KISSES to the wonderful women from The Fabulous Find Thrift Shop in Kittery, Maine, who purchased a bureau for my 7-year-old daughter, Emelie. She fell in love with it and asked for it to be put on hold after I told her that I couldn’t purchase furniture without her father’s approval. When her dad went back the next day to check it out several women had paid for it to be her Secret Santa, as some had witnessed her love of the hand painted bureau and the painstaking care she took to make a “HOLD” sign and tape it with LOTS of tape to the item to be sure her sign didn’t come off. It was a heartwarming moment for us to learn the item had been purchased for our daughter and she is going to be over the moon on Christmas morning! Please support this wonderful shop that gives a portion of its profits to local charities.

The Saturday before Veteran’s Day, my husband and I stopped at Robert’s Maine Grill to buy lobster lollipops. I walked in at 10:30 a.m., knowing they weren’t officially open but hoping I could buy the lollipops. The woman who greeted me hadn’t even taken her coat off, but was more than happy to wait on me. When I mentioned my daughter stationed in Afghanistan wanted to give them out, she asked if she was in the military. When I told her that my daughter was in the Air Force, she told me to take as many as I wanted and thanked me for her service. I would like to thank Robert’s for their support of our military.
