What a crazy Pandemic Year we’ve all been through! It’s made us so grateful for what’s really important in life. We found this quote and thought it was perfect: “Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.” Hence, the name for our versatile Topper! It’s the perfect solution when you need just a little extra warmth. This quote is from Henry Ward Beecher, a famous social reformer who supported Women’s suffrage and the abolition of slavery during the 1800’s.
