A few weeks ago, I went to my very first Thirty-One open house and got to see first-hand how cool and unique the products are. I fell in love with a whole slew of products, but only bought a few things at the time. Then I decided to book my own! That way, I could share my favorite products with my favorite blog readers (that’s you!), and I could get some of the goodies I still have my eye on, using my host rewards.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about vision, thanks to lots of amazing and influential people in my life and on the outskirts. And this little blog-o-rama has become a really exciting way for me to hone in on the things I’m completely passionate about and love to share. Someday I’ll write a more detailed post on why this has become a hot topic for me lately, but for now I just want to let you in on why imanimama.com exists at all.

Every Wednesday, my posts will be focused on why we chose the things we do, have or believe. We’ll call them “Why We Chose” Wednesdays. Hope you enjoy this little teaser…why we chose a dog.
Let me be honest. We didn't choose a dog as much as this dog chose us.
