HEY FRIENDS, Crissie here!

Welcome to my first ever blog post (cue spirit fingers!!)

I am thrilled to have you here, getting the inside scoop of my life & business as we grow together. Without further ado... let's dive in!

If there is one thing you should know about me it's that I LOVE going out and trying new things. Whether that be a new restaurant, food, adventure or store to shop, I'm here for it all! But you know what really gets me pumped?! Getting to try some of these for FREE!! (I mean who doesn’t love free stuff?) Anyone who knows me knows my FAVORITE thing to do for my birthday is going around gathering all the free birthday gifts from all the local companies that offer it! 

So in celebration of turning the big 25 this week, I am gifting you all a glance into my fav 56 birthday freebies! Oh and some pretty fabulous birthday portraits! 😉
