The “Because I Appreciate You” Giveaway!


That. That right there is what I love the most about Christmas – seeing the smiles on the faces of people that I give gifts too.

Scott will tell you that I’m not a very obsessive person about most things – I don’t care if there’s a little dust around the house (stop laughing Mom), and I don’t care of I have jeans that have holes in them. I do care, however, about finding the absolute perfect present for everyone on my list. I’m not sure why? Maybe it’s because I feel like I’m proving to the person that I know them really well? Or maybe it’s because I want to show them how much I appreciate them by purchasing the perfect gift?

Whatever the reason, it drives Scott a little batty. He will suggest tons of very reasonable ideas for gifts for friends and family, and I shoot them down, knowing that if I wait, I’ll come upon the perfect gift. It’s all in an effort to get that face – the face my daughter is wearing above from last Christmas – on someone’s face.

I need all my clients to know how very, VERY much I appreciate you guys! You have been amazingly fantastic and have helped my business grow so quickly and so well that both Scott and I are humbled and grateful. Unfortunately picking the perfect gift for all of you would probably drive me insane (and would cause Scott to throw me off a cliff) but we wanted you all to know how much we appreciate you so we’re doing the first annual

  2. This year I love Christmas more than ever! Last year Daemyn was barely three months old, so there was not much to do with him, we opened the presents with him and gave him the wrapping paper, I think he held it for two seconds.

It’s not about the presents, it’s about spending time with my son making memories with him that will last a lifetime.
