As you can see there was a great turn-out and all enjoyed. It was held in a builder’s model home so a win-win for all. The builder got to show off this beautiful model home to many realtors last evening.
You can see that I was having a great time and posed with fellow agent Jonathan Osman. Of course we were in the food line.
It was so nice to see everyone decked out and looking their best.

Every agent brought a dish to share and we all got together to give thanks for all that we have. It was absolutely lovely today. It was well attended and the food was delicious. There was so much to choose from and many returned for seconds and thirds. I was good...I did not go back for seconds or thirds.
We started the meal by an agent saying a beautiful prayer over the meal.
Everyone then got their plates and went around the huge food filled (12 comments)

charlotte home info: I Have to Have a Red Door!! - 10/29/11 08:51 PM
Today I was working with a really nice couple from Ireland and as we looked at houses she kept making references for needing to have a red door on whatever house they end up buying.
After I dropped them off I decided to do some research on the meaning of a red door and found some very interesting facts...

Years ago I was so lucky to meet the many wonderful directors and volunteers with Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue. I started really slow when I first volunteered with Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue. You may wonder what one can do to assist and volunteer for a local rescue group in your area. You can volunteer your time to attend and assist with fundraisers. You can volunteer to help transport animals. They have to be transported from where they are rescued from to their foster homes or to the vetinarian for appts. You can donate money. You can volunteer to head up a fundraiser. (11 comments)

Today was a beautiful day in Charlotte. At one point it was about 76 degrees and the sun was out and the sky was blue. Just a yummy day and am so grateful for beautiful fall days like these. Last year I planted a silver maple tree and it is growing fast. I noticed this morning that the top of it is beginning to turn red.
The mums continue to bloom and are beautiful.
I would be thrilled if it stayed like this all winter. It is definitely true... Nothing Could Be Finer Than to Be In Carolina... (15 comments)
