I called into work and told them I had to watch the fog rise, I couldn’t imagine being behind my computer.
They laugh, tell me to have fun and be careful….I promise to send some pictures, and I’m off.
Today I am particularly grateful to be able to work at a company that understands my need to enjoy The Greenbrier Valley and surrounding counties.
On beautiful mornings like this, they automatically expect the text or call saying “I will be in later, the fog on the mount…ains are too beautiful to miss.”
Real Estate is a fast paced business and we work very hard to make sure each and every one of our clients are taken care of.
Our goal is to help you sell and find your perfect home in a timely manner.
As a Marketing Director, I am not always the one that you see or talk to, and if I do answer the phone, I have probably accidentally hung up on you because transferring a call is nearly impossible!
I’m the calm behind this business, the one driving around in my car at 5:30am because the sunrise is too beautiful and I can’t sleep in.
I’m the one who gets a text message from Jill asking me if I am out getting pics of the Greenbrier Valley Sunset!
We at Greenbrier Real Estate Service don’t just want to Market your home or show you the perfect piece of property, we actually care about this sublime part of West Virginia.
We can tell you where to find the perfect sunsets, the best hiking trails, or give you directions to the nearest restaurant.
We will always be there to answer any question you have about this beautiful piece of Almost Heaven.
It’s funny what can happen when you sit on top of a quiet mountain by yourself;
I could quite possibly have the best job in the world, even when you have to perform an impromptu cattle herd.
There is something about a cool September morning. The subtle hints of pending Autumn were all around this morning as I took my morning walk. Soon the trees will yield my favorite colors as reds, yellows, bronze and hints of burgundy fill the West Virginia mountains. Mornings are filled with heavy fog lifting through those hills. The bright morning sun makes the dew filled spider webs glisten like diamonds.
The nights will soon be filled with warm bonfires, sweatshirts and children trying to squeeze in the remaining days before the snow starts to fall. In bed, the open windows will soon replace the AC and quilts filled with their own precious memories and stories with fill the room with conversations and laughter as the kids and and I will tell stories of the good ‘ol days.
I switched the floral summer scents in my house to Pumpkin and lazy evenings are now spent finding new fall recipes on Pinterest. Oh, and Starbucks in getting ready to give us some pumpkin spiced lattes!!!
Soon, we will make memories of our own as we visit the pumpkin patches, take long walks and drives, weekend trips and maybe a ghost hunt or two in October.
But for now, let me just savor the first few crisp mornings of September.
Have a beautiful and blessed Labor Day Weekend…..
Ok….so here are just a few things I am thankful for!!
My mom has been seriously ill the last few months. I am very thankful for her Health and how much she loves my kids! I don’t know what I would do without her. She is the best Grandma EVER!! making memories and always smiling. This is what a Grandma is!!! (Take notes if you must)
I’m so thankful for this guy!! He’s been my best friend since Kindergarten!! He’s my therapist, my shoulder to cry on, my late night texting buddy and the lover of Emojis and GIFs.
This handsome fella is my Daddy!! He is the best Grandpa anyone could ever ask for. A wonderful role model for my son and the great protector of my daughter. The lover of “stealthies” (selfies). YouTube addict. And Smart Phone illiterate. This kid just makes my heart melt! Every time I look at him my heart skips a beat. Watch out world….you are looking at a future preacher.

And the amazing role model Mrs. Sandra is to me. She made me “homeless packs” to take to our trip to NY. She overheard us talking one evening about making little bags for homeless people and spreading some love while we visit NY. she packed 5 gallon bags with: Socks, gloves, hats, scarves, peanuts, pop tarts, tuna, Vienna sausages, carmex…..I’ve never seen anyone pack so much into a 5 gallon Baggie This is Church Husband!!! He’s kinda goofy and makes me smile all the time. The entire church is rooting us on to date. We both know we’d kill each other the first week!! So ladies….he’s also single!!! Thankful she has my sweet tooth and is learning to cook!!! Also thankful for this adorable neighbor kid and one of my daughter’s best buds!! They are hard workers! And always willing to lend a hand!

Quotes at my house on Black friday!
I don’t care of you go outside…just don’t kill each other. And if you do, make sure there is no blood!! I hate the sight of blood before breakfast!
Oh, I just burned my bacon…I better stop dancing!
Are you twerking in the fridge again?
I’m going to need you to close your eyes when you take the first bite of french toast, that way you can thank Jesus for blessing you with your awesome mom who just made killer french toast!!!
This house smells like bacon, looks like a train wreck and sounds like a dance club!!
