This past week was a ton of fun! I had the pleasure of driving down south to North Carolina to visit with family and conduct a couple of Feng Shui Consultations for clients in Washington, D.C. along the way.However, the main reason for heading south was to attend my first-ever, AOL (Art of Improvisation) event, hosted by Music for People. Essentially, this weeklong event was a deep dive into musical improvisation. There were about 70 attendees from all around the country, varying in background with musical experience. Some were teachers and drum circle facilitators, others were professional musicians, and aspiring musicians. Each day and evening, as a collective we were introduced to a variety of improvisation music-making techniques, theories, and endless opportunities to play, dance, ...

Whenever I work with potential buyers in the Columbia, South Carolina area, I typically am asked "What is there to do on the weekends?". While Columbia is not a large city in comparison with Charlotte and Atlanta, we have a wide variety of entertainment so that everyone is sure to find something of interest. This Saturday. my husband and I did one of my favorite Saturday morning activities: we went to Soda City on Main Street. Soda City is a large farmers market that has evolved over the past several years to become very popular with the locals. It is a great opportunity for families, dog lovers, and young people to see local vendors and enjoy delicious food.  An ideal trip to Soda City farmers market for me is to first go by the vegetable and fruit stand. We pick up a box, fill it with...
