I personally want to express my appreciation for our Smart Start of New Hanover County for Teacher Appreciation Night. It was so enjoyable to be able to try new skincare products, get a massage, make bath bombs and lip balm and to also enjoy some awesome snacks. It feels so great to be appreciated!!!! 🌻🌻
