I am no author.  I am a photographer who never thought I would be a part of the Pink Sisterhood, but in May 2011 diagnosed with Stage 3A triple negative breast cancer, I joined the club. A 44-year-old photographer originally from Fort Mill, living in Rockville Centre, NY for the past 16 years, I was finally getting busy with photography and pet sitting work when I experienced a sore left breast and a swollen lymph node.  This led to 2 needle biopsies, a lumpectomy, 8 wicked chemo treatments, radiation 5 days a week for 7 weeks, and a lot of photos.  ...

Change means reinvention.  Each time a major shift happens in our lives, we have to take control of who we will become or risk never reaching our full potential.  I’ve reinvented myself several times in my life.  Most adults have.  What we must always remember is that we have to choose reinvention.  Each time I’ve done it, I’ve forged my new path deliberately.  Reinvention is neither easy nor smooth. Often we encounter resistance. We don’t want to let go, even of things that cause us pain.  We often struggle with limiting beliefs or stories about ourselves that hold us back...

If it's important to you to keep up with them or be them, then you have to get smart about what you need to cut out: Cable, Gadgets, Dining, etc. It's almost impossible to accumulate wealth if you're spending money before you have it. 2.

The film, Identity Thief, starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy is a hilarious comedy which tells a story about a man whose identity is stolen by a woman.  The film chronicles the side-splitting shenanigans of McCarthy’s character, Diana, as she finances her extravagant lifestyle by stealing the identity of Bateman’s character, Sandy Patterson.  In truth, you can learn some lessons from this comedy which might help you to protect yourself from falling victim to a real-life identity thief.  Spoiler alert!  Trust me, most identity thieves are not as compassionate as the film’s Diana and they will not help you put your...

For two years in a row, the Strawberry Festival Fort Mill was crowned South Carolina Event of the Year by the South Carolina Festival and Events Association. This is a major accomplishment in itself, but when you consider that last year was only its third year in existence, the achievement becomes even more remarkable.  Think about what it takes to pull off any major festival in which the attendance far exceeds the total population of the host town.  Think about the preparation that goes into lining up the events, food, music, vendors, and public space in a way that appeals to...

Here are 7 things you must do before selling your home. 1. FURNITURE - Declutter the living space. You want to make the home feel as large as possible. If you have oversized furniture, then you might want to sell or store it during the selling process and rent smaller furniture. Talk to your real estate agent about hiring a stager. 2. TOYS - Have your child(ren) pick out a few toys and hide the rest, especially before any pictures are taken. Buyers like spaces that feel fresh, clean, and grown up. 3.

Walking is one of the best ways to stay in shape for you and your pet.  A walk can be exhilarating for you, but it is so much more for your pet like all the new smells, things to see, sounds to hear, and places to mark.  It is kind of like happy hour for your pet.  Dogs are a creature of habit.  So, if you would rather wake up by the music of your alarm clock and not the whining and pacing of your pet, walk him at different times throughout the day.  It can be everyday at different times...

If you’re like me, every time you see a dog, you stop, pet it, maybe even talk to it, and certainly admire it.  All dogs are cool; with the exception of maybe those ChEEwawa things.  Okay, I guess in their own right, even them, too.  Upon visual inspection, it quickly becomes apparent that most breeds of dog are built for a purpose.  This is certainly the case with the family known as hunting dogs. Built for speed and endurance, these animals are poetry in motion when at full gate.  For many dog aficionados, there is no more a stunning sight than...

Well known for their fashion, architecture, wines, cheeses, and... strawberries? France is also the home of the fraises de jardin,...

Sipping on a café latte, I watch the breathtakingly beautiful scenery pass by.  I am taken to my inner calmness by the mumbling of the water and the simple wave to a family of bikers along the riverbank.  Ever since we stepped aboard this 4.5 star vessel, we cannot stop wondering why we had not ventured on this cruise until now. We arrived, unpacked, and set off to explore...

Just a few years ago, Vietnam still conjured up all the terrible pictures of the Vietnam War. But since 1990, when it opened its doors to tourism, a lot has changed. The children of the former colonies from Japan, France, and of course the US started to come back to Vietnam, exploring the beauty and culture of this country. Vietnam is a land in the Asian region that is still largely untouched by mass tourism, other than its neighbor Thailand. Meet people who interact with the foreign traveler with such an openness and curiosity, which is pretty astonishing with the background of that country’s...

Ask a dozen people what they think of our education system and you’re likely to get 12 different answers. Perhaps the only point they will agree on is that education is one of the most important indicators of the success of the next generation. And while several folks readily toss in their two cents on the perceived ills of our current system, not many are willing to step off the sidelines. At the opposite end of the spectrum, you have the Partnership for 21st Century Skills (www.p21.org).

  Women and men lose hair for a number of reasons. Just as the causes of hair loss vary, so do the number of medications and treatments below are 5 food for natural hair loss treatment. In men, the most common cause of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia (aka "DHT Hair Loss"). When testosterone, the male hormone, gets converted to DHT the result is hair loss. However, for females, re-growth treatment with anti-androgens and topical treatment with Rogaine are more effective in preventing further hair loss rather than stimulating hair growth. Additionally, since these options are best for preventing hair loss, their effectiveness...

The historic Ratcliffe, built in 1929 in the Mediterranean-Revival style, is home to Bernardin’s restaurant.  Tables dressed in white linen and banquets of white leather are set against sea foam blue walls adorned with contemporary art.  Modern light boxes accentuate the barrel vaulted ceiling, stained glass windows, and classic grooved columns with corinthian capitals.  With all this opulence, one wonders how the cuisine will fare. From appetizers to desserts, you’ll be impressed.  General Manager Chad Cooper describes the menu as “New American cuisine with influences from around the world.”  Indeed!  With something for everyone, this eclectic menu is highlighted by some...

The inaugural Taste of Fort Mill was truly the town’s most tasteful event in 2013.  Held on an evening in April with stunning views from the Springfield Golf Pavillion, the event showcased the epicurean delights of many local restaurants.  Partygoers enjoyed dancing under the stars, wine tasting, entertainment and prizes. This event is the brainchild of Fort Mill resident Cindy Kelly.  As a classroom volunteer at The Palmetto School, Kelly saw firsthand the disappointment on students’ faces, after a beloved teacher’s position was eliminated due to lack of funding. That’s when Kelly decided she wanted to help. As a non-profit organization, 60...

At The Olive Tap Charlotte store, you can sample oils and vinegars from large stainless steel urns called Fustis. Side by side, you'll be able to detect the subtle–and sometimes not so subtle–differences in the various extra virgin olive oil, flavored olive oils, vinegar, and balsamic vinegar products. Once you decide on the varietal(s), your product is bottled on the spot, fresh and wholesome. Find your preference among the Italian, Spanish, Greek, Tunisian, Australian, and Californian products (among others!), or allow a helpful salesperson to make a recommendation based on your food preferences and how you anticipate using the product.

For so many of us, coffee is not merely a part of the morning routine; it’s a lifestyle. Looking into the culture of coffee, you’re not just presented with the presence of major chains like Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks, but also services such as online coffee clubs and locally-owned businesses were you might find more organic coffees. Experimenting with the options is the only way to find your favorite, which is a time investment worth making, since for most of us coffee is an essential part of the day. However, convenience makes everything a little better and coffee is no exception;...

Joe Strollo, former owner of Carlos’ Cafe in Tega Cay, a local Cuban restaurant, prefers Jack Daniel’s American Honey Whiskey with a tubed Montecristo Platinum Series vintage 1999. This stick has a spicy, full-bodied flavor thanks to the Mexican binder, which sits below its smooth Sumatra wrapper.  Priced at $10.99. Harry White, frequent customer of The Cigar & Tobacco Shop in Fort Mill, prefers Belvenie single-malt scotch with a full bodied Prensado produced by Alec Bradley or a LaGloria Cubana “Series R” Maduro.  The LaGloria Cubana is medium to full bodied with a very earthy and spicy aroma.  Priced at...

While watching television the other evening, I began to think about all of the advertisements for different foods and food shows.  For me, some of the most interesting shows are the “travel shows” where a host travels across the United States or to different countries focusing on a single type of food.  I am completely fascinated by the presentation of regional dishes and often interesting combinations that I may never have thought of or read about previously.  There seems to be a new cult following of an old friend to the home cook, bacon.  Yes, bacon!  That delectable cured meat...

Living in the South I think that it is a crime to not like barbecue.  Yes, there you go, I said it! I couldn't imagine denying my palate roasted meat slathered in my favorite barbeque sauce.  Since it is the height of summer, many who reside in the north associate this time of year as "barbecue season", which for Southerners doesn't exist.  It's barbecue season year round here.  But since I know that there are readers from all across varying parts of the country, I'm going to take some time today to share with you how you can make your...

Hey Ya'll, I had the privilege to meet an inspirational lady at recent. Catherine Foerster, the new owner of Fleet Feet Sports, near Baxter Village, inspired me to think about running again. Her passion for running is contagious and has brought her through really hard times and great encouragement. As far as running stores go, this one is la creme de la creme. The associates are trained by medical professionals to ensure you get the best running shoe for your gait and feet. Foerster and her husband came in from Chicago in January...
