Thanksgiving week is always one of reflection for me. I am thankful for so much – my family, my friends, my dog and cats, and for those who have placed their trust in me with their real estate transactions.
What are you thankful for? While this is a great week for reflection, every day we should take a few moments to reflect on the bounty before us – that we’re alive and breathing, that we have the freedom to do what we want and to be who we want to be, and of course, for those special loved ones in our life. As part of my morning routine, I am trying to incorporate 5 minutes to focus on my daily gratitudes.
Happy Thanksgiving! Whether you’re spending it with family or having a Friendsgiving, be grateful for all that you have.
It’s the time of year when the kids (and adults) dress up in fun costumes and go door to door collecting candy. Here are a few of my favorite neighborhood Halloween activities and not all involve candy.
Edmonds Halloween Extravaganza
Looking for something fun to do with the kids this Halloween. Come to the Coldwell Banker Bain Edmonds office on Sunday, October 28th, 10a-1p, for pumpkin carving and other Halloween activities. This is followed at 1:00 by a no-charge admission movie at the Edmonds Theatre where we’ll be showing Scooby Doo and the Witch’s Ghost.

Trick or Treating
