Since we could all use a little positivity in our lives, here’s an event to remember – Love Jeffco!
A couple hundred of our Jeffco friends were in attendance this past February and it was such a fabulous evening. We all loved celebrating our community with a fun night of awards, hugs, and smiles. Jonna and I had so much fun planning our surprise awards and found it so difficult as there were hundreds of worthy recipients. Here are the awards we gave out:
