January Giveaway Day

As the cold of winter moves along, I find myself curling in a quilt with a mug of hot chocolate and my journal a bit more often. This is the season when I’m most conscious of words like soul and poems like ”January” by John Updike:

The days are short,
The sun a spark
Hung thin between
The dark and dark.

I think it’s because when the sun goes down for the night (and afternoon?!), I want to bed down myself. This month’s giveaway from two small business gals feels like a nice addition to this seasonal warmth I think we’re looking for within.

20€ gift certificate credit to Euroscents at Scentsy

Suzanne is an expat mom in Germany, and she had the same questions so many of us have had as expats: what kind of work can I do to help my family financially (and myself emotionally) in this new world? And where the heck can I find a sweet smelling candle to make my home smell like magic? That’s when she became a Scentsy independent consultant.
