Fall at a glance...

Don’t you just love fall? It’s so nice to be outside and go to pumpkin patches, sports games, and fun fall city events! The city of Louisville offers so many activities so today I wanted to compile a “Fall at a glance” calendar so you can plan on what fall events you want to attend this year.

Making the most out of Gameday!

Well, it’s official folks! It’s football season! Cue the hunting down of tickets, the transitioning weather, and the empty tailgate lots. We all know that Gamedays in the South are no joke and always lead to many celebrations on the weekend. Gamedays may look super different this year due to Covid-19, but that doesn’t mean they still can’t be fun! Just like all of us are learning to do, we are adjusting to make the most out of this “new normal”. Below you will find a list of ideas of safe activities along with some gameday themed food recipes! Whether you are going to the game or watching at home, you can still have a great time this season. The weather is cooling off, we are finally getting used to this school year, and it is just nice to finally get to watch some sports! 


At-home tailgate- It is very possible to follow the CDC guidelines and have a pre-game celebration! Put some hot dogs and burgers on the grill and just hang with the family this year! Even if you invite the neighbors or some friends over, you can hang out outside and be socially distant. It would be fun to buy an outdoor projector (a lot of them under $100 dollars) and hang up a white sheet or find a blank area to stream the game outside! 

Zoom game watch party- If you are used to normally watching the games with a big group of people, consider having someone share their screen on zoom, teams, or whatever video conference site you are familiar with to watch the game together! Everyone can still be “together” from the comfort of their own home. You can still fill the void of your social outing experience!

Things to consider as a first time mover!

Moving, especially in these times, can seem like a hassle and a headache! But, it doesn’t have to be! When finding your dream home, there are many steps you can take to make the moving process as smooth as possible. There are many different ways to go about buying and selling your home but today we are going to discuss the moving process specifically and ways to facilitate and organize the process! 


Before move:

There are many things that need to be done before the move besides just packing up some boxes. If you are moving to a new city you have to allow yourself time to become familiar to your community and with the city’s housing market. Remember to pre-plan all your traveling arrangements: flights, hotels, etc. in advance so it is not a stresser on actual moving day. Even if you are staying in your same town remember to research if you are in a new school district and what options you have. 

Moving is certainly not a cheap process and selling any furniture or items from your old home you no longer need could go towards moving costs. Plus, decluttering before a move saves you time packing and will make it easier to organize your new home. This includes using up refrigerated /freezer items if you don’t plan on taking them with you! If you know you have items you are keeping that won’t have a spot in your new place, go on ahead and reserve a storage unit so those items are out of the way come moving day. 

Making a budget will be tremendously helpful to keep a running tab of how much is spent over the course of a move. Depending on your flexibility you may want to consider hiring and scheduling movers or reaching out to family and friends to help. Make sure to...
