It’s April and our little team has a temporary office space! We are now in the opposite situation from last month. As I wrote the letter for the March issue, I explained that we were all working out of our living room, and it was a tight fit. Now, we have way too much space. And the funny thing is, as big as the space is, we all moved our desks to one spot in the front. There are only five of us that come in everyday, but we work closely as a team. It’s a very good beginning & I’m forever grateful for our group!
This month we have a special guest writer, Janina Freeland. You may remember her from last year’s issue when we talked to families with kids with autism. We’re happy to have Janina tell us in her own voice, what it’s like to be a parent of a child with autism. She’s both brutally honest and hilarious as she talks about her life. We also visit Noah’s Ark, a community built to empower people with special needs to live independently. John Straughn talks about his son Tyler and the big fundraiser, Rockin’ on the River. Each of their stories are inspiring and hopeful.
We talk with Jennifer Smurr of Born & Bread. She recently celebrated their fourth anniversary with a big party. We sit down and talk with her about the beginning of B + B as well as the future. We also take a mini-vacay at Cypress Inlet in Winter Haven. Recently remodeled, it will give you a taste of “old Florida.”
We have new email addresses now, please take note! And then you can send us a note, or two! There are tons of events happening this month, remember to add #lkldhaven to your Facebook or Instagram post and you might find yourself in the next issue of LKLD! (Just type it in where you write your posts, it’s easy!)
Until May, have a very beautiful April!
