• Editor’s Note

A

Learning Their Way mong quite a few eclectic and unheardof topics, September is touted as National Baby Safety Month and National Learning and Development Month. This month’s feature article intertwines both of these recognitions, so you’re in for an interestingly inspirational read featuring the very motivational Taneshia Kerr. With regards to National Learning and Development Month, the CDC lists a plethora of social and emotional, language/ communication, and movement/physical development milestones that most children reach by the age of five. What is most interesting about these milestones is that the majority of them occur naturally and/or by modeling behaviors that they have seen from other well-meaning people in their lives such as parents, guardians, mentors, peers, and, of course, their teachers. As schools make the decision to return to school be it in-person attempts, virtual, and/ or hybrid, there is so much to be considered. There are so many factors at play with the major one being COVID-19. Most parents and guardians want to err on the side of caution and exercise the virtual learning opportunity. Ignacio Estrada is credited with the quote: “If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.” Perhaps, we could stand to learn a thing, or two, or three from the kids. What is amazing is that many students naturally learn online because it has become an integral part of their world. If you don’t believe me, watch how quickly your call is ignored from a five-year old who has 1) learned your passcode, 2) searched YouTube, and 3) sat down to use your phone to watch their favorite YouTube Channel while 4) skipping the ads. Most of them have learned that on their own.

Life, Knowing Written By: Rena Speaks

The unknown essence of understanding what can’t be understood. The joy of what happens, the pain of what doesn’t, and the fear of what will. The fight of justice in harm’s purity. but life itself belongs not to the beholder of beauty, nor the hands of the individual, but to the mind of the creator. The essence of the joy in the fight of understanding, is not of the ownership of ones loyalty, but it belongs to the God that createdthe heart. Heart of words and silence beating wisdom to the mind of calamity, rushing blood to the veins of peace. Life is not to be understood, it is to be followed and trusted. Life itself is injustice to reality, but justice to the unorthodox spirit within. Only unorthodox to the path of society’s rule. Living is trusting that which gave you life. Understanding is knowing that there is an essence to not knowing life but living it. Life, Knowing.

You Can Work to Become a Better Investor

T

his month, we observe Labor Day, a holiday to honor all the hard-working people in this country. As one of them, keep in mind that your efforts can have positive results. Famed film producer Samuel Goldwyn once said: “The harder I work, the luckier I get.” And this same philosophy can apply to your investing, too – because you can indeed work to become a better investor. Consider these steps: • Work to understand your goals and risk tolerance. Selfknowledge is important in all phases of life – and it is certainly essential to you when you invest. For one thing, you need to know your goals. How long do you plan to work? What would you like to do when you retire? If you have children, do you expect to help pay for their college educations? You will also need to know your risk tolerance to help determine your investment choices. Investors with a high tolerance for risk typically can overlook the day-to-day fluctuations in the financial markets and may be comfortable investing more aggressively. But those with a low risk tolerance may be more inclined to focus on investments that offer greater preservation of principal, even if this means sacrificing some growth potential. • Work to learn all you can about your investments. Here is a bit of advice that will always be valid: Don’t invest in what you don’t understand. The more you know about your investments and what you can expect from them, the less likely that you will be surprised at their performance and their impact on your financial strategy. When you invest in stocks, you hope their value will appreciate over time, but you should not be shocked over short-term price

fluctuations. Conversely, when you purchase a fixed-rate vehicle, such as a Certificate of Deposit (CD), you expect regular interest payments and a return of your principal when the CD matures. But do not anticipate much, if any, growth in the value of your investment. • Work to develop good investment habits. Developing good habits often pays off. For example, if you exercise regularly, don’t smoke, and follow a sensible diet, you will likely help your longterm health. And you can follow good investment habits, too, such as contributing regularly to your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan. You will also want to avoid bad habits, such as overreacting to a sharp drop in the financial markets. In an effort to cut your losses, you might respond to this downturn by immediately selling investments whose fundamentals are still strong and whose prospects still may be positive. • Work to get the assistance you need. Investing can be complex, so you may want to work with a financial professional. But investing is just one part of your overall financial picture, so working with an attorney can help with your estate plans. And a tax professional can advise you on the taxrelated consequences of various financial moves. There aren’t many guarantees in the investment world – but the harder you work at becoming a good investor, the better your chances of reaching your ultimate objectives. ~A~ This article was written by Edward Jones and provided by Jonathan L.

• Health

TRY THIS NUTRITION BOOSTER FOR A HEALTHIER SNACK NUTRITION BOOSTERS are supplemental foods that add vitamins and minerals to your meals. NUTRITIONAL YEAST is an excellent example of a nutrition booster; just one sprinkle can turn an ordinary snack into a super healthy snack. WHAT IS IT? Nutritional yeast is deactivated yeast similar to brewer’s yeast. It is widely known for its vitamin B-12 content, which is added to the yeast. It contains about 133% B-12 content in 1.5 tablespoons. These little flakes are high in protein too; one ounce of nutritional yeast contains 14 grams of protein and 79 calories. Nutritional yeast is an excellent alternative to animal based protein. HOW TO USE IT? It has a cheesy, nutty and creamy flavor and is often used in place of cheese in vegan recipes. It can be added to freshly made popcorn, pastas, or used on top of salads and hot breads. It’s healthy and delicious. INSPIRE HEALTH TIP Corn is one of the most widely harvested genetically modified foods (GMO)- -a process that alters the natural chemistry of food. To avoid GMOs and their potential side effects, choose organic whole kernel popcorn seeds that you pop on the stove top. ~A~

A Phenomenal Okerrence

Written by Johnnerlyn Johnson Photography by Images by Stone

I

f perseverance had to be personified, there would be no better selection than Taneshia Kerr. Perhaps you’ve seen her on “The Steve Harvey Show” featured as a Super Mom… Maybe you have heard her preach... Perhaps you’ve read one of her books? Maybe you recognize her as being a recipient of last year’s Fayetteville’s 40 Under 40 Award, or perhaps you recognize her as the Greater Fayetteville Chambers’ Director of Membership Services... Each of these okerrences is important to her, but there is nothing of greater importance to Pastor Taneshia Kerr than Achsah and Ascher. They are her now six-year old micro-preemie twins, a daughter and a son respectively. Her daughter, who she describes as willful, is Achsah. Biblically, Achsah is one of two women in the Bible to get an inheritance from her father. It means crowning jewel. Ascher, who she describes as happy-go-lucky, has a name that Biblically refers to one of the sons of Rahab and Jacob. Taneshia is originally from Jamaica. She moved here in 2008 to complete her MBA. She was three classes away from obtaining her MBA when she decided to go into Pastoral Ministry. Taneshia pastored for five years in central California. During this time, she got married and had twins. Taneshia recalls, “I had three miscarriages before having them. With the last one, I almost died. I became unconscious in the hospital. They weren’t sure after that if I’d be able to have children.” After the doctor said she needed to deliver a healthy baby within one year, they tried again. “Soon after, we found out we were having twins. I was already a high-risk case from previous multiple miscarriages.” The oncologist, who worked with Taneshia throughout the pregnancy, knew at about 20 weeks that she would not make it to term. “Their goal was to get me to 24 weeks. I went into labor at 26 weeks,” remembers Taneshia. At birth, the babies were the size of palm of their parents’ hands. Even though they both cried and breathed on their own after delivery, they still only had an 8% chance of survival because of how small they were. After spending three months in NICU, experiencing four surgical procedures, and two spinal taps, Achsah and Ascher both came home before their actual due dates.

Taneshia says, “They came home July 10th and 20th. We had them in quarantine because their immune system was not fully developed. They couldn’t be around others at all especially around flu season. Their bones were fragile and susceptible to developing fractures.” If they ever had to bring the babies to the hospital, they were instructed to call the NICU prior to arrival because the twins’ bones were so soft, if something were to happen, it would look like the their bones had been shattered which could appear to resemble child abuse. We had this hanging over us for two years. They both had bad reflux. They’d regurgitate their milk in their sleep. I slept on the floor in between their cribs for months to listen to them throughout the night. As one can imagine, the proper rate of growth and development was and still remains paramount. Taneshia recalls working with specialists to monitor the twins’ development. “Preemie babies have phobias to rocks and grass, so we had to do a lot of play therapy. Specialists would bring in lots of textures for them to play with. Their care brought about a lot of consequences,” remembers Taneshia. It also came with a lion share of sacrifices. “I had to give up pastoring, and it cost me a lot. From the outside looking in, I looked like I was holding it together,” recalls Taneshia. Her experience with parenting and monitoring the babies’ growth and development is what led her to write her first book: Underqualified and Overwhelmed. “I didn’t know about babies. I didn’t have one before, so my experiences with the twins prompted me to launch my first book.” She has two versions of Underqualified and Overwhelmed. On June 1st, Taneshia released a pair of journals and started doing one-on-one counseling again. She shared, “I am a Licensed Christian Temperament Counselor. I also do a weekly class called Sacred Spaces where we discuss life issues and how to make space for stress recovery in the midst of all that’s going on.” Even in the wake of such unprecedented times such as COVID-19, Taneshia Kerr still finds time to think of others through giving. When the twins were in NICU, they received stuffed toys as gift, and they have grown so attached to them that they will not go to sleep without them. These two toys have become “security blankets” for


them. Because of that, Taneshia says, “I started an annual fundraiser four years ago to purchase at least 100 stuffed toys for the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office. The toys I buy are hypo-allergen treated and then sealed so the Deputies can drive around. “I’ve seen how important the twins’ stuffed toys have become for them, and I want any child facing trauma to have that security too,” says Taneshia. This is one of her ways of giving back to her community. September is National Learning and Development Month. To this is end, Taneshia seeks countless opportunities to ensure the that Achsah and Ascher are receiving optimal learning opportunities both abroad and certainly at home. “The twins are currently enrolled in a Spanish immersion program at William Owens. That’s deliberate on my part. Spanish Language immersion program is my way of stretching and challenging them.” Even the twins’ at-home play is purposeful and adventurous. “I promised when they were in NICU that they would not have to recover from their childhood. I don’t want them to be afraid. I explain to them the types of play that we engage in at home. They ask me questions, and we talk as if they are older than what they really are.” Language and communication experts will agree that clear, concise communication from parent to child is the zenith for children’s growth, learning, and development. As for the next steps for Pastor, Author, Speaker, Counselor, and Parent Taneshia Kerr, she says, “PreCOVID, I had planned to begin speaking again.” She can check that off her list. Also, she says, “I want to own a stress management facility. I can see it now… Off the road, a nice garden, a huge house… It will be called “The Enclave”. It will be a place to unplug from the rest of the world. “The Enclave” will feature: art therapy, teaching seminars, counseling sessions, and so much more.” Perhaps the next place you will see Taneshia is at “The Enclave” because she has already spoken this creation into existence through her powerfully prophetic words.

Staycations: Taking Advantage of Local Destinations Written by Keith Sykes Photos by Keith Sykes

C

OVID19 has truly put a damper on the plans of the average traveler. Normally, this is the time of year when many have taken advantage of the summer and are planning vacations for the fall, just before the weather starts to change. I should know, because it’s rare that a year goes by without me taking 3 or 4 trips, both local and abroad to enjoy different sights and cultures. I have to admit though, with the travel restrictions being put in place by the government, it has forced myself and travelers in general, to be creative with their plans. There are specific destinations that are prohibiting the travel of Americans, and some locations are placing so many requirements and restrictions on travelers that it is not worth traveling in many cases, especially outside of the United States. In an effort to encourage travel early on during the pandemic, and even now in some cases, many of the airlines have begun offering amazing deals. Hotels were also lowering prices to increase occupancy, but still that wasn’t enough to get some skeptics to travel. However, many of the diehard travelers still took the risks, masked up, and boarded the planes. I would be lying if I said I didn’t consider it, but the alternative

10

ARRAYNC.Com

was to research local destinations within a 5-hour distance, jump in the car, and make the best of it. There are definitely ways to maintain your sanity during the pandemic, while staying safe and still planning a trip or two within the state without boarding a plane. The state of North Carolina has so much to offer. In many cases, requiring just a short drive, depending on where you live. One of my favorite places to visit in the state is the city of Asheville. Asheville is a quaint mountain town: an outdoorsman’s retreat. It is impossible to truly put a label on the city due to the fact that it offers a smorgasbord of delights located in western North Carolina just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The city is tucked away among beautiful scenery, a vibrant arts scene intertwined with strong Southern traditions. One of the most popular attractions in the city is the Biltmore Estate. The Biltmore is a grand retreat in the North Carolina mountains created by George W. Vanderbilt in the 1890’s. The many state parks and forests are also attractions you will more than likely find at the top of most people’s lists who visit Asheville and the surrounding area. Being a nature lover in my own right, they’re usually #1 on my to-do list when I arrive. I had the opportunity to visit Asheville in mid-August for a weekend getaway,


and the trip was absolutely amazing. The weather was just about perfect, and my only complaint was that I experienced my very first earthquake on the morning I was set to return home to Fayetteville. While in Asheville, I got to visit the Pisgah National Forest, where I experienced Looking Glass Falls, Tom’s Creek Falls, Catawba Falls, and Moore Cove; DuPont

State Forest where I visited Triple Falls and Hooker Falls, and Montreat, (15 miles outside of Asheville) where I climbed to the top of Look Mountain with an elevation of 3760 ft. This was absolutely a trip for the books, and it wouldn’t have taken much to persuade me to extend my stay. One of the major pros of the trip was that every local establishment I visited had strict COVID

precautions in place. Masks were required, and social distancing was strongly encouraged. I can’t recall any of the places that were operating at full capacity. In every case, the tables were spaced in order to maintain a safe distance between patrons. It is not necessary to break the bank when searching for ideas for staycations. You don’t need a travel agent at all. Just pick up your phone and search places to see in North Carolina. You will be surprised of the possibilities that are practically in your back yard. So go ahead…explore. You can thank me later.

Wedding Budget Breakdown

W

Written by Stephanie Stewart

e all know the famous saying “Money can’t buy happiness” but it sure does play a part in planning one of the happiest days of your life! When you tally up all the expenses associated with planning a wedding the average national cost typically falls around $33K (average cost in NC is around $30K). For most working couples coming up with that type of cash isn’t an easy task! Add in the fact that nowadays most couples are footing the majority of the bill for their big day and you quickly see why determining (and sticking to) your budget early on in the wedding planning process is key! So what are the common cost you can expect when planning your wedding? While the answer is largely determined by your guest count, “must haves” and the type of wedding you are planning (elopement vs. sit-down dinner), there are certain expenses every couple should expect to factor into their overall wedding budget. Common Wedding Cost Venue – No matter what type of wedding you are planning, you are going to need a space to get hitched, host and entertain your guest. Whether you choose to elope in one of NC’s beautiful parks or reserve one of the wedding venues in the Fayetteville area, be sure to factor in the cost of renting the venue. Food & Drink – Along with the venue, Food and Drink will take up the majority of your wedding budget. For a sit down dinner, costs start at $50 per person and increase depending on the menu & alcohol options.

Officiant – Every couple will need an officiant to make it official. Depending on the type of officiant you choose, cost can range from a small donation up to $800 for customized ceremonies. Photo & Video – Hiring a professional wedding photo and video company to capture the special moments of your big day is a priority for most couples. Expect to spend an average of $2,500-$5,000 Entertainment – Whether you choose a band or DJ, if live entertainment is important to you be sure to budget in $1,000-$4,500 for this wedding cost. Tips on how to save on wedding cost Work Backwards – A great way to save and stay on budget is to figure out what you are willing to spend on your celebration before contacting vendors and plan from there. If your wedding budget is $10K for instance, figure out your “must haves” and dedicate the majority of your budget to those key items and look for deals (or DIY) the rest. Limit the Alcohol options – Providing an open bar can get pricey. If having alcohol at your wedding is important consider serving two signature drinks or just wine and beer to cut cost. Get Creative – Another way to save on your wedding budget is to consider less traditional alternatives. Perhaps an intimate elopement in the mountains or on the beach is the right choice, followed by a fun wedding picnic! If you missed it, be sure to check out the May edition of Array Magazine’s “Array of Wedding Info” where I shared info on the benefits of getting married in Cumberland County and a list of steps to take when planning your wedding. In the next edition, I’ll share info and tips on “Picking a Date & Theme” for your big day. ~A~ Stephanie Stewart Wedding Planner and officiant specializing in Elegant Events on a Shoestring Budget. www.shoestringelegance.com

hen I left Austin, TX to move to Fayetteville, NC, all I was focused on was being reunited with my husband who’s in the army and had been away for over nine months. Little did I know, I was in for a bit of a culture shock. Fayetteville, however, has been a pleasant surprise. Here are some exciting things I discovered since being here: 1.Downtown Fayetteville The small-town charm, beautiful old buildings, and so many locally-owned restaurants and shops are a delightful charm! Shop, drink, eat, and walk around the streets taking in the charms of the beautiful city.

5.The Carolina Accent The verdict is it’s going to take me some time to understand the Southern accent here. This means I am just going to have to get out there in the community and mingle with people more! I am so excited to discover more of Fayetteville and keep you updated on all the great things I come across! Stay tuned and until next time!

• Small Town NC

Photography by Stone Samuels, Images by Stone Welcome to "Small Town NC" - a monthly cinematic journey through our proud communities in North Carolina. To kick off this section, this month’s feature is Raeford, NC!

R

aeford, NC is tucked away among fragrant pine trees and majestic magnolias, as well as lovely azaleas. Raeford is proud of their deeprooted Southern hospitality offered by the entire county of Hoke. Raeford, NC is in central Hoke County (North Carolina’s 99th county), which is the county seat. Hoke County was formed from acreage from Cumberland and Robeson counties. It is conveniently located near Ft. Bragg, Fayetteville/Cumberland County, and Pinehurst/ Moore County. At one time, this area was primarily comprised of Highland Scot families during the 18th and 19th centuries and was believed to be the largest settlement of Gaelic-speaking Highland Scots in North America. Today many of these families remain in the area. Many Lumbee Indian families moved from Robeson County and are a significant part of the population now as well. Many newcomers in the area are a direct result of Ft. Bragg. John McRae and A. A Williford operated a turpentine distillery and general store in the 1800’s. They wanted a post office in the store for the local people and decided to take a syllable from each of their names and so the name of “Raeford” was given to the town. The Raeford Post Office was established in 1885 and has been in continuous operation since its inception. In 1898 Raeford was settled on the site of an old cotton field and initially contained 268,000 acres, with no paved roads. The economy was cotton. The Dr. A. P. Dickson family along with the J. W. McLauchlin and McRae family established a school. After a fire and a few moves, the school had an enrollment of 325 students in 1910. Raeford, which was chartered in 1901, was composed of mostly people who had moved to the community who wanted to provide a better education for their children. In 1918, the Little

River Township in the northern part of the county was separated from Hoke County by the Ft. Bragg Reservation, and in 1958, 20,000 acres of the township became part of Moore County. Rockfish Creek borders the town on the northeastern side flowing into the Cape Fear River, while Toneys Creek located in the southern part of the town flows to the Lumber River-Pee Dee River Waccamaw River watershed. As things changed and cotton was no longer the source of economic stability, industrial development came to the county. Unilever, Burlington Industries, Unify, Hoke Rubber Products, and Tar Heel Turkey Hatchery are just a few of the major industrial firms providing jobs in Hoke County. Raeford offers the best of a small-town friendly atmosphere and a superior quality of life, while having easy access to larger cities. Raeford is just two hours from the amazing Carolina beaches, and a four-hour drive to the Blue Ridge Mountains, with world-renowned golf courses nearby in Pinehurst, as well as other local golf courses. Raeford is also home to the satellite campus of Sandhills Community College known as the Hoke Center. There are historical sites, museums, farms, progressive health care centers, theaters, festivals, year-round mild climates, parks, affordable housing opportunities, football sports, minor league baseball opportunities, and friendly people. Raeford is located so that major cities such as Raleigh and Charlotte are an easy drive, with Fayetteville right up the interstate highway. Raeford is home to diversity while always embracing their history and Southern Charm. ~A~

A medida que continúan aumentando los casos de COVID19, muchas personas tienen miedo de salir al público. Pueden sentirse incómodos al estar en una habitación con muchas personas a su alrededor. Por lo tanto, la Asamblea General de Carolina del Norte ha facilitado la votación por correo. El nuevo sistema de voto por correo (también conocido como voto en ausencia). Votar por correo es seguro y ya se utiliza plenamente en varios estados de este país. No hay evidencia del fraude electoral a la escala de la que hablan algunos políticos. La Junta Estatal de Elecciones incluso emitió una declaración para desmantelar esta falsa narrativa. Puede encontrar su declaración aquí: shorturl. at/jxRW8

En actualidad no se necesita identificación para votar

Los Pasos para Votar por Correo son los Siguientes: 1) Solicite su formulario de votación en el sitio web de la Junta Electoral del Estado.

Imprimirás tres hojas: - La primera son las instrucciones - La segunda es la solicitud real - La tercera hoja le proporciona las direcciones de las 100 juntas electorales del condado en caso de que quiera enviarles su solicitud por correo. 2) Devuelva su solicitud a la Junta Electoral del Condado (asegúrese de que el documento esté completado correctamente) 3) Una vez que reciba su boleta, usted y un tesigo deben frimar su boleta.

Lo que Usted Debe Saber para Votar este Noviembre por Manuel Mejia Si no queremos que los políticos sigan ignorando a nuestra comunidad, tenemos que hacer ruido en estas próximas elecciones. Los latinos son uno de los grupos electorados de más rápido crecimiento y tenemos la capacidad de tener un impacto grande en la operación del gobierno estadunidense. La votación debe ser algo sencillo y accesible para todos. Sin embargo, con un mal liderazgo surgieron malas políticas que han desanimado a muchos a actuar y han creado confusión en toda la comunidad. Hay muchas cosas que suceden con antecedentes que pueden impedir que alguien vote. Una de esas cosas es la falta de conocimiento del proceso de registro. Los electores deben registrarse para votar a más tardar el 9 de octubre de 2020, si desean votar en persona el día de las elecciones. Pueden imprimir el formulario de registro de votantes del sitio web de la Junta Electoral del Estado y entregarlo una vez completado en la Junta Electoral del Condado de Cumberland. Deben colocar sus formularios completos en el buzón ubicado en la entrada principal del edi cio. Los electores también pueden registrarse para votar virtualmente yendo al sitio web del DMV y siguiendo la indicación. Deben tener una identi cación emitida por el DMV o una licencia de conducir para registrarse y votar virtualmente. Aquí también se aplica la misma fecha límite del 9 de octubre. Si esos dos métodos están fuera del alcance de las personas, siempre pueden comunicarse conmigo y puedo inscribirlo para votar por democracync.com Si usted esta procupado que no puede cumpler con la fecha límite de inscripción del 9 de octubre, yo recomiendo votar temprano, este método te permite registrarse y votar el mismo día. Si vota temprano, no tiene que preocuparse por ir al lugar correcto porque usted pueden votar en cualquiera de los sitios de votación anticipada. El período de votación anticipada es del 15 de octubre al 30 de octubre de 2020, y incluye sábados y domingos.

‘Gimme’ Five, Fayetteville! Escrito por Keyuri Perab

Cuando dejé Austin, TX para mudarme a Fayetteville, todo en lo que estaba enfocada era en reunirme con mi esposo y comenzar nuestra vida juntos en una nueva cuidad. Poco sabía yo que me esperaba un choque cultural cuando llegué. Sin embargo, ha sido una agradable sorpresa y aventura todo al mismo tiempo. Aquí les comentó algunas cosas interesantes que descubrí cuando llegue a esta cuidad: 1. Downtown Fayetteville ¡¡La belleza de este pueblo aunque pequeño es incomparable! Con sus hermosos edfcios antiguos, restaurantes y tiendas locales, Fayetteville tiene su propio encantando. Lo mejor es que todo su belleza está ubicado dentro de su 3 o 4 calles principales. Toma su tiempo encontrar las gemas locales escondidas por el downtown, pero vale realizar el esfuerzo para pasar un grato dia. 2. Southern Hospitality Mudarse a Carolina del Norte fue repentino y muy diferente a Austin, TX pero la hospitalidad y generosidad que he sentido de todos me ha hecho sentir mucho más a casa. Todos los dueños de negocios downtown son amigos o se conocen entre sí, y es tan emocionante ser parte de esta comunidad unida. 3. Cape Fear River Trial ¡Con COVID-19 y cumpliendo la cuarentena, me estaba sintiendo atrapada en mi casa, hasta que alguien me contó de este hermoso sendero dentro de la ciudad! Ahora, yo paso mis fnes de semanas realizando caminatas. Un paseo por el bosque y las fores que acompañan el camino me ayuda a relajar y reconectar con él mundo a mi alrededor. ¡Estoy muy entusiasmada por descubrir más de Fayetteville y mantenerlos actualizados sobre las cosas maravillosas que encuentro!

¡Estén atentos y hasta la próxima! 4. Fried Green Tomatoes Casi dondequiera que vaya, este alimento siempre está en el menú. Primero, no entendí porque este plato era tan popular para los sureños pero es ¡sorprendentemente delicioso! Ahora tengo un nuevo aperitivo favorito para acompañar mis bebidas y no me siento como una extranjera. 5. El Accento Carolino Me llevará algún tiempo comprender el acento sureño, pero hay algo encantador en la forma como la gente habla aquí. ¡El acento Carolino es único y no puedo esperar para salir a la comunidad y relacionarme más con mis nuevos amigos en Fayetteville después que COVID-19 pasé.

Shifting to Thrifting: Encontrando la Alegría en el Ahorro por Kaylin Warnock Compras de segunda, o lo amas o lo odias. No importa cuál sea tu postura, te ayudaré a hacer que la experiencia sea diez veces mejor. En enero, me desafé a mí mismo a dejar de comprar ropa de minoristas y gastar mi dinero solo en ropa de segunda durante un año. Lo llamo # allthrift2020. ¿Quién sabía que este sería el año perfecto para hacerlo? Con muchos de nosotros perdiendo nuestros trabajos o trabajando desde casa, ha cambiado drásticamente nuestras vidas, ingresos y gastos. Entonces, me gustaría compartir algunos consejos y trucos sobre las formas en que encuentro las últimas modas en las tiendas de segunda aquí en Fayetteville. Sé lo que algunos de ustedes piensan: “Pero, nunca puedo encontrar nada bueno”. Una vez pensé lo mismo; Pensé que era simplemente “mala” en el ahorro. He tenido el placer de vivir y la facilidad de ahorrar en San Francisco y Filadelfa, así que sé de primera mano que ahorrar aquí en una ciudad más pequeña puede ser un desafío. ¡Lo que me he dado cuenta es que hay una estrategia y debe ser divertido! Un poco de preparación de antemano es muy útil. Vas a querer obtener algo de inspiración. Antes de salir, eche un vistazo a su tablero de Pinterest “Outft Inspo”. Si no tienes uno, haz uno. Pinterest es fácil de usar y está lleno de ideas increíbles. Es tan simple como crear un nuevo tablero y poner cualquier atuendo que te guste. Puede ser tu estilo habitual o algo que te encantaría probar algún día. ¿Sabes ese estilo de chicas de Instagram que te gustaría tener? Desplácese por su página y guarde algunos conjuntos que le encantaría recrear. Por último, si sabes algo sobre moda, sabes que siempre se repite, lo que signifca que lo que estaba una vez de moda, siempre vuelve. Ver los últimos desfles te dará mucha inspiración y hará que tu creatividad fuya. Te prometo que verás algunos artículos en la tienda de segunda mano que están muy cerca de lo que viste mientras navegaste por la pasarela. Ok, entonces has hecho tu investigación. ¿Ahora que? Consejo n. ° 1: Asegúrese de estar de humor para comprar. Vaya un día en el que se sienta creativa o busque algo divertido que hacer. Eso solo ayuda mucho cuando los estantes parecen estar llenos de

un montón de artículos que se parecen al chaleco de suéter favorito de su abuela o las camisetas viejas de gimnasia de la gente. Lo sé, no todo es ostentación y glamour allí. Consejo # 2: Debe reservar una buena cantidad de tiempo para comprar. Nada loco, pero unos 45 minutos te darán mucho tiempo para revisar las rejillas pieza por pieza. Pista: ¡mirando cada artículo es como inevitablemente encuentras lo bueno! Consejo n.º 3: en una tienda en la que el precio suele ser siempre el correcto, es útil elegir lo que le interese y probarlo todo al nal. Quién sabe, algunos artículos se verán mucho mejor y otros se verán un poco más locos de lo que pensabas. ¡Todo está en la diversión! Consejo # 4: Entre con una mente abierta y no se desanime si no encuentra esa pieza WOW. ¡Lo bueno de las tiendas de segunda mano es que el producto cambia a diario! Si no es hoy, podría encontrarlo mañana, la próxima semana o el próximo mes. Ya sea que su razón para cambiar a la economía sea su presupuesto, su deseo de ayudar al medio ambiente o simplemente le encante un buen negocio, ¡ese es el camino a seguir! Estos consejos seguramente lo ayudarán a guiarlo a través de muchos viajes exitosos.
