Just over a week ago we shot our very first tutorials along with our first "About Us" video. The experience was exciting (and exhausting). From the moment I woke up that morning I felt the pressure and critical nature of making this day successful...and the videos successful. First was styling the hair just right.

Last week I made a surprise visit to see my mom for an early Mother's Day. My mom was so happy and excited to see me! I was also really excited to see her new place at Ponte Vedra Beach. What's the verdict?Well I absolutely loved it there. Her balcony overlooks a lake with lots of trees around for privacy. We had breakfast out there this morning and it was so peaceful. The complex has all the amenities, a gym, hot tub, a pool, a couple volleyball courts, tennis courts (wish I'd brought my racket), a dog park (where we...
