Oh, October!  How busy you are!  We are the height of all things cheerleading, school festivals, and fall fun.  My family loves the beginning of the holiday season.  Pumpkin everything?  Yes, please!  We're growing in full force.  DAP's doors are officially open after a 6-week delay thanks to Hurricane Irma and we survived our first Open House.  A few tweaks for to make for the future, but we are off and running on our #dappowered journey.


Bring it on, October!!


Inspired by Amy Hale (@amyhale) on Instagram, I fell in love with her monthly current posts.  Tweaked and adapted to fit me, I am excited to have a systematic way to track my growth.


Every month, I plan to answer the same questions and keep track of my walk in faith, motherhood and entrepreneurship.


Without further adieu, this is ALL ABOUT ME for the month of October 2017 ...
