WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT Celebrating the Special People in Our Lives

offer and the job we’re doing at In the Bag Cleaners. I didn’t focus on the people on the other end of our services. Then one year, around Christmas, I had a realization about who, not what, is truly important: our clients. This time of year tends to do that to you, doesn’t it? It shifted my perspective. Instead of being hyperfocused on our services, I turned my attention to the people we’re serving. I became passionate about our clients, and that turned our services into offerings they can fall in love with. It made a huge difference in my personal outlook and in contributing to what we do. When it comes down to it, that’s our driving force. It’s about the people we interact with, from those within our homes and at work to the person who helps us bag our groceries. At our stores, we’re excited to be part of a few local efforts that recognize the people in our community. Operation Holiday and the Warm Hearts Campaign are two causes we feel very honored to be a part of. They are meeting needs in our community during this festive season. Around Wichita, there are plenty of ways to get into the holiday spirit. A lot of the neighborhoods here in town go all-out, decorating their homes with lights and festive decorations. It’s so cool to drive around and see what people come up with. A few years ago, Aram and I enjoyed a light tour from a whole new perspective — the night sky! We went on a helicopter ride with a local company that created an amazing experience. Given the spectacular views from under the comfort of blankets while drinking hot cocoa, it was very romantic. We both loved it.

We are full-swing into the holiday season! What do you most look forward to this time of year? Christmas is one of my favorite holidays because it’s a celebration of family, love, and reflection at the end of the year. Christmas is just such a festive time! People cherish their relationships by making time for their loved ones, traveling, and preparing home-cooked meals for one another. Plus, spending time with the people I love is what life is all about. Around the holiday season at home, we all take a few days just to “clock out” of everything and enjoy our time together. I already make it a rule to do this on the weekends so I can be totally present with Aram and our kids, and I make extra time for it around the holidays. Unless there’s relationship-building involved, it’s not as important as whatever I’m doing with the family.

In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we are doing a helicopter light tour giveaway. Look for more information on that inside the newsletter.

I hope you enjoy the special time with your loved ones this season. From all of us at In the Bag Cleaners, happy holidays!

Relationships are what I prioritize in all aspects of my life now, but I didn’t always have this outlook. For a long time, I was in love with the services we
