally would and that is so worth it for me to know that my daughter is not only eating healthy but she is learning a life long lifestyle of eating healthy.

Planet Box has graciously sponsored one of the lunch boxes and I will sponsor the other 2 boxes..

The grand price will include one planet box as well as the cute little flower shapes and letter shapes I use to cut sometimes the fruits or veggies for Isadora along with a “Say Please” lunchbox notes.

Here are the details about the giveaway.

1. The grand price will be picked based on how creative you guys are with posting links or pictures on your FB on why you would love to win this box
2. The other 2 winners will be picked at random
3. The winners will be announced Friday March 8th, 2013

a Rafflecopter giveaway

First off I LOVE CHEEKY LIME CAMERA BAGS!!!!! They make the BEST stuff. Specifically the Livy bags. Would LOVE to win a Planet box! My wee boy is going off to preschool this fall and a planet box would last him all through primary and intermediate school!!!!! MUCH Love and blessings to OH SO POSH!!!

Rachel - March 1, 2013 - 11:15 am

I have been in love with this lunch box ever since I saw your posts! I have a two year old who is an extremely picky eater. We have been trying to eat better as a family and I think this would be awesome for when she starts prek! I am already trying the shape making that you do for Isadora and the glitter video today was genius! Crossing my fingers!!

Kelly Barlow - March 1, 2013 - 11:15 am

I would love to see my kids get excited about a healthy lunch. When I package healthy items in a regular manner, ex: ziplock bags or containers; they sometimes find there way back home. I have shown them your pictures and they have said, “I would eat that, and that, and that…..” I would love to be able to bring your pictures to life. Thank you Lidia so much for everything you do and for sharing so much of your life with us.

audra - March 1, 2013 - 11:16 am

My daughters would LOVE to win a Planet Lunch box! You have inspired us to do more than the boring pb&j and my kids (and I) are SO grateful for that. They are trying more new things and actually eating veggies now- thank you thank you thank you! Good luck to everyone =)

Rosie - March 1, 2013 - 11:29 am

When My daughter now 6yrs old was only 1 she has always been a picky eater and until today I cant seem to find the motivation to make her eats veggies. She lostis weight because sheI wouldnt eat and she hasnt grown as much as a girl her age should..Now I have a. 9 month old and I would love this to help me so that my little Skylar wont go thru the same things as Jailene..She is a chunky baby who wont eat food..I would hate to see the lost of weight..appetite…just a night mare for her and me… I would love one of these!!!:)

Danielle Kilburn - March 1, 2013 - 11:34 am

Jennifer Komp - March 1, 2013 - 11:40 am

I LOVE THESE! Thanks for your give away!!!

J-Me - March 1, 2013 - 11:41 am

I don’t have a favorite Cheeky Lime camera bag. I love them all and one of these days I might actually get my hands on one! :)

My daughter is my little mini-me. She doesn’t like to be separated from me during the day, so I try to make her school days as fun and silly as possible. I write little notes on napkins, or silly pictures to brighten her lunchtime at school when I can’t be there with her. I could hide so many special surprises in this lunchbox if I won. She would be SO happy to have something like this!

Tara Willoughby - March 1, 2013 - 11:59 am

I am trying to teach my daughter that eating healthy is the right way. Sometimes we may cheat on what we eat, however, we eat healthy most the time. I have taught her that what we put in our mouths can affect our bodies. I would love to win this!

Lisa - March 1, 2013 - 12:05 pm

I’ve got two little ones that would love to have their lunches in one of these fantastic boxes!

Sarah - March 1, 2013 - 12:11 pm

I really want this lunchbox because my son who is 3 looks at your site with me everyday and thinks isadora is the cutest girl in the world :) and he always see your posts with the lunchbox and says “I want that mama” :)

Ashlee - March 1, 2013 - 12:15 pm

I think these are great. What a wonderful way to eat healthy in a fun way!

Sara Larrabee - March 1, 2013 - 1:11 pm

I like to think I am a creative person — but can only tell you WHY we would LOVE to win one of these fun lunchboxes. I have two little girls (four and two years old) and I know we eat pretty unhealthy. We have committed to starting to eat healthier (for health reason and so I can try to take off some extra pounds that have been gained since my two year old was born) — and this lunch box would be GREAT for that since we are out and about almost every day!
Thanks for the fun giveaway!!

Nicole - March 1, 2013 - 1:18 pm

I love these lunch boxes. What you’re doing for your daughter is fantastic.

Melissa - March 1, 2013 - 1:25 pm

I’ve had my eye on these for a while. Would love to win one!

Lezlie - March 1, 2013 - 1:36 pm

Oh my I would LOVE to win one of these! I have twin daughters that start first grade next year and I have wanted to get these for their school lunches. We love to do bento style lunches and these would be perfect… however my husband is less than thrilled that I want to fork out $100+ for lunch boxes. If I won one, he can’t complain too much. ;)

Lacie Jorgensen - March 1, 2013 - 1:36 pm

I like the Cheeky Lime bag in purple…it has room for a laptop/iPad!

Gloria Furgason - March 1, 2013 - 2:12 pm

Hello. I am a grandma of four with the oldest starting kindergarten in the fall. I seen this planet box on your page and thought how awesome it is. Any child would love one! If it helps him with his lunches even a little of what Isadora does it would well be worth having. It would be awesome to win one for him and also to pass onto his cousin. Have an awesome day and have fun with the contest. :)

Kary - March 1, 2013 - 2:14 pm

Thank you!!

Sarah - March 1, 2013 - 2:42 pm

I love all of the cheeky lime camera bags. Do I have to pick just one? They are all so adorable. I would love to win this Planet Box for my son. It is so easy to not pack healthy lunches but I am trying hard to pack fun healthy lunches. Thanks for the opportunity to win one. You are amazing.

chelsea guerrero - March 1, 2013 - 2:54 pm

My Favorite Cheeky Lime bag is the Chevron it’s so pretty. I would love to win a planet lunch lunchbox for my son, he has lots of allergies so having to pack him lunches is a must and I would love to use something that would keep his food fresh and be able to pack even healthier options for him.

Stephanie Dishman - March 1, 2013 - 2:54 pm

jennifer giurleo - March 1, 2013 - 2:56 pm

I Love the Livy in Mustard!!

Tiffany - March 1, 2013 - 2:56 pm

OH MY! My daughter (2) LOVES to eat…but she has food allergies (peanuts, soy & wheat), so we basically pack meals whenever we leave the house! We have a lunch box I like, but it would be nice to have another…and even moreso, because of how much she eats, it would be nice to have a larger lunch box! I love green products and after looking at Planet Box’s site the other day, I decided I would LOVE the Rover OR the Launch! If I don’t strike it lucky with this contest, I’ll definitely be buying one! :)

Amber Porter - March 1, 2013 - 2:56 pm

Shandra Dean - March 1, 2013 - 3:00 pm

I would love to win this for my 6 year old! She begs me to buy lunch at school, but I hate the options they have (sorry but chips with cheese is a snack & not a meal) so I send her lunch, I’m tired of sending PB&J sandwiches!!! I love how creative your meals are & she would love it as well!!! That might actually help her try different things too…. my 3 year old is the more adventurous eater so I’d have to get him one too since he will be in Pre-K next year! Love all the posts & ideas… I’m going to have to go buy some stuff to try some of these in her lunch next week so that she stops asking for nasty lunchables!

Leann - March 1, 2013 - 3:00 pm

I love my camera bag…I ordered one after u posted about them. I pack many lunches for my daughter she requires food about every to hours or she get angry because she is hungry (hangry) so a cool lunch box would be great to keep her happy and fed.

Jennifer Berge - March 1, 2013 - 3:00 pm

I love the cheeky lime camera bag in red!! Super classic and oh so chic!! I adore these planet boxes! It would be amazing to win one, especially since my daughter will be a first grader, next year, whoohoo:-) She get’s to bring her own lunch! She would be super stoked to tote this lunch box to school:-) Thank you so much for your giveaway!! Love your blog too:-)

Amy Cunningham - March 1, 2013 - 3:01 pm

I recently started researching “clean eating” and this lunchbox would be SO helpful in getting my son the nutrition he needs while keeping it fun. Actually getting rid of all the “processed junk” in my cabinets this weekend.

Thank you for sharing all of your ups and downs with us and being so candid. You are an inspiration to all of us moms! I would LOVE A PLANET BOX too!

April Cole - March 1, 2013 - 3:02 pm

I fell in love with these ever since you kindly showed up how awesome these were. I have a 5 year old daughter who will finish this sentence “how do beautiful girls eat”… her response healthy. I have recently lost 45lbs by changing the way I eat and have been teaching her healthly eating habits. Right now for snacks, we currently use an ice-cube tray and put all sorts of healthy foods in each slot (carrots, blueberries, strawberries, cheese, ranch, peanut butter, celery, oranges…ect). She would defiantly rock her healthy healthy habits this Fall when she starts Kindergarten. Thank you for this chance and showing us all how easy it is to start our children healthy eating early.

Sarah - March 1, 2013 - 3:02 pm

This is just an awesome idea! What better way to motivate your children to eat a variety of food and learn how to eat right! I want to buy one for each of my children. And use them even when we go to the park for the evening! I’m so excited to start this! Thank you for the great idea!:)

Christina - March 1, 2013 - 3:02 pm

I LOVE the Livy bag. In Purple! Love that there are no flaps to flip over and deal with, that it zips closed, and that it has an outside zippered pocket for keys, phone, etc.

Andrea F - March 1, 2013 - 3:03 pm

Love your posts about planetbox! I would love for my daughter to have one as she starts kindergarten in the fall!

Jessica - March 1, 2013 - 3:03 pm

Mary Bradley - March 1, 2013 - 3:06 pm

Oh, Lydia, this is so amazing! I pack my 4th grader’s lunch every day since she has severe food allergies and cannot eat school cafeteria food! I also have a kindergartner who I will be packing for next year because he has worse food allergies than his sister! So this lunch box would be amazing! And I, too, have a level 4 gymnast, so I follow you on Instagram and FB and all the cute posts about your little gymnast! Thanks for all you do! :)

Heather Loudermilk - March 1, 2013 - 3:07 pm

I accidentily hit enter before I posted the link on the last entry box :/ Here is the link….

Stephanie Tokarski - March 1, 2013 - 3:07 pm

Not sure if the other comment posted, but I commented about the cheeky lime bags, I love them all!

And as for this Planet Box giveaway. I would LOVE one of these, I think it’s creative and and awesome way to display the healthy choices for lunch. My son doesn’t use a lunch box yet, but he’ll be 4 this year and I would LOVE to have this for him to take to school. I also think the shape cut outs of the food is a fantastic idea, I will have to attempt to try to cut my son’s food out into shapes, maybe then he’ll try more food! lol

Dana - March 1, 2013 - 3:07 pm

Love Oh SO Posh for introducing us to the most amazing things! I look forward to seeing all the new and wonderful products : ) Love the giveaway and my twins would Love to have planetboxes for their kinder class starting in the fall! How awesome : )

Paige Prior - March 1, 2013 - 3:08 pm

Such a great lunchbox! Awesome giveaway!

Jess Davis - March 1, 2013 - 3:08 pm

My favorite cheeky lime bag would have to be livy!! LOVEE all of them though!!

Heather - March 1, 2013 - 3:09 pm

This is something that my almost 4 year old could use EVERYDAY! She isn’t in school yet, but this would be the perfect tool to get her into better eating habits. I could pack it up every night and she would have a surprise special, healthy, lunch each day at home, then easily transition into bringing it to school with her when she reaches that age. Very cool product and I enjoy seeing on facebook what you pack in it for Isadora!

Christa - March 1, 2013 - 3:09 pm

I hate packing lunches! I have to do it for my preschooler every day. The 3 other kids only get them sporadically even though I wish I would do it every day since they hate school lunches and I’m not too thrilled about them either. I’d love to win this. Maybe a cool lunchbox would get me motivated to figure out a better system to get them all better lunches.

Jeanie - March 1, 2013 - 3:09 pm

how cool!

Olga Vitelar - March 1, 2013 - 3:09 pm

Emily R Elkins Cochran - March 1, 2013 - 3:12 pm

I love planet box, cheeky lime livy and Oh So posh!!!

Leann L - March 1, 2013 - 3:47 pm

I like it because it doesn’t have any of the harmful chemicals that plastic lunch boxes do. I also love the fact of using a lunch box that is reusable instead of plastic bags.

Tracy Hart - March 1, 2013 - 3:48 pm

Perfect box for adults and children!! Take my lunch to work everyday and I think I would be the envy of all my adult friends!!! Totally posh thing to have!!!

Phani Morgan - March 1, 2013 - 3:48 pm

I like it for the variety of compartments and that it has the ability to stay cold.

Cindy Smith - March 1, 2013 - 3:49 pm

I would love to win one for my hubby :) I pack his lunch every day, and the smaller compartments would be oh so cool for fun little foods that are healthy :)

Jessica W. - March 1, 2013 - 3:49 pm

I like Livy bag thank you for this giveaway!)

Nikki Mulkern - March 1, 2013 - 3:51 pm

I fell in love with Planet Box after seeing you post about it. I think that my son would LOVE this, because it’s fun. As for me I love that it’s reusable and I could make his lunches special =)

Angela L. - March 1, 2013 - 3:51 pm

Megan - March 1, 2013 - 3:53 pm

I have a very picky 9 year old daughter who loves to pack her lunch and is looking for more inspiration! Even if I don’t win, I am going to have to save up and her her one of these fabulous lunch boxes. I am one for me too!!! Seriously thank you for the inspiration in all that you do!

Stevie H - March 1, 2013 - 3:54 pm

This is perfect for my oldest! He is about to start school and I have been looking for something that can keep everything fresh, separate and yummy without the tupperware lids and all that for him to keep track of at school. Not to mention, you are VERY convincing in your posts about the box! Even if I don’t win, I am going to save and get one some day if I can. Thanks!!!

Mary Jones Miller - March 1, 2013 - 3:54 pm

As an on the go mom it gets so easy to drive through those very bad for you drive thru windows! I would like to win this so I can not only pack a healthy lunch for my son (the one with me 24/7) but also put a little love into it. :)

Katherine Hill - March 1, 2013 - 3:55 pm

I love the planet lunchboxes! i would love one for myself to encourage healthy eating at work! i love that there is no need for plastic bags, they are so wasteful!

Rebekah Fountain - March 1, 2013 - 3:55 pm

I love the idea behind the Planet Box because my son is a bit… um… hyperactive. Needless to say, his lunch and lunch box needs to be interesting, eye-catching, fun, engaging… you get the idea, for him to sit long enough to eat. It’s honestly hard to get him to sit down and eat food for more than a couple of minutes at a time, if we’re that lucky. So having something as eye-catching as this lunch box would be awesome for him to play with!

Amber B - March 1, 2013 - 3:56 pm

These lunch boxes are so adorable! I don’t have kids, but I definitely need some motivation to pack healthier lunches and snacks, and I can totally see how this fun lunch box would do the trick for anyone! :) Thanks for doing such an awesome giveaway! :)

Jen Davis - March 1, 2013 - 3:56 pm

We have been wanting one of these for quite some time!! Love watching your daughter grow up, she reminds me a lot of my daughter Zoey. Thanks for the opportunity for a chance at winning!

Jen Davis

Debra Lewis - March 1, 2013 - 3:56 pm

I love love love how there are separate compartments for each set of items. My child loves fruit and it ends up all squishy in a bag or too many little parts to clean if using containers. That is my FAVORITE thing. And no chemicals! Awesome bag!

itsabouttime66@yahoo.com - March 1, 2013 - 3:56 pm

I so would love to win this to give to a family that has wanted it for along time. Shes so craetive with making her sons food and I would like to give this to tehm.

Bridget - March 1, 2013 - 3:56 pm

I have been dying to try these lunch boxes :)

Shannon - March 1, 2013 - 3:57 pm

This looks like an amazing lunchbox….. Have never seen before your blog post. Thanks for the opportunity to win one.

Alison - March 1, 2013 - 3:58 pm

My daughter will be entering kindergarten in the fall and she has special dietary needs and I will be needing to pack a lunch for her. This lunch box would be perfect! :) Thanks so much for the giveaway!

Adriana - March 1, 2013 - 3:58 pm

These are so cool!! I like that I can put an assortment of food in there and know I can portion it perfectly.

Danielle D'Aversa - March 1, 2013 - 3:58 pm

I would love to utilize this planet box for healthier snacking for my daughter… right now I just use zip lock bags for everything but im sure compartimentalizing and visualization would make it much more fun for my 4 year old to enjoy lunch! Xoxoxo

Melissa - March 1, 2013 - 3:58 pm

What a wonderful giveaway! It would be awesome to win this lunch box because it looks like a wonderful way to make lunches fun. Although, I would have to end up buying two more for my other kids because they would be so jealous! :)

Amanda - March 1, 2013 - 3:58 pm

Love this lunchbox! This would make my kids love eating healthy and I might actually like packing it too!

Erin Lester - March 1, 2013 - 3:59 pm

I think these are amazing!!!! I would love to win one!

Shandell Pascoe - March 1, 2013 - 3:59 pm

I have a boy who is very particular in the presentation of his food. It has to look neat and everything must be visible. I fell in love with the planet box after you started posting Isadora’s lunches. But, I can’t fall on love with the price right now. :(

Amy w. - March 1, 2013 - 3:59 pm

I have heard nothing but great things about these lunch boxes. My son will be starting kindy next year and it would be amazing to win one! Thanks for the giveaway.

emily pilmore - March 1, 2013 - 3:59 pm

Kit - March 1, 2013 - 4:00 pm

I have always wanted to try one of these! With 3 kids, they have been out of my budget… Would love to win one! :) Thanks

Cathlene Uhl - March 1, 2013 - 4:00 pm

I would LOVE one of these boxes. My son is in 3rd grade and has NEVER bought school lunch–he always brings a packed lunch from home.

Bethany Lander - March 1, 2013 - 4:00 pm

I love the Planet Box because it’s ADORABLE, an environment conscious product, and FUN for little lunches for little loves! ;)

lyndsey shook-maggard - March 1, 2013 - 4:00 pm

My son is so excited about all the awesome lunches you pack. He loves all food and the creative way you present them, makes him think other kids would enjoy them as well. I would probably have to pack extra, just so he’d have enough to share. Thanks for all your inspiration.

Stacey - March 1, 2013 - 4:01 pm

Would be perfect to help keep my son’s lunch cold for school thank you for putting this together.

Amberly Thompson - March 1, 2013 - 4:01 pm

What an awesome idea! Love the cutouts as well! My kindergartener would eat it up :)

Sarah - March 1, 2013 - 4:01 pm

My daughter is starting K in the fall and being a picky eater, I am hoping cute and fun presentations would help her to try new foods! Thank you so much for the chance to win.

Becca B - March 1, 2013 - 4:01 pm

I love that these boxes are eco friendly and have great compartments like a bento box so you can have different options.

Ricka D. - March 1, 2013 - 4:01 pm

I was eyeing these lunch boxes at the start of last school year. I found them while looking for great lunch box/thermos options w/o all the bad stuff (BPA, PVC, phthlates, etc). I didn’t know anyone who had one, so I didn’t purchase one. I love seeing the pictures you’ve posted on FB of Isadora’s lunch, and it’s good to “know” someone who loves this lunchbox.

Analia - March 1, 2013 - 4:01 pm

it looks like a fun way to make the kids take their own lunch!

jackie pulkrabek - March 1, 2013 - 4:02 pm

I love this lunchbox! Would love to try it for my kiddo just starting preschool. :)

Amy p - March 1, 2013 - 4:02 pm

What a great opportunity to overhaul lunches around here in dreary michigan!

Jessica Klaus - March 1, 2013 - 4:03 pm

These things are AMAZING!

Jill - March 1, 2013 - 4:03 pm

I would love to have a Planet Box for my son! It’s got all the perfect compartments for a great variety of foods and they’re the perfect size for little ones!

Kayla - March 1, 2013 - 4:03 pm

I REALLY need to start packing my OWN lunch (kids aren’t in school yet) & I think this is the jumpstart I would need!!!

Tammy Merritt - March 1, 2013 - 4:03 pm

My 8 year old daughter is a vegetarian and it makes it extremely hard to pack her a healthy lunch. This would be perfect to make sure she was eating healthy. Thank you for having such a great heart And great give aways

Rene Jilek - March 1, 2013 - 4:04 pm

I love the Planet Boxes. They are an awesome way to pack a healthy lunch!

Megan O - March 1, 2013 - 4:05 pm

I have literally been obsessed seeing your posts about Isadora’s lunches. They are beautifully put together and look amazing in this lunch box. This would be a fantastic addition for my daughters.

Leslie W - March 1, 2013 - 4:06 pm

I love that it’s reusable & adorable. I also love the many compartments for a variety of foods!

Wendy Saylor - March 1, 2013 - 4:07 pm

I would love to have one to help make lunches or snacks fun. I’ve never seen anything like this till you started posted pictures of it. I love it!

Chelsea Twichell - March 1, 2013 - 4:07 pm

Stacy K - March 1, 2013 - 4:07 pm

My two girls would love this and it is amazing of you and planet box to do this <3

Lisa T. - March 1, 2013 - 4:08 pm

What a creative way to force me to give my son healthy real food lunches.

Cathleen C - March 1, 2013 - 4:10 pm

I’d love to win one of these for my kids! I love packing healthy food for them, and feel teaching them a healthy way of eating is so important- both of my kids grandfathers have had heart attacks and open heart surgery. We’re stopping that streak now!

Laura N - March 1, 2013 - 4:10 pm

I love all the compartments that allow you to pack a variety of healthy goodies!

Kristina Brewer - March 1, 2013 - 4:11 pm

i would love to win one of these because my son is SO tired of PBandJ sandwiches and crackers! Ha Ha, I would love to have to opportunity to send things that won’t get soggy, or leak as well as things that will remain cool in here that would otherwise go bad in a regular lunchbox. My poor kid needs more variety for lunch!!!! :)

Brandi Holtsclaw - March 1, 2013 - 4:11 pm

I love the planet lunchbox because it looks so durable and holds everything in its place! It looks amazing! :)

Tarrah Osborne - March 1, 2013 - 4:11 pm


Fingers and toes crossed! Thanks so much!

Jodi - March 1, 2013 - 4:12 pm

I would love to win this for my son, I absolutely LOVE these lunchboxes and have always wanted one ever since I saw your post about them (I’d never heard of them before that!)

Angela E - March 1, 2013 - 4:12 pm

I would love one of these for myself watch a great idea

Aimee - March 1, 2013 - 4:12 pm

FIrst of all thankyou for always offering great giveaways and going above and beyond the average. You’re always an inspiration no matter what. Secondly, for me, eating healthy in general is a very personal issue. In middle school and highschool I had alot of self esteem issues which resulted in anorexia and periods of starvation. I never had anyone there to really help me learn how to eat healthy until just recently when I started learning how to revamp my food intake and realized that eating healthy is a lifestyle and not just a fad, or a diet. I’m very blessed to have a child who asks for carrots and grapes when she’s sick, loves to eat salad, and is constantly wanting my dinner over her own :) I would love to carry this process on into her first school year this fall by packing her healthy and fun lunches to keep her energized through out the day. I also think that this would be a fun tool to use to get her engaged and helping pack and pick out things in her own lunch as she can put food into separate compartments and make cute shapes. I think engaging a child is a sure way of learning a lifelong healthy lifestyle and I think this planet lunch box will really help be a tool that instills healthy eating habits in her, or any child that wins this. I know either way, win or not, this is the lunch box I would like for my daughter to have :)

kate foster - March 1, 2013 - 4:13 pm

I’ve never tried planet box before but I would love the convenience of having my daughter’s lunch in one container.

Alisha A - March 1, 2013 - 4:13 pm

You are the best lunch packer I have seen :) I’m in love with the fact that you can see what you’re giving your child, that they have fruits, veggies, and the whole sh-bang rather than throwing in some processed snacks. I’m not sure how willing I would be to give this to my son–just kidding I will, then I’ll just be über jealous.

Crystal O - March 1, 2013 - 4:14 pm

I love giving my little ones lots of choices! Would love to win the planet box for my kindergartener and twins!

misty r - March 1, 2013 - 4:14 pm

I would love to win the planet box because I am on a mission to make my childrens lunches more appetizing and healthier than the school lunches. This lunchbox and your lunch ideas would certainly make it easier!

Gabriela Babb - March 1, 2013 - 4:15 pm

For a pre-diabetic person, this is a great way to have the food/snack in a way that you can control what you eat so it doesnt affect you anymore. It’s a lifestyle change and I’d love to have one to contribute for me and my love ones to continue making a change in the way we eat for a better quality of life.

Melissa - March 1, 2013 - 4:15 pm

I love that the lunch box looks rugged, with three boys we need that! Thank you so much for the giveaway!!!

Mindy Francis - March 1, 2013 - 4:15 pm

I would love this for my oldest! I am so tired of the separate containers because her school is a “waste free” lunch school, and an apple school so everything has to be healthy. This would make my life so much easier!!

Jessica Boyer - March 1, 2013 - 4:16 pm

First, thank you for the opportunity to win one of these! I had never heard of a planetbox until you posted a picture of Isadora’s lunch one day. From that moment I knew I had to have one. I was always one of those kids whose lunch was a big sloppy mess by lunch time. I remember getting angry because my sandwich was soggy and gross and my cookies or chips were always crumbs. I always wanted fruit but no matter what, it never made it to lunch. My daughter starts Kindergarten in the fall and I would love to be able to win one of these for her! (If I don’t, I’m sure going to buy one!) I think it would be great for her because then she can have her fruit, goldfish crackers, cookies, etc. and not have to worry about carrying a ton of plastic containers, or ending up with a sloppy mess. She has seen some pictures of Isadora’s lunch and every single time she says “Mommy, can I have a lunch like that when I get big?” Thanks again for the opportunity, Lidia! You and Isadora are both an inspiration to my daughter and I!! :)

Amy Wallin - March 1, 2013 - 4:17 pm

I am a mom and always worry about making good choices for my children. I work at the Elementary in the school district that my children go to and the lunches from home are usually not healthy at all! Would love to introduce this to my coworkers and students! I would love to try the cut outs with some of our more picky Pre-K students!

Marsha Bridges - March 1, 2013 - 4:17 pm

I love the fun and creative ways to make lunch fun!! You are an inspiration and have inspired me to want to make healthier lunches for my daughter to take to school! Winning the Planet Box will help me a lot! Thanks!! :-)

Melissa L. - March 1, 2013 - 4:18 pm

I would like a Planet Box because it would make it so much easier to pack a healthy variety of food for my son.

Melissa - March 1, 2013 - 4:18 pm

Pack healthy lunches, save the planet and entertain my kids! Do it all with Planet Box!

Kylie - March 1, 2013 - 4:18 pm

Your daughter’s lunches are always so cute and inspiring. Eating healthy can be fun and easy- why I think the planet box is so great! Thanks for the chance to win :)

Angela Stewart - March 1, 2013 - 4:18 pm

I love the planet box’s compartments! It makes it easy to contain a variety of food for meals, rather than a tupperware here and a sandwich or snack bag there. I would love this for my little ones and heck, would use one for myself! Every day! If I win, I can then copy all of the healthy lunches you pack for Isadora… what a great example of healthful eating!

Michelle Howard - March 1, 2013 - 4:18 pm

I would love the chance to win this for my daughter, for the same reasons you have one for your little one!!! good luck to all contestants! Thank you for the giveaway!

Jerrica Keeping - March 1, 2013 - 4:19 pm

Would love to win this awesome lunch box! It would help me make adorable, healthy and organized lunches for you boyfriend!

HEIDI - March 1, 2013 - 4:20 pm

I have been following all the posts on your lunches and my little one who will be going to kindergarten this year us begging me for one, just by all your pictures, so please pick me :)

carlia mulholland - March 1, 2013 - 4:20 pm

I LOVE PLANETBOX!! Because portion control is important to me and my kids are all grazers and need healthy options for school!!

Dana - March 1, 2013 - 4:21 pm

My daughter is a great eater but sometimes we get stuck in a rut when it comes to lunches, I really think this box would help me keep things interesting and healthy. Thank you for the chance to win!

Maryam Y. - March 1, 2013 - 4:21 pm

I like that Planet Boxes have a variety of compartment sizes so that nothing has to swim around. I also love that it makes it easy to pleasingly arrange a lunch without a lot of extra work separating things.

April Jimenez - March 1, 2013 - 4:21 pm

I would really love to win this not because my first child will be starting school this year, but because you sold me a long time ago when you posted a photo of your daughter’s lunch a while back. I am in love with this lunchbox not only because it has the perfect amount of space, but because it is planet free.

Stephanie Montes - March 1, 2013 - 4:22 pm

I love the fact that I can easily show my children portion control and get creative with planet box. Thanks for the opportunity!!!

Iiona V - March 1, 2013 - 4:25 pm

I have been wanting a planet box for a while but the price has put me off a little, well actually I had to get my husbands ok and well he wasn’t too interested once I told him the price. I have to make my youngest daughter’s lunch because of her food allergies and so I have been trying hard to come up with some fun lunch ideas and I think this will help with my creativity :-)

Ashley Kolb - March 1, 2013 - 4:25 pm

What a blessing this would be to our family and the start of us trying to pack healthy clean lunches for our kiddos!!!!

Amanda - March 1, 2013 - 4:26 pm

Thank you once again! I love the Planet box because its reusable and planet friendly! I’ve been admiring them.

Gayla - March 1, 2013 - 4:26 pm

This looks like an amazing way to pack a lunch, a healthy one, for my daughter! She loves to carry her own lunch and this would be a perfect way to OSP do it :)

Lissa Rodriguez - March 1, 2013 - 4:26 pm

I love this cute and adorable lunch box. I hope I win! Thank you.

Andrea Halsell - March 1, 2013 - 4:27 pm

I love the Planet Box lunch boxes because they are eco friendly and so convenient!

Sam - March 1, 2013 - 4:28 pm

Oh how I would love to win one or even two of these since I have twins. My kids hate the school lunches and come home starving if I don’t send something for them and this would give me more options to send them. Crossing my fingers!!

KimD - March 1, 2013 - 4:31 pm

I like all the different compartments and like how nothing touches each other.

julee - March 1, 2013 - 4:31 pm

I would love to get one of these. My little guy has a gluten and lactose intolerance, so I am always packing him lunches and snacks! Such a cute box.

Kari Robinson - March 1, 2013 - 4:31 pm

Would love to win one of these! I have a daughter in kindergarten this year and one beginning next year! Both love packing in lunches and it would be more fun for me if I had something FUN to pack it in. Plus it makes all the food look yummmy!

Linda Withrow - March 1, 2013 - 4:33 pm

(((((((Pick me…..pick me))))))))
Would LOVE to win this lunchbox! Never heard of it til i started following you!

Susanna Earnest - March 1, 2013 - 4:34 pm

My son is an incredibly picky eater. I have tried so hard to get him to eat healthily as well as eating at all! When I send him to school with his lunch box, I hate that I use so many plastic bags. I wash them, but there are only so many times you can reuse them. I have been watching your updates with Isadora’s lunches, and I would just LOVE to be able to do that for my son as well!! I absolutely love the lunch boxes, and would have ordered one for each of my children already, but our family can’t afford them!! Thanks for the giveaway!!! You are so awesome–and such an inspiration!!

Sandra Girres - March 1, 2013 - 4:35 pm

I love seeing the creative and healthy lunches you send with your daughter, this looks so much better then the plastic ones I own. Today’s my birthday I’ll make a wish to get one, maybe luck will be on my side instead of the big 41 lol! My youngest is 3 this would be great for preschool, he has some stomach issues so I try to feed him organic and stay away from processed foods.

Kiera Withers - March 1, 2013 - 4:35 pm

This is so cute and I have a daughter starting school full time next year. This would be so cool to pack a lunch for her in :)

Jennifer T - March 1, 2013 - 4:35 pm

I would love to win. Planet box is something that my kids would love. I just don’t have the money to put out for it for all of my kids. We eat very healthy. This would be a nice addition :) Thank you for doing this for us.

Amanda - March 1, 2013 - 4:36 pm

My daughter has been begging me for one since you first posted yours on IG. I so hope we win! :) I love how there is a spot for everything and that you don’t have to use the plastic baggies.

Alyssa - March 1, 2013 - 4:37 pm

Amanda - March 1, 2013 - 4:57 pm

I would love this to help pack healthy lunches for the wild things! The kids love to eat healthy at home but have a hard time making it a mobile habit. I might actually need to buy them if we don’t win the give away.

Amber - March 1, 2013 - 4:58 pm

how sweet, and kind. I was going to order one for my kiddos. but the prices made me nervous a bit. this is such a fun idea. so I figured ide try my odds. I hope who ever wins loves it. and I hope we all hear feed back. I cant wait to own some. (:

Betsy Morgan - March 1, 2013 - 4:58 pm

I love the lunch box and little compartments. I think it would be perfect for encouraging my picky eater to eat better.

Lis Nelson - March 1, 2013 - 4:58 pm

Been following your posts about the planet box. Looks like you have a lot of fun with it. Thanks for the giveaway!!

Jarin - March 1, 2013 - 4:59 pm

Love love love this planet lunch box!! Can’t wait to use this for my daughter’s lunches! What a special and very IMPORTANT way to show our children we love and care for them with fun, colorful and healthy meals!! : )

Kat - March 1, 2013 - 5:00 pm

It would be easier to say what I don’t love-which is nothing. Awesome little product and would be perfect for my monsters lunch. I’ve loved seeing your lunch pictures for your daughter!

Michelle - March 1, 2013 - 5:01 pm

I have been wanting to get these Eco friendly lunch boxes for my girls

Rachel - March 1, 2013 - 5:02 pm

Love this! It would be perfect for my daughter.

Cristi Blalock - March 1, 2013 - 5:03 pm

I would love to have this for my son. My husband and I have made so many life changes ( I’m working on losing 103 lbs) and promoting healthy habits is now a number 1 priority for us. I know we could never afford to buy one so I would love to win this for him. :)

Christina Jones - March 1, 2013 - 5:03 pm

I love making my children healthy snacks, but all they want is lunchables! I’m not a fan of lunchables, but will make them similar things in their lunch box that is healthy alternative. This box is just so neat and organized!

Desiree - March 1, 2013 - 5:07 pm

I love seeing all the pictures of your draughts lunches!!

Dawna Martin - March 1, 2013 - 5:07 pm

I love this! i have shown it to my 8 year old and he loved it!

April Craft - March 1, 2013 - 5:07 pm

I would love a Planet Box (or 2!) for my 2 children who take their lunch to school every day. They would have many more choices with this lunch box than what they currently have! Thank you for this opportunity!

Melissa - March 1, 2013 - 5:08 pm

I have been oogling over your lunchbox posts! Would love to win one!!

Angela F. - March 1, 2013 - 5:09 pm

My son is turning 4 but even though he is not in school YET, this is such a great way to get him to eat healthier and with more THOUGHT. It also helps ME to better prepare his meals with the love and attention he so deserves as a growing boy. These are such a great idea that makes you stray from always putting in a sandwich, fruit snacks and yogurt for lunch. I LOVE it. Absolutely brilliant.

Bree - March 1, 2013 - 5:10 pm

I have recently become very conscientious about the plates and silverware my two little ones eat on. A lunch box like this would be fantastic to eliminate another not so hot plastic item.

Maggy - March 1, 2013 - 5:11 pm

I would love to win this for my son and I also as a mom would love for him to win it because I will enjoy packing his lunch for school. Thank you for passing out this neat product!

Rachel Gyon - March 1, 2013 - 5:13 pm

What I love best about the PlanetBox is that it is made of stainless steel. I hate worrying about my daughter’s lunch sitting in a plastic container that can leach toxins into her food. My daughter attends a charter school that does not serve lunch, but sells junk food (concession type snack food). Taking her lunch is the only option that we have. Oh, I also love the sizes of the compartments. Living in a supersized country makes it easy to forget what a healthy portion size really is.

Thank you for the opportunity to win! :)

Melanie - March 1, 2013 - 5:16 pm

My grandson would love to have this when he starts school in August. He said he wants his lunch to be just like Isadora. Thank you so much for doing this :)

Jamie Worthen - March 1, 2013 - 5:17 pm

I would love to win one of these. My daughter is such a picky eater and I wonder if one of these will help with school lunches. :-) thanks for the chance to win!!!

Virginia - March 1, 2013 - 5:17 pm

Honestly I started loving the planetbox because of you!! My daughter is such a picky eater and I am sure this would help us out a ton! I am inspired by your creations :)

Emily Miner - March 1, 2013 - 5:20 pm

I love the way you make your daughters lunch boxes! Would love to win!

Lily wise - March 1, 2013 - 5:21 pm

Iit looks like it would be perfect for my little one. I like fixing him bento meals for lunch. I love the lunches you make for Isadora.

Mandi - March 1, 2013 - 5:22 pm

Would love to win this! I read your posts all the time!

Jules Taylor - March 1, 2013 - 5:22 pm

My 6 year old gymnast daughter (much like Isadora), would love to win this lunchbox so she can have her fresh & nutritive lunch at school without it spilling out or mushing up.

Kim - March 1, 2013 - 5:24 pm

I learned of the Planetbox from you and would LOVE to win one! And I know my daughter would love it too!

Angela Tuttle - March 1, 2013 - 5:26 pm

I need this box!!! I use a plastic version for my sons lunch but all my fun creative lunches had been getting mixed because the “individual” compartments are all that individual!

Cali - March 1, 2013 - 5:28 pm

I would love this for my daughter!!!!!!!

Stacey Pharris - March 1, 2013 - 5:28 pm

I like Planet Box because it encourages healthy eating and also makes it easy to pack a healthy lunch for your kids or yourself! So many great ideas/ways to serve the food!

Jessica Stonis - March 1, 2013 - 5:28 pm

My daughter starts preK next year and I would love to start her off right with an amazing lunch box with healthy food!!

Tracy Le Sage - March 1, 2013 - 5:34 pm

Whether I win or not doesn’t matter because I will always be a fan of your page and enjoy all the wonderful and the not so wonderful moments in your life that you share with the world to see. My favorite thing about your page is that it’s so colorful and has so many inspired photographers sharing their beautiful images after using your amazing and quite helpful actions. Always colorful , always inspiring , this is what I love about your page. :)

You are such a beautiful person, both inside and out , you’re such a giving person and always wanting to help others. You are an inspiration to so many, never change.

Good luck to everyone who has entered :)

Kristin Martinez - March 1, 2013 - 5:35 pm

Love your creative lunches. Can’t wait to get a Planet Box so I can do the same. :)

Jamie Juarez - March 1, 2013 - 5:36 pm

My daughter Isabella (Bella) is a Figure skater, and we often have to eat on the run…this would make life so much easier if she had a cute Planet Box!!

Danielle Copetillo - March 1, 2013 - 5:44 pm

My favorite thing about the planet box is that none of the foods will touch. My son starts school this fall and I plan to pack his lunch but if his foods touch he wont eat them. So this is the perfect lunch box. :)

Amy Macias - March 1, 2013 - 5:45 pm

I absolutely adore this! I love being creative with my daughters lunch and having this would make it all better :)

Sherylynn Ball - March 1, 2013 - 5:50 pm

Wow, what DON’T I love about the Planet Box! I love all the sectioned compartments it has to keep foods separated. You make making Kid’s lunch look so fun! I love that foods wont get smashed, it’s easy to clean and so portable! My daughter has a milk allergy so this would help me a ton beings I have to make her lunches anyway!

Kelly Shore - March 1, 2013 - 5:58 pm

This is so sweet of you to do a giveaway….I have been drooling over this planet box ever since you first posted a picture of Isadoras……

Alysia - March 1, 2013 - 5:59 pm

I would love to win the planet box. My son is only 19 months old, but this is a great way to instill healthy eating habits. I love the portion sizes. Its a great way for them not to over eat chip and have a well rounded meal! I hope i win!!! :)

trisha - March 1, 2013 - 6:01 pm

OMgosh! my daughter would loveeeeeeee this! she has been asking if we could make lunches for school from now on and I couldn’t
think of any other way to send her!

what a awesome giveaway!

Aimee Carter - March 1, 2013 - 6:03 pm

I love the Planet Box because my daughter prefers that her food doesn’t “touch” and even more that it is so easy to clean!!

Dana Dirks - March 1, 2013 - 6:05 pm

I am a Mama to two beautiful babes, ages 5 and 2. My daughter will be starting kindergarten in the fall and I would LOVE to have this to send her to school with! I am a “foodie” and all about eating healthy. I also try to be as green as possible and have already stopped using paper towels, paper plates, etc. and I am currently working on replacing all my plastic tupperware with glass containers. This would be so great to have so I don’t have to send my daughter to school with a bunch of glass containers! Thanks for the opportunity Lidia!

Heather Braun - March 1, 2013 - 6:05 pm

I would love to win this so I can use it first ;) then pass it to my daughter! I love the portion control. Thats what I need to get better at in terms of healthier eating! Thanks for the chance to win!

Janelle - March 1, 2013 - 6:13 pm

Love the healthy options and fun ways to make healthy fun!

Brittney Boykin - March 1, 2013 - 6:17 pm

I’m so glad you posted about making a healthy lunch fun and interesting! Healthy lunches are very important especially to teach at an early age! But to me I think our children will more so remember (As they get older) the LOVE that is put into their healthy lunches. The Planet Box makes organizing and fixing healthy lunches fun and simples! You are so inspiring and give people that little bit of encouragement to take that extra 10 minutes out of their day to fix their child a healthy lunch made with love! :) Thank you for this opportunity.

Chelsee - March 1, 2013 - 6:21 pm

I basically cannot function without organization and this would make my life so much easier!

Valerie Wicks - March 1, 2013 - 6:25 pm

I love that the Planet Box provides the means to packing a healthy lunch even when on the go!

Stephanie - March 1, 2013 - 6:26 pm

I also make my kids lunches everyday and have been trying to find an alternative to using disposable bags for their snacks. When I saw your post about the planet boxes, I thought it would be the perfect solution. :)

Tammy Schaeffer - March 1, 2013 - 6:32 pm

I’ve always loved the Planetbox since you talked about it a while ago. I actually just thought about it the other day cause I was planning on getting one when my child starts school. I love how it’s set up, that it’s stainless steel and that you can buy a cute carrying case for it. It’s perfect! :)

Andrea - March 1, 2013 - 6:32 pm

I love the planet box. I was debating on buying one because it would make packing all natural lunches so much easier for me. No more carrying around different tupperware containers!

Rebecca - March 1, 2013 - 6:35 pm

I so love this, crossing my fingers!!!! joshbayne80@gmail.com or bellebritobayne@yahoo.com

Alexis Starns - March 1, 2013 - 6:40 pm

Just love the portion sizes. Thanks so much for the five away!

Heather - March 1, 2013 - 6:49 pm

My little girls would love this!

Pam Cummings - March 1, 2013 - 6:52 pm

I really love this lunchbox! It would make it so much easier to send my son to school with a really healthy lunch/snack. Portion would be so much easier to control. Thanks for the opportunity to win one of these!

Amber Ceniceros - March 1, 2013 - 6:58 pm

So fun! Thanks for the giveaway :)

Katie - March 1, 2013 - 6:59 pm

This is SUCH a cute idea. I hope to be as skilled at my mothering as you definitely seemed to be! This would be so helpful with my picky eater who is 3. Not to mention she can never make her mind, so the compartments would be great!

jennifer turner - March 1, 2013 - 6:59 pm

I would love for my daughter to have this lunchbox to easily bring a healthy meal for her lunch!! It would be nice to have for the fast easy cleanup!! <3

Kristina Young - March 1, 2013 - 7:02 pm

I like the planet box because it gives you room for so much creativity to make fun healthy lunches. We currently use bento style lunch boxes the cheap version for my preschooler and she has never been so interested in eating her food and actually sitting to complete a meal, we often use them for meals at home or picnics as well, would love to win her a nice planet box so she has something new and nice when she starts kindergarten in the fall! Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

Tiffany Carpenter - March 1, 2013 - 7:07 pm

I DREAD making lunches…. but you just make this seem soo simple and actually FUN?? I would love to give this box a whirl! :D

Mary - March 1, 2013 - 7:09 pm

I adore the concept of planet box. The thrill of a healthy choice being a GREAT choice. I love showing our kids that this is a great way to eat, it doesn’t have to be boring or chalk full of processed food. I love it and how inspiring you are in this crusade to start our kids off with a Health forming habits.

Whitney - March 1, 2013 - 7:12 pm

I love these lunch boxes and would love to have one for my daughter whose 7th birthday is next month! She loves her fruits and veggies and a variety in her meals. This would be perfect!
Thanks for such a great giveaway:)

Amy Ester - March 1, 2013 - 7:18 pm

I would love to win this lunch box for my daughter. With numerous life threatening food allergies, she is allergic to eggs and anything that has it in them, peanuts, and tree nuts, making lunches for her is challenging. She always tends to feel a little left out at school because the other kids can enjoy the cupcakes for someone’s birthday part. I feel that having a cool lunch box like this one will give her that special feeling again, and also give her something to look forward to when going to eat lunch. Thank you for having this amazing giveaway!

Arena Singh - March 1, 2013 - 7:22 pm

I have admired these lunch boxes for some time but just haven’t been able to afford one. I try to be creative with my boys’ lunches, which they really love. It would be insanely awesome to win!

Dawn - March 1, 2013 - 7:25 pm

I love the Eco friendly design of planet box that will make it easy to prepare healthy food for my kids with no waste!

Victoria - March 1, 2013 - 7:27 pm

Kim Freeman - March 1, 2013 - 8:06 pm

I love the lunch box it would make it easier to pack my daughters lunch for school…

Heather S - March 1, 2013 - 8:08 pm

I have been swooning over these lunch boxes for awhile but haven’t been able to afford to get one. My daughter is in Kindergarten and my son will be starting Kindergarten in the fall. My daughter loves to bring her lunch, but we struggle with containers her little hands can open but stay sealed so there aren’t any leaks. Some days her meals are ruined due to leaks, she gets so upset. I would love to have one of these sets for her, and someday one for my son, I know he will struggle like she does now. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win one!

Danielle - March 1, 2013 - 8:08 pm

I love the fact you can have just one piece to wash. Also it is the green way, no more sandwich baggies.

Jennifer Shelton - March 1, 2013 - 8:13 pm

This would be awesome for my family! We are eating a lot healthier and this would be a great way to send lunches to school.

Dianna P. - March 1, 2013 - 8:18 pm

I would love to have a planet box for my 3 1/2 year old son to use for preschool. I really like how it has several different size compartments that would allow me to put a variety of healthy foods in it for him without using several Tupperware containers and sandwich bags that can be difficult for small hands to open. My son and I would be so excited to win a have a Planet Box!!

Shawnda Erb - March 1, 2013 - 8:18 pm

This would make Summer and sports season so much more fun for my boys!! They love fruit and anything to make it more interesting is amazing!! Thanks for hosting!!

Alissa Davis - March 1, 2013 - 8:19 pm

I love that it eliminates the need for sandwich bags.

Angie Coleman - March 1, 2013 - 8:29 pm

Love the Planet Box because it will enable me to pack healthier lunches for my twins instead of a plain ole peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Jennifer - March 1, 2013 - 8:42 pm

Love your work, you are an inspiration to all:)

Carole moss - March 1, 2013 - 8:44 pm

Great boxes that make healthy portions for kids!

Jacenta Huff - March 1, 2013 - 8:45 pm

The planet box looks AWESOME and my son Aiden would LOVE it! He has decided he is never buying school lunch again only packing so this would be just perfect for him!

Carmen - March 1, 2013 - 9:11 pm

My son would love this…so hard to find “boy” lunch boxes for older boys.

Kassi W. - March 1, 2013 - 9:20 pm

Love these! My daughter loves to eat healthy food but it’s not always easy to pack in a traditional lunchbox. This would be so great to have! Thank you for hosting this giveaway. <3

Melissa Esterline - March 1, 2013 - 9:26 pm

I would love to win one of these. I actually followed the link you posted and was pretty bummed when I saw how much they cost. I pack my kids’ lunches every day and I think this would be a great way to promote healthy choices as well as maintain a green agenda.

Kelly Gentz - March 1, 2013 - 9:29 pm

I’d love a planetbox because my daughter takes a lunch from home every day and I really like that it’s stainless steel. I’d love to win.

Michele N - March 1, 2013 - 9:40 pm

I would love this lunchbox to help me pack healthier lunches for me. I’ve been trying to eat better but hate packing certain things in baggies versus containers. Thank you for the opportunity to win one!

Kay - March 1, 2013 - 9:50 pm

I’ve been so inspired by your posts about Isadora’s healthy lunches, and I want to be able to provide healthy lunches for my son. He is about to start a new school and I think this would start us off on the right foot!

Sarah V - March 1, 2013 - 9:58 pm

We pack every day and I would love this because its durable, adorable, and easy to use!!

Melissa Harmon - March 1, 2013 - 10:02 pm

Brandy Yeazel - March 1, 2013 - 11:10 pm

This little item is just awesome!!! I think it would be great to use for our 17 year old snacks before practice or our 3 year old for lunch on the road.. It is so organized.. We spent $$$$ on Vera lunch totes, plastic totes, random cool bags for lunch ..even mini coolers for before practice snacks and before games.. This little lunch box is precious!! Thanks for the sponsoring the giveaway!!

Danielle Sanden - March 1, 2013 - 11:12 pm

I would love this lunchbox for my daughter because honestly I never could afford a box like this! I’ve always struggled with my weight and its been an uphill battle getting to make she my daughter is healthy too. :) I honestly would truly love this.

Amber Holifield - March 1, 2013 - 11:33 pm

I love everything about this lunch box! After battling breast cancer this past year at a young age, I would love to be able to give this to my niece so her Mom could pack her healthy lunches. We’re trying to teach her the importance of taking care of your body from a young age. I love seeing what you will pack Isadora next :) You both are an inspiration!!!

Cristina - March 1, 2013 - 11:42 pm

I would love to have this planet box for my son who starts kindergarten this fall… Love all the lunches you prepare for Isadora, the cute little vegetable and fruits cut outs ;) plus the planet box is such an amazing and healthy alternative to plastic containers!!!!!

dana baker - March 2, 2013 - 12:35 am

this has got to be the coolest “lunch box” i have ever seen! not only is it timeless in it’s design, but all the seperate compartments make it perfect for different types of food without having to use baggies to seperate everything. it’s just awesome :)

Heather Blewett - March 2, 2013 - 6:21 am

I need this! What a great way to pack a healthy lunch!

Melissa Pratt - March 2, 2013 - 6:25 am

I love that the Planet Box keeps the different food items separate. I love that is is metal/not plastic. I love that it is waste free. I pack my kids similar lunches but my containers are lousy and sometimes the foods don’t stay separated.

Tiffany - March 2, 2013 - 6:49 am

I would love a planet lunchbox! I love to pack a variety of options for my daughter, but the plastic containers that I use aren’t cutting it, they are hard for her to open, and I don’t want to resort to using zip-lock bags.

KristinaM - March 2, 2013 - 6:51 am

I would love to win also! What a blessed what for picky eaters to keep their food separate and have a healthy lunch.

Megan S. - March 2, 2013 - 6:59 am

You are just so awesome! My 6 year old would absolutely love one of these lunch boxes! She thinks it’s cool to have “fancy” lunch boxes. Plus, she has been so picky lately, I think one of these would help us both out!!

Allison Harmon - March 2, 2013 - 7:05 am

I have told everyone in my family about the planet boxes after seeing your post. I would love to have one for my son!

Noelle Onyemaechi - March 2, 2013 - 7:39 am

I love the idea of these Planet boxes. You can feel good about packing lunch for yourself and/or your child. Also the design is excellent for maximum healthy deliciousness to be put in! The ‘Say Please’ notes are so cute and are the type of notes any parent should leave their child as a reminder of how important they are. I also like that the box is easy to clean and care for.

Michelle Wirth - March 2, 2013 - 8:05 am

I LOVE the planet box lunch box and so does my son. when he saw the picture of it he said “Thats awesome. It looks like a tool box, but for food, I want one!”
kids are so cute :)

Brianne - March 2, 2013 - 8:45 am

Sarah - March 2, 2013 - 8:55 am

I love all your posts on these lunch boxes! I would love to win one to be able to pack my daughter’s lunch in the way you creatively do so! The extra touch you put into all of Isadora’s lunches are so inspiring!

Danielle C - March 2, 2013 - 9:41 am

I have loved this lunch box since you first started to post pictures of them. I think it is a great and fun way to get kids to eat healthy, who wouldnt want to eat flower veggies. Also looks like it would clean up pretty easy. Thanks for the giveaway

Krina - March 2, 2013 - 10:05 am

I love the possibilities you have with this kind of lunchbox. Would really love to have fun, when my lil one starts kindergarten in the summer!

michele - March 2, 2013 - 10:26 am

I love the CheekyLime. :)

Amber Chapman - March 2, 2013 - 10:26 am

I have been using the Ziploc divided containers and have not been that impressed. I like packing the kids a variety of fresh fruits and veggies, yogurt, and whole grains. These planet boxes look like they would be perfect for my needs.

Amanda Brooks - March 2, 2013 - 10:30 am

My little guy will be going to kindergarden next year and this would be a perfect way for me to pack him healthy, creative, fun lunches!! I love the idea that everytime she opens up her lunch there will always be a fun new surprise. I’m sure she can’t wait for lunchtime everyday and I want my little man to have the same experience with this planet lunch box. Thank you for your consideration

Jess BP - March 2, 2013 - 11:05 am

I love Planet Boxes! I’ve been following different bento blogs that show all the fun tools to make food look cute. I’ve got egg molds on my wish list right now. My daughter is not in school yet, but it gives me plenty of time to practice. I also want to get a Planet Box for myself and husband. I like this size better than the launch size, because of all the different compartments.

Tuende Clark - March 2, 2013 - 1:23 pm

I would love to win this my daughter has hers picked out already! She thinks it is the coolest thing and so do I… I want to buy one in the future but would love to win it instead :D Thank you

Kim - March 2, 2013 - 1:58 pm

I’ve been a stalker for a while now!!!!! Now hopefully that’s got your attention, yes a stalker with the greatest of admiration of your work, and indeed your lifestyle. I love seeing your photographs, your updates and hearing your latest adventures with your beautiful and talented daughter. When you first posted your Planet Box pics I was straight to google and loved what I saw. My son is starting school this year and winning this Planet Box would be perfect! Have a great day x

Billy Hubbell - March 2, 2013 - 2:01 pm

I have 5 children and have been reading more lately about eating healthy. I would love to be able to pack a healthy lunch and know exactly what they are eating and to have it stay fresh and look so cool in the lunch box would be a bonus!

Jeanne Fleischhacker - March 2, 2013 - 4:25 pm

I sooooo love that you are doing this! If I had the extra funds right now, I would be purchasing this myself. Love, love, love the cute little shapes and all the creativity you use to out together Isadora’s lunches everyday. I used to do the same thing for my little one, but we used a tray that had 3 sections and was hard to keep it from getting all yucky and mixed together..this is perfect!

Dawn Fortner - March 2, 2013 - 6:35 pm

I love the Livy bag!

Dawn Fortner - March 2, 2013 - 6:43 pm

I would love to win this for my six year old son! He is Kindergarten, and is an incredibly picky eater, to say the least. He won’t eat pizza, cheeseburgers, mac and cheese, any sauces, etc. However, he will eat any kind of vegetable and fruit. Along with being picky, he also will not eat any food that is touching one another. I have got so many inspirational lunch ideas from your images you have posted of Isadora’s lunches! This box would be perfect to provide my son the nutritional lunches he needs (and wants!) while not letting anything touch at the same time. For a long time, I worried about my son and his eating habits (he is on the small side). However, the more I thought about it, I realized society has led me to believe that something was wrong with my son because he did not want, or like, all the fast food/unhealthy type foods. In reality, he has started amazing eating habits at a very young age. I would love to win this box to help my son continue on his path of healthy, yet FUN, eating! :-)

La Grâce Pamela - March 2, 2013 - 7:33 pm

I would love this for my 2 girls! I just love the organization and how it influences you to eat healthier!

Kelli - March 2, 2013 - 9:46 pm

My son in starting Kindergarten in September – plus he is a picky eater, This would make lunch time so much more fun!!!!! I’ve been checking out your photos of your lunches and they are so impressive!! I would love win one – so I can copy you!! :)

kristin - March 2, 2013 - 9:48 pm

i would love to win this for my soon to be kindergartner!!! <3

Laura Bryan - March 2, 2013 - 9:53 pm

My little munchkin will be starting preschool in the fall. I would love to get one of these to help continue his journey of healthy eating. They are beautiful boxes!

Heidi Miller - March 2, 2013 - 10:10 pm

Would love to win this for my son! :)

Nicole P - March 2, 2013 - 10:10 pm

I would love this for my kindergartener! It would make packing his lunch so much easier to have the little sections for each thing!

Jennifer Apsey-Vaughn - March 2, 2013 - 10:59 pm

I would like to win this for my daughter! She starts Kindergarden in the fall and has a ton of food allergies so trying to pack her healthy lunches that are enjoyable is always a challenge. I love that it is separated in sections so I can throw in a little of this a little of that!

Kassie - March 2, 2013 - 11:00 pm

I would LOVE to win one of these lunch boxes for my 6 1/2 year old little girl Kaylynn. I have 3 children, all of which are extremely picky. The only things I send to school with my daughter are either macaroni, (which obviously is already cold by the time lunch time comes around) and then she carries pizza rolls as well. (which again, are usually cold) I always try to send healthy snacks with her as well, but it would be awesome to send her some fruits that she likes that wouldn’t brown over by the time lunch came around. I could also send her turkey or ham, that wouldn’t be gross and warm by the time lunch came around! I would feel so much better about her eating lunch that stayed warm/cold the way it’s supposed to be. Fresh. I hate the way she eats now. It would be such a blessing for us to win one of these amazing lunchboxes!

Christine - March 2, 2013 - 11:02 pm

I would love to win a planet box so that I can send my daughter to my sisters house and her kids wouldn’t take her food because it’d be set up just for her!!:) Makes daycare lunches THAT MUCH EASIER to prepare!!! AND HEALTHIER!!!

Tracy Cary - March 2, 2013 - 11:06 pm

I love all the compartments that the planet box has.

Jamie G - March 2, 2013 - 11:14 pm

I’m a huge health-nut and I want the best for my kids. Packing school lunches is the only way for me!!! :)

Kiah - March 2, 2013 - 11:42 pm

I will <3 this lunch box for my daughter!!!

Grace H. - March 3, 2013 - 3:33 pm

I have had the hardest time trying to get my daughter to eat healthy, and ever since I started following your posts(and letting her see Isadora’s lunches) she’s actually begun to taste at least one bite before saying it’s gross…lol I think this box will help her feel proud and happy to eat more healthy items. I would absolutely LOVE to win one of these.

Patricia - March 3, 2013 - 4:21 pm

I would love to win a planetbox for daugther. My daugther starts kindergarten this year and she love eating her veggies and fruits.

Ginna - March 3, 2013 - 5:30 pm

I don’t have a Planetbox….yet! I have been drooling over them for MONTHS! I have 2 kids that are extremely picky and slow eaters. I think planetbox would help this soooo much!

melody - March 3, 2013 - 7:50 pm

Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity! I love seeing your creative ideas on how to keep our children healthy! I would love to win one of these for my son! How exciting!

Danielle Libby - March 3, 2013 - 7:53 pm

These look amazing! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

Lydia - March 3, 2013 - 7:54 pm

My three year old, Bella, is such a visual learner. She is also damn near a vegetarian by her own choice. I’d like to have the planet box to incorporate more meats and cheeses into her diet based on how they are presented to her!

Ericka - March 3, 2013 - 7:56 pm

Super excited about this giveaway! The Planet Box looks like so much fun, for me AND my daughter! Thanks! You are A-MA-ZING!!

Colleen Baumgardner - March 3, 2013 - 8:17 pm

I love the planetbox because everything has it’s perfect place!

Katie - March 3, 2013 - 8:29 pm

I LOVE that this separates each food and is a “greener” more eco friendly way to pack a lunch versus throwing away ziploc bags everyday. Thanks for introducing me to this great invention! :)

Jordan Hoppes - March 3, 2013 - 10:12 pm

I have been wanting one of these for my daughter since you started posting Isadora’s lunches! They look so amazing how you can have all the different parts and keep them all separate! No more plastic bags!

Stephanie Withrow - March 3, 2013 - 10:13 pm

I would love a planet box to have for my future children. It would be a great tool to have to make sure they are getting good amounts of the foods they need!

Nancy H - March 4, 2013 - 1:16 am

You’re so awesome about sharing things you think are great!

Nakoda - March 4, 2013 - 9:12 am

I love that it has so many different compartments instead of having to use ziplock bags

Jessie Elmore - March 4, 2013 - 10:11 am

I love cute lunchboxes:) Having a cute lunch box adds excitement to my day because eating the same old stuff can be boring!

Melissa Jean - March 4, 2013 - 10:42 am

These are fantastic! This would be so awesome.

Kyla - March 4, 2013 - 2:10 pm

I love how awesome this giveaway is and the fact that you are such a caring and amazing mother! <3

Laila Plant - March 4, 2013 - 3:22 pm

As a mommy, I ALWAYS worry about my child’s nutrition. Portion control is huge in our house just as much as offering nutritious meals that are delicious but good for my little one. Finding the perfect balance between all of these is also the staying warm and fresh. I am so happy you introduced us to the planet box lunchbox. With another little one on the way, this is surely going to make my life so much easier!

Jessica Souza - March 4, 2013 - 3:28 pm

I think every mommy should have a planet box – portion control AND eco-friendly!

I have officially added one to my ever growing mommy wish list!

Jaime B. - March 4, 2013 - 5:19 pm

The planet Lunchbox would be great for my daughter. She is just now learning to eat healthy after years of therapy. She has finally had a light bulb moment and decided she would like to try new things. This lunchbox would keep that going.

Maria J. - March 4, 2013 - 6:58 pm

I love that planet box teaches kids about smaller portions and variety! I also like that this box allows for such a variety without using baggies or all sorts of little plastic containers.

amnda - March 4, 2013 - 7:22 pm

I would love to win one! My three year old son will start school soon and I would love to send his lunches in a planet box, so practical and good for the enviroment!

Kayla Ruhm - March 4, 2013 - 7:24 pm

I love them because they offer me the option to give my kids a healthy meal! Even at school! I would LOVE to win one!!

amilyshurtz - March 4, 2013 - 7:36 pm

I love big photography conventions like Imaging of picture styles which can be used when shooting in modes such as manual, aperture and shutter priority. The creative control modes can only be used as their own independent modes, but you can increase or decrease the level of their affect.

Kristen Smith - March 4, 2013 - 8:09 pm

I love the portion size sections!

Christine - March 4, 2013 - 9:07 pm

I am envious of my children’s planet boxes and want my own!

Erin Christine Noie - March 4, 2013 - 9:43 pm

I would totally pack my daughter’s lunch if I could make cute stuff like yours! and the reuse-ability *is that a word?* awesome. I feel bad using baggies!!

Anne Milkie - March 4, 2013 - 9:54 pm

I love this!

Jenn - March 4, 2013 - 10:05 pm

My daughter and I would love to win the planet box, it will perfect gift for “8 Martie” ~ Mother’s day in Romania! LIDIA and ISADORA you both are such an inspiration for our family :) God bless you always!

Katie - March 5, 2013 - 4:51 am

I love planet box because of all the nice size compartments. Most of the fruits and veggies I pack for my son either take up so much room because of the Tupperware or get mushed. I really want to provide a healthy lunch for him and feel planet box would help me. Thanks for the great giveaway

amanda onstott - March 5, 2013 - 7:50 am

love these! love how the food stays separated! so cool!

Erika Moore - March 5, 2013 - 7:56 am

Planet box looks like it would make lunch fun for kids and easy for parents to pack lunch!

Charlene Hopkins - March 5, 2013 - 8:06 am

I have wanted one of these for my son Wyatt for soooo long! I love how creative you are! I’ve tried a few different lunch boxes but ours always breaks and doesn’t have all the options of planet box! Thank you…

misty redfern - March 5, 2013 - 8:28 am

Oh how is love to win. I’ve been drooling over these boxes for a while, but needing two my husband quickly shuts it down due to the price. They are stop awesome and our 8 year olds prefer healthy meals but also don’t like things touching so we’ve been using a ton of baggies and containers to keep that horrible thing from happening Lol. This would save on dishes, waste, and my sanity

Tomi - March 5, 2013 - 8:37 am

I love the design and style. I would love to add it to my small stock on lunch boxes

Kim - March 5, 2013 - 8:38 am

What a great lunchbox!! Wish I had this one when I was a child. I think it even beats out my old Brady Bunch one!!! Thanks for offering this fantastic give-away!

Kathy - March 5, 2013 - 8:38 am

Love this and the way it looks like you can put a good assortment of food in it!

Melissa - March 5, 2013 - 8:39 am

Love how organized it makes things!

Kathy - March 5, 2013 - 8:39 am

I love the planet box because it has divided sections to keep the food separated and it is stainless steel and not plastic so it is much better for you and I love the case it comes in. I just love everything about it!!

Debbie B - March 5, 2013 - 8:39 am

These are great! Would love to win one as we’re sending our daughter back to school next year – after homeschooling, so I’ll need to be packing lunches daily. Would love to send her off with a cute, healthy lunch!

Brandy - March 5, 2013 - 8:39 am

I sure would love this…it looks like it makes lunch fun!

Marisa - March 5, 2013 - 8:40 am

I’d love planet boxes for my boys! I haven’t purchased them as they are a bit out of my budget, but I love the fact that they have compartments for different foods as well as little containers to pack “liquid” items as well. Thanks for such an awesome giveaway!

holly - March 5, 2013 - 8:40 am

I love all the different spots to have a well rounded meal. I love that itsmeant to help kids eat healthy.

Sasha - March 5, 2013 - 8:40 am

When I first saw that you would be doing this giveaway I saw so pumped! I searched everywhere for these lunchboxes, but we don’t have anything similar here in Ukraine. So, I would really want one! Love bringing healthy snacks with me to work. And bringing it all in just one lunchbox, instead of multiple small boxes, would be just perfect! :)

Gina - March 5, 2013 - 8:40 am

These are so amazing! And so are you :)

Keri Harrison - March 5, 2013 - 8:41 am

I absolutely love the planet box! I love how simple it is, eco friendly, can go in the dishwasher and lots of little spots for a healthy lunch!

Oh my goodness! To have everything in these little perfect sections, my daughter would just love love love this. Yesterday, while eating her lunch she accidentally swallowed her tooth! I wish we could post pictures here of our fun exchanges between her and the “tooth fairy”. Her note to the tooth fairy: “Dear toof fairy, would you leave me something special because I swallowed my tooth” Letter complete with teeth drawn at the bottom :)

Shannon - March 5, 2013 - 8:42 am

Tami T. - March 5, 2013 - 8:43 am

I would love this!! I’m trying to get my little guy to eat healthy & this box might encourage him to be more adventurous with food.

Jennifer Landry - March 5, 2013 - 8:43 am

I love the planet boxes because of all the separate compartments. How awesome to have all your food, in one place. My son would love to bring this lunch box to school everyday. Being in kindergarten, he loves variety, and I would love to be able to fill this with a huge array of the foods he loves, for his lunch!

Stace Butcher - March 5, 2013 - 8:43 am

I’d love to store my healthy lunches in this!!

Elizabeth - March 5, 2013 - 8:43 am

Chelsie Bowden - March 5, 2013 - 8:43 am

This lunch box is just adorable! My boys would love it!

Laura Thiesse - March 5, 2013 - 8:45 am

I have heard nothing but rave reviews of this box. Portion control, variety of food spaces, and your photos are all bonuses!

Kristie - March 5, 2013 - 8:45 am

I have a 14 year daughter who I think of everytime I see you posting your daughters lunch on Facebook! I am not always able to pack her lunch for her in the mornings before work, but she always makes the effort to pack her own healthy lunch every day!! I am always so proud of her!!

Christina Treece - March 5, 2013 - 8:46 am

I love planet boxes because they are good for the environment, durable, and an easy way to provide our kids with healthy nutrient packed lunches!

Sarah Naulls - March 5, 2013 - 8:46 am

I just LOVE seeing how creative you are.. not only in your photography but everyday life!! You make lunch SO appealing!! My little guy starts school next year and I am baffled what to send for him for a “Garbageless Lunch” that they can still actually open.. these would be perfect!!!

Brooke Moxley - March 5, 2013 - 8:47 am

I would love to win it because I’m also packing my sons lunch. This seems a lot environmentally friendly than the plastic bags and plastic containers that I’m using now!

Elizabeth C. - March 5, 2013 - 8:47 am

What a neat little luchbox! Great giveaway!

Lindsey Harwath - March 5, 2013 - 8:48 am

My daughter has always been great at eating a variety of foods but when we go out- and I know when she goes to school- those choices just AREN’T available! I looked at getting a PlanetBox last year but with our second baby on the way and my husband losing his job I just couldn’t afford it. Would love to get one now to help keep my Naomi on the right food track! Thanks for hosting this giveaway and being an inspiration to struggling moms everywhere! <3

June - March 5, 2013 - 8:48 am

I like/want Planet box because I have 3 rambunctious little boys who need to eat healthy AND who destruct everything… This box looks indestructible! ;)

Tammy - March 5, 2013 - 8:48 am

I would love the PlanetBox lunch box.

Allie Hickernell - March 5, 2013 - 8:48 am

Erica Townsend - March 5, 2013 - 8:49 am

I would LOVE to win a Planet Box. It looks like such a nice way to send a lunch without having to use any plastic bags to separate the food. Thank you so much for holding this giveaway!

Nicole Oncale - March 5, 2013 - 8:49 am

I am a proud Mother of 2. My kids are a bit older and bringing lunch to school isn’t so cool. :/ BUT….I do follow a story of a grieving Mother whom just lost her child and the reasoning is still undetermined. His name is Tripp. Tripp Marquez. Tripp’s mother has another son that I would in return give this lunch box too. Bless her heart she is fighting for peace, understanding, explanations, and most of all she is fighting to be a mother to her sweet baby boy while grieving her sweet Tripp. https://m.facebook.com/RememberingTrippMarquez?id=268826396573406&_rdr

Take Care! Good Luck to all the Mommies out there, and don’t forget to squeeze your babies tight bc we are all on borrowed time.

Amy - March 5, 2013 - 8:49 am

This would be WONDERFUL for my son for when he starts school full time! Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win one!

Laura Thiesse - March 5, 2013 - 8:49 am

I have heard nothing but rave reviews of this box. Portion control, variety of food spaces, and your photos are all bonuses! In my 7 year olds words, your photos make the food look, “pretty darn yummy!” ;-)

Kelly Trevino - March 5, 2013 - 8:50 am

I so love this lunchbox!! I currently use all kinds of containers for my kid’s lunches and I’d love to use something like this instead. Thanks to both you and Planet Box for this giveaway! YOUR ROCK!!

Cathy - March 5, 2013 - 8:50 am

I love these lunch boxes! I think they really are a great way to give your kids a variety at lunch time! I would like to work towards having my kids eat healthier and what a great way to start if I were to win this lunch box! (Of course I’d have to buy 4 more for my other kids, but hey, it’s worth it!)

Diane Poff - March 5, 2013 - 8:50 am

These look amazing, thank you for offering these for one of us to win.

Morgan - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

The PlanetBox is awesome, I need one for my little girl!

Megan Reed - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

i think one of these boxes would help my daughter eat better. She really hates eatin meals and I think if I took some of your ideas that yoi do with your daughter . My daughter mught get excited to eat. She is almost four and at that picky stage.

stephanie street - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

Such a great giveaway, thanks for doing it!

Mira Dermody - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

I like the Planet Box because my daughter has SPD sensory processing disorder and will only eat foods that are separated. The compartments could hold a lot of different items for her.

Chrissy Richardet - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

I have learned about this lunch box through your photography page and fell in love!!! My husband is in the military and I’m a SAHM with 3 kids under 5! My oldest will be in Kindergarten next year and is VERY VERY picky with her food! I do special things to get her to eat her food and this would make it 10x better! I feel like she would LOVE it that much more for school and actually eat!! Thank you so much for your thoughts and about posting this for everyone else to see!! With 3 kids I will have to ask family to help pitch in on them because we do picnics and outings a lot ;) This would make it that much more fun!!! Thank you!!!! Hope you and your family have a great day!

Heather - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

How do I not know about these? So much better than the plastic mess I use right now.

Amanda - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

Would love to win this lunchbox for my little girl! I always read your posts about your little princesses lunch! You are such an inspiration to other moms!

Alison - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

I don’t have children yet, but I have to take my lunch to work most days and this would be great to have! then eventually I can use it for my children. (:

Leitia Prentice - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

I love how this lunch box makes eating healthy easy :)

Bethany - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

These boxes are adorable and Earth friendly…. That makes me happy :)

Nadine A - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

I would loooove to win the PlanetBox for my 5 year old who’s starting kindergarten this year. Being from Germany I prefer environmentally-friendly, non-plastic products, so the minute I saw this one, I was sold.

Abby Lefebure - March 5, 2013 - 8:52 am

I would love a planet lunchbox for my daughter, who has multiple food allergies, to try to make lunch fun again! I think the presentation of the food in the box alone would make each meal a little sweeter :)

Peggy - March 5, 2013 - 8:53 am

I absolutely adore the planet lunchbox. I’d love to finally own one as well. It would be nice to give it a try and see how well it works with one child before purchasing for the other two. Just by viewing I can tell it makes giving a variety of different foods easier and more fun. The littles could even make their own lunches since there’s no bags or containers to deal with.

Jen - March 5, 2013 - 8:53 am

I’d LOVE to win one of these for my son who is starting K this fall! (sniff sniff :( )

Kitska - March 5, 2013 - 8:55 am

I would love to have one of these for my little guy!

Bonnie Lewis-Tschannen - March 5, 2013 - 8:56 am

A great way to encourage healthy eating in our busy lives.

Danielle White - March 5, 2013 - 8:56 am

I would be so happy to win this! I never win anything haha. I have four kids who I support on my own and having such a nice lunch box for my youngest would be such a treat for her! She is the only one of my kids young enough to think it is fun :) ….thank you for this wonderful giveaway! Good luck to everyone!

Lindsey Theisen - March 5, 2013 - 8:56 am

What isn’t there to LOVE about this lunchbox!? As a girl who still doesn’t really like having her food touch and is slightly OCD about organization this is a perfect match for my almost Kindergartner!

Thanks for the give-away and the lunch box inspiration Oh So Posh!

Lindsay M. - March 5, 2013 - 8:57 am

My little one is starting Kindy this year and this lunch box would be PERFECT for the healthy foods he loves to chow down on! Thanks for having a giveaway!

Beth Distefano - March 5, 2013 - 8:57 am

Awesome Mom. Awesome Photographer. Awesome giveaway! Thank You! :)

Amber - March 5, 2013 - 8:57 am

I’d really, really be so happy if I won this/these! I am not the healthiest eating/feeding mom & I am working really hard to change that! Both my husband & I have started keeping more veg & fruit in the house and we are working with our daughter to get her eating veggies again too. I really want my daughter, who is 7, to improve her eating habits. I hate sending her to school everyday to eat whatever garbage they feed her there. When I do pack her a lunch, I have to use a ton of zip-lock baggies and cram them into her little lunch-purse. This planet box it the most amazing lunchbox I’ve ever seen! Everyone in my family could benefit from one! I’ve entered on Instagram as well. Thank you! <3

Nikki - March 5, 2013 - 8:58 am

I have an extremely picky eater and I think she would love how everything is separated and nice and neat. I know she would love having her food cut up in cute shapes. I think anyone would. ;) We love love love this lunchbox!

Amanda S. - March 5, 2013 - 8:58 am

What a great idea! I never knew these existed! Thanks for the chance to win. :)

Erika Turke - March 5, 2013 - 8:58 am

I would love to win this planet box for my daughter because, well, her health is the most important thing to me of course:) This box inspires so many great ideas to pack a healthier lunch for her as it keeps all our healthy choices FRESH and stays either hot or cold for a yummy lunch! Lidia, you have inspired SOOO many….and in so many ways <3

JENNIFER BAPTISTA - March 5, 2013 - 8:59 am

I love this box. It would be a creative way to get my teenage daughter to eat her lunch

Jennifer - March 5, 2013 - 8:59 am

I love that I can put a variety into my daughter’s lunch while keeping things separate.

Kassi - March 5, 2013 - 9:00 am

Love you work, love your posts, love your spirit and life story, and I love these lunch boxes! So nifty!!

Eva - March 5, 2013 - 9:00 am

I love the little compartments. My daughter will be starting a full day of school this September and we would love to have something like this for her. She loves her stuff all separate and not touching eachother so this seems like a perfect choice.
Thank You

Kathlyn Baker - March 5, 2013 - 9:00 am

LOVE this.. I so need one of these for my grandson.

Rebecca - March 5, 2013 - 9:01 am

My daughter is headed off to JK in the fall, and this would be the perfect lunchbox to get her started off right! *crossing my fingers*

Courtney Rust - March 5, 2013 - 9:02 am

This is awesome, thanks!

Greta - March 5, 2013 - 9:02 am

I have been wanting to get these for my 2 girls so bad!!! They look so awesome!!!!!

Abby Bennett - March 5, 2013 - 9:02 am

I would love to have one of these lunchboxes! I have two small children, one of which is almost in VPK. I would love for him to start learning about good food choices and to also learn myself about some of them. I sometimes overlook the importance of portion sizes because I am just happy that he is eating SOMETHING! I think this box will help myslef give him a better idea of good food choices and maybe even turn it into a learning experience of him helping me pick out which fruits and vegis he gets to put in it! :)

Jennifer - March 5, 2013 - 9:03 am

I love that the box has little compartments to separate the food and I love that it isn’t plastic!

Nicole Dalton - March 5, 2013 - 9:04 am


Amanda Apjok - March 5, 2013 - 9:04 am

I would love to win one of these planet boxes for my daughter as she starts 1st grade this coming year. We are striving to eat healthier to overcome many sicknesses between her and myself,and one of these would make that so much easier for me to pack her healthy amazing lunches.

Morgan Kervin - March 5, 2013 - 9:05 am

I don’t have a planet box, although I have been eying it for my little ones. My kids, and whole family, love to eat healthy….and packing that into a standard lunch box means lots of containers – which leads to less of the good stuff because of the bulky containers. Planet box is just genius, honestly!

Michelle Langley - March 5, 2013 - 9:05 am

Love all the compartments!!

Rhiannon Metzger - March 5, 2013 - 9:05 am

I love the whole Bento concept, my twins seem to be more excited to eat their lunch. Planet box just makes the creativity of Bento easier ;)

Kerstin - March 5, 2013 - 9:07 am

that would be a great way to take my lunch to work ;-) No more smashed fruits…

Tiffany - March 5, 2013 - 9:07 am

Love this. Would be great for packing the healthy fruits and vegetables.

Carolin - March 5, 2013 - 9:07 am

Love all your products you show and love this too!

Stephanie DeArco - March 5, 2013 - 9:08 am

I think the Planet Box is one of the cutest and most amazing things ever. You can make eating fun and healthy! Also, I like how the food is sort of already “portioned” for you so you don’t put too much of one thing!! What an amazing idea and giveaway! Thanks!

Megan Klugh - March 5, 2013 - 9:08 am

Would love a planet box for my kids for school! Yeah for no plastic! What a great idea!

Griselle - March 5, 2013 - 9:08 am

Loved this lunch box the minute I saw you post a picture of it. What a great way to pack a healthy lunch.

Amanda - March 5, 2013 - 9:08 am

I would love to have this lunch box for my daughter. She will be starting kindergarten in August and this would be perfect!!

Jessica - March 5, 2013 - 9:08 am

We have 4 boys between the ages of 11 and 4. They all have multiple food allergies (which has effectively cleaned our eating habits up). I pack their lunch everyday for school. These lunchboxes would be great for them! Definitely going to have to look into them more…

Diana G - March 5, 2013 - 9:09 am

I would love to win this lunch box because I think it would be a perfect item to have as my child will be getting ready to start school this year. He is one picky eater but I have noticed when I take the time to cut up his food in different shapes and make it colorful it becomes fun for him. Awesome giveaway! I really hope I win!!!:)

brooke douglass - March 5, 2013 - 9:09 am

I need this!!!! My baby girl goes to kindergarten in Aug and she needs to be the coolest one with this box!!! Brooke

Heidi K. - March 5, 2013 - 9:09 am

My son has a few different food allergies that limit his food options. I try to be as creative as I can so he doesn’t get the same old things every day. These Planet Boxes are a very fun way to serve up good things!

Krystal Santos - March 5, 2013 - 9:12 am

I absolutely love your fresh, colorful outlook on life!! I would love to win one of these lunch boxes for my son. He will start school in the fall and the Planet Box would allow me to send him everyday with healthy, FUN options that he may not otherwise receive.

You are so wonderful for the giveaways that you do and for always giving to others! Such an inspiration to myself and many others. Thank you so much!!

Jolene Messerschmidt - March 5, 2013 - 9:12 am

Its cute and holds alot!

Stephanie - March 5, 2013 - 9:13 am

I like PlanetBoxes b/c they’re an economical way to pack lunch and they help keep everything contained into little sections.

Kristen - March 5, 2013 - 9:16 am

These boxes are SO COOL! I don’t have any children, I myself have been trying to eat healthier and it’s been really hard! I think having one of these boxes where I could divide my food and portion would help out a ton. Since the day you posted one forverrr ago, I’ve wanted to get one. :)

Trisha Berens - March 5, 2013 - 9:18 am

I love that it’s not plastic!

Fernanda Rite - March 5, 2013 - 9:20 am

I woke up and saw the lunch box pic on my Facebook, didn’t even read the post. I was going to ask you where did you buy those…:-) My daughter Gabby ( 4 years old ) was diagnosed with diabetes type 1 2 weeks ago…our life has turned upside down. I have been searching for everything that will make her life easier. Best, Fer.

Crystal H - March 5, 2013 - 9:20 am

I am going to have to look into the Planet box, they look really cool, and very useful.

Kristy - March 5, 2013 - 9:20 am

I love all the different sections to put food!

Ana - March 5, 2013 - 9:20 am

I have been stalking planet box for sales for the last 2 years! My son goes to daycare full time and I try to be creative with his lunches despite the limited number of food he would eat. This year he will start kindergarten and this is my perfect excuse to buy one. I love the design and my son does eat better if the all food is presented at the same time. The Planet Box is perfect for this!!

Tara Sipe - March 5, 2013 - 9:20 am

I’d LOVE to win one of these planet boxes!! I’ve recently started a get healthy mission and am trying to my young children in the healthy eating habits now!

P.S. Rachel Vanoven has a group for motivation/support for anyone trying to lose weight/get healthy!! #RVPgetfit

jessica - March 5, 2013 - 9:20 am

I would love to win one of plant lunch boxes for my kids! Your pictures just look amazing! I love the style of them and packing a healthy lunch in such a fun way!!!!! Thanks for the giveaway!!!!

Lisa Lord - March 5, 2013 - 9:21 am

I love this lunch box. I feel like I get in such a rut packing lunches and I think this would help me to be more creative and healthy for the kids!

Andrea - March 5, 2013 - 9:21 am

I’d love to win one of these for my daughter!! I love the organization this box offers!!

Christin Harris - March 5, 2013 - 9:22 am

I love these boxes!! It’s great that I don’t have to worry about plastics! And the compartments don’t mix the food:) thanks so mug for this giveaway:)

Karrie - March 5, 2013 - 9:23 am

My sons would love to take these along for a picnic this spring when we head in to town.

Tiffany Seghini - March 5, 2013 - 9:23 am

I love this! You make the lunches look so cute and yummy! I love seeing our kids eating healthy. Anything that gets kids excited about healthy eating is wonderful!

Carri - March 5, 2013 - 9:25 am

I love that it has the different compartments for portion sizes.

Emily - March 5, 2013 - 9:26 am

These lunch boxes look great, and I have heard such great things from your blog and others about them. I would love to win one, I will be ordering one for my soon to be kindergartener if I don’t win. Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

Gwen Gladden - March 5, 2013 - 9:28 am

I want this for myself working in a school we always have to bring our lunch to eat on the go plus all the cute shapes could spice it up. Who knows maybe the kids will start eating more healthy.

Andrea Place - March 5, 2013 - 9:29 am

I’ve been wanting one of these for so long!! My picky little eater would do much better to have several options in small portions. PERFECT for us!! I would SO love to win this!

Brianne Grossman - March 5, 2013 - 9:33 am

Love these things! Thanks for the giveaway!

Missi - March 5, 2013 - 9:34 am

My daughter loves to take her lunch to school, every thing gets squished in the baggies. These boxes are such an awesome product and the quantities are just perfect for little ones…less waste….

Calah Sullivan - March 5, 2013 - 9:36 am

First off-I love your work and how you’re such an amazing mom. Following your planet box photos on Instagram has inspired me to make a difference in the lunches I prepare. Thanks!! Good luck to everyone entering the contest!

Alison Senesac - March 5, 2013 - 9:38 am

My daughter is starting full-day kindergarten next year, which came as quite a surprise to us. The school district just changed the half-day/full-day “requirements”, so she will be there for lunch, and it would be so AWESOME to be able to send her off with a nutritious lunch!

Tara - March 5, 2013 - 9:39 am

I am trying so hard to be eco friendly and i want one of these so bad. I think it will help cut back on trash and also on the bpa’s that we get from the plastic containers everyone uses.

Jennifer - March 5, 2013 - 9:40 am

I love that this box makes healthy lunch look fun and cool!

Karina Cronk - March 5, 2013 - 9:40 am

My daughter is going to kindergarten on September. I think this is a fun way to do her lunch & keep the food separate. This is a win win.

Jen Tabish - March 5, 2013 - 9:40 am

I love the Planet Boxes because you can get so creative with them. It would be like a surprise every time you open it for lunch. My daughter would love it!

Charlotte Doucett - March 5, 2013 - 9:42 am

My son and I have food allergies. Packing a lunch for him is always a challenge. What I can pack in a typical lunch box is limited as individual containers are heavy so we tend to stick with the same boring foods. This lunch box would give him plenty of choices and not weigh down his backpack. I am beyond excited about this giveaway!

Jenn - March 5, 2013 - 9:48 am

Love these boxes, love the giveaway! Thank you so much!

Heather - March 5, 2013 - 9:48 am

These boxes look AMAZING!!! Would love to have one for my little man. :-)

Jessie Sarrazin - March 5, 2013 - 9:52 am

I’m just getting ready to send my daughter to preschool… I’m going to need all the lunch packing help I can get!!

Nikki Edmeier - March 5, 2013 - 9:56 am

What a great giveaway. Thanks!

May Y. - March 5, 2013 - 9:56 am

Because we live on earth, this planet lunch box is perfect for us human to pack out food. Love the creation n love live the creative name.

Candace A. - March 5, 2013 - 9:57 am

I just LOVE the Planet Box!! My daughter starts Kindergarten in The fall and I would love to send her to school with one of these!! I can be creative with her healthy lunches!!

Rachelle Suchanek - March 5, 2013 - 9:59 am

I would love to win the planet box. I have two children that love to take their lunches however alot like you said in your post they always come home with half the lunch saying the didn’t see if ect… This give away is awesome! You are very inspiring!

Carolynn - March 5, 2013 - 10:01 am

I love the planet box because the school my daughter goes to doesn’t offer lunches at all and even if they did the school lunches are never truly healthy. So this would be an easier way to make healthy lunches everyday. She needs the divided sections because things can’t touch and it would take lots of wasteful bags or bulky tupperware. I just love the lack of waste.

Amanda - The Paper Arrow - March 5, 2013 - 10:01 am

I love this planet box lunch carrier for so many reasons. Easy to clean! Easy to pack! No more using up wasteful ziplock bags! Healthy fresh food!

The only downside I’ve found is that I’m wondering how you send food that needs to be warmed up? The metal containers can’t be put in the microwave at schools and I’m always wondering about this. Sometimes I would like to send a bit of leftovers to heat up during the winter. Hmmm.

But YES! I love these boxes. :) Would love to win one for my daughter. My son has one and I can’t quite afford one for her yet.

Heather Britt - March 5, 2013 - 10:02 am

I would love to send my son off to his first year of school with such a great eco friendly lunch box. I really try to push healthy eating habits and any tricks to help along the way is great.

Stacey Lawlor - March 5, 2013 - 10:02 am

Oh Lydia…I am such a fan of yours! I would love to win this lunch box for my little one. We pack healthy lunches but would love to be more creative with them!

Andrea Joevenazzo - March 5, 2013 - 10:04 am

Love these lunch boxes!!! Here’s hoping for a win:)

Neallie - March 5, 2013 - 10:05 am

I can’t wait to stop using so many baggies in my son’s lunch! This planet box is perfect!

Janie Ewton - March 5, 2013 - 10:05 am

i would love to win one of these!! <3

Marina - March 5, 2013 - 10:07 am

I love how creative you are with your daughter’s lunch!

Nike Peterson - March 5, 2013 - 10:07 am

I have been swooning over these boxes for months now and would LOVE to win! I have six kiddos and love the utility and spacing on these. Fingers crossed ….

Mary - March 5, 2013 - 10:09 am

I would LOVE One of these for my 5 year old for school as he LOVES his veggies and dip and is happiest when he doesn’t have to open containers to get to them. This would make his lunches soo fun!!

Victoria Morris - March 5, 2013 - 10:11 am

I know most people would like this box for their children, but I actually want one for myself. I’m a full time student and its really hard to eat properly at the college. I’ve gained 20 lbs since last August from all the stops at McDonalds and unhealthy foods they sell in the campus store. Yuck! I’m working that off now at the gym while trying my best to not make the same mistakes. Thanks for the giveaway!

Elizabeth Graham - March 5, 2013 - 10:12 am

The Planetbox lunch box is the coolest lunch box I’ve ever seen. I have a son in 1st grade and my daughter will be in Kindergarten in the fall. We would get a lot of use out of these. Thank You!

Hanna - March 5, 2013 - 10:12 am

I love the planet box because it has so many compartments, allowing us to pack a variety of food instead of just one or two basic food items. I also really love the fact that it is not made from plastic, which is bad for our environment. Thank you so much for giving your readers and followers a chance to win one of these! :)

Sabine Cane - March 5, 2013 - 10:13 am

I would LOVE to win this lunchbox. It would enable me to make her Kindergarten lunches much more appealing and accessible for her. :)

Leigh Ann Keller Williams - March 5, 2013 - 10:14 am

I love this box! I’m moving my son and myself over to clean eating and this would be awesome to send his non processes food to school in!!

Jamie Tussey - March 5, 2013 - 10:14 am

this lunch box seems like a very eco friendly choice. i also like the different places to put food. it would seem to help you with portion control.

Katy Gitto - March 5, 2013 - 10:15 am

Planet Box lunch boxes would solve so many issues I have with keeping my kiddos’ food the right temperature! I would love to be able to pack so many tasty fruits and vegetables and meats and cheeses in the lunch box without the worry of it spoiling! Thank you for this opportunity!

Vanessa - March 5, 2013 - 10:16 am

My two little ones are fussy eaters … a planet box may just do the trick in getting them to venture out and try new, healthy foods!

heidi s. - March 5, 2013 - 10:21 am

I love this! And the lunches that you pack for the beautiful Isadora inspire healthier lunches for many Moms packing their kid’s lunches. Thank you!

Kat popp - March 5, 2013 - 10:31 am

I am so beyond in love with this lunchbox! I run a daycare and all my kids are picky eaters! If I could have something like this to excite them about meals maybe I could get them to eat different foods!! As well as showing the parents these awesome lunch boxes and telling them they need to get one!! I would love one for my hubby as well!! He packs a lunch everyday and one of these would make things so much easier!!

Denielle Goble - March 5, 2013 - 10:35 am

What a great way to stay green and feed the kids a healthy and fun meal to eat!!!!!!

TONYA B - March 5, 2013 - 10:52 am

I want a plantbox for my child since it keeps food colder and has great portion sizes. This box and other people posting foods inspire me to feed my child different things and hopefully it will help with her health issues she seems to have when she eats school lunch.

Elizabeth W. - March 5, 2013 - 10:58 am

I love your work! And have been eyeing this lunch box for ages! Having one would be wonderful and making packing healthy lunches so much easier. As well as make cleaning easier. Cleaning store bought lunch boxes and all the containers that go along with them are a pain! It would be great to have a lunch box for the littles that promotes healthy eating and a healthy environment!!

Shari M - March 5, 2013 - 11:01 am

I want a Plantbox for my daughter. Id love to see her eat healthier and make better choices. This has inspired me to make healthy food fun for my children. :) thank you for the opportunity to win such a great lunchbox.

Jenica Schul - March 5, 2013 - 11:05 am

If I had this nifty little box that let me bring a variety of foods for lunch without bringing 5 different tupperwares, that would be fantastic!

Shel - March 5, 2013 - 11:14 am

Is it horrible that I totally want one for me?!

Heather S. - March 5, 2013 - 11:17 am

I have three boys and have been wanting to get these for them for a while. We have been working on eating better, and I think this will help with lunchtime too :) Thanks for having this offer!

Ashley noble - March 5, 2013 - 11:23 am

These lunch boxes are great! Would love to win one. Thanks so much!

Molly - March 5, 2013 - 11:36 am

I would LOVE to win this :)

michelle shampo - March 5, 2013 - 11:36 am

I would love a planet box to send with my kids to school it looks so much easier to organize kid size portions and also give them a variety I also would love to try some of your cute ideas!!

Sami RIley - March 5, 2013 - 11:39 am

I love the idea of the planetwise lunch box because our kids lunch period is so short once you put everything in its own container, it takes them too long to make it through everything. My daughter always comes home hungry and eating the rest of her lunch on the bus because she never has enough time. Opening one container and having it all right there is amazing!

Kristan H - March 5, 2013 - 11:42 am

I like the PlanetBox because it keeps the food separated and can be used for years!

Christina Tartaro - March 5, 2013 - 11:46 am

Hi Lidia,
Ive followed you for a while now, Im not a photographer but LOVE to follow many photographers because the art is amazing to me. You are one of my favorites because you are inspiring and you share a little bit of everything! Im a Mom too so I never know what I might take away from one of your posts :) The Planet Box really caught my eye because recently my husband started counting calories and eating healthier. This would be perfect for him so I can give him a variety of things in small quantities. I also have three children and Id love to get one for each! Thanks for the daily inspiration,

Deanna Hassler - March 5, 2013 - 12:05 pm

Love all the creative lunches you make Isadora. I think I’ve got my 10 year old daughter obsessed with looking at your photos of her. She just started gymnastics and always asks me if she will be as good as her. So cute. And she is begging for a planetbox lunchbox. <3

Amanda - March 5, 2013 - 12:13 pm

My daughter would love having lunches like this made for her and I would love coming up with creative ideas!

Amy Holmes - March 5, 2013 - 12:38 pm

Thank you so much for the opportunity! I love watching you post pictures on Instagram and Facebook of your beautiful daughter and cute, fun things that mommy’s get to do–like making lunches! I love spending the time making my family meals. I think it would be one of the things I would put on a survey if I was asked what my hobbies are. Can’t wait to see who wins–and excited to purchase my first if it isn’t me. Thanks again!

Carey Fasano - March 5, 2013 - 12:40 pm

You have inspired me to make healthier lunches for my boys. Thank you!

Kristin Beckman - March 5, 2013 - 12:41 pm

Love the Planet Boxes because if three boys in one house love them, you as a parent do. It’s fun to have variety in small sizes in small places for small people.

Tina Pearce - March 5, 2013 - 12:42 pm

I would LOVE this! We are on the go ALOT and this would be perfect for bringing snacks for my two little guys!

Stacia - March 5, 2013 - 12:42 pm

I would love to win this!!!!

Alina - March 5, 2013 - 12:42 pm

My daughter would love this as she is going to start school soon and we both love eating healthy! All the extra little shapes are so cute. It definatly would encourage us to continue eating the right things!

Tammy Schlievert - March 5, 2013 - 12:57 pm

I love this lunch box! I had not seen it until recently. I would love to get one of these! Thanks for sponsoring 2 of them in addition to the one they are giving away!!

Elaine Dieball - March 5, 2013 - 12:58 pm

I can’t tell you how much this satisfies any borderline OCD that I keep hidden from the world. LOL

Sarita - March 5, 2013 - 12:59 pm

So excited for this giveaway! Fingers crossed :)

Adriane - March 5, 2013 - 1:03 pm

My daughter would LOVE the Planet Box! I started packing her lunches everyday after we learned she has junvenile arthritis. Having this fun lunch box for her would be awesome! Anything to make taking lunch more exciting! I’m sure all the other kiddos would want one too!

BriAnna Denbow - March 5, 2013 - 1:11 pm

I would love to get my children out of the fast Lunchable routine and into something much healthier!

Erika - March 5, 2013 - 1:24 pm

I have been looking into lunch boxes like this for awhile. I love the idea of these creative lunches and think that it helps you keep things fresh and healthy for your kids! It doesn’t always have to be a pb&j sandwich!

Mandy Sexton - March 5, 2013 - 1:30 pm

I would love fort son to have one of these lunch boxes! He began a gluten-free diet a few months ago in order to alleviate some of his severe asthma symptoms, and the way he eats has changed dramatically. Instead if a big thermos of spaghetti and meatballs with a banana or Oreos for dessert, he eats a little of this and a little of that: a handful of strawberries, half an apple in slices, half a banana, a handful of potato chips, a cup if pineapple slices, a cup of corn flakes, etc. His lunchbox is so full of baggies, he doesn’t know what he has unless he takes it all out and spreads it across the table! Sometimes things get crushed by his drink thermos. :-/ I think this lunch this lunchbox would simplify things for both of us!

Heather Kasvinsky - March 5, 2013 - 1:35 pm

My daughter would love the Planet Box because of all the compartments that allow her to eat several things at the same time…they make eating more fun! It is so cool how many things you can fit in the lunch box and the fact that it doesn’t leak, even with sauces, is AMAZING!

Jonell - March 5, 2013 - 1:36 pm

I just wanted to comment and say how much I love your work and also how much I love that you incorporate your daughter so much. It seems like you have an amazing relationship with her. After all you’ve been through, you are such an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your life with all of us.

Mary Beth Westward - March 5, 2013 - 1:52 pm

Hi Lidia. Love the PlanetBox! So, what can I say? I have two little girls that love to cook with me. We strive to be healthy, athletic and “outdoorsy”. Our best friends are teaching my family the business of self-sustained farming. We now love knowing exactly where our food comes from. And more importantly, that it is from a farm that has won awards for their farming practice ethics and their respect for the animals and the land. We live a happy and creative lifestyle…all while stressing the importance of respecting our environment. In fact, it is the cultural norm up here where we live in New Hampshire. For that, we feel so lucky. The Planet Box is us! :) In fact, I am so bummed I did not invent this. Bravo! – Mary Beth

I’m really hoping to win! I am currently trying to eat clean and it is tough. All of the prep and storage for lunch is causing a stack of dishes everyday. This would really cut down on my use of storage containers!

Lisa Gomes - March 5, 2013 - 1:57 pm

I love healthy and I love Planet Box!

magda - March 5, 2013 - 2:01 pm

I would love to have this box. For now its, really hard work to put different food in one storage box that are available in store at my place. Love it. And I love your work!

Rachael Dziulak - March 5, 2013 - 2:05 pm

I love that my daughter found a lunch box that she is actually willing to carry! I also love the organization and that I can be creative packing her lunch! The peace of mind knowing that my little love is eating healthy… PRICELESS!!!!

Kelly C - March 5, 2013 - 2:09 pm

A friend of mine has these boxes for her 2 daughters and they are amazing! I would love to win one for my daughter! :-)

Cj - March 5, 2013 - 2:36 pm

Would love to win this for hubby. I so enjoy your blog and facebook page. Thanks

Kristin - March 5, 2013 - 3:05 pm

A happy household begins with a happy mama. For this reason, I would KEEP THE PLANET BOX FOR MYSELF. The three small people in my household can BORROW it. :)

Oh wait. Maybe I should give it to my sister as a baby gift. She IS the one who got me started reading your site…..

Tiffany - March 5, 2013 - 3:34 pm

I would love to win one of these boxes because being a picky eater myself and unfortunately having a son who is also a picky eater- the only way we can get him eating something with good nutritional value is by getting really creative or making the food fun. I try to do it with everything that he eats and sometimes it works but others not so much. He is also very particular about his food touching and this lunch box would be a life saver for him (and me!). I don’t want him to grow up with the picky non healthy habits that I did but I feel as though I’m fighting a losing battle. I’m desperate for better ways to teach him healthy habits and this lunch box would be fantastic. I would not normally be able to afford something like this because we are a military family and are about to have our third child. We make ends meet but have no room for extras. I would love to see my sons face when he gets a lunch box for school that no only keeps his food separate but has veggies and fruits that are cut up in fun shapes! It would be great to see him get excited about it. Normal lunch boxes just don’t work when I’ve tried to replicate your lunches.. And using zip lock bags just ruins the shapes and presentation. Sometimes presentation is the only thing that gets him to eat at all. Good luck to everyone who entered! I know every child would love one of these!

Amy Myers - March 5, 2013 - 5:01 pm

I love not needing plastic bags or boxes to keep food fresh and not smashed by lunchtime. <3 it!

Christi M - March 5, 2013 - 5:03 pm

I LOVE that planet boxes allow you to put all the food options out there for your child in an easy to open container! Just looks so wonderful all put together instead of different boxes or plastic baggies. I also really love that it is stainless steel rather than being plastic!

Angela Frick - March 5, 2013 - 5:24 pm

I love the materials they used to make it. The quality and durability is apparent. The sizes of the compartments are just perfect for adding a variety of child sized portions!

Christina - March 5, 2013 - 5:40 pm

I fell in love with this lunch box as soon as I saw your posts about it! My son is going to be starting Pre-K in the fall and I would love to be able to send him with this lunch box!

Adam P. - March 5, 2013 - 6:12 pm

I would love to win a Planet Box to pack my son’s lunches for preschool. The different dividers make it easy to give him a few different healthy choices without making him have to open several different containers.

Theresa - March 5, 2013 - 7:05 pm

The organizer in me is drooling at the sight of this, and I can’t believe how easy it would make portion sizing when packing food in the morning!

Christina Schaust - March 5, 2013 - 7:43 pm

Would love this for my own lunches!

Kim S. - March 5, 2013 - 7:47 pm

Thanks so much for the opportunity! I have wanted to get one of these oh so posh lunchboxes forever now! I have 3 kids, so guess they will all have to take turns using it, lol! Love it and it will let me accommodate their finicky palates and especially my 9 yr olds fabulous love for all different foods and keep them separated!

heather lewis - March 5, 2013 - 7:47 pm

Thank you so much for such a great giveaway! My daughters have been wanting a planet box since seeing another child with one. I love the fact you can make the lunch so healthy!!!

Lynley Byrd - March 5, 2013 - 7:47 pm

I love Planetbox because it seems like it would make it easier to pack my daughter a healthy lunch instead of trying to squeeze whatever I can into tupperware containers to then squeeze in her lunchbox. I sometimes have to resort to prepackaged things because lunch boxes I find are all too small to actually pack a good lunch into because containers just don’t fit in them(unless I get her adult ones, then where is the fun in that for a 6 year old)

Nicki - March 5, 2013 - 7:51 pm

I’m so inspired to make healthier lunches that are also fun to eat after following your IG planet box pics for the last few months. Thanks for sponsoring this giveaway!!

Elizabeth Fragale - March 5, 2013 - 7:54 pm

I love Planet Box because it is so cute and allows for so much creativity with my childrens’ lunches. We would love to have one!

Steph McCluskey - March 5, 2013 - 7:56 pm

I need the Planet Box just so I can start eating healthy! Thanks for the giveaway:)

Jenifer Corbett - March 5, 2013 - 8:11 pm

This would be amazing for my daughter. We have alot of issues with her eating especially if thing ever touch. this lunch box is amazing.

larry - March 5, 2013 - 8:22 pm

It’s just so freaking cute! Also, I want my kids to feel like they are part of the early 60s space program! :)

Kendra - March 5, 2013 - 8:49 pm

I dreamt about these several times since you posted about them long ago! I really would love one for my oldest daughter who starts kindergarten in the fall! Then I’ll need to buy more for the rest of the kids we have and end up having ;)

trisha - March 5, 2013 - 8:52 pm

My girls would go crazy for a planet box!

neto - March 5, 2013 - 8:54 pm

I like the planet lunch box because every other one we have bought doesn’t have compartments.. its usually plastic and they rip..
My daughters seen this one and love it!
I have 3 kids to winning one would be awesome!

Madison Ciliano - March 5, 2013 - 8:56 pm

I LOVE everything about the planet box lunch boxes! I like to give my kiddo an array of fresh fruits and foods to chose from, which usually entails 4-6 Tupperware containers (not great) :-/ We picnic, A LOT! So I think something like this is soooo necessary! I NEED one, and WILL eventually buy one… But there isn’t much excess money on a soldiers salary :-P

Wendy - March 5, 2013 - 9:01 pm

Would love to be able to make lunch for my little ones with a planet box. So fun, environment friendly and no more baggies :)

Christy - March 5, 2013 - 10:04 pm

I have tried to enter to win but it will not let me.:( Would love to have one, I have 5 kiddos in all and my girls would LOVE this box. Really cool that you are having this giveaway!

Elizabeth Mullins - March 6, 2013 - 10:11 pm

Oh would love to win this!! It would be great for outings with my twins!!

Megan Clark - March 1, 2013 - 11:08 am

First off I LOVE CHEEKY LIME CAMERA BAGS!!!!! They make the BEST stuff. Specifically the Livy bags. Would LOVE to win a Planet box! My wee boy is going off to preschool this fall and a planet box would last him all through primary and intermediate school!!!!! MUCH Love and blessings to OH SO POSH!!!

Jamie - March 5, 2013 - 8:51 am

I LOVE the box, it has so much space and looks like it would last years compared to the rest of today’s lunch boxes that are available!

I’m gonna make this place your HOME…

Welcome to my full of color home. So what’s these crazy thing everybody has been talking about that I love color??? Don’t we all love color?? When we look outside, the nature, the flowers, the birds, everything that we set our eyes on is full of rich, vibrant colors, full of colors that we would not certainly think to put together ourselves, full of bold patterns, and shapes of all kinds that somehow all work in such harmony and are so pleasing to our eyes. Take a walk in a park, take a walk in a forest and try to take notice of all the colors, all the textures, all the patterns… Have you ever thought to yourself that the blue of the sky doesn’t really match the brown and green of the trees? or the green leaf of a plant would maybe clash with that beautiful purple color the flower that the plant will bring to life?
Everything the green, the purple, the yellow, the pale pink, the brown, the vibrant blue and all the other hundreds of colors and hues, create the beautiful nature around us. Yet we are taught since we were little, that purple and red will clash, gray and blue will clash.. same goes for so many patterns out there. I think that’s why I just let Isadora dress any way her little soul wants to dress that day.. Today it was red polka dot shoes, military style jacket and a bright purple animal zoo tshirt that really did not go with the whole outfit:). But again.. I find myself going to judging colors and outfits based on what I have been thought… So I just let her be.. She was so proud of herself and the outfit she picked:)..

I was not always a person in love with colors. I was a very brown, earthy colors. My first encounter with pink was when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. You can imagine how uncomfortable I was with all that pink going on. I was never a girly girl.. and honestly even if I was, we did not have so much pink and purple things back in Romania when we grew up. We were happy to have anything, color was not something we worried about. So when all the pink came in my life, it took me a while to get myself to even wear anything pink, I think I started with a scarf, than a sweater and somehow the pink was so much of a better color than the brown I used to wear as the pink made me feel like I am alive. When your body is fighting to survive somehow that feeling that you are still alive, is such an amazing feeling. So I started to add in more and more color in my life. When I finally taught myself photography, all those colors started to reflect in my pictures, but it was not like I was trying to establish a style or to force myself to love colors. It came naturally until I realized, what a big impact colors have in my life. If I would have a bad day, I would just try to surround myself with some kind of color, and like magic, I would feel so much better, I would be so happy, I would feel like, Ok I can do this, I am alive, life is beautiful.

This past year, me and my little Isadora moved to a much smaller home than we had before and as painful as this move was, somehow I was so ready to have a place to call a home, not a house. I sure was the queen of the illusion of the perfect house, big, impressive, intimidating for others maybe… but it was just that.. and illusion. It was a very pretty illusion I might say, but it was dead inside. So when we moved to this new home, I wanted the home to reflect my soul’s journey, to reflect this time of my life, to reflect Isadora’s time, to reflect her childhood. I was so done with fancy things and I just wanted to decorate my house not with what was in style but with what felt good to my heart.

And sometimes what’s good for the heart and soul is just that.. to have a home not a house. To let Isadora be a kid, to let her books, her toys out around not having to hide them and show the world what a beautiful perfect house I have.I could have even hidden the toys in the pictures I took. I could have straightened the sofas, the blanket, the pillows, got some fresh flowers for my kitchen not the tulips that were loosing their petals, and I could do so much more, but I just got so tired of perfection. I have lived my whole life trying to impress others, to let others dictate what I like, gosh I was not even sure who I was anymore, I was even postponing taking these pictures of my house as I still had things that needed to be done. But I guess when I will do those things.. I might just have to do another blog post.. There problem solved:)..

And on a different note… please bear with me if there are some things I misspelled or if I didn’t express myself correctly.. English is my second language.. and that is still no excuse… but honestly I am trying to just practice this letting go of perfection.. even the writing of my blog. I had emails telling me that I don’t say things right and some spelling errors and to get somebody to help me with that. Trust me.. If I was to read this blog over and over and over again.. I could figure it out on myself what needs to be fixed.. but if I learned that I can’t second guess myself.. other wise I will never publish this blog as it will never be perfect enough. If you look back on my blog, I haven’t published much last year for fear I will say the wrong thing and for fear that I don’t know how to express myself.  I know many of you are English teachers and might not like how I say things.. I could hire somebody to help me with this, but honestly I just don’t have any time for another email, another person to run this by.. I just don’t.. I kind of  to choose between two wrong things.. Hope I stuck with the least wrong one…:)And  I also want to try and  see how this not perfect Lidia feels like for now:).. Far away from perfect… but so much closer to real.. and I tell you what… being REAL FEELS SOOOOO LIBERATING!!!

Hope this helps explain a bit my fascination with colors:)..

I’ll try to put some links bellow on where I got some of the things in my home…

Here is the entrance to my home. It’s almost like a loud scream … BEWARE this home is full of love and color:).  But to me it’s more of a statement to what Phillips Phillips sings about in his song called Home.

Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home


I got the little pillows from Urban Outfitters. I got them last year, not sure if they have them. I collect salt and pepper shakers so here is my little collection of them and also other fun colorful things.

Here is what to expect when you walk in my living room. I think that color warning was for real.. More color in my living room. Isadora’s toys are pretty much always in front of the fireplace, there is very little space to even step to sit on the sofa.. but somehow we are not that high maintenance and make it all work:)The canvas with the hearts I got the template from Design A Glow, the little wood ladders or not sure what to call them, I got them at Home Goods (it’s a place here in Texas kind of like TJ Max and Marshalls). The black storage with all the polka dot containers and the wicker baskets at the bottom, I bought from Ikea, the polka dot baskets were from target. Yeap there is a TV in there as the town home community here includes cable too. Very rarely do I turn that TV on. Unless it’s to watch a movie from a DVD that we have.
Here is a little close up picture on what I put on my little wooden shelves. I have one of the shelves that is my inspiration, my Lidia place, I placed in there the books that have changed my life and allowed me to be the person I am today, I have placed there a picture of my as a little girl, one of the very few pictures I have from when I was little, and I put this picture there as a reminder to love that little girl anytime when I tend to not be too nice to the older Lidia:). I know I am a bit weird.. or different. But the many books I read, I realized that I am not alone, that we all tend to talk so mean and ugly to our selves inside our own mind, I don’t think we would want to have ourselves as our own friends the way to talk to ourselves sometimes.

There is a sign I love to remind me that life is a journey and to just enjoy it as it’s short. I was raised baptist, with lots of guilt, shame and honestly I was just scared when I had cancer that God punished me for something I did wrong and I will go to hell. Well, when you face death in the eyes, you start to questions a lot of things that you raised up to believe. I first said there is no God, how can God not see that I just had enough. I almost died when I was pregnant, Isadora was born and she had so many medical issues.. now I had cancer??? So I embarked on a journey to find out the truth.. The truth that has always been in me but I thought others have the truth. The symbols of different religions and the many more I will add to this collection are there as sign that I might not be a religious person but I am a very spiritual person. Like I tell my mom, this is how I see things right now based on my soul’s journey, maybe 2 years from now I will believe different. As much as we want to make everybody believe the way we do, it’s just not possible, we all are and believe what we believe based on our journey. One thing I do know… I am so much closer to God now then I have ever been, I am not scared that I am a bad person and will go to hell, I am just in awe of how amazing God is and how perfect this thing called life is and how he orchestrates things so well, that looking back at our lives everything the good and the bad, the high and the low, the love and the hate.. everything makes sense..


Here is what you see next after you are done indulging your eyes in all the colors and patterns going on in my living room:).. My dining room and kitchen. In the back you see the little room, that is Isadora’s little office, her place to call Isadora, her place of inspiration. Gosh we are two pretty deep girls here:)… I asked the builder to cut this space under the stairs and even though it’s very small, it was the best idea ever. I have a picture lower down showing how it looks right under the stairs. It’s pretty much where Isadora puts her backpack, her shoes and just things that usually she would not have a place of her own to put them.

The table and the chairs from my dining room I got them at Pier One Imports. Wait for the 25% off sale and you get a great deal. The bright colorful  red chair is a sleep cover that I can just replace when I am tired of all those bold colors. For now I will stick with it. I still love it every time I set my eyes on it. The rug I got from West Elm. There are two bar stools that are suppose to be there but we use one of the stools upstairs for this tent Isadora has that is made out of some sheets and of course the bar stool:).

Oh how I keep my floors so clean and the dogs don’t bring mud in? you see the little crate right by the patio door? When the dogs go outside I open the crate door and they go straight into the crate and they get dried up a bit over there. I used to wipe their paws all the time and I never did a good job. This way they have a little furry pad inside the crate and it’s nice and comfy for them while they get a little dry.

Here is a little close up look from the above picture. The little storage table I got it also from Pier One. The wicker baskets underneath are from Pier One too. On the far back wall up the stairs, will do a collage of pictures and inspirational quotes. That is a work in progress that is not done yet. Other things that I decorate with are probably from target, pottery barn (the lemon holder) and the fun cow there in the corner is from William and Sonoma. That was Isadora’s idea. You can write in chalk the menu in there.

A little look into Isadora’s personal space. It was hard to get a picture of the place under the stairs. But you can see here, that this is pure just Isadora’s place; art, and shoes, and toys and bags …


And finishing this post with my favorite place.. my kitchen. The old house, I had this huge and fancy kitchen. Oh and the miles I would make when I had to go from the refrigerator to the sink, or from the stove to the sink. Never in my life will I ever have a big kitchen anymore:). Unless of course you have a lot of kids and you need that space. But for me and Isadora this little kitchen is WAYYYYY more than enough. Sometimes my dogs come in the kitchen and if the dishwasher is open there is really no room in there and I bump into them:).  That’s to give you an idea that it might look big in the pictures but it’s really pretty small. I wanted to get away from all the brown and dark colors that were very popular and I wanted lots of light and bright colors so I choose this distressed white for my cabinets. It’s hard to see but I keep Isadora’s art work behind the glass cabinets, my Starbucks mugs collection ( I have a weak spot for mugs:)) and just pretty dishes that I get from everywhere I see something that I like, some are Anthropologie, some are target, some are World Market. I don’t usually buy a whole set of dishes that match together.. I just buy one or two and wait as I know I will find another pretty dish at a later time:).. AM I alone in not having a full set of coordinated dishes?? 

I had to have a little corner of happiness here too. With the risk of getting this picture dirty, I wanted to have a picture of Isadora in the kitchen and with space being limited here was the best place that I found for it..

You can see my faithful Juicer up on the countertop. It’s big and bulky but I use it everyday so it stays there.

Little details of my countertop. What’s new.. crazy colors and patterns:).. I got the salt holder from Pottery Barn, the oil dispensers along with the jars from Target. Gotta love that target!! I choose the little sun tile as an accent tile to remind myself to always shine bright like the sun. To let my own light shine:)


And that my friends.. is what me and Isadora call our home!!! There are a lot more details I could have done now that I look at it.. But I did my best in the limited time I have available. I will try to take pictures of the upstairs and post them sometimes. Thank you so much for reading my blog, hope this will encourage some of you to step out of your comfort zone and add some color in your life:).. Love and peace your way… from our hearts to yours!!!


Natalie - February 6, 2013 - 1:38 pm

You’re home is amazing, Love the colours and the home sweet home feel you get when you look at it. :)

Stefanie - February 6, 2013 - 1:42 pm

It’s sad how ignorant people still are today. English is my second language as well and I’ve only lived in the US for 4 years, and no I wasn’t raised with english as a second language either. But you try to pick it up as fast as you possibly could, and you try to hide the accent and make sure you don’t make any mistakes. And when people feel the need to point out how your english isn’t proper, knowing that it indeed isn’t your mother language. It hurts. I also find it highly disrespectful to come up to me saying, “what country are you from, I think I just hear an accent in what you’ve said”. Why aren’t you something special, would you like a cookie with that? Last time I checked, everyone in this country technically isn’t from here, originally. Anyway, my point is, you’re not alone with this. Don’t let it get to you, even though I know how hurtful it can be when all you do is try to fit in and adjust, when all they do is tear you down and make you second guess yourself over and over. Be proud of who you are and that you mastered a second language, there aren’t many who can say that nowadays. And I’m sure, just like me, you know plenty of people who’s first language is english, but it sure doesn’t seem that way looking at all their grammar errors and what not.
Most importantly though, I am IN LOVE with your home! To me, it looks like it’s a stage home. It’s beautiful and everything seems to be exactly in its place! LOVE LOVE LOVE. Thanks for sharing <3

Maureen - February 6, 2013 - 2:08 pm

Your home is beautiful!!!! Thank you for sharing such intimate details. It is clear that your artistic vision is present in your every day life. You are an artist.

Deb M - February 6, 2013 - 2:34 pm

So glad you have found “your” home! What a beautiful home it is full of personality and love. Thank you for sharing.

Bethany - February 6, 2013 - 3:00 pm

Your home is awesome. I definitely found some inspiration for my boring old brown/taupe/creme home. :)

Thank you for sharing.

Heidy Deleon - February 6, 2013 - 3:01 pm

I love to see your pictures every day!! I love God and I’m glad that you love God too ;) many blessings for you and your beautiful daughter!!

Christie - February 6, 2013 - 3:12 pm

I love this blog entry, Lidia!! It is beautiful, just like you and Isadora. Your English is wonderful! If you hired someone else to ‘speak for you’, it just wouldn’t be the same….It would be ‘you’! I like having your personality show through in your words.
I love to see your home. It inspires me to not simply buy beautiful ‘things’…but to add personality, comfort, and love to my home.
Looking forward to more blog posts!

Christie - February 6, 2013 - 3:15 pm

P.S. I love the entry way (even your S&P collection is colorful!)
And I’m not sure it that ‘wreath’ on top of your shelf is supposed to look like a Crown of Thorns, but that’s what I see when I look at it. What a sign of love to see each time you walk in your door.

elma - February 6, 2013 - 4:03 pm

Wow I love it all!! What a warm and cozy home!! I can not wait to see more!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

Melanie Smids - February 6, 2013 - 4:10 pm

Your home is beautiful Lydia ! So is your heart ! May I say out of love that when you seek” truth” to remember there is only ONE truth and that is found in the Bible . Jesus said ,” I am the Way , the TRUTH and the LIFE , no one comes to the Father except through me “. There is ONE way ! Blessings !

Lidia TT - February 6, 2013 - 7:49 pm

from one romanian Lidia to another romanian Lidia :) your home is so cool! I love all the colours and if you ever feel like visiting Australia, please come and help me with a bit of inspiration for my home :) You know what would look good in your home? One of those hand made romanian rugs – you know which ones, the Maramures ones, exploding with colour!
nice work Lidia, cant wait to see the rest of the house xxx

Tracy - February 7, 2013 - 6:26 am

Wow, I love reading your blog….it just made me want to read on and on. Your home is so bright giving off a sence of warmth and happiness. Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to read more. All the best to you and your sweet daughter.

chrystal - February 8, 2013 - 9:41 am

i LOVE your home, all the colors and pictures everywhere, it makes me wanna make changes to my home! i LOVE your couch by the way, idk if you posted where you got it i may have over looked it? i been dieing for a couch like that!

Shaye Kennedy - February 8, 2013 - 2:12 pm

You are such an inspiration Lidia! I have to say that you are not alone in the mix matched dishes, I’m right there with you :) I like having things because I love them, not because they are a set or go together, but because they go together in my eyes!

Amanda - February 9, 2013 - 4:09 pm

Hi! Love following your posts. Focusing on your daughter and giving up on perfection is the type of parent I am too, and reading your blog always makes me smile. You are doing a great job!

P.S. Could you share where you found your large floor cushions? I haven’t found any that size that I like and those look perfect!

Madi W. - February 9, 2013 - 6:46 pm

Wow! You’re home is so beautiful! It looks like a home, and I have fallen in love with all the prints and colors and little things you have used to decorate it. For someone who lived so much of their life without color, you sure do have a good eye for it!

And I am sorry about people sending you emails about your English, I think it’s great! I would never be able to tell English is your second language!

And I am so glad you started blogging again… you have a real talent:)


Rachel Owens - February 20, 2013 - 8:20 pm

Beautiful space! Love the coziness and colors. Just curious if you’d ever care to comment on the “Case for Christ” book along with the budda statue. To me it is an odd combination and I’d love to hear more about why the two rather than just Christ….whom I can say with confidence is more than enough!

Karen - April 16, 2013 - 9:12 am

Hi there, I’m a native English speaker learning another language, and I know how hard it is to think and write in another language. It’s extremely difficult. You write very well! I love your photography and love reading your words. Many native English speakers (myself included) can’t express themselves as well as you do.

You house looks like HOME — lived in, loved in, laughed in. Alive. Don’t apologize. I have been in love with the English language all of my life and putting words together (and editing the words other people put together) has been vocation for 35 years. Don’t worry if you have a typo, use a wrong word or incorrect spelling or grammar — your message comes through loud and clear and that is the function of communication. Keep talking — there are many of us who are listening!

Many of them featuring the Tribeca Film Festival stories, tragic and lofty themes. However, for a product in California and one of his sneakers school children may be among the best.

I made her because I love her

All the beautiful sky pictures I have been posting these past few weeks and the beautiful comments from my fans got me to stop and think why am I so passionate about life? Why am I so passionate about helping others? Why am I so passionate about photography showing how beautiful life is through my pictures? Why is this passion so strong it’s hurts at times? As I sat down and wrote this post.. I remembered.. and I hope this will light a candle in your soul to remember your passion, to remember your soul’s journey and to honor it!!

I remember the sweet comment from one of my fans back in December when I posted a picture of my Christmas tree… “Sometimes I think God gave you a little extra Lidia, when he made you.” It made me smile… And I replied.. Indeed He did.. He gave me something extra special both ways… the very creative mind, the sensitive spirit to help others, the gift of just putting colors together and so many other wonderful gifts… but He also gave me so many tears, so many tragedies in my life, he gave me a little girl with so many medical conditions that I am scared at times to look in the future and I live my life one day at a time and enjoy her every single day like it was my last day, He gave me a place to call home always far away from my family, He gave me a lot of days in the hospital where I felt so alone and so forgotten by everybody, so desperate, so scared, He gave me a body that when I look in the mirror I cringe at the view that looks like there was a masacre field on my body, He gave me a marriage that didn’t work out and I had to learn to be my best supporter, my best admirer,  my only person to believe in myself, He gave me a childhood filled with so much internal pain and fear that even to this day those memories are so fresh in my mind and if I could paint, there would not be a single detail that I would miss from those times.. And it’s true God did give me something extra when He made me… but He gave each one of us something extra special…

Most days it’s so much easier to hide that extra special, it’s so much easier to just pretent we are alive, to just go with the flow and not stop and think about how to use that extra special? Why did we come here? What’s our soul’s journey on this earth?? I know for me it was so much easier back then.. Yes the pain inside was too much for words to describe, yet who cares about that, nobody sees my inside anyway.. so why worry?? Just wake up, go with the daily routine, try to ignore that deep crying pain that comes from your soul, go to sleep and tomorrow is another day.

I remember I was 33  when I really thought, well there is nothing I will ever do with my life. I will just stay home, raise Isadora, than get a small little job in a store and there life will be over and why bother with anything. I can’t make a difference in this world anyway.. I am way too small. But deep inside, my soul was burning with a passion, a passion to inspire others, a passion to do something that will get others from their pain, a passion that has been haunting me since I was 6 years old. I remember picking a book that had way too many words for me to read, but it also had a few pictures.. A few pictures with children in other countries that were poor. And in my mind as a child, even though we were so very poor ourselves… I said to myself, One day I want to go and help those children. I get tears in my eyes thinking about that moment. But that was my soul speaking to me, and we can ignore a lot of things in our lives, but the deep burning desire coming from within our soul is hard to ignore..

As much as I wanted to lie to myself I knew that my life couldn’t  just stop there. It was painful to get up in the morning and put a smile on my face and be present with Isadora, when 2 months ago, I just flew back to Romania to see my dad for the last time, this time not as the strong 58 year old business man he was. This time it was just his lifeless body that I saw. I remember sitting by his lifeless body, and watching about 6 strong people trying to lift my brother’s wheel chair to fit through a door and I was so confused… so confused.. How can this happen all at once?? I am fighting breast cancer, my brother almost died in a motorcycle accident and now at 31 he was in a wheel chair, my dad has passed away all of a sudden because of a strong virus… how can that be??? The pictures are so crystal clear how my brother was trying to reach out of his wheel chair to see my dad’s lifeless body.. I wasn’t sure how to align my feelings of pain in order and which pain to feel at that time…But there was no order, there was no time to prepare my soul for one pain at a time.. I had to embrace all that pain and hurt.. all at one time. Oh and how I thought I will not be able to survive another day… with a heart that felt that it was just too much to handle..

I did not have any desire for pictures, for art, and actually my pictures from that time when I look back are very lifeless. No color, no tone, no beauty, just deep sorrow. I had to fake it for while, to get myself to read something encouraging, to listen to songs that would give me some hope that things will be better, that will make me feel that I am alive. At first I was just numb, then I became angry, but after I let myself feel all those feelings, I became passionate about life. A passion that is hard to explain, a passion that almost hurts at times to just keep inside and not share with others. I became committed to not be a victim, but rather embrace my past, embrace my pain, embrace my journey and use it in ways to I help others come to life, help others see the beauty in life when everything around us crashes.

I will share more of where my journey took me next, on how I was so close to quitting so many days… yet each day, I would find one little piece of hope that I would hang on so so tight. I wish I had somebody to hold my hand during those times.. I think it would have made the journey a bit easier, a bit faster, but looking back from where I am today, I am glad I walked that journey all by myself. It gives me strength and courage to know that I can walk any other journey that my soul is here to embark on.

Not sure how many of you will read this message, but even if just one person will read this and if my words will make sense to them and encourage them, my heart will be full. Because it takes one person to make a change in this world, and then it becomes like a domino effect. I will share in more detail one day how I started on my photography journey.. but it was because the encouraging words of one stranger on Flicker that commented on my picture and said.. Beautiful work my friend. Can you picture how those words affected my life? Do you think I would be sitting here knowing all I know about photography, having so many followers that I so want to inspire, had it not been for those kind words from a stranger? Can you imagine the difference you can make in your world today? We really don’t know who reads our posts, who will ever come in contact with what we put out there on our facebook pages, on our websites, but if we don’t even worry about how many people we are impacting, or that our words have no power as we are just one simple person, if we just let our soul lead us in the direction of our journey… than MIRACLES will happen!!!

So for all you beautiful women out there, that are questioning so many things about your beautiful selves, about your beautiful beings, here is poem one of my fans shared with me and I am so honored to have the privilege to share it with you.

I Made Her Because I Love Her

I made her…She is different,

She is unique,

With love I formed her in her mother’s womb.

I fashioned her with great joy.

I remember, with great pleasure, the day I created her.

(Psalm 139:13-16)

I love her smile,

I love her ways,

I love to hear her laugh,

And the silly things she says and does.

She brings Me great pleasure.

This is how I made her.

(Psalm 139:17)

I made her pretty and not beautiful,

Because I knew her heart,

And knew she would be vain…

I wanted her to search out her heart,

And to learn that it would be

Me in her

That would make her beautiful…

And it would be Me in her

That would draw friends to her.

(1 Peter 3:3-5)

I made her in such a way,

That she would need Me.

I made her a little more lonesome

Than she would like to be…

Only because I need for her to lean and depend on Me…

I know her heart, I know if I had not

Made her like this,

She would go her own chosen way

And forget Me…her Creator.

(Psalm 62:5-8)

I have given her many good and happy things

Because I love her.

(Psalm 84:11, Romans 8:23)

Because I love her,

I have seen her broken heart…

And the tears she cried alone.

I have cried with her,

And had a broken heart, too.

(Psalm 56:8)

Many thanks to Rachel Vanoven for this beautiful capture!

Many times she has stumbled

And fallen alone

Only because she would not hold

My Hand,

So many lessons she’s learned

The hard way.

Because she would not listen

To My voice…

(Isaiah 62:2)

And now she is Mine again…

I made her, and then I bought her…

Because I love her.

(Romans 5:8)

I have to reshape her and remold her…

To renew her to what I had planned for her to be.

It has not been easy for her,

Or for Me.

(Jeremiah 29:11)

I want her to be conformed to

My image…

This is the high goal I have set for her,

Because I love her.

(2 Corinthians 2:14)

This brought tears to my eyes! What a testament of love, courage, determination, and faith you are, Lidia!! As I walk this road of breast cancer with my beloved mom, I am inspired by your journey and filled with hope. Thank you for sharing and God bless you and sweet little Isadora.

Nancy H - January 30, 2013 - 3:04 pm

I have never shared this with anyone before, but my favorite poem is Footprints in the Sand: http://www.footprints-inthe-sand.com/index.php?page=Poem/Poem.php (I’ve never searched this poem online and don’t know much about the website I just pasted). The reason I love this poem is it reminds me God is always by my side, and when I feel alone, I think about the words. It was given to me on a calendar booklet some 20 years ago when I was in high school and I just immediately took to it. This is from someone who almost has never attended church since six years old (long story) but learned about God at 5 years and it just stuck.

Christie - January 30, 2013 - 3:05 pm

Amazingly courageous and inspirational blog Lidia. Thank you! Looking forward to more of your insight and sharing.

Angela F. - January 30, 2013 - 3:13 pm

As I sit hear, wiping tears from my face, I thank you for sharing from your heart. You are beyond beautiful. Your honesty, your LOVE, YOU. Thank you for sharing. I have no words… and that doesn’t happen very often. *smile*

Counting it all joy,

Michelle - January 30, 2013 - 3:18 pm

You are an incredible woman! I love following you, and try to be at least a fraction of the woman you are. Hugs!

casey martinez - January 30, 2013 - 3:45 pm

What beautiful, raw and real pictures of you, your family and the journey that you have had in life. What beautiful words and verses to capture this post. As one who has also had a rather trying few years I am beginning to see more and more how the scars and the pain that we all experience in life really does seem to be what makes us most beautiful as it shapes our hearts and often determines our steps. We embrace life more fully and passionately because we realize in pain just how precious each minute is and every breath is priceless. Thank you for being real here and not being afraid to share your story a little bit with all of us. You are beautiful inside and out!

Kiki - January 30, 2013 - 3:48 pm

This is so beautiful….both the images and the words. And thank you for the encouragement. Even though my experiences are different, your words still spoke to me.

crenguta elena - January 30, 2013 - 3:55 pm

Lidia watching your post on face book last few weeks,my son asked me:Why you keep looking at this posts and pictures?
Because Lidia is a fighter and i admire her a lot..And who is she fighting with?he said…Her battle is her illness and she is a winner…But there is a prize for the fighter,they usually win something,said my litlle one,did she won any prize??
She won a magic power,I said,the magical power to tell others and teach other to fight…

Lidia be proud of your hard earned prize!!!

Kelly - January 30, 2013 - 4:00 pm

This is the most beautiful thing my eyes have ever read. I have never felt such raw hope, especially in The Lord. I just want to sit on this and saturate in these words. Wow.

Lisa - January 30, 2013 - 7:30 pm

It is all so beautiful. The words. The photos. The journey. Your willingness to share openly and honestly is refreshing I find that reading about your journery and seeing through your photos of where you are today is inspiring on many levels for me. My mother who had breast cancer when I was six. My good friend who died of breast cancer at 46. My daughter who was born three months early and sufferend not only the consiquences of a premature birth but also multiple hemangiomas. Many on her face and head. At one time we thought she had Phaces. I am really not certain how I stumbled upon your facebook page. I think a friend thought of me when she saw a post about your daughter. I felt connected as only a mother with a child who is dealing or has delt with medical issues can understand. Mostly I am writing this to thank you. Thank you for sharing yourself, your daughter and your journey. I find that it makes me a better mother to my daughter. It makes me more thankful for the small things in life. I also struggle with the memory of my mother having survived cancer (she will turn 80 this spring) and feel compasion for your daughter. We take that memory of almost loosing our mother with us as we grow. What we choose to do with that memory is what is important. Blessings to you. LIsa

Jaime - January 30, 2013 - 8:33 pm

You are such an incredible woman and I strive to have the strength and beauty and zest for life that you do, one day. I love your work and I think god has blessed you in so many ways. Thank you for sharing.

September - January 30, 2013 - 8:40 pm

Your words are such an inspiration to everyone!!! You are truly gifted, being able to express in writing your feelings. I love your vulnerability to share this with all those out there. You are beautiful inside & out!!!! I watched my mom draw her last breath to cancer less than a year ago. I struggled trying to stay strong and see the beauty in things. I just have to remember that God is always with me. I admire your faith, strength, and fight. Again, thanks for encouraging words!!!

Caitlin - January 30, 2013 - 8:42 pm

Lidia, you are such an amazing person. You have been very inspiring in the past & have done it once again! Thank you for sharing this! It truly shows what a strong & amazing person you are.

Roxi - January 30, 2013 - 8:57 pm

Lidia, may God bless you for the courage to post this and encourage so many other women that they are all beautiful and that our biggest pain and trials can be our biggest victories!

Sharna W. - January 30, 2013 - 9:09 pm

I have read what you wrote & it is so touching. If I could go back and hold your hand for a minute, I would. I am glad someone touched your heart and awoke the photographer in you too. Sometimes small encouragements can mean big things. I think you are beautiful and your soul is beautiful. I can only hope one day I am one 10th the mother you are, the person you are and the spirit you are. My husband often asks why such things can make me cry, movies, people stories, and I tell him its because I like to feel all things deeply. If I did not cry so much I may not love so much and with such great joy.

Jo - January 30, 2013 - 9:13 pm

Oh wow!!! This is very inspiring to me! Thank you!

Christy - January 30, 2013 - 9:25 pm

Lidia, thank you so much for sharing your story with everyone!! You’re a strong, amazing woman, beautiful inside and out! I’m currently in the midst of my breast cancer journey, most of which, I did while pregnant with my 4th son. He endured all of my surgeries and 6 rounds of chemo with me! Today he is a happy, healthy 4-month-old!! I feel so blessed that he came into this world with no complications from my treatment! The words you posted spoke to me and I have long felt God wanted to bring me closer to him thru this journey, which as you know, is not easy! May God bless you and keep you… :)

Madison - January 30, 2013 - 9:30 pm

This is so beautiful. I understand so much of what you say and it touches my soul. You are absolutely inspiring. Thank you so much for your strength, many will benefit and grow from it. God bless you.

It is so sad all the things you have been put through, but god knew he was choosing a strong family that would could inspire thousands of people everyday. Bless you and Isadora!

Morgan - January 30, 2013 - 10:02 pm

Beautiful. You are so special, strong and inspiring Lidia. I so look forward to reading your posts every day. You are a wonderful mother. Thank you for sharing. You are so brave.

ann - January 30, 2013 - 10:07 pm

This is beautiful!!! I too am a survivor but didn’t have the courage to go through reconstruction. After two years I still cringe when looking in the mirror. You’re one brave mama.

Lori Lockhart - January 30, 2013 - 10:26 pm

Lidia, you are the most amazing woman I have ever known. The way you love beyond all pain. And your determination is unmatched. I love seeing your daily life with Isadora and I believe that God has you both in his hands. God bless you both always.

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL POST!! Your words have truly touched my heart!

crystal - January 30, 2013 - 10:35 pm

Thank you for sharing this. Thank you for being the amazing, beautiful and brave woman you are. Your words have inspired me and encouraged me in more ways than you’ll ever know. I forwarded this post to my mother in law who is a two time breast cancer survivor and just turned 50. I know that you and your words will be an amazing blessing to her too. Thank you!

Samantha - January 30, 2013 - 10:45 pm

Beautiful Lidia, absolutely beautiful! You are such an inspiration not just in photography but in my spiritual journey. Your beautiful story was what my soul needed at this point in my life. Thank you for having the courage to share. You and Isadora will always have a special place in my prayers.

Annie - January 30, 2013 - 11:08 pm

Thank you so much for shareing your life with us. I read everything that you post of facebook. you give me hope that what I have always tried to tell me kid’s and grandkid’s is true. This world can be a better place one person at a time. It don’t matter if your growen or just a child. a smile from a child can light up a room full of older people, a streached out hand too homeless person just wanting a meal. It does not matter how you give of your self it all starts with just one person.
I really feel that you make this world so beautiful just by being in it. Thank you for everything you do for others and for the wonderful little darling, Isadora that you share with all of us. I really belive God has big plan’s for her in this world. may God Bless and keep you.

Jackie Jones - January 31, 2013 - 12:58 am

I just want to say that your words truly have a impact on me. You inspire me! I have not had an easy road in my life and I feel what you have gone through. My husband left my two boys and I back in 2011 and we had to pack up and leave. We moved back in with my family and I was so lost, hurt and angry. I started full time college Jan. 2012 towards my nursing degree. I was very excited to get on the right track. Than Nov 15, 2012 at the age of 29 I was diagnosed with Triple Positive Breast Cancer. I had my mastectomy on Dec 28, 2012 and I had my first round of Chemo 1/29/13. You inspire me to become someone who has so much passion for life. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. It is not easy to do. I am sharing my journey with my family and friends and I have cried as I have written out my blog posts. Your post touched me and I did cry as I was reading this. I am just starting on my journey, the journey you survived! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for sharing and opening up. You truly are an inspiration. Here is my blog post that was one of the hardest I wrote and showing everyone how ugly cancer is http://www.craftyjones.blogspot.com/2013/01/its-not-temporary.html you inspire me so much. Thank you.


Judy - January 31, 2013 - 6:35 am

Thank you for such a beautiful and moving post. I emailed to my biological daughter who was diagnosed with malignant brain tumor last year and who also is a beautiful artist like you.

Kelly - January 31, 2013 - 6:35 am

I don’t even know where to begin, you have been through so much yet you are so positive and uplifting to others. Thank you for sharing your journey with us, you inspire, you make me realize how very lucky I am and I should cherish it every minute of every day. Isadora is a very special child with a extra special mommy.

Laila - January 31, 2013 - 6:54 am

What an amazing journey Lydia. You are strong, very brave and so beautiful! Inside and out. Thank you for sharing your story with me, it has really touched me.

Many blessings! x

Danielle - January 31, 2013 - 6:59 am

I admire you more than words can say. Your blog has touched me and tears fall as I hope that one day I can be as strong as you are to write a post like this. Your portraits and words have made me realise that I never look in the mirror as my reflection is similar to yours and there is so much pain in my soul to bare it somedays. Gets better every day, but I’m sure it will never go away. I look forward to reading more of your story.

Denise - January 31, 2013 - 7:45 am

What a REAL woman of God! God has really blessed you as His servant.

Lovella Paradiso - January 31, 2013 - 8:16 am

I don’t know you, but I admire you, your strength, your passion & love far beyond what any words can express. You are an inspiration.

Ken Gehring - January 31, 2013 - 8:19 am

Beautiful! Thank you for sharing your story and I wish you much sucess and recovery!

Sian Hewett - January 31, 2013 - 8:19 am

You have been my inspiration in my work for a long time and now you are my inspiration for my life too. My company are skydiving in aid of a breast cancer charity in the UK – you have touched so many people <3

Whitney McQuarry - January 31, 2013 - 8:20 am

Just want to tell you, I think you are absolutely beautiful. Inside and out.I think it takes an insane amount of courage to share the things you have. You give courage to so many women and its no wonder Isadora is as amazing as she is. The courage, strength and determination she has shown (as much as you have shared with your fans and friends) is a reflection of the mother you are to her. With a mother like you, how can she fail. You both are destined for great things.

Stacy Smith - January 31, 2013 - 8:21 am

You have inspired me for years. God bless you.

You are an inspiration to so many, and make so many of our roads look EASY. You will be added to my daily prayer list, that Isadora will fully heal from all of her health complication. Maybe that is the reason for your intense passion and gift, so that you may also see the power of the prayer of others in your precious Isadora. I understand everything you say about that passion you have, it’s so intense it hurts, and so few people understand what that is like…

Lidia (sorry I think that’s how it’s spelled), have you seen this video ‘The Light That Shines’ that was shot with Sue Bryce? It’s very touching. https://vimeo.com/57648966

Jyn - January 31, 2013 - 8:27 am

You are amazing!

Maribel - January 31, 2013 - 8:28 am

God Bless you, you are such an inspiration!

Regina - January 31, 2013 - 8:32 am

You are an inspritation. A warrior. And such a sweet story. Your daughter is so blessed to call you mother. And your work is wonderful and motivating.

Ashley Price - January 31, 2013 - 8:33 am

Thank you so much for posting this and sharing it with all of us. You are truly an inspiration and I am so amazed by how strong, brave and selfless you are. If only the world had more kind-hearted souls like you!

Ronda Harter - January 31, 2013 - 8:34 am

Beautiful. Although my journey looks entirely different, your story and that poem spoke to me this morning. Thank you for sharing!

Sarah - January 31, 2013 - 8:34 am

What a blessing. So much I can relate to as a single mom of 4 who has had cancer, a failed marriage, a difficult childhood and college years. So much pain. I’ve spent so many years in crisis. I’m not out of the woods yet, and your story is what I needed because I have not begun to have passion for life again yet. 3 yrs ago in a dark place, I discovered photography and it drew me out of depression and resulted in a business that now can support me and my children. Wow, a new life and career starting at 30? Who would have thought. Love the similarities in our stories but even more covetous of coming out on the other side as you have. Hit another crisis this past year and taking a long time to work thru depression and forgiveness and anger. God is our only light and He has allowed all of this to make me dependent on Him. “Though He slay me, yet will I hope in Him.” Job 13:15. Thank you for sharing the light on your dark path.

Very beautiful… Thank you for sharing.

Megan Bryant - January 31, 2013 - 8:37 am

Ever since I discovered your photography page about 2 years ago, I have been a huge fan and follower. I later learned from some posts you made that you were a cancer survivor and daily battled with your daughter’s ailments. You are such a strong woman. I admire you, your work, and your desire to inspire others. The photos here in this post truly speak to me…I see a woman who has been through hell and back, and still is not letting it get her down. Your daughter has the greatest mentor and example set before her–her Mom. I mean, let’s face it, not all Moms are like you. You make me want to be a better person…to let go of the “flaws” on my body and be proud of the marks that childbearing has placed all over me. To not be ashamed of never wearing a bikini again. To become even more excited about the next precious life that I can bring into the world. God made me in his image, so why would I want to be any other way? Thank you so much for your genuine, heartfelt post. Thank you!

Debbie Wibowo - January 31, 2013 - 8:37 am

Lidia, I’ve been silently following your work since I learned about your two years ago. You continue to mesmerize me with the way you see life, kindness, passion, positive attitude, as well as with the love and connection between you and Isadora. I live far from my parents, who are struggling with their health. Every time I need a “pick me up” moment, I look to your pictures and encouraging words, and I know that I am not alone. Thank you for being a candle in this world. I would like to copy the poem if it’s OK with you.

Karen Wood - January 31, 2013 - 8:38 am

Beautiful, Lidia. Just beautiful. You are salt and light, sweet lady.

Jena Kessel - January 31, 2013 - 8:39 am

Lidia, you are such an inspiration to me and my work. You have touched my life. God bless you and isadora.

Debbie Martin - January 31, 2013 - 8:45 am

Beautiful in every way!!! God really does bless us in the most amazing ways. I, too, find every day a blessing and try to pass on my passion for life. Many of us faced with possible mortality know God and put our passion for life out there. You are truly inspirational with the way you share your passion for yourself, your photography and mostly for your beautiful Isadora. I love your posts and read them all. Thank you so much for sharing your story, your passions and your little girl with us. God will continue to bless you both. Hugs and <3

Marni Finder - January 31, 2013 - 8:45 am

Thank you!! Thank you for kicking my butt in gear and not taking my life granted for another second. You are an amazing person from what I can tell from your post and your journey. You are touching sooooo many with your art and with your words…. Thnk you from all the rest of us. Sometimes I think the only thing I can offer this world is perhaps a good picture here and there (I am still trying to achieve and grow in my art). But…. Shame on me… I and all of us all have so much to offer this life!! I will continue to follow your work!! P.s. how did you do such amazing clouds in the first shot of this blog entry? Photoshop? Or just an amazingly fantastic sky? :0)

Ashley - January 31, 2013 - 8:51 am

What a beautiful story! Thank you for sharing. I am not a photographer but love photography. You are so insperational and genuine. You are a very strong woman. **hugs**

Tracy Lynn - January 31, 2013 - 8:53 am

You are an amazing woman of God Lidia. Reading your words makes me realize that I CAN.. do today, and not tomorrow.
Thank you
Bless You

Christopher - January 31, 2013 - 8:55 am

I commend you on your strength and commitment; it is truly a testament to those who are suffering and burdend with their own hardships. However, this is just my personal opinion and I am in no way passing judgment, even though your scars are part of your testimony, perhaps (in a public forum, anyway) you may wish to reconsider the frontal nudity. You are a beautiful woman who has a message of strength and faith, but I dont think that it is cause for exception to Gods desire for mosdesty in our lives. While I saw the pictures for what they were and, I believe, what you intended them to be, as a man, a married man at that, I have to say I felt some initial discomfort. A lot of other men may, unfortunately, take a more perverse pleasure in viewing them and completely disregard their intended purpose, and I would be willing to wager that is something you do not want. I think there may be better and more appropriate and less public forums where you can display these for your intended audience, other than on FB where your message and intentions might be misinterpreted and perverted by our morally diseased society.
Again, I do not wish to pass judgment, only to express my concerns and offer advice. Make of it what you will.
A brother in Christ,

Teresa - January 31, 2013 - 8:56 am

Thank-You so very much for sharing your story. It is inspiring and very touching. I read on your Blog or Facebook post regulary to see how you and Isadora are doing. You are a very strong and wonderful woman. We can all learn from you. THANKS

Almut - January 31, 2013 - 8:57 am

So so good!!!

BriAnna Denbow - January 31, 2013 - 8:57 am

Oh Lidia, I’m not even sure how to put into words how beautiful and inspiring this post and you are!! Thank you for sharing your heart. You are an amazing person and I’m so glad that FB brought you into my life, even if from a distance.

Valerie Rinker - January 31, 2013 - 8:59 am

Consider you heart full then, because you have really touched me with your story. What a beautiful and strong woman you are! I pray that God continues to bless you abundantly. Thank you for sharing your story and your gift with the world!

Marni Finder - January 31, 2013 - 8:59 am

Jenn - January 31, 2013 - 8:59 am

I “read” your pictures and your words , I quote Kara ” This is the most beautiful thing my eyes have ever read” ( as Kara so eloquently put into words what I felt when looking at your amazing pictures)and it sent a whirlwind of emotions through me..

I worked in the Operating Room doing surgeries like yours and with each woman, I wished there was a way or gift I could give them, in return for touching MY life, in some of the worst moments in theirs. What you have to look at,and what you call a “masacre field” on your body, isn’t that at all… I see a road map of where you’ve been and how you got to the beauty of what life is REALLY about. You are amazing, and inspiring, you are a sunrise and a sunset, both a beginning and an end to one part of the journey. And I thank you for taking me along

Heather Braun - January 31, 2013 - 8:59 am

Reading this brought tears to my eyes. This poem spoke to me this morning. You are beautiful and inspiring!

Heather - January 31, 2013 - 9:04 am

You are such a beautiful inspiration! Thank you for sharing your story.

Brittany Burtch - January 31, 2013 - 9:04 am

Your courage and your words are such an inspiration. I pray you and your daughter, rest easy in the arms of the ultimate healer. Thank you so much for being so open and for sharing your journey with all of us. God Bless!

Lisa - January 31, 2013 - 9:04 am

Your courage is both amazing and inspiring <3

Kristin Morris - January 31, 2013 - 9:06 am

You are the definition of beauty, strength, talent, and truth. I don’t understand why someone would have a problem with the photos. I find them uplifting. My heart goes out to her. I love the last picture, it shows such genuine joy. You my friend are a talented photographer, and I hope to have half the talent you have one day. I am sharing this on my FB page, because I think women as a whole, lose sight of who they are everyday. I am guilty of this myself. It is life. Life happens, and sometimes we need a reminder of why were are here. So, with that being said, THANK YOU.

Anna Lopez - January 31, 2013 - 9:06 am


Sonya Wolf - January 31, 2013 - 9:09 am

I believe you have another calling…a call to lead and inspire others to overcome and shine. Thank you for your words and for sharing such an intimate time in your life. This sharing brings about so much hope and life in others. God Bless You and Yours. May you continue to shine.

Amanda B. - January 31, 2013 - 9:16 am

Lidia, you are beautiful, you are an amazing mother, and such an inspiration to us all. I am so glad to have found you on the internet (years ago) and to have the opportunity to follow along with you in the stories you tell and “life” in general. You’ve got a huge supporter in NC!

Misty Beams - January 31, 2013 - 9:22 am

Thank you for letting us look thru the window. I think that is the bravest thing a person can do — to let the world really look in. May he continue to lift you and your daughter up forming a hedge of protection and peace.

Amanda - January 31, 2013 - 9:22 am

Lidia, you are incredible! Your journey may have been difficult, but it has helped to fashion you into HIS image! Thank you for sharing your passion, your heart, and your precious Isadora!

Rachel - January 31, 2013 - 9:37 am

Your spirit just resonates from these images. I see nothing but your courage, strength, wisdom, and TRUE beauty. Thank you for sharing your vulnerability…it brought tears to my eyes and this world – with all the darkness you know so well – is truly a brighter place with people like you in it.

Kristi White - January 31, 2013 - 9:45 am

Wow, I’m speechless – what a beautiful message you deliver! <3 <3 Your soul is amazing and beautiful as are you! I wish I could have a fraction of the courage and passion that you have – you are so inspiring! Don't ever stop doing what you do – it really does make a difference in those that follow you! And I must say .. I have thought this from the first time I started following you … Your daughter is simply the most adorable little girl I have ever seen! XOXO

Andrea - January 31, 2013 - 9:50 am

You are such an inspiration to us all, and I’m so glad you share your life with us!

Sara - January 31, 2013 - 2:00 pm

I was brought to tears by this. You are such an amazing person and mother. I am only 22 and just started my photography career and you inspire me so much. We fret so much over the little things like a cable bill or the dog chewing up a pillow and its not worth it. There’s so much beauty out there in this world and some amazing people who get through struggles and overcome hurdles that I could never imagine. You are an inspiration! You have truly touched me and make me want to do great things!!!!

Linda - January 31, 2013 - 3:18 pm

I’m not a photographer yet. I want to be as a hobby and maybe as a side business. I take photos with my little digital and edit and play with photoshop. one day i’ll own a real camera. I’ve followed various artists for years. I have seen your work here and there but today is the first I’ve read your blog. The post I read where you show your home full of toys and such in all its imperfections…that was perfect to me. I saw so much love in those pictures than i could in a newborn shot. I thought to myself, when i have babies i want my home to look like that. I want it filled with love and life. Then i read this post and it hit me hard because i’m on a journey right now. i’ve hit rock bottom. i’m still picking myself up. i’m faking smiles and trying to take one day at a time. i’m learning to listen to God more and trust He knows what’s best for me. The poem was so beautiful…it could be about any woman fighting a tough battle. all week God has lead me to read something or talk to someone and its inspiring me to keep going. Because so many days it feels like it would be better to just quit. But i’m determined to be a survivor. thank you for sharing.

Julienne Manalastas - February 11, 2013 - 3:51 pm

Thank you. God just spoke to me through your poem. Thank you so much.

Torsten - February 16, 2013 - 8:20 am

Hi, I am from Germany and I found your blog by accident, so to speak. Just a few minutes ago, I was reading your post about your breast cancer, and I was looking at some of your pictures and your creative photography.

Your story touches my heart, it made me cry. But on the other hand I am happy to see what a strong woman you are who has so much to share. Thank you for your wonderful poems and pictures and for showing us your beautiful, colorful home.

This all is so inspiring, so warm and touching, thank you, thank you, thank you! I love all your colors!

Grant Bentley - March 25, 2013 - 6:34 pm


Thanks for a well-crafted online experience that all men who love women should witness. I would be honored to have you listen to my feminine side through my song writing and recording. I also created a music video of one of my songs (called “Dancin’ Feet”) about Marta Beckett of Amargosa Opera House fame. She has also inspired me to create without reservation.

Bobi - April 10, 2013 - 7:32 pm

Reading this was not only absolutely what I needed today but absolutely God ordained for me to read. Just wanted to let you know how encouraging your deeply moving post was. My thoughts are with you.

Carmen - August 7, 2013 - 1:23 pm

Lidia, you are an amazing and inspirational woman! I keep coming back to read this part of your blog from time to time in hopes of lifting my spirit and not lose hope after being diagnosed with BC. You have such a beautiful soul. Thank you for sharing.

Stacie Lehoux - August 10, 2013 - 12:37 am

I have been following you for quite sometime now and just want you to know how much you touch my life on a daily basis. This blog I just read was so inspiring to me at this moment in my life and the poem you shared at the end is something I really needed to hear. I was born with osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease) and recently had surgery on my leg after a year of not being able to walk normal and was in pain everyday from a horrible break I had. At times I wonder why God made me this way and why its so hard for me to find love. But when I see your story and how triumphant and strong you are, it gives me a reason to keep on going and lift my head high. I too have a passion for photography and am so in love with your work, it amazes me. I just want to thank you for being you. God bless you.

Carmen - September 2, 2013 - 12:36 pm

Ever since my diagnosis I find myself coming back to read your blog. Having all your dignity stripped from this horrible disease I find peace and comfort in reading your blog. Although I lay here in pain, I know there is hope in the end.

Diane Zarlingo - September 19, 2013 - 10:50 am

Again I visit and direct women to this post. I have never been without words. I simply don’t have enough magnificent words to describe how I feel about your willingness and ability to positively effective others. Prayers, blessings, and hugs to you and your lil love. xoxo

Top Domains - October 24, 2015 - 8:32 am

I’ve been visiting your site for a while now and I always find a jewel in your new posts. Thanks for sharing. We run a related weblog and recently had been quoted saying… Search engines love blogs, and are constantly pretty fast to be able to index them. Obtaining yours out there for the world to see is not going to be hard. There is certainly this cool tool that you can use every time you update your blog that is known as pinging. Pinging your blog right after every entry that you make will permit everyone know that your site has a new accessibility and updated.
