10-4 Good Buddy
If we’re friends, you know I’m excited about this.
(**If we’re not friends, we probably should be… I’m delightful.**)
10-4-19 -October 4th- is National Taco Day! The fact that it takes place on a Friday and not a Tuesday is a travesty, but it’s better than no National Taco Day at all, so I’ll take it!
I look forward to Taco Tuesday all week! Fortunately, Tuesday is the second day, so I don’t have to wait long and, although we occasionally succumb to the Americanized, ground-beef-with-Old-El-Paso version of “tacos,” sometimes, the taco experience is seriously amazing.
My always-encouraging friend, Valerie, dragged me to this hole-in-the-wall place in Nashville, where I had authentic street tacos for the first time. I tried Elote, too! (Hard to go wrong with corn on the cob, in any form or fashion.)
I stumbled onto an awesome taco place in Asheville, NC, called Taco Temple, where I picked a couple tacos to try and then went back and ordered some for the road! They were so, so good.
Legend has it, there’s an amazing taco truck that sets up shop near the traffic circle at Northshore & North Campbell Station. I’ve never seen it, but it’s on my To Do list!
I’ll be the first to admit, I’m no purist.
I tried fried chicken tacos with slaw, in Greenville, SC, with my brilliant friend, Sunny, and I’ll not deny having picked up a party pack in the Taco Bell drive through, too! Any port in a storm, folks!
At this point, you might be asking, “What’s all this taco nonsense got to do with Real Estate?”
My adventures in taco tasting are connected to people or events I’ve met through this amazing real estate industry. I’ve traveled and connected and learned and taught. I’ve offered support and been supported by some of the most incredible real estate professionals in the world and, in doing so, have built up an extensive network of professionals that I can trust with my friends and family.
As a matter of fact, Taco Tuesday became popular at our house, thanks to my friend, Claire, and her relocation to the Atlanta area. She was selling a house in SC and flying blind, trying to buy one in GA. Imagine making not one, but two major life decisions and relying on complete strangers to guide you through! I was so glad when she called and asked if I could help and she’ll tell you how much smoother the sailing became, once she had someone in her corner.
I realize that you, my friend, may not be buying or selling a house anytime soon but, if someone you know is thinking about making a move -whether they’re ready to get packing, or just have some questions- I’d love to get them pointed in the right direction. Decisions this big can’t be left to a Google search and keeping your fingers crossed. Los Angeles to New York and Bozeman to New Orleans, I’ll gladly get your loved one connected with knowledgeable professionals.
Now, with that bit of business covered, you can relax. My friend, Addie, who is an amazing broker in Florida, sent me a decorative flag that says: “Live every day like it’s Taco Tuesday.”
I think she might be on to something. Let us know how -and where!- you’re celebrating on 10-4-19!
