Merry Christmas from the whole crew at the Outside Inn. I wish I could say I have a favorite comment from the Outside Inn annual 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 truly speechless that the crate was worth over $2300! We live in an amazing community and the blog gives me an opportunity to showcase, share and appreciate our town every day.
The comments… I’m not sure how to sum up my appreciation for the outpour of love and support.
“I think the Outside Inn’s commitment to our community is wonderful. It brings people together in such a positive way. Those of us who are lucky enough to live here already realize what a beautiful place it is, but you share it in a way that others can appreciate it too, ” wrote Andrea. “What I love most is that even though I’ve lived in this area all my life, I learn about new places, businesses, people, and events from your blog,” said Sadie Barquilla. “Your blog is a priceless gift to this community, ” Shanan Manuel, “truly amazing resource for our community,” Nicole Wright and always “keeping people connected,” said Laura. “I love the way you share your passion for this beautiful area we live!
