I know, I know — it's been a while. And, wow, a lot has happened in the meantime. On a personal level, I'm a new mom and it's been one of the most amazing, beautiful, and — yes — tiring experiences of my life. My husband and I couldn't have asked for a more precious gift than our daughter, Zoe, and our time with her has been an extraordinary adventure, so far. We can't wait for everything that's still to come.
How many times, over the course of your life, have you heard the period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day referred to as “The Season of Giving?” We’ve all participated in this metaphorical season in some capacity or another – usually by giving gifts to friends and loved ones. And as anyone knows, the best part about this ritual is seeing someone light up when a gift that you’ve given them really strikes a chord. It’s actually better than getting gifts (okay…most of the time!). Well, recently, I came across something that inspired me to take the idea of giving to another level and I decided that this would be the perfect time to do so, essentially making “The Season of Giving” earn its name. I want to introduce you to Capes Coaching’s 29-Day Giving Challenge.
