Duchess Digest: How Do You Stay Connected?

By Jill Brown

It’s the holiday season and Single Minded Women and the Duchess Digest want to know, what are your holiday traditions to stay connected?

Share with us your favorite family holiday traditions for staying in touch this season and win a VTech DS6151 cordless phone!

Maybe you send handwritten Christmas cards vs. printed photo ones? Perhaps you make a goal out of calling your Nana every Sunday to tell her you love her? Or do you all gather around the kitchen to cook family recipes? What are the best ways to stay in touch when the holidays get hectic?

We announced this fun seasonal giveaway last week and it’s still going strong. Need a new cordless phone system for your home, office or for a gift? You can win one now! All you have to do is leave your comments below (or email your comments to Jill@SingleMindedWomen.com and I’ll post them for you) to be entered into the sweepstakes this month for a free cordless phone from VTech. Winners will be selected at random and there is no limit to how many comments and traditions you can share. A winner will be drawn and announced in a special Single Minded Women.com column the first week of January 2011. What a great way to ring in the new year!

It’s that simple! VTech is celebrating the power of storytelling as a way to strengthen quality connections and propel favorite cultural and family traditions. They’ve teamed up with us to help encourage consumers to share their holiday stories. VTech’s StayGrounded.com, an online destination for promoting the art of good conversation to build relationships and personal connections, features advice from Dr. Michelle, (to see the past feature Single Minded did on Dr. Michelle check the links below) as well as weekly polls, tips, and articles on building bonds with friends and family.

So stay in touch this season and share with other Single Minded Women how you’re doing so!
