So, I’ve done some research and I should probably share it with you. Look, I know it may be shocking, but hear me out. As it turns out, binge-watching Flipping Out With Jeff Lewis, HGTV, and Rehab Addict does not make one a real estate expert. No matter how much you love those sassy Joshes from Million Dollar Listing, they may not be the best teachers of success in the real estate market, though I sure do like their parties. Tarek & Christina, Jonathan & Drew, et. al are probably not the ones to consult about real estate in the Dayton Ohio market. There is no amount of Shark Tank … [Read more...] about What Does It Mean To Invest In Community?

So, the best/worst thing just happened to my life. First, OMG, Cake Hope & Love DELIVERS NOW! Second, oh no, Cake Hope & Love delivers now. Cupcakes on demand! I have been a very vocal supporter of my favorite little bakery ever since they started in their home kitchen. I ordered a cake a few years ago that needed to be "a little sparkly, with maybe some green, and some zebra stripes" and Shannon whipped up the most fabulous birthday cake that any lil 10-year-old has ever seen. From that day on, my obsession with Cake Hope & Love has been unshakeable. CH&L owners, … [Read more...] about Bring All The Cupcakes!
A hearty laugh If you know me, you know that I'm quick with the jokes. It has taken me a couple months to get to the point that I can have this conversation without laughing. What's so funny?

Well on June 22, 2015, I found out first hand just how un-funny heart issues can be. I woke up and was getting ready for work like any other morning. I ignored the weird pressure in my chest, a heaviness I was unfamiliar with. It was only when I had a head full of … [Read more...] about I Heart You…But I’m Not Even 40
