Spreading the Love

This year for Valentine’s Day my friends, Ansley and Lauren, and myself decided to host a party. We invited several beautiful young ladies and requested they bring items to donate to make Valentine’s gift bags for the women at the local battered women’s shelter, the Haven

We were able to fill 12 gift bags with a variety of lotions, bath gels, perfumes, candies, nail polishes and a variety of other girly products for each of the women at the Haven. Lauren had the privilege of dropping the bags off for the ladies at the Haven Friday morning. She informed us that the women LOVED the gifts! We all couldn’t be happier to spread the love and generosity each of those women deserves.
