Shout Out and Thanks to Serah's Soaps

As a business owner, I am plagued with both the good and bad of owning a business. For the most part, it is good. Today was good. In fact, it was exceptional and reminded me why I love this business.

I received several gift packages this week from some treasured customers. One of those packages included a cupcake soap from Lisa, the owner, included a note of thanks along with her gift. She wrote, "You are one of my biggest suppliers and your products help make my business a success."

The packaging of the cupcake soap was great! The container, right down to the label, was professional in every way. The hand-tied ribbon was an added touch that let you know this soap was packaged with care. Thank you, Lisa, for the gift. BTW... we had a special helper visiting us on Tuesday of this week (the niece of one of my workers). We presented her with this soap at the end of the day. She is a third grader and thought it was the "coolest" soap ever.

Olivia's Advent Calendar

Every year I put up an Advent Calendar for the grandkids to countdown to Christmas. This year Olivia (who is 2 1/2) is extremely excited about opening the little windows to retrieve a chocolate treat. She gets the concept that candy is hiding behind the window (go figure), but doesn't understand the whole "count-down" thing; nor, does she care. To her, the Advent Calendar is all about standing on her "special ladder" and poking little fingers into any window she can reach.

Here Miss O stretches her little arm to get that special chocolate square. I believe she's opening the December 24 window (which is way ahead of the countdown). She is clueless and could care less. She just knows that it's a part of the Christmas tradition when visiting NeeNee and Poppy's house.

Aaahhh.... I got it!

Family traditions are what the holiday season special. I hope that each of you take time to establish a holiday tradition with your family. Whether it's baking cookies, making handmade gifts with the kids, opening an Advent Calendar, or decorating your tree with ornaments collected through the years. Whatever tradition you establish, it's about spending time with family and making memories that will last.

At our house, it's nutcrackers. I've been collecting them for years. We spend an afternoon unboxing them, repairing the damaged ones, and then carefully arranging them throughout the house. It's a family affair and we cherish the time together.
