Feet1

We all know that relationships are a major part of the human experience. We are pack animals. We function better together then seperate.

Whether you are in a long distance relationship, a marriage or a new friendship with someone "extra special" we want to know..."What does it take to be a good partner?" Is it patience? A good sense of humor? Perhaps the ability to be flexible when making decisions? All 3? Or, what do you say? We would love to hear from you. Leave us a comment on our Facebook page.

    Why Orange is the New Black is My New Favorite Show

    Oitnb

    It draws you in and you feel compelled to watch it show after show. We gobbled it up like a binge eater goes through a bag of Oreo's - one after the other, on and on until it was all over. That is exactly how it went down the day we found Orange is the New Black on Netflix. Created by Jenji Kohan, the show is based on a true story that reveals itself in dramatic and comedic excellence taking its influence from the book "Orange Is the New Black" by Piper Kerman. Lucky for us we had the whole day free so Mike and I binge fed ourselves on OITNB all day long. Taking only the occasional bathroom breaks and getting refills on sustaining food to help get us through. We love how the show weaves the back story of each character, so you come to understand how each one ended up in prison. You become attached to them and the actors do such a wonderful job you begin to feel the emotion of their plight. Whether self induced or not, they still ended up in prison, and you, as the viewer "feel it" too. All of the actors go deep into their characters. You forget for example that Laura Prepon, who plays Alex, was the character Donna Pinciotti on That 70's Show and that Kate Mulgrew, who plays "Red" on #OITNB, not only was in Ryan's Hope as Mary Ryan (which i watched in my late teens/early twenties) but she also was on Star Trek Voyager as Captain Kathryn Janeway! And who can forget, Pablo Schreiber. OMG -all I can say is, if I wasn't already married....whoa! Great actor and a great pornstache! So, if you haven't already taken the plunge into Netflix original series - "Orange is the New Black" you simply must give it a whirl. Just make sure you have enough food and water to get you through the binge watch that is about to ensue. Can not wait for season 2!

    3 Reasons Why You Should Send a Personalized Gift

    Doctoropen-l

    We all know that when sending a gift your decision on just what to send is based on several factors. I like to call it the 3 W’s

  • Who it is going to
  • Why are you sending it
  • What should I send
  • In today’s marketplace, both brick and mortar stores and in particular internet based gift retailers offer a variety of gift choices. And because of the plethora of information and choices available to today’s consumer the task of picking “just the right thing” can sometimes be overwhelming. Today I offer you 3 reasons why sending a gift that is personalized is a great choice

    1. It shows that you have taken the time to find something that can be customized or personalized just for your gift recipient. This takes an ordinary gift and makes it extraordinary.

    2. It creates what I like to call an “Instant Heirloom”. Whether you are sending a wedding gift, award, corporate gift or any other celebratory occasion gift, when you have the item engraved or customized it usually notes the occasion as well as the date making your gift even more memorable. And when your gift recipient sees the gift in their office or at home it will help to remind them of that special occasion. It becomes a conversational piece as well as a sentimental gift

    3. The WOW factor. I can not emphasize this enough. Most companies offer engraving or personalization for no charge these days. You can find retailers who will customize a gift in a way that takes the initial item and creates a whole new “look and feel” to the gift based on your needs. We do it all the time here at onepassionplace.com and at heartsfolly.com. If a client requests it and it is within our power to do it we are happy to accommodate special orders. Especially for clients serving in the military, law enforcement gifts, anniversary gifts, first responders and awards and gifts for special commendations. We want to be able to show our full support for the people who are marking a special occasion, first responders, our military who put themselves in harms way for our freedom. You know, anyone can sell a gift one time. But we want our clients to know that they are special and that we take their needs very seriously. Lets face it, gifts are important. They must convey a message, a special message. What do you want to say? Let us know. We want to hear your feedback. What do you want to see us offer in the future? What can we do better?
