Greetings my sweet readers, and if you’re still there, tuned in, thank you. It’s no secret that this summer has been ridiculously difficult on us all. Between the fright and worry surrounding Covid, the intensity of race relations in the light of recent events, and a general feeling that we are all trapped indoors, it’s been more than difficult to feel inspired and to therefore inspire you in any way. I’m fortunate that this uneventful summer has turned more than a little eventful for me, so I’m going to try and catch you up on a few things before hopping back in the saddle for our usual twice-weekly posts. Ready?
Oh, man… this one is big. In April, I was approached by our CEO to move to one of my real estate Brokerage’s sister companies. I’m fortunate that this is a small, luxury-style firm here in Louisville, a bit closer to my house than Semonin’s office was. Rather than keeping my title of Sales Manager, I was promoted to General Manager of the Brokerage, and have a team of 37 involved and talented agents. With a bigger than average price point, and a chic branding, I settled in at Wakefield Reutlinger on June 1st.
After our master bath renovation went as smoothly with Miracle Method as it did, we decided to tackle the guest bath as well. As I sit here, the toilet is removed, as is the vanity top and hardware, and the floors and shower have been refinished in a bright white. Painting of the walls and vanity should happen this week, allowing me to get the vanity top, lighting, and accessories in there the week after we return from…
The Honeymoon. Travel is scary right about now, but Bryan and I have been planning our annual jaunt to Palm Springs on our usual date, leaving the Saturday morning of Labor Day weekend. Sure, this is the same trip we’ve been taking the last few years, but this year, we decided to bump our tickets to First Class and call it a Honeymoon. We’ve decided, too, that as much as we lovvvvve staying at the Parker, to try out the calm and vintage Ingleside Inn. I’ve been watching the restaurants out there stay open and offer patio seating, and we figured that if we can still sit down with some of the local business owners for a meal and spend our days lounging by the pool with a book or hiking Taquitz Canyon, it’s worth wearing a mask on an airplane.
While I don’t want to divulge too much just yet, there are some big things in the works for the man and I. I’m hoping to have some fun things ready to announce when we get back from California.
I have an Italian beauty that should be on the market by the end of September, a dramatic townhome, and possibly a tree-house like condo, perched above one of the original St. Matthews farm houses. Stay tuned!
Thank you, again, for allowing me the grace that you have in taking a three month hiatus. I’m so glad to be back.
