Happy holidays! Merry Christmas from the whole crew at the Outside Inn. I wish I could say I have a favorite comment from the Grand Giveaway, but we’d be here for days. I want to take a moment and thank all the amazing local businesses and organizations who played along, I’m impressed by our community’s generosity that the crate was worth over $3000! We live in an special place and the blog gives me an opportunity to showcase, share and appreciate our town every week.
The comments…I must admit I’m still in awe. Wow. Just wow. These comments are the best present a girl could get. Thanks, everyone. Here are a few of the comments, thank you to everyone who took the time to share their thoughts, if you have time, go back and read some of the 800 comments.
