My dress!

Can you tell from Rachel’s face that she is not happy? This was supposed to be her BIG day and look what happened to her $7500 dress.  And if that wasn’t enough, she just found out that the caterer went out of business last week and she’s out her $1000 deposit.  And the worst part- […]

So much to do, so little time.

Ever notice how much there is to do in the Glens Falls area? And its not just when the sun is shining and warmer. It seems like almost every weekend and many weekdays, there is a ton of stuff going on. The tough thing is making the choice of what to experience. This past Saturday […]

A m2con kinda day!

So here it is Thursday morning March 7th and it is the day of the BIG dinner. Do you know what is unfair? Being told 6 weeks ago or so that you have to give a speech. Do you know how many times I have “thought about” this speech. You are correct-I’ve lost track. Boy […]

Back to Blogging!

My apologies to my blog and anyone paying attention! I won’t even tell you the last time I posted. Anyone else have problems keeping up? Life is busy and fast and noisy. But it is also very good especially in the most challenging times. One year ago at this time, I was in the middle […]
