Once upon a time, I met with a psychic.  Or a seer.  That word “psychic” is so charged, you know?  Anyways, I met with a man who has the ability to see beyond the obvious and draw connections between the seemingly disconnected.  Which is not the point of this story.  The point is that he asked me what I really loved; what got me super excited.  And I said, “presence.”  Because I just love when I’m with someone and they are totally and completely with me, too.  Not worrying about their grocery list.  Not checking their phone.  Not watching TV.  Just being present.

But this guy thought I said “presents.”  Like birthday presents.  Which was an awesome, hilarious mistake.  And is also true.

It also perfectly fits into Pay What You Want Week, which is happening very soon.  Every year, for my birthday, I do a Pay What You Want Week because I love my work.  And because I love the idea of giving presents on your birthday.  And because I love seeing a bunch of clients for my birthday.  And because it’s always so fun to see what people bring me (last year I got pumpkin pecan waffles!  and flowers!  and luscious lotions!).  And because I can.  ‘Cause I’m the boss.

So, because I love presence, and I’m never more present than during a session, and because I love presents, it’s Pay What You Want Week for my birthday every year.  But, because my youngest sister is getting married and I’ll be in Chicago for the week leading up to my birthday, I’m doing it a little bit early this year.  I hope you don’t mind.

Saturday, April 26th through Friday, May 2nd will be Pay What You Want Week.  It’s just what it sounds like, but in case you need further explanation, here’s how it goes:  You book a session during that week, just like you normally would.  Then, you come in and receive said session, just like you normally would.  Then, you pay what you want.  Easy, peasy.  You can choose a dollar amount that works for you.  Or you can bring pumpkin pecan waffles.  Or you can sing me a song.  Really.  Pay what you want.  I hope you’re as excited as I am.

Here’s to presence!  And presents!  Happy spring, SassyPants!  I hope to see you during Pay What You Want Week!
