Gratitude List- Indie Connection Day

By Angela Carillo on Monday, September, 21st, 2015 in Business, Gratitude List, Soaps.

Me and Donna Maria

1. I’m grateful my sister Lisa talked me into buying myself a Fitbit. I absolutely LOVE it. I love how it challenges me to move more and tracks my sleep.  If I want I can track my weight and water consumption (I do) and my calories (I don’t). I find myself more active because I have it on.

2. I’m grateful I was able to attend the Indie Connection Day in NYC and finally meet Donna Maria in person. I think I’ve been an Indie member for 5 years now. I’ve taken online classes that Donna Maria has offered and I became part of the NYC and Long Island Indies. I’d been looking forward to meeting her for a long time and she didn’t disappoint. Connection Day rocked and I have new goals and enthusiasm for Alegna Soap®.

3. I’m grateful I was able to spend Saturday with my sisters “spring” cleaning the house for my parents so they didn’t have to do it. Especially with them laughing at my Starbucks order (a tall salted caramel mocha latte in a venti cup filled to the top with 2% milk) and fighting about the radio station (Lisa and I lost, Pam won), I think my parents enjoyed watching and listening to us.

4. I’m grateful for the Jewish holidays, because I had Monday and Tuesday off from work and was able to catch up on my soap making.

5. I’m grateful my husband decided to get a Fitbit too.


What are you grateful for this week?

  1. I am sure your parents enjoyed listening to their children. How nice of you to to get together and help them. I know, they have done so much for us it is little in comparison but so many people are left alone. Very giving of you and your sisters to do that.

  2. Donna DeRosa says:

    I’ve been thinking about getting a Fitbit. I didn’t know they could track your sleep. I’ll have to do some research.

  3. Vanessa says:

    I’ve been an Indie for over a dozen years! dM is an amazing woman and I’m so glad you got to meet her in person. I’m looking forward to seeing her again in a couple of weeks at the Indie Connection Day in Portland!

    I am so happy to hear you had such a great time at the Indie Connections Day. I am looking forward to the Portland Connections Day.

    Oh I love the Salted Caramel Latte too. I’ve been hearing about the fitbit for so long now. A friend recommended on and my sister got one a year ago. Think I’m going to get one soon or for Christmas.

    I’m grateful my sister and I finally figured out how to silkscreen after failed attempts. Today was our day of success. 🙂

  6. Angela, I love that you remind me to be grateful for the every day moments each week. XO
