epl_juliaDid you love “Eat Pray Love?” Do you believe that travel can be transformative? Then join us Nov. 22 for our TravelingMom Monday Twitter party. We’ll be talking about the chick flick sensation, “Eat Pray Love on Director’s Cut Blu-ray & DVD,” and giving away lots of great prizes, including copies of the DVD, travel guidebooks to Italy and a Spa gift certificate.

In the movie, which will be released on Nov. 23, Liz Gilbert (played by the always wonderful Julia Roberts) gets a divorce then heads off on an around-the-world odyssey to find herself. She eats her way through Italy, seeks God in an ashram in India, and ultimately heads to Bali where she falls in love.

Can’t spend a year seeing the world? Doesn’t matter. All travel can be transformative, even the weekend camping trip when the kids got an up close look at Mother Nature. Join us to celebrate the transformative power of travel, food and love during the Nov. 22 Twitter party.

The Grand Prize winner will be awarded at the end of the party to someone on this RSVP list WHO ALSO HAS PARTICIPATED IN THE PARTY before the last drawing announcement. If you cannot make the party, you are not eligible to win the grand prize.

All winners will be chosen using random.org. If you win a Eat Pray Love swag basket, you are still eligible to win the Grand Prize (see rules above), however you are not allowed to win two Eat Pray Love swag baskets. You will have 48 hours to respond and claim your prize. If we do not hear from the winner within 48 hours, a new winner will be randomly drawn. Winners please DM your address to @travelingmoms and allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.
