A heartfelt Thanksgiving wish…

Gratitude means thanks and appreciation. Giving makes the world a better place. Whether it’s time, attention, money or just a sincere smile or thank you! There is joy in giving.  Having launched my startup Good AC Guy and Good Life Blog this year, I am full of gratitude for all the support I receive, and I appreciate the value of giving and collaborating more than ever! Thanksgiving is the perfect occasion to express gratitude.

Each year I partner with a charity (or two) and donate my time. This Tuesday night, November 29, at 6pm I will be hosting a  Wellness & Wisdom Expo with cast members from Bravo’s Below Deck (+ show viewing party), in hopes of generating funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis.

The mission to cure Cystic Fibrosis is near and dear to my heart. Eleven years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter, my obstetrician discovered I carry the recessive gene for Cystic Fibrosis. After a two-week waiting period (which felt like two years), my husband and I learned he did not carry the gene, so our daughter would not be afflicted with the disease. During that 2-week waiting period, however, I scoured the Internet and absorbed everything and anything I could about the disease. I had the briefest glimpse into the mindset of the parent of a child with Cystic Fibrosis. And now having met brave parents and children dealing with the disease as part of their daily lives, I feel an affinity and an obligation to help support these amazing kids and families––and to help find a cure.

If you live in Florida, I’d love for you to join us with Below Deck’s Celebrity Chef Ben Robinson and second stew, Emily Warburton-Adams Tuesday night! You can get tickets at Eventbright here.

We will be watching Below Deck together with cast members at 9pm  …and I will be on the show the final two episodes!! Yes! Crazy, but true ;). It was an opportunity of a lifetime being a charter guest in the BVI on a super yacht for a business retreat with five other women entrepreneurs (we call ourselves Good Life Gals ;).

Here’s a quick preview:

Please join all of us at the event on Tuesday! Or if you can’t, feel free to tune into the show… It’s sure to be entertaining!

If you are feeling extra giving, you can also make a donation to the local chapter of Cystic Fibrosis here.

Today is a wonderful day to enjoy our families and express gratitude for all of our blessings. My hope is that in some way Good AC Guy and Good Life Blog will help to simplify your life, allowing you to make time for those things that matter most.

Happy Thanksgiving from our home to yours!
