I was recently contacted by an old friend on FaceBook.  While we were catching up I told him I was about to skydive for the first time.  He was very excited because he has been wanting to do it for many years.  As we traded messages back and forth I was even more encouraged to dive. My phone and ...
I have to admit my eyebrow was raised when I saw the sign "Zaxby's Coming Soon" by the roadside.  As in everything, google lead me to the answer.  It is a very popular chicken franchise restaurant.   I dropped in to take pictures but the manager said I needed corporate approval so I cannot post t...
When I was a teenager I thought being a Realtor would be the coolest job in the world!  I didn't personally know any Realtors.  The only examples I saw were attractively dressed professionals driving big shiny cars and living in beautiful homes.  They set their own work schedules and helped famil...

Today is a different story.  I...

I love volunteering and giving time to charitable organizations.  There is nothing like the feeling you get knowing you have made a difference in someones life.  In my busy world I cannot always find time and in this market the donation dollars are becoming more sparse than ever.  However, Blue M...
For my first Thankful Thursday post I would like to introduce Abigail.  I call her Abby, Abbysmell, and anything cute that pops into my brain at the time. I wanted a small dog.  I have been a dog parent for many years but they have always been large.  You see, my dogs are rescued.  Shelters usual...
