Thanks & Gratitude

November 19, 2013

Hi everyone! My name is Maria. Recently, I joined the marketing team at Cheryl’s and Co to help out for the busy Holiday season and am very excited! I will be a guest blogger throughout the Holiday season.


It is mid-November what do you hear: the ringing of sleigh bells or the gobbling of a turkey? Many would say the ringing of sleigh bells as the Holiday season is top of mind for a lot of people. While the Holiday season is almost near, Thanksgiving is even closer with about one week left!

Over the past several years, I have noticed Thanksgiving Day seems to have become the prep day for the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season and is often overlooked. On this day people strategically plan their Black Friday shopping by browsing the ads, creating shopping lists, and napping for energy to combat the long lines and enormous crowds. Sadly, the real meaning of Thanksgiving is overlooked with the preoccupation of shopping and getting the “best” deal.

I love Thanksgiving as it is one of my favorite holidays of the year! It is spent watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with all the floats, marching bands, and big finale with Santa’s arrival. Football games play on the T.V. all day until 4 PM when everyone gathers together around the table not only to eat an abundance of hearty food but also to give thanks and gratitude. While eating, naps, and football watching all make for a relaxing day, the best part is being able to share what I am thankful for and spend time with family.

This Thanksgiving Day think about what you are thankful for and express your gratitude. Take a step back from the hustle and bustle of the encroaching Holiday season and enjoy a day complete with delicious hearty food, long naps, laughter, love, football, and relaxation. Put down those newspaper ads, turn off the computers, and stop planning ahead. Live in the moment and listen closely and maybe you will hear the Turkey gobbling away…

What are you thankful for? Share your thoughts!


National Friendship Day!

July 28, 2011

A post from our Marketing leader, Denise….

Did you know Sunday, August 7th is National Friendship Day? Neither did I!
But what a great time to reflect on treasured friendships and memories.
I once read somewhere that friends are our chosen family.  That is so true….I have a handful of close friends that have been through thick and thin with me! Do you have a favorite “friend” memory?  Here’s one of mine….

For my 40th Birthday (we won’t talk about how long ago that was), my friends surprised me with a night out….not just dinner and wine but they all participated in a belly dancing lesson. It was so much fun! One of those things on my bucket list that I had never done!

Please take a few minutes to share one of your favorite “friend” stories  – and be sure to send it along to your friend! I’m sure they’ll be thrilled to know they’re appreciated.



And to thank you for being our friend, we are offering a FREE 6-count Cookie Sampler. You only have to pay shipping and handling charges of $6.95!  What a sweet deal!
