Do you love the zoo, too?

When I was a kid, I used to love going to the zoo—to the point that I actually tried to talk my parents into moving close by. To this day, I still love going (my husband I just visited the Tulsa Zoo this month!) I have a feeling I’m not alone. If you’re moving this summer and plan to take a road trip along the way, maybe one of these awesome places will be en route to your new destination!

Volunteer! Make a difference in your community

Gandhi once said “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” If you’re hoping to get connected and make a difference in the community you’re moving to, why not start the search for volunteer opportunities. I think you’ll find that every community in the nation is looking for people willing to help out in some capacity.  

If you’ve volunteered before, you may be familiar with organizations to contact. But if you haven’t, these tips may help you find places to volunteer in your community.

How to Make an Emergency Plan

May 17th, 2013 - 3:55 PM

Are you prepared for an emergency?
In the wake of the terrible storms that devastated Granbury, Texas this week, I began thinking about the fact that my family doesn’t really have a set-in-stone emergency plan. What would we do in the case of an emergency like fire, tornado, earthquake, etc.? Unfortunately, I have to say that with the exception of severe weather, I don’t know what we would do. We don’t have a plan. Thinking through this also caused me to consider the people we talk to every single day who are moving into areas where they may experience extreme weather that they’re not accustomed to. Do they have a plan?
