Small Business Spotlight – Sonder Mind & Body

If you’re like me, you probably spend a lot of time connected to technology.   We work on our devices daily, sleep with them next to us, take them to the bathroom with us, and rarely have them out of sight.   Most of us realize this pattern isn’t healthy, but find it difficult to completely disengage from the devices that keep us organized, connected, and oftentimes stressed.  While I don’t have the solution to our “always on” societal demands, I was able to enjoy a new and relaxing experience this week that I hope many of you will be able to try as well.

Small Business Spotlight – The Cycle Loft Greensboro

Small Business Spotlight – Wine And Design Greensboro – The Perfect Creative Night Out

This week my husband and I were thrilled to be able to try a class at Wine & Design Greensboro.    We are always looking for fun new activities for date nights, and after a hectic workday, it seemed like the perfect way to unwind and express our creativity.
