Another reason in which to love Fernie …

Christmas in Fernie is magical, it’s that simple. The mountains, the snow, the lights, and the carolers on the street corner … the Christmas spirit is everywhere I turn. But what I love the most this season is the genuine desire from local business owners wanting to put smiles on faces of their Christmas shoppers.

Here is a little story about why (once again) I love and appreciate Fernie …

Every Christmas, I design a t-shirt for husband and kids. The design that I create represents something significant that happened for them in the past year. And I am tickled that these shirts are now HIGHLY anticipated Christmas Eve gifts. With the help of the cheery folks at Giv’Er Shirts I drop in to pick out the t-shirts and get the design in motion. Erin’s insight is fantastic and she has yet to steer me wrong!

Well … this year my family stepped up and got ME a Christmas Eve t-shirt. I was thrilled but even more so when I opened it up to find a Loaf t-shirt – you know the one’s that the Loafers wear when they so happily serve you a fresh loaf of the BEST bread in town? Not only did I get the t-shirt, getting the t-shirt on the afternoon of Christmas Eve meant my family going on a covert trip with Phil to his house for a loaf t-shirt … when my husband shared this story with me it warmed my heart. It is with absolute admiration that I witness locals truly loving what they do as it comes across in everything they do.

I will wear my t-shirt with pure joy – thank you!
