One of my favorite things about working at My Own Labels is seeing some of the great ideas our customers come up with. Recently, a coworker showed me a recent coaster order. They chose our Caption style featuring an amazing photo of a group of women wearing bright colored rain jackets in a Utah canyon. Both of us agreed it was a great photo and there had to be a great story behind it. So I contacted the customer, Kristin from Nashville, TN and was thrilled at her eagerness to share her story!
We are a group of 12 moms from Nashville, TN who have been hiking together for over 12 years. We all came together because of our children (30 between us) and have stayed together long after our kids have grown and gone. The youngest of our group finally turned 50!
We hike together all over the country. This year we spent about a week in Utah. The day pictured was one that we had planned for a long time. We had hired a guide to take us into the canyons. Unfortunately we woke to hard rain and lots of doubts about how our day would go. We decided to go for it and had one of our best days ever hiking. And we’ve had a lot of great hiking!!
I had the coasters made to use as gift tags for my Mountain Momma Granola to give to all of them this year for Christmas. I punched a hole in them to be able to tie them up with a ribbon, but I will be sure to let them all know that they are to be used as coasters. I have been using myownlabels.com for many years. I can always count on you to “class up” whatever my homemade gifts are.
Thanks to Kristin and the rest of the Mountain Mommas for sharing their story!
