    it makes a difference…

    Soon, these packages will be under your trees. I wanted you to know today that your purchase impacts more than just my family. They impact the family of Amber, who helped me cut bands in November to prep for a sale. They impact the single mom at the post office. They impact members of my church’s food pantry. It’s more than just me. I live in a small town – the kind of small town where there’s just 1800 people. We have a small country post office with two employees. The other day the lady at the post office told me that one of the town’s business owners who shipped…

    march goals

    Well, I’m here again to talk about my goals. I didn’t know if I’d share each month but I do think it helps me knowing that someone else out there knows my goals and just might check in to see how I’m doing (ahem, Leslie & Dave). February Goals: 1. finalize my new web design – for the most part it’s ready to go to my web guy to get started.
