Things We Love. We love locally owned businesses. We love the ideas that grew into reality by persistence and dedication. We love the individuals who have given their blood, sweat and tears to live their dream. We love seeing the names of locally owned businesses–committed to making our communities strong–on the front of t-ball shirts, in yearbooks and as donors to local nonprofits. But, do you know what we love even more? We love that our local businesses offer the best services and products paired with the greatest customer service available. Turn to page 43 to see why it is so easy to love the Things We Love.
Loving Our Self. February is a month we often focus on showing others we love them, but Mindy Miller reminds us love truly begins with loving ourselves. On page 52, she states self-love is not selfish, self-love can be difficult, and she shares how to fall in love with ourselves. Afterall, how can we accept love from others if we can’t accept it from our self?
Here is to taking the first step, and all the steps after, during the month of love and remembering the greatest gift is to love and be loved.
