Spreading Gratitude
Sending my gratitude to you and your loved ones! There is no question that this year has been a challenging one for us all. I wanted to take a moment to share how much I appreciate you! I’m also planning on giving back and showcasing gratitude for the remainder of the year. Here’s how….

CENTRAL TEXAS FOOD BANK 

Over half of all soup kitchens, food pantries and other meal programs rely entirely on volunteers. Donating money or goods can help food go further during the holidays, when resources are stretched. Spending a few hours sorting, packing or delivering food can also make an enormous difference for food banks and the families they serve. Find out more about the Central Texas Food Bank.

30 DAYS OF GRATITUDE

We can all live a happier and more positive life with the practice of gratitude every single day. Your brain cannot experience a negative emotion and gratitude at the same time. By practicing gratitude daily we are training our brain to always be happy and to find the best case scenario in all of today’s events. Here’s a Pinterest link for lots of Gratitude Inspo!

Coronavirus: How to Help and Give

As we watch a pandemic play out on a global scale, it’s easy to feel helpless. But no matter who you are or what your situation, you can make a difference. Even if you’re quarantined at home, there are still many ways to get involved and give back, including donating money or supplies, volunteering virtually, and checking in on people who might need support.

WHAT'S HAPPENING

THANKGIVING DINNERS TO GO! 

It bears repeating: the novel coronavirus pandemic is impacting every aspect of life, and this includes Thanksgiving. As people stay home in their household groups or plan for socially distanced meals, Austin restaurants are here to make the holiday easy for everyone by offering takeout Thanksgiving meals and dishes.

With COVID-19 (rightfully) cautioning some diners against eating indoors, restaurants with beautiful outdoor-dining spaces are well positioned to capture appetites and serve as a dose of eye candy during a lingering meal. Some restaurants put as much focus into designing their outdoor-dining spaces as they do their interiors. Austin’s Jacoby’s makes the list! 

Austin FC on Nov. 18 reveled their primary kit design, which it will debut next year during their inaugural season in Major League Soccer. The jersey features the club’s black and green color scheme in wide vertical stripes. Season ticket members for the 2021 season are officially sold out but visit their site for the waitlist. 

QUEEN’S GAMBIT SPURS CHESS INTEREST 

Netflix has done it again! The streaming service has sparked a renewed interest in chess after the success of its buzzy drama miniseries The Queen’s Gambit, which stars Anya Taylor-Joy as a troubled prodigy who takes the chess world by storm in the 1960s

❤ CLIENT LOVE ❤

This fills my eyes with a few tears and my heart full of joy. I personally knew the sellers of the home that Annie and Brian purchased. I had just helped them move into their dream home in the same neighborhood – then helped Annie and Brian purchase their original home off-market. It was a win for everyone and clearly a perfect wedding venue!
