It seems like forever since I last wrote a Fort Thomas Matters column so for those of you who don't know, my family added one more girl into the mix with the birth of my daughter, Marlowe, on December 19. You don't really know the power of community until you see the outpouring of support you get following a major life event. For those of you who hang on my every word and avidly await my next story (wait, surely no one like that exists, right?), I want to thank you for being so patient with me. Bringing a third child into the mix over the holidays was not the easiest of tasks. My favorite comedian Jim Gaffigan said "You want to know what it's like having a fourth kid? Imagine yourself drowning than someone hands you a baby." I would imagine he'd say the same thing about a third child; at least that's what I'm hoping. Otherwise, I'm a slacker. Needless to say, it takes a whole lot of encouragement to leave the house, especially amidst "Polar Vortex: The Sequel". So, in protest, I have decided the only way I will be leaving this winter is with the proper incentives. If, like me, you're suffering as well, then you will love this new series to help us beat the winter blues: "Fort Thomas Free Fridays"!
The concept is simple. Every Friday for the next four weeks (or possibly longer if I get more giveaways), I will be posting an item or gift certificate for one of the FTM family local shops. To enter to win, all you have to do is Share our Facebook status. We like your "likes" but please dare to share to enter to win.
This week's giveaway comes to us from Fort Thomas Central. Fort Thomas Central is a specialty boutique shop located in the center of town.
