Fun in the Sun Around the Triangle.

Wake County When I was a kid growing up in Cary, we would go to Pullen Park (I always thought it was called Pool ‘n Park) for the day. This park is the fifth oldest operating amusement park in the United States, and the first public park in North Carolina. Over the...

Home.

The Buzz on Bees.

Bees are essential to getting our crops to produce. They are one of the primary sources that perform pollination.  I have two hives today, and live in the city of Durham. Most people don’t even realize that I have bees because they go about their day collecting pollen...

Repurpose and Reuse.

As a REALTOR®, I see a lot of home full of items accumulated over the years. One of the things I love most about my job is helping clients go through these items and get their homes ready to sell. Moving out of a home is an enormous task, and sorting through items to...

Get Busy Livin’

Last summer on the night before my wedding, I let loose and jumped into the lake with one of my groomsmen and great friends, and he said something that I’ll never forget, “Get busy livin’ or get busy dyin’.” Add to it that just a few weeks before he said this to me, I...
