The Advent Conspiracy + Gift of Time Certificate

I saw this for the first time last year, and it really changed my game plan for the Christmas season. This is worth the 2 minutes and 39 seconds of your day....


I posted this again on facebook this year, and my friend Marisol had this super fantastic idea. She asked me to create a gift certificate of time to give her loved ones this Christmas, since she has been so busy lately. I realized that this was something we all could use from our loved ones, and could also in turn give to loved ones. I created this certificate to share with you, in hopes that it comes in handy this advent and Christmas, as we attempt to slow down the crazy world around us and make time for those who matter most. 


You can download your own to print for free. I set it up so that you can print three to a page!
I hope this helps bring back the true meaning of Christmas to someone in your life!

Wishing you all a very beautiful advent season!

    When Matthew was born my best buddies gave me a couple of gift certificates, they were all like this: "good for 1 hour of baby sitting", "good for 10 diaper changes"... and so on, very cool and thoughtful!
