Hosting a party and inviting people into your inner sanctuary is a selfless act.
Twenty-seven years ago, I had my first date with my husband, Larry, at the once legendary rock-n-roll club Dub’s in Gainesville.
One of my favorite sayings hangs above my desk on a hand-painted plaque, lovingly crafted by my niece, Ashley. It reads, “Aspire to Inspire before you Expire.” I love this quote because it’s a constant reminder that life is about aspiring to do great things and inspiring others to do the same before this one brief and precious life of ours is over.
I love this time of year, not just for the holiday fetes, festivals and food free-for-alls, but let’s face it—for the shopping!
I’m not a city girl. Rather, I consider myself more of a beach bum. I was born two miles from the coast and for most of my life, a strong gravitational pull has kept me within the same distance from the eastern seaboard.
Parties and galas and balls, oh my! With cooler temperatures come packed social calendars, but don't let October and the upcoming event season scare you.
You're never too old, or too young, to realize what's truly important in life.
