If you think you might be willing to talk with me about your situation and the changes you have had to make, please send me an e-mail at  I would love to speak with you!

    The economy has made me think more locally. Since I want to maintain "the best for my guests", it is essential to cut costs elsewhere. Therefore, I have learned to shop for food, entertainment and goods within a 10-15 mile radius of my home/business. Not only does this save on gas but I get the added benefit of fresher foods, getting acquainted with my neighbors, enjoying entertainment I might not have sought out previously and supporting the local economy. Local resources are more plentiful than one might think and they are only a click away on the computer. I know the possibilities are almost endless in Chatham County.
