Hi everyone! I’ve been crazy busy on the back end of the site, working on the January 2020 issue, and wrapping up personal business for 2019. I am super excited to be starting my daily Around Edmond blogs, after taking a bit to clarify what I wanted this accelerated blog to do for you all, moving into 2020.

Watching everyone’s stories at Instagram and Facebook, a lot of you took pre holiday vacations as your Christmas gifts this year, and what a seriously good idea, this particular year. With the vitriol going on nationally, a little down time is just what we all need to escape from the 24/7 bickering from our elected officials.

With the shortened holiday season, I’ve even seen some of you haven’t started shopping yet, and are just finishing up your decorating. That’s where I am currently. Half my tree is fluffed, with a hole in the tree at my desk’s eye level. So distracting. Tomorrow I am heading out to enjoy our community’s seasonal offerings then I am heading home to finish fluffing and decorate my tree!


Santa Clause and Mrs. Clause were at Citizen’s Bank today and will be available for pictures Saturday from 8-2 pm! Be sure to stop by and grab your pictures and enjoy free hot chocolate and cookies! There will also be carriage rides available until 3 pm.

Santa Clause also visited 525 Realty Group recently at their new and temporary office space at 120 N Bryant Avenue!
