Emily and I both value the importance of community - whether it is your local community, global community, online community, or your community of friends. All have value and all are important for you to be a part of, to surround yourself with good, uplifting people can really change the course of your life. Yes, it's that important. One of the many reasons we started this blog was to be able to connect with YOU and inform you about local opportunities for you to CONNECT with our local community - through fun family outings, volunteer opportunities, or chances to come and support new local businesses.

We are also passionate about supporting women and orphan care through ministries and companies we have become familiar with. So along the way we will also introduce you to global opportunities for you to get involved in whether its sponsoring a child or buying gifts with purpose…. It's important for us all to be active participants in life - in our community - and use time wisely by investing in our family, friends and community, locally and abroad. We hope to inspire you to become involved!
