Mondays with Marnie | Let The Family Drama Begin...


Mondays with Marnie | Let The Family Drama Begin...


As we begin Thanksgiving week, it’s not too early to begin thinking about what we will say on Thanksgiving day as we go around the table and say what each person is thankful to have in their life. Health and family are probably the top two. They are almost like the cheater version of an answer. 

I invite you to think beyond the obvious. Maybe even consider how something unpleasant ended up being something you are thankful for. 

I remember when I decided to close my stores, Marnie Rocks. I knew it was the right thing to do, but it sure felt crappy. Today, I am thankful that Marnie Rocks closed and that I began my career in Real Estate. The blessings and opportunities I have been given along my 11 years in real estate are too many to count. 

Raising four kids is also a challenge, a thankless job and an ass kicking, but I am thankful for the opportunity to be a mother. What an honor and responsibility! 

Here is a little list of a few things that I am thankful for:

1. My Kids

2. My career

3. Family

4. Laughter

5. Success

6. Knowing when to walk away

7. Knowing when to hang in there and stay

8. The ability to forgive

9. Empathy

10. Margaritas

I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful that you take the time to read my newsletter and that I am lucky enough to know you. If you find yourself alone or your family kinda sucks, you are 100% welcome to join me and my family at our house. 

For real. I mean that. Message me. I’ll even come pick you up!

Tired of the same old desserts every year? Consider trying a new recipe from this list of 25 Best Thanksgiving desserts. I’m deciding between the Caramel Pecan Cheesecake Bars and Pumpkin Pie Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze! 


… preparing a rental property as an AirBnB to be ready for the holidays! What are some of your favorite amenities you’ve enjoyed at homestays? Obviously wifi and a Nespresso are musts!
