Today a friend gave me this cute delight pin.
I thought it would be fun to look up the word delight in the
dictionary and was delighted that the definition of delight is joy....and to give joy.

For me it is a joy to work at Joyworks and I hope that shopping
at Joyworks is a joyful and delightful experience for you.

Happy Birthday Luanne!
