Hello friends!

So, some pretty ah-mazing  things have happened around here in the last month or so…  Dare I say, holiday magic.

On Bliss Street became a Wayfair Homemaker!  One of the coolest and humbling things to EVER happen to me!  I’m a total Wayfair junkie and proud of it!

With that said, Wayfair is asking bloggers to spread some holiday cheer by Blogging it Forward.  To do that, we are sharing some of the ways that we give back this holiday season.

Here On Bliss Street, here are just a few things that we like to do to spread some cheer to our local folks, not just around the holidays, but all year round!

  • Donating gently used items on a practically weekly basis to our local organizations.
  • Donating reusable items to Habitat for Humanity during a reno project.
  • Monetary donations to our local animal shelters- every little bit helps.  This is the Peanut’s favorite :)
  • Being available to our neighbors.  That’s what community is all about!
  • Giving DIY advice to friends of friends of friends when they ask for it!  This one is just plain fun!

Now for the good stuff.  This holiday season, here are few things that the kiddos and I are doing to spread holiday cheer!  Pick one, two, or even three to copy!  The more love we give, the more we get in return!  Generosity spreads, let’s help it along!

  1. Pay for the car behind you in the drive through lane.  What a surprise for them!
  2. Tape a few dollar bills on the shelves at one of the many Dollar stores for unsuspecting shoppers.  Today, it’s your treat!
  3. Bake or purchase cookies for neighbors, the nurses of a retirement home, or the staff of a local non-profit to say thank you.
  4. Letting the kids pick a toy to give to  Toys for Tots.
  5. Drawing pictures and writing letters to send to Operation Shoebox

These are just a few of the things that we like to do because it makes us feel AWESOME, and hopefully makes someone else’s day AWESOME as well!

How do you all spread love around the holidays?  Or better yet, all year round!


2 down.  So many more to go!
