Tara Barnard's Winsday! What is YOUR win today?
Danielle French's Winsday! What is YOUR win today?
"One of my very best friends, Selia, had her baby girl 6 weeks early last month! This not only landed little Ms. Ruby in the NICU, but also in Ann Arbor, over an hour away from home.
Although it has been a scary and stressful few weeks she is doing great and has graduated from the NICU with hopes of coming home this week. Selia was born to be a mother and when we found out the news of her pregnancy, it was beyond exciting. My heart is over flowing with love for this little girl already and I can't wait for them to come home and finally start settling in."

Sarah Knupfer's Winsday! What is your win today?
"My father is a huge fan of politics. Every election day, he gets takeout from the same place (only for this specific day) and watches the numbers come in. He started this tradition when he was young and it continues today. However, yesterday had an added perk - it was his birthday too!!
We gathered at our family home and watched the election unveil. Election day is very special to him and I always enjoy hearing what he has to say. No matter how the election turned out or who we personally voted for, we spent the evening engaged in nonjudgmental political discussion and I feel fortunate to experience that with him. My win this week is celebrating my dad and that we still love each other after a night of politics."

Robert Dowding's Winsday! What is your win day?
"My win this week is that we've started our Pie Day preparations! That's right, if you are a current or past client of ours, expect a postcard in the mail this week!
This is our 3rd Annual Pie Day and we're so glad you all like it as much as we do! This year, we've had clients asking when Pie Day postcards are coming out, and that is fantastic. It's such a great opportunity to catch up with all of you and we truly look forward to it.
Are you a new client who isn't familiar with Pie Day yet? Click here to see a 1 minute video explaining what it is.
See you on November 22nd!"
