Welcome to Monday, dear reader. Cyber Monday, to be precise. This day is notorious for online deals and savings. Today, we will offer savings exclusively on our website. The Bibbed Wonder is working his technical magic as we speak, creating online specials. The Black Friday Special of 20% off sitewide will continue through Friday. This is in addition to $25 off orders of $150 using promo code 25off150 and $30 off orders of $200 using code 30off200. We had a busy weekend in the soap studio. Boxing soaps, restocking, stamping boxes to ship, and fulfilling orders dominated our weekend. It’s good to be busy, and we are grateful for the outpouring of support for our small, farm-based endeavor. We could not do what we do without our soap family. There are indeed many things to be grateful for this season.
The past week or so has been a whirlwind of activity. I hosted Thanksgiving and got to enjoy time with my favorite people. Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday. It is a close second to Halloween. I love cooking Thanksgiving dinner, decorating, and bringing out the good china for a day of feasting and celebration. We barely had time to recover from our turkey coma, and it was time to focus on Black Friday sales. We spent most of Friday packing orders. We have been working at this for seven years, but working with my family, hustling, and trying to beat the clock on order fulfillment doesn’t get old. The three of us spent the day together laughing, joking, and, yes, dancing. Did you happen to see the video of one bib overall wearing wondering buns busting a move? A dancing Bibbed Wonder is an elusive creature indeed. However, I now have proof he does exist.
From now until the week of Christmas, we will spend most of our time in the soap studio. We love what we do, who we do it with, and where we get to work. I do indeed feel very blessed this season. I have a family who loves me, a farm that holds so much meaning for many reasons, wonderful friends who have become family, animals that are an extension of our family, and a life filled with good people. We’re safe and warm, our stomachs are full, and we want for nothing. The blessings do indeed overflow.
Thank you for being one of those blessings. I count you and say thank you every day. On this cold, blustery Cyber Monday, stay safe, be smart, snuggle up with a good cup of coffee/tea/hot cocoa, and enjoy the savings. Oh, don’t forget to wash your hands.
