Meet “Tater”… a Brevard dog apparently deserving of his own Facebook fan page…

Share this on Twitter

… for two weeks in a row now, separate guests on the Brevard Bites Food Tour have extolled the awesomeness of the VRBO they are staying in AND the dog that resides on the property… Tater!  They show me photos and go on and on about how wonderful (and big) Tater is (how he drinks their coffee, etc.) and how much fun he is to have around.  Seriously, everybody loves this dog! ;-)

… message me if you’re interested in joining one of our new meet-up groups forming now!

Share this on Twitter

… 57 ladies in Brevard and Asheville have signed up already.  These are nurturing and supportive groups of women caring for other women, encouraging them in all areas of life.  No matter your dream, our goal is for you to walk away from these meetings feeling loved, inspired and equipped with powerful practical life strategies for reaching your goals. Or, if you’re just into socializing, we’re into that, too!  :-)  We are women empowering other women to be the best we can be (mind, body & spirit)!
