How do you and/or your business get into the spirit of giving?
Each year I host a *12 Days of Giveaways* event on my facebook page to say thank you to the many friends and fans who have supported my business throughout the year. It’s a great interactive way to include people in the season of giving more than just material items. I encourage my fans to engage in “pay it forward” type activities as well as leaving comments about special people in their lives. Sometimes we forget to tell the people we love and care about how much they mean to us.
What is your favorite part about this time of year?
I love spending time with my children, and seeing the magic of the season reflected in their eyes.
What is your local family “must attend” holiday event?
Most definitely the Falmouth Christmas Parade, strolling through the Falmouth Village Green, and making Gingerbread houses at the Shoreway Acres Inn.
Would you share with us a family tradition?
Every Christmas we bundle up the littles in their jammies and winter coats to drive around looking at Christmas light displays.
If you could have one wish this holiday season, what would it be?
My wish this season is for our communities to embrace one another and hold onto the ideal that we are all worthy of love and acceptance no matter our nationality, creed, orientation, or economic background. I am a firm believer that we get back what we put out into the universe. My goal is to help spread a little bit of light and hope that light is contagious and will encourage others to do the same.
What are your words festive words of advice for our families during this special time?
Less is more. Less money spent, less hustle and bustle. Less overextending ourselves. More family time, more making memories, more reflection on what is in our hearts instead of what is under the tree. xx
What is your favorite holiday dessert?
Correct answer:: ALL OF THEM.
