26 Acts of Kindness: Acts #1, #2, and #3

Merry Christmas Everyone! 

This is the time of year for joy, happiness, love, acceptance, and giving. If you haven't already heard of the 26 Acts of Kindness that is in honor of the 26 victims of the shooting in Connecticut then listen up. Take time this holiday season to do 26 random acts of kindness for others. It doesn't have to be something big, maybe an extra dollar or two on your next tip, giving a special card for a neighbor who doesn't get out much, or leaving a quarter in a gumball machine to make a child's day. 

A few coworkers and I have decided we want to do these 26 acts. There is nothing better in this world than a little extra kindness and compassion and I hope that you will pay it forward and help make this world a better place.

Eric and I decided to give our neighbors a Christmas card along with $1.50 for a load of laundry. 

Please consider passing on the love this Christmas season with your random acts of kindness. 
I will keep posting our RAK's and hopefully you will share yours too!

Weekend Recap

Hello everyone! 
So this weekend Eric's mom, dad, sister, and their cousin Jess came down to Cincinnati and hung out with us on Saturday. We did some Christmas shopping at the Cincinnati Outlets (which is now one of my new favorite place btw), had a delicious lunch at the Macaroni Grill, and went to the PNC Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo.  

It was a perfect way to celebrate the holiday season. The weather was really nice and it was extremely crowded, but the lights were just stunning and the atmosphere was buzzing. I highly recommend visiting the zoo this season. 

Like I said, absolutely beautiful. 
Hope your weekend was great, only a few more left until CHRISTMAS!!!
