Imagine That! We’re Thankful for Thanksgiving!

Imagine That: holiday leaf ornament on a tree

It’s been a very tough year for many of us, but Thanksgiving inspires us to focus on going forward with hope. We are so thankful for the many instances of the community helping each other both through organizations and individuals. We are so thankful to you who are both our friends and customers for your support. Although we may be celebrating Thanksgiving differently this year, the acknowledgment of all we have to be thankful for remains the same. Thank you.

Serendipity Road

Retail display at Serendipity Road

How important is the feeling in your home? I think we learned quite quickly this year as we moved our offices, schools, social hours, etc into our homes it is a huge part of our life. The atmosphere in our homes largely effects how we feel, how we engage with others, our productivity all starts in the home. We build our richest, deepest relationships within the walls of our home. With that in mind we opened a new portion of our store called Domesticity which means = home and family life The space is filled with things that make a house a home. Stop into Serendipity Road at 215 E Main St. and see our new space today.

Joyful Tantrum

Retail display of puzzles at Joyful Tantrum

One of my favorite quotes is,  “In family life love is spelled T-I-M-E” At our weekly family meeting I asked my children about how they thought they could spend more time together. One of my children said, “Mom what was really great is when we had a puzzle out on the table.  Everyday we organically came together and worked on it.”  Children are amazing and contribute so much to our lives and have wonderful insights.  What small thing can you do in your home to bring your family together?  If you don’t know ask your children.
