Hi, From Carissa 9/27/19

September 27, 2019

Happy Friday Richmond friends! It is officially Fall!  I had a really great birthday, having all of my kids together, was the best gift! My son got sick, but it was still ok I was just so happy to all be able to share the day under the same roof. I received birthday cards from friends and family from all walks of life, it was a reminder to me of just how simple a gesture can make a smile appear. 

The weather has been so "Summery" and although I love the heat, not being able to get out and be near water or just enjoy the sun, makes me ready for sweater weather! 

We have a lot of great info this week, including some fun giveaways, plus do not forget that our local sponsors are working hard to bring you the best of the best. Please be sure to check out our advertisers. When we all support local, we help so many in our community! We couldn't do what we do without the support of our local businesses!

Our Birthday perks are here for all the fun you can cash in for the October Birthdays.
