You’ve all probably got various parties and celebrations you’re attending this Christmas season.  Things are no different for me.  The weeks leading up to Christmas are a flurry of activities with shopping, baking, decorating, and socializing.  In fact, the partying continues even after Christmas at my house.  Today my family will be joining me and Husby for some holiday cheer and cozy chatter in front of the fireplace.

And a new year is right around the corner.  The flip of a calendar page can inspire better intentions and habits as well as reflection on the past year, what it has meant and how it has affected us.  One thing I like to reflect on is all of the good things bestowed upon me throughout the previous year, giving silent thanks for events and people who have encouraged me, taught me, inspired me, and just plain loved me.

Did I say “silent thanks?”  Well, for the most part, yes.  But this year I decided, as owner and CEO of Auntie B’s Wax, to express my gratitude to my roadie, tax man, and support staff with a special dinner.

Lucky for my funds all of those positions are held by one person, Husby.  The company treated for a nice dinner for just the two of us.  We enjoyed delicious food and refreshing libations while we chatted about our day, our lives together, and the future of Auntie B’s Wax.  I also expressed great thanks to my one and only employee, who works for nothing, for helping me grow a business.

Employee appreciation dinner will become a new tradition at Auntie B’s Wax.  Whether I have one employee who works for nothing or ten employees with salaries the company will treat for a year-end dinner.  I think that’s a capital idea and well-deserved to those he who helps make it all possible.

I’d also like to express appreciation to all of you who have supported my business with your purchases and encouragement.  Please help yourself to 15% off your entire purchase (excluding shipping) in my Etsy shop through January 13, 2012.  Just enter the coupon code THANKS when making your purchase.  You deserve it, because you are all so dang awesome!
