Roxy's Snow Day

We don’t get much snow in Charlotte and when we do it’s usually a big event.

Happy belated New Year to all! This time of year is always good for reflection as well as looking ahead thinking of renewal and change. I know many people are hungry for change with all of the bad economic news and the anxiety it has created. I’ve been around long enough to know that tough […]
