Welcome to all readers from the Morning News! Thank you for checking out my website. If it is your first time here, feel free to read through all of my archives by using the “Archives” feature on the far right sidebar. You may also want to check out my links page, there are a lot of great Florence businesses linked there. There is an events calendar with some ideas of fun things coming up in Florence. You can also friend me on Facebook..Here are some of the posts I consider to be my greatest hits:
You may be wondering why I write this website. So often all we hear about a community is the bad… murders, shootings, stabbing, wrecks, swine flu, etc. I worry that it makes us forget to look for the positive, to be excited about the community that we live in. I promised myself I would try to help make Florence better, and I hope that in some small way I am.
We all need to step out of our comfort zone, and I have really challenged myself over the past year. Click to see a photo post that encapsulates a little bit of what I am trying to do.

(Come back tomorrow. I think I finally have the “Where in Florence was the Flossip?” that will stump everyone!)
I also ask that if you think you know who Flossip is, to please not say. I realize that people will suspect and guess, but it has been proven that part of the fun is in the mystery– so please keep the mystery alive. Thanks!
