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 & Allergen Free Wellness Event

My whole life changed (for maybe the billionth time) on November 3, 2017.

I had watched my son graduate from his Army AIT training the day before and traveled back from SC only to wake up with my entire face so swollen it looked as though I could burst at any moment.. the pain was real. I had done some blood work at the docs a few weeks earlier and we had not gotten the results so my husband drove me straight to the doc that day to demand some answers. I was told a few tests needed to be redone but the one thing she knew for sure is no more gluten... I blogged about it here. Before you ask, no I have not found out if it's Celiac, Lupus or anything else, even though the doctor seemed concerned about Celiac. Insurance issues. Yay life...
The last year has been a huge journey. Figuring out that EVERY little thing matters. Cross-contamination is real (if you don't change your gloves I will have a reaction), almost everything has gluten in it from shampoo to sausage and you often f…

#FindFrancis: Robert McLaughlin AKA: Rob Francis/Franchise

This is not an easy blog to write but one that is needed as I am a blogger and I have to use every resource available to seek help.

Today marks 2 weeks since our friend Francis was last seen and there has been absolutely no leads to his whereabouts. Right now we have to use all mediums available to spread the word and get his face seen. Only one local news station has covered his disappearance. That is not ok. He is a resident of Duval County and everyone in and around Jacksonville should see this flyer and be on the look out for him!

Rob is a music artist here in Jax, a laid back guy who works hard and is friendly with everyone. I personally have known him about nine years and he is one of the nicest guys I know, never disrespectful and always great to have a convo with about anything from movies and music to the world we're living in. He has had the same group of close friends the entire time I have known him and my husband and I run into him at EVERY ArtWalk in downtown Jax tha…
