Happy Friday, Hoos! 🐶

To old friends and new, from home and across the blue,🌍
This is a love letter to each and every one of you. 💌 •
From first year to fourth, we met somewhere along the way.1️⃣⏩4️⃣
And together we laughed, cried, and sang every night and day.🤣😢🗣 •
From gazing under stars to late nights at bars,🌌
From streaking the Lawn to talking til dawn,🌅
From sailing through seas to achieving our dreams,🛳
Each memory I own is something we together have grown.🌱 •
Some of you are crazy and wild, and always able to make me smile.🎭
Others are kind and sweet, even better than honey I eat.🍯
But all of you, no matter who, 👳🏽‍♂️👩🏼👨🏾‍⚕️
Have made me, me, that much is true.🙋🏻‍♂️ •
Your support has been undying through times, both good and trying.💪🏼
And it is because of you that I have somehow made it through.👨🏻‍🎓 •
And as we get ready to part ways, it is a blue and gloomy occasion.👋🏼
But we’ve made it this far, we should be filled with great elation!🤩 •
Wherever we are in the world, I know our paths will cross again,🛤
And we will live our lives to our utmost every day until then.🏝🏔📝

Thank you UVA.  I never wanted to go to UVa but it is exactly where God wanted me to be so I followed his plan. God knows I am not the same girl that I was when I entered grounds 4 years ago. If I could go back I wouldn’t change a thing. I have worn the honors of honor, I graduated from THE University of Virginia.

Happy Birthday to David Lacks, male vocalist for Big Ray and the Kool Kats. He's in his 17th year with us and just kills it every single night. I hope we do another 17 years together! (I'll be old, he'll still be killing it!). Stunningly good singer and entertainer and an even better human being.

Closing day at 1808 Brenda Ct which has the most park like back yard. I was able to procure 7 offers in 48 hours on the market getting the seller 8% above asking price with his choice of closing date. Not to mention we sold it for $60k+ more than I helped him buy it 3 years ago. #tootingmyownhorn #satisfiedcustomer #brushyashouldersoff #charlottesville #backyardgoals #realtoring

The man behind Leo Music is Christopher Barry, who resides in Charlottesville, VA. Originally from Norfolk, VA, Christopher attended University of Virginia where he founded the band “Big Red Engine”. The band was popular during the early 1990’s in Central Virginia, where they were a favorite at fraternity parties and clubs. After nearly 25 years away from the music scene, he was so moved by his newfound love for his girlfriend that he picked his guitars back up and was inspired to write her an original song titled “August 4th” as a profession of his love for her. That was his first single released under his artist name of Leo Music in April of 2019. He recruited a female singer from Los Angeles (Sydney Clare) to sing lead on August 4th. Christopher sings backing vocals and plays guitars and other instruments on this track. The song has been on 4 different Spotify playlists. Other songs Christopher releases under Leo Music include various vocalists for his original music depending on who transmits the intended energy best... He has found that his best friend, Gene Carr, has a distinctive soulful vocal style, and many of his recent songs feature him as vocalist. #musician #music #spotify #spotifyplaylist #youtube #applemusic #inspiration  Go Stream New Song “Fly Away” on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and many more!

My parents recently re-did my childhood bedroom to become Eisley's room/playroom. It has the same ceiling that my dad hand-painted the year I was born with a beautiful blue sky and puffy clouds. Sure, it's totally 80's, but it's incredibly nostalgic and the perfect touch of whimsy for a child's room.⠀
⠀
Along with the change meant cleaning out my childhood bedroom which was hilarious in itself. It was funny seeing how nostalgic I was even as a kid. Boxes and boxes of greeting cards from those I love dearly and even more boxes of countless prints.⠀
⠀
You see, photos are that one thing I don't mind having "too much" of, because I don't think you can have too many photos. And holding them in your hands is a treasure you simply can't replace.⠀
⠀
They take you back. They help you remember how you were, how you felt and where you came from. ⠀
⠀
Your stories deserve heirlooms, and so does your family.⠀
⠀
And that my friends, is the driving force behind how I serve each and every one of you. I want you to savor this season you're in with photos you adore and that feel so incredibly true to you...not just posed and perfect. Because the truth is, in 15, 30, 50 years, you're going to adore those photos that feel genuine, warm and true. And you'll enjoy them that much more when they are in your hands and not just on a screen.
