My First Family Paint and Sip
Well we did it.  The Laceyville Business Association asked, if I wanted to host their first paint and sip?  Being a member and intrigued by the idea, I threw my hat into the ring.  Families love this kind of event and it’s positive exposure for the town.

Besides it being a fun experience for me.  I also noticed, the bonding experience the child and parent were having.  In a world that has the need to move at the speed of light, time slowed for just a couple of hours. It was just parent and child slowing the holiday crunch.  I observed how, like having dinner at a cozy restaurant,  all that matter was the conversation between family.
