… September 11-23rd, 2018 at the Tryon International Equestrian Center… who wants to go with me?… the best events to watch are jumping, dressage or eventing… :-)
… 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! ;-)
… so proud that Matt took the last few years and turned the experience into what is now an incredible opportunity…. I’m excited at what the future holds… xo
… 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)!
… this saying on plaques and wall hangings is HUGE I’ve learned… I’ll pass on the home decor version, and wait for the real thing… (at Hunters & Gatherers on Main Street)…
… I’m still smiling about how much fun this group was this afternoon… ;-)
… dinner at Wine Down… also some planning for the new meet-up groups in Brevard and Asheville (I can’t believe 43 women have already signed up!)… I love the idea of strong and happy/healthy women coming together to motivate and encourage each other to be the best we can be!
… sometimes they’re interesting to look at… little glimpses of life in Brevard ;-)
… new non-stick baking cake pans, new digital meat thermometer, country towels, and more…. xo
… got to see and hug on my sweet friends (Brevard Music Center President) Mark Weinstein & his amazing/beautiful/talented wife, Susan Marsee… thinking back ladies, take it from me, if a wise and present person of integrity ever gives you life advice, be sure to listen!… I didn’t a few years ago, and I should have… Mark Weinstein = smart man! ;-)
