Choose Better, Drink Sunshine and Brighten Your Life

I am delighted to be working with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to highlight an awesome NC business that will be at the Homegrown Fare, which is an activity at the Got to Be NC Festival, May 19-21.

I feel like I’m 9 agian – sitting at the table listening to my mom saying I can’t get up until I take a bite of the eggplant parm she slaved over.

At Press with Paige from The Positive Pit Bull

A couple of weeks ago, I had the great delight of sharing lunch with Paige from The Positive Pit Bull. We met up at Press Coffee+Crepes in downtown Graham, and I couldn’t wait to hear what she had planned for her pitty projects in 2017. If you aren’t familiar with The Positive Pit Bull, here’s a snippet from the non-profit’s Facebook Page: The Positive Pit Bull is a non-profit 501(c)(3) focused on changing the general negative perception of pit bulls.
