Hello dear Hatchlings,
We hope you are all enjoying the spirit of the season. There is something so beautifully and uniquely human about being able to celebrate this special time of year. We are reminded, as parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, that this season really is to transcend into a childlike state. It's as if the cookies in the oven, the wreaths on the street lights, the star on the tree have all been sprinkled with Christmas pixie dust and have become so much more than the sum of their parts.
As parents, it's our job (and joy) to create an ambiance and a spirit that is memorable, intimate and unique. We are so impressed with parents' ability to push aside their own agendas, pain or discomfort to make the holidays magical for their children. It's the time of year we remember to teach our children about some of the most important gifts in life- the gift of giving, the gift of tradition, and most importantly, the gift of believing.
We know there are so many families out there who are trying to do just that- and we want to help! With that said, we have teamed up once again with our pals at Freshly Picked to do A Christmas Story Giveaway. It is our hope to spread a little extra cheer to a family who could use it. Along with some recognition, we are giving away a dress, headband and a pair of Freshly Picked Moccasins (winners choice).
Give a family and a special little girl some holiday-pixie-magic-dust by nominating them (or yourself) to win this giveaway. Share a story of inspiration. What makes this family (or family member) so special and why do they deserve to win? We know there are some remarkable stories out there and cannot wait to share them with our readers.
