A look back at 2020…

Hi guys! Facebook saw this first, but I would be remiss to not also post it here. These were my thoughts on December 27th – reflecting on that last Sunday of the year.

Hi guys! Whether you’re ready for it or not, 2020 is starting to come to a close, and Christmas is officially 11 days away (yea….only 11). If you’re anything like me, you’re looking around and thinking, ‘hmm, does my child really need another hot wheels car?’ For me, the answer is resounding no, lol. My son has SO many toys that have been given to him from family and friends, I could almost open my own toy store. So, instead of more of the same thing, I wanted to get a little creative and find some other things that he may like. Bonus that they’re educational as well.

Confessions of a Manager

With the buzz of Christmastime, I decided now was a great time to take a little vacation – a stay-cation I guess you could call it because I’m really not going anywhere. 2019 was so full of activity for me.

Being in management has afforded me some incredible things, but it’s also shed a light on something I didn’t realize I needed.

Hurricane Survival Tips from a Florida Native

I’ve lived in Central Florida for pretty much my entire life. I’m in my 30’s now, so I’ve gone through quite a few hurricanes and tropical storms. Not too long ago, Hurricane Dorian was looming outside the front door. This was a slow-moving storm….. very slow moving. It came just as we entered the peak of hurricane season, and made me think about all of the things we need to do to prepare ourselves and our homes before the storm hits. Looking back over the things I’ve done in the past, here are the 4 top things that I do to get ready to endure the storm. I’m no professional or expert on disaster preparedness, so these are just my opinions and examples of things I’ve done that have worked well for me.
