Hi everyone. It’s a somewhat sober Monday as we remember 9/11 and watch the natural destruction happening near and far. I truly hope all who have been affected by these national disasters find help and safety. There are so many ways to get involved, so be sure to consider helping out however you can. I’m excited to get involved with my “real job” to help provide donations and needed supplies to Houston and Florida.
Tom and I had a great weekend in Columbus, Ohio with my brother. We went for the Oklahoma vs. Ohio State football game, but stayed for the food and fun. I’ll be sharing all about it later this week. In the meantime here are our best bets for the week ahead.
