Send Me Your Favorite Local Must-Do Attractions!

It has gotten so chilly the last few days! BRRRRR……but I love this time of the year. I love the cold nights and the warmer days. With those colder days, brings us one step closer to the holidays. So crazy how fast time flies by. I know people (myself included) say that all the time but it really does. Sometimes it is a little scary where the time goes.

I will be 45 in January, that is kind of crazy to believe and if my Palm Reader I saw in India was correct, a little over half my life has already been experienced! I have a lot I want to do to the new house but I am for sure ready to travel and want to make time for experiencing things locally or within a day’s drive.

Me and Mr. Bob

Me and my best buddy Mr. Bob – we always do selfies now on our hikes! :)

I would love to get feedback from all of you and maybe compile it into a blog post so we can share experiences. So send me your favorite local things to experience, doesn’t matter what it is – places to take some type of lessons; historical places; cool art digs; festivals; unique food experiences. Whatever you think is important to do close by.

One of the things I have really enjoyed is my hiking trips. Even though I only get to go once a month, the scenery and just calmness that comes with being in nature and around amazing people totally sets me right again.

In September we did a hike at Sassafras Mountain which is the highest point in South Carolina. You can take a tiny walk from the parking lot to see the lookout and you could do a hike if you wanted to as well. Below is a link for more info on the trail.

It’s All About Those Feet, No Fungus!

L.R.. Dr. Canuso and meL.R. and I met Dr. Canuso at the tradeshow in October. She is super nice and L.R. thought we should bring Dr. Canuso’s line of foot care into the shop. I was pretty shocked by this as she had said “oooohh gross” when we had walked by the booth earlier that day. But her tune changed after we took the class, “The Science of Beautiful Feet” taught by Dr. Canuso.

Check my blog post all about what we learned from Dr. Canuso.
