Hello lovelies, and greetings from New York (Brooklyn, technically). This week I was inspired by a good friend of mine who has a habit she calls “Pay it forward Friday” in which she finds some way, however big or small, to pay it forward to someone. It started in her waitressing days, and she’d anonymously pick up the tab for one table. As she is no longer a server, her generosity manifests itself in other ways now; paying for the car behind her at a drive thru, donating money to a charity on payday, helping someone in need. When she was telling me about her philanthropy, I couldn’t help but become inspired to start my own Pay It Forward Friday. I don’t know that I can commit to every Friday, but I’m going to try. Really hard. I am going to make the promise that it will be *at least* one Friday each month. From now until this time next year.
Twelve months of giving.
I can handle that.
And in the honor of my resolve, I’m super excited to announce the winner of my Favorite Things giveaway.
Congratulations, love! And, at the risk of sounding like a certain jolly elf, Merry Christmas to all.
