A little goes a long way

Well lovlies, we made it to Friday yet again! These short weeks just sneak by so quickly!! What fun things do you have planned for the weekend? The other day, we came across some sweet "common courtesies" on Emily Post and it got us thinking. It's easy to get so busy throughout the week and at times we forget how true this is:



Emily Post reminds us that the best way to show your appreciation for someone is by doing something unexpected, thoughtful and kind. These "common courtesies" are an easy place to start:

  • Say “Have a good morning” to the server who’s been pouring cups of coffee since 5 a.m.
  • Help your son or daughter pick flowers {from your garden, of course} to give to his or her teacher.
  • Want to thank your grandma for the sweater she sent you? Put that digital camera to good use and show her how really great it looks on you.
  • And last but not least, SMILE! Make it a habit to show your appreciation and make others feel good by flashing those pearly whites. It’s a simple gesture, but it can have the greatest impact of all.

It's amazing how far these common courtesies go! With that etiquette inspiration, we send you off into the weekend! May it be full of fun & relaxation with those you love the most! :)
