Friends! Pals! Best Buds! What would we do without them?! Seriously.
Just think how different your life would be if you didn’t have that person who just gets you. That person who has known you forever. The person with whom you share all the inside jokes, and who always knows just what you are thinking. We rely on our friends for so much! Friends are there when you need a shoulder to cry on, when you need an honest opinion, when you need a ride to the airport, and most importantly when you need someone to celebrate with!
Who is your best pal? Your partner in crime? Who do you call first when you have good news? Who do you know will be there for you no matter what? Friends are at the center of our lives, but how often do you actually thank your amigos? Well, it’s probably time you should! You can download our free printable best pal card right here, and make it a point to let your them know just how much they mean to you!
To all of the waitresses, waiters, servers, baristas, and bartenders of the world: THANK YOU!
I never worked in the food service industry, but I know many who have. I also know that those who do are often under-appreciated. We all know its true that a great server/bartender/barista makes a meal 100% more enjoyable. It’s time to start recognizing them!
Last week we had the chance to eat at some amazing restaurants in New York City. Wow, there is so much food to eat in New York. So much good food. We hit up some of our favorite spots, and we tried some new ones as well. I can honestly say that we had excellent service everywhere. And, we took note! We left some ‘thank yous’ with our bill (and tip!) as a token of our appreciation. Because, isn’t it the best feeling to get noticed doing an excellent job? You bet it is.
Do you have a local hangout? Maybe a favorite barista who makes your coffee with a smile every morning? Maybe a waitress at the diner around the corner who knows you by name? Let them know that they are doing a fantastic job, and maybe slip them something a little extra next time.

The growing season is in FULL swing in our part of the world. Flowers are blooming, tomatoes are ripening, and the corn is taller than me. We love this time of year because of the lushness and wonderful things that summer brings. We also appreciate all those people who put in the time and effort to help tend gardens and mow lawns and just keep everything alive and well.
This month we are thanking all of those people in our lives who have a green thumb! Maybe it’s that person who mows your lawn, or who waters your plants while you are gone from home. Maybe it’s the person who you buy home grown veggies from at your local farmers market, or your neighbor who shares their bumper crop of zucchini with you. †Maybe it’s your local florist, or the groundskeeping crew at your favorite park.†I’m sure you have a person like this in your life, and we hope you take a little time out to let them know how much you appreciate them and the work that they do to make this time of year so wonderful!

We all know that teachers make the world go round. That’s the truth!
Next week, May 5th through the 9th, is Teacher Appreciation Week. †There’s no better time than now to let all the teachers in your life know just how much they are appreciated!
We definitely have a soft spot in our hearts for teachers. Karen and I are both former teachers, and we know first hand that it is a job that requires a big heart and an enormous amount of time and effort. As a way of paying it forward, Karen is leading the teacher appreciation week effort at her daughter’s school this year. Kids and parents are encouraged to write a little note of thanks to their teachers, and they will be showered with treats all week long!
We all have our favorite teachers picked out to surprise with a card and a treat, and we would love if you would think about doing the same! Maybe you have a child (or two, or three!) with some dedicated teachers. †Or maybe you have a friend who spends countless hours outside of school preparing lessons and activities for her classroom. Or, you might want to go back and thank a teacher from your past and finally let them know just how much they impacted you.

Happy Tax Day!
It’s April 15th, and hopefully your taxes are all done, paid, and in the mail. If you are anything like me, you have a trusted someone who helps sort everything out, fills out all the forms, and explains all of the hard to understand things that come with making sure you give the government their share.
In recent years that has all become MUCH more complicated for us as small business owners. Luckily we have Wade. Wade is our accountant. He’s the guy with the brain that knows everything that we don’t, and helps us tackle our taxes. We appreciate him more that he probably knows, so we wanted to make sure to tell him! We dropped off this card to him today along with a little surprise, that hopefully he can enjoy now that his busy time of year is over.
We are hoping that you take a little minute this month to let your tax expert know how much you appreciate them! Maybe you use an accountant. Maybe your dad, or your older brother, or your spouse, takes on the task of helping you complete your taxes. Or, MAYBE you do your taxes yourself. If that’s the case, way to go! Great job. You should just go ahead and treat yourself today.
