Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..

We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Please make sure you hit subscribe and share her page, as she has worked hard on it all by herself from shooting to editing. She has been considering some mentoring with younger kids and I think she has potential for motivational speaking but she said she would have to think about it. I am sure public speaking may concern her a little but I know once she has done it, she'll fall in love with it.

The rest of the kiddos are doing well. My oldest was sick a few days so we got some hang out time in the hospital together but she is on the mend, my oldest son is starting college this fall and will be coming home for a month or so this summer from the Army, my middle daughter is kicking ass in the Army still as she preps for deployment this summer and my youngest son is getting his grades up and really making me think about getting him into professional gaming, the kid can really game.. lol

Hubby and I have been pitching more for grants and opportunities for Salted Culture. Jax Bridges is allowing us to pitch for the upcoming Bridge to Business event since we were unable to last year. I am really excited about that as I believe it's something that will help us in a huge way. The pic of us was from an amazing shot from the talented Adela H, book her TODAY for your hair, makeup AND photo needs! She came to our place and got some great pics for us to use on our website and promotions. We have also been working on ways to provide more content and become a more viable option for advertising and sponsoring to companies as we grow. Working for others while growing a business is difficult but we push through towards making our dreams a reality.

Stay tuned for more updates with Salted Culture as well as us as a whole and remember your likes, shares and support means more than money.. well sometimes. lol

Gluten-Free on I-95

I love traveling.. road trips, flying and even by boat. I just love to go. I didn't travel a lot as a kid.. Until I was 10 the only states I'd been to were my home state of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia and Washington DC. By the time I'd graduated I had added North Carolina and Kentucky. I live in Florida now but my first time here was in 2002 and at 38 years of age I have only added South Carolina, Georgia, Texas, New York (airport only) and Connecticut to the list as well as The Bahamas (Freeport) and Cuba. I still have a million places I want to go.. Now though it's all a bit trickier because of my allergies.. I have been diagnosed as allergic to gluten, cats, pine trees and a few other things. I seem to have reactions to other things and need to be tested for more in addition to other health issues I have that food can complicate. This makes traveling HARD. I have to be careful at every place I go.. eating at events is completely out of the qu

Lost Dreams

It's 2011, times are tough and everyone is out here grinding to get to the top... So many have lost their jobs due to the recession and have to take jobs doing whatever comes their way just to have food on the table and a roof over their head. Not many really want to flip burgers or work the local department store register but if you want to survive we do what we have to do. It's how the country works... if there was noone flipping burgers, where would we get our food? What does this have to do with dreams? well a lot.... As a child one of the questions we are asked most often is what do you want to be when you grow up? Some ponder this and reply with whatever their mommy or daddy does, others reply doctor or fireman, some just don't know. We are told we can do anything! We can concure the world if we work hard, pay attention and try.. then real world hits... you gradute school and have more bills than zeros on your check, you get pregnant, or hurt yourself and lose a s

Baecation at Sunrise Painting

Have you ever heard a song and just saw a visual in your mind as you listened? During the COVID 19 Pandemic I have found myself painting even more. Having created my whole life I'd never painted actual paintings on canvas. My medium has primarily been wood and glass, learning as I go with no real teachings from anyone other than hours and hours of playing with my Gramma's paints or watching my Mom draw. When painting my first canvas piece of a sunrise last year I immediately knew I needed to paint more on canvas. I grew up at a time where music videos were EVERYTHING. The effects, guest appearances and story lines mattered. When most songs from my teen years start playing I immediately see the video in my head and think back to what was happening in my life at that time and the impacts the music and more made on me. That's what art does. It comes in so many forms but it is always a part of the times. After painting that first canvas I was riding in the car one day and th
