Corporate Generosity

I just want to give a shout out to the South Point Casino in Las Vegas.  They are providing free rooms to a victim’s family for 2 nights.

So thankful my nephew will have family close while he is hospitalized (at this point for an undetermined amount of time) after the horrific event.

If you are ever in Las Vegas, show your support and stay at this very generous casino!

Blogger Recognition Award!

Thank you Melinda at PurpleSlobInRecovery for nominating us for this Blogger Recognition Award!



Here are the “Rules” for accepting this Award:

  1. I must thank the Blogger who nominated me and provide a link to their blog. Done!
  2. I must write a post to show the award.  Done!
  3. I must write a brief story on how my blog started.   We initially started blogging to let family know about our travels.  That blog (Our Adventures With Winnie) has morphed over the years and we’ve added Decluttering The Stuff to share our experiences in decluttering/minimizing/simplifying our lives.  Unfortunately, we don’t have the time to blog as frequently as we would like.
