Be Thankful. Brand Yourself’s #ThankfulBrand Promotion.

A couple of years ago my daughter, Addison and I made a Thankful Tree. I wanted to encourage my family to be grateful for what we already had and not to concentrate on wanting so much over the Holidays. I feel like sometimes that concept gets lost over the hustle and bustle of the shopping […]
