Welcome to MIDWEEK with MIDTOWN: Episode 10!
We have a fun way for your family to enjoy Holiday dinner time around your dinner table this year!
Here is what you'll need to do:
Have everyone in your family find a picture that they have a great memory from. But here's the catch. Try to find one that is in a picture frame. It's easy to grab your phone and scroll through pictures. But somehow the nostalgia of a framed memory from one you walk past in the hall, on a desk, or anywhere else in your home carries a special meaning.
A picture in a frame had special care given to it. It was selected out of many to stand out in your home. It serves as a reminder of who you are as a family, and marks time spent together along the journey of life. When your friends and extended family visit your home they see those moments, and get a glimpse into the life you have created together.
Life goes by fast. This fun, simple activity as a family will help you slow down to soak it in a bit better. To remember. To laugh. To cry. To laugh so hard that you cry. And maybe if you laugh hard enough sharing stories, you can get someone to spit their milk out their nose. Oh my!
Enjoy your trip down memory lane. Walk through your home slowly as you pick out your picture and take in all of the moments in all of the frames. On the walls, down the halls, on the tables, bookcases, and everywhere else.
This holiday season, our hope for you and your family is that your home will be filled with laughter as you share stories with one another.
Thank you for choosing our family at Midtown Realty Company.
It's an honor to know you and your family, and call you all friends.
And don't worry...if we haven't met yet?
2018 is a great time to start a new relationship and meet new people!
From our family to yours,
Welcome to a very special edition of MIDWEEK with MIDTOWN!
Our normal routine here in our blog is to talk about exciting new listings, home buying, home selling, and home decorating tips. Our hope is that you find your stop here each week full of the real estate answers you've been searching for.
Today we want to put a twist on the routine that is on our heart.
Our wish for you today:
List your home...
Join us in listing it among the many things we can be thankful for.
Join us in listing your home as a reminder on your heart that we are all so very, very lucky to live in the communities that we do.
We'll be thinking of you today.
You are our friends.
As you go about your Thanksgiving holiday, may it be full of laughter and joy-filled memories.
-From all of us at Midtown Realty Company!
Episode 3 of "Midweek With Midtown" is focused on a few ways that you can decorate your home for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
We know that HGTV, Better Homes & Gardens, and so many other outlets have AMAZING displays of holiday decor. We also know that the look they create can feel like you need an entire crew to pull it off for your home. We have 3 super easy ways you can bring a cute holiday display to life in your home all on your own. You might even find your family wants to jump in and create these ideas with you as a family night activity!
Enter Midweek With Midtown: Episode 3.
Simple. Warm. Inviting.
Here are 3 ways you can make your home become just that for Thanksgiving.
Simple. Warm. Inviting.
Pumpkins. Apples & Greenery. Craft Paper.
Enjoy your holiday preparation!
Slow down, and be present each step of the way...
That, after all, is the joy in the holiday.
Join us on facebook HERE, and post pictures of your creations. Our team at Midtown Realty Company would LOVE to see them!
A family that spends time together, grows closer. One of the ways that brings people together is rolling up sleeves, and serving alongside one another.
Go somewhere as a family, giving your time to an organization that needs it.
As the first week of January fades away already, before we know it New Years resolutions may get pushed to the back burner in the hurriedness of life. When we make the intentional effort to serve others, as a family, it begins to create a home that isn't just happy for the holidays...but all year long.
Talk about it at dinner tonight.
Get feedback from your kids about where they would like to serve.
Together...change the very fabric of your family's life, and in turn someone else's life that needs your hands and feet to be there for them in a tough season of theirs.
We live in a fantastic community!
What makes that possible?
That got us to thinking today...what might it look like to see life through someone else's viewpoint? Doing so can strengthen the fiber of each relationship that makes up this wonderful place we all call home. Sounds like fun to us!
Spend time doing one thing someone loves…together, that doesn’t interest you.
At the very least, you are investing in relationship. And who knows, the very thing you thought couldn't possibly interest you, might just end up capturing your attention too!
When our relationships are healthier, our community is stronger.
That...that is a simple way to strengthen a community.
Take the walk to understand someone else, and you'll find the treasure of relationship.
A solid start to the new year for all of us would look something like this...
Solve a problem in our community. Do what we can, with what we, have where we are.
New Year's resolutions can feel overwhleming when they are too big, or too vague.
With 2017 here, let's see what we can do about that, by doing something right from the start. Everyone has different skills, talents, and resources. The one thing we all share in common is our individuality. Putting that to work in an area where someone needs our help, solves a problem. Think about a way this week that you can solve a problem with what you have, where you are.
We'll be doing the same.
It's a ton of fun to be part of this community. So many great people, with huge hearts.
Thanks for stopping by today. We hope you've had a GREAT start to 2017!
We are thankful.
From our team at Midtown Realty Company, we want to wish you, your family, & your friends all the best in 2017.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
What better way to enter the new year, than going on a treasure hunt! What are we looking for? Something most of us have, and many others need. Clothes and toys.
Another great way to make it a happy home for the holidays is to do this...
Simplify your world.
Donate gently used clothes/toys & talk about why you are doing it as a family.
When our kids understand the many blessings we have, and get excited about bringing that same opportunity to others, we've created such a wonderful world for everyone!
With a little over 24 hours to go until we all ring in 2017, let's make 2016 end on a high note, and look for these items to donate. And if you can, do it anonymously. Why? It teaches our kids that leading the way isn't about notoriety, it's about being grateful for what we have through humility.
As 2016 comes to a close, it's always good to pause and think about what you are most thankful for. Even better than what we are most thankful for, is who. Even better than thinking it, is saying it.
So, today's idea is to do both.
Speak. Tell each other one thing about your family that means the most to you.
We were blessed at Midtown Realty to be loved, cared for, and led by a tremendous woman. Bonnie was a Great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, sister, aunt, daughter and friend. Her gentle smile and reassuring words were a gift to all she knew. Though her travels now are on streets of gold, her legacy guides us each day through.
And to honor her legacy, what better way than for all of us to tell our families one thing about them, that means the most to us.
That will go a long way to creating a happy home for the holidays.
The holidays can be full of joy.
They can also be a very stressful time for those who are struggling.
Today's idea is for all of us to look around, and see if we can be the blessing to someone else's struggle. It's very possible that there is something we want, that we could really do without. We have a little extra cash we could use to meet a need for a family. Maybe they need new brakes or tires for their car. Maybe they need someone to drop off a bag full of groceries. Or we have extra vacation time, so we were just going to curl up and watch movies all day, when we could be helping an elderly neighbor with a project.
Imagine what the holidays would look like if we were to sacrifice a want, and donate those resources to someone in need.
If we could spend the rest of this week looking for these opportunities, we could truly make someone else's home a happy home for the holidays!
