This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of 23andMe. All opinions and my love for genetics are 100% my own.
Who are you? A mom, a wife, a brother or uncle maybe? A hair dresser, an insurance agent or even a doctor. Maybe you’re an animal lover or music may be your passion. Yes these are all little pieces of who you are, but many people don’t consider answers beyond what most can see at face value. Genetically, who are you? Being melting pot that our society is today, I would venture to guess that most people don’t know exactly what they are genetically.
For instance, I’ve spent my whole life identifying as Cherokee and Irish (awesome combo right?!). Yes I know that I am definitely of Native American Heritage and of Irish descent, but I highly suspect that there’s more to me than that if I look deeper. Hubby on the other hand believes he is a tiny bit Canadian Indian and Irish but being as his mother was adopted, he’s not 100% sure. With the holidays quickly approaching, there’s no better time than now to talk genetics with all the family that will be coming and going and what better gift to give (or receive) than the chance to understand what makes you who you are?!
This year you can do just that with 23andMe. At 23andMe, the belief is that your genetic information has the power to bring you closer to the ones you love. How better to learn about ourselves and our family origins than DNA? 23andMe offers two different Personal Genetic Services; (1) Ancestry Service and (2) Health + Ancestry Service. The Health + Ancestry Service provides insights on your genetic ancestry, traits, health and more. 23andMe analyzes, compiles and distills the information extracted from your DNA into 75+ reports you can access online and share with family and friends.
How both services work in 3 simple steps:
1) Order your 23andMe kit
I’m super excited to see how hubby’s report comes back and I’ve ordered another kit for myself. Once we have the results I’ll be sharing them here so stay tuned! Personally, I can’t think of a better gift to get or give for Christmas this year. If you agree, 23andMe has special holiday offers through Dec 26th. Just visit their website and check out offers and get kits for yourself or your family today! What do you think your genetic make-up is? Let me know in the comments below and thanks for reading!!
