Last week, I took my first mom-cation. I went to Seattle, and for the most part, traveled around by myself. I had a wonderful time. Beyond the sights I saw and the food, I met some interesting people—Tony the bartender at Rocco’s, Richie the shoe salesperson at Nordstrom, the fish-throwing guy at Pike’s Place.
One of the best things of my profession is how it has made me so curious about people. I’ll ask anyone anything. Usually, I can get some great insight, and at the very least a telling response to my questions.
It was great to get away, but now I’m back and in the throes of the holidays. Thanksgiving in a few days, then we launch into “birthday season” at my house, and of course Christmas.
Be sure to check out Local Business News for some great holiday shopping ideas while you’re looking through the Black Friday ads, too.
From my family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!

Clawson has voted to prohibit the sale, growth and distribution of marijuana within the city. Michigan voters cast their ballots to legalize marijuana, but individual cities can elect to allow or prohibit the business of pot. For more information on how the city voted, click here.
