    Team Gale and a Picture Perfect Golf Day!

    Written by Mary Beth Tice

    Last Friday was a picture perfect day in Brunswick County, and I should know, I spent a good chunk of it outside between driving all around the county, walking to lunch and looking out the office window in Southport. But I wasn't the only Team Galer out and about, our own Rene Hunter was out at the 23rd Annual Golf Tournament at Farmstead Golf Links. The event was put on by the Brunswick County Home Builders Association and Rene, along with fellow Sea Coaster Becky Faust, passed out food, water and little flags in honor of Fla...

    Home Organization

    Written by Mary Beth Tice

    I recently moved out of my two bedroom townhome apartment in Wilmington and into a two bedroom apartment in Little River with my boyfriend. I have lived on my own for ages except for a brief time when I moved back home with the folks. And I have a lot of stuff to show for it, I mean A LOT of stuff. After all, I used to rent a 3 bedroom home in Leland and had it fully decorated and the 1 car garage stocked with all my outdoor equipment, extra books and a deep freezer. But because I know I can’t fill the new place with only my stuff but the bf’s as wel...
