Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful this year for many things but as it relates to business I am thankful to have business. In this time of economic struggles for many I am very grateful to have a thriving business. Uncertainty has always been intimidating to me but since starting my own business uncertainty has new meaning to me & our economy is uncertain at best right now! I am also thankful for anyone who reads this blog. I appreciate your business & support.

Check back often in December- it is going to he a very busy & exciting month for Blissful Moments & I promise to post updates often.

Happy Thanksgiving- enjoy & be safe!

Holiday Season

Well, I honestly believe the "Holiday Season" is beginning earlier every year due to the retail craze created. As I was shopping with my Mom this past weekend there were lots of Christmas decorations throughout the stores & even holiday music playing in some places. I, as much as anyone, love all the sights & smells of the holidays but it should not be the main focus of the holiday season.

I do want to keep this blog very business focused but do feel like there is a time to step back & reevaluate things- both business & personal.

Before I get caught up in the hustle & bustle of Christmas & all it entails I am stepping back to remember what has made this season memorable for so many people. I have started a journal & am going to list, each day, 1 good deed I have done that day. I am going to vow to do this every day between now & Christmas & hope to be very proud of all the "little" things I have done that will hopefully make a big difference to someone. Both personally & as a business owner I have many talents & gifts that I feel I can offer & am going to make it a priority to keep that my focus this season. I challenge you to also figure out for yourself how to keep the next 2 months in perspective for you & your family & to celebrate the true reason for this season.

Hathcock Autumn Ambience

This past Sunday I had an event at the lovely new home of Lee & Bonnie Hathcock- we called it "Autumn Ambience". They were generous enough to open up their home to friends, neighbors & talented craftsmen that had helped make their dream a reality. With hommeade gingerbread, hot apple cider & glorious autumn temperatures guests could not have enjoyed themselves more. We had an amazing turn out & the house looked immaculate. I very much enjoyed getting to know both Lee & Bonnie and look forward to working with them on more events in the future. I don't have pictures yet but as soon as I can get my hands on some (I forgot my camera that day!) I will post them for you to see!

As always- this event could not have been successful without the help of many talented vendors. Thank you to the following for making this day memorable for The Hathcock's and their guests!
