The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The Gift Giving Season

What holiday gift from the past was most meaningful to you and your family and where will you be shopping?

 John Albers- GA Senator

A few years ago my wife Kari and I decided to give our sons legacy gifts now that they are adults. Last year, we compiled all our family recipes and put them in a nice leather-bound binder. Each recipe has a story and is credited to a family member in our history. We hope they will add to it over time and continue to pass down the legacy. I try to shop locally as much as possible. I love supporting our local businesses and community!

The most exciting gift to give is TIME to me. I am blessed to have such a wonderful extended family and beyond. I also have so many wonderful friendships that we celebrate and take the time to reflect on the past year. We cry, laugh and share our lives with each other in a very meaningful way. We also promise to make plans to gather often in the upcoming year. Giving the gift of time cannot be taken for granted. I lost both my mother and my brother a few years back, and I often reflect back on those precious memories of time spent together that no one can take and the holidays are perfect to show how much it means to spend time together.

I printed one photo from each month from our family gatherings over the year and printed a calendar for my husband's office.  Also, my daughter got engaged on the beach of Lake Michigan, so I'm making a hardcover photo book for her and her fiancé. The High Museum shop always has interesting gifts too. Linen and Flax has such great clothing and I saw their faux leather joggers - perfect for my sister who is a gym teacher but loves a sassy outfit. Happy holidays!
