Hi, From Carissa 8/16/19

August 16, 2019

Happy Friday Richmond friends! This was a week that seemed to drag out with no real direction, yet, I had so much to do!  Do you know what I mean? I am feeling all of the emotions of one daughter getting ready to go back to school, one daughter already having moved out and living her best life and our son getting ready to enter his junior year- in his way. It all has me feeling BLAH! I know it will all be ok and it is all part of this thing called life- but, this week has me wishing it was June. 

We had a great night this week visiting my oldest at her apartment downtown, we had dinner, shopping, and ice cream. It was fun and I was really proud of watching her show off her home to friends. I know I say this all the time, but our city is really cool! 

Welcome, Tuckahoe Orthopaedics to our business directory. We look forward to great content from them and you can access all info on their services and locations in the directory. 

Each week we will share some back to school tips and info, slow and steady to get ready- this week we have a few more, including one by me and the transition of his sister headed to college.
