Happy New Year With Theresa Ahdieh

Happy New Year!

New Beginnings!  Have you chosen your word of the Year?  Mine is Congruency = The Harmony & Consistency in Business & Life.

Bring on 2024

Bunch of fantastic events happening in the next couple of months.

First:  Next Saturday January 13th from 2pm – 4pm I will be hosting an Economic Forecast Presentation by my friend Kyle Bergquist at my favorite hang out Green Lake Strength & Conditioning.  This is a Free Event, but for space and materials I need people to sign up on EventBrite.  I will have Kyle’s presentation printed out in a packet for every participant.  If you have never been to GLSC or seen Kyle present – He takes the boring numbers, stats, nitty gritty financial information and presents it in a fun, digestible manner.  Green Lake Strength & Conditioning is a great open space with all windows.  We will be sitting on workout benches, wooden boxes, foam rollers, or bring your own lawn chair.  It is going to be fun & casual.  Water & Popcorn will be provided  (maybe some chocolate too).  Hope to see you there!

Second:  February 10th is Chinese New Year!  It will be the Year of the Dragon.
12 years ago I was in Beijing celebrating my first ever Chinese New Year.  Q, Monique, Ty and I went with our new friends Nick, Cindy & their son Darwin to Nicks friend Kemin’s Grandmas home.  She was the widow of Chairman Mao’s Head Music Composer.  We made dumplings, and used her nut cracker that she saved/hid from Mao’s attempt to be the #1 Steal Producer in the World.  What a great memory for me.

Third:  Did you know that 2024 is Leap Year!  Yep – February will have 29 days!  Here is a fun fact:

People born on Leap Day are called ‘Leaplings’

There are only about 5 million people in the whole world who were born on February 29, with the odds of being born on Leap Day standing at about 1-in-1,461. Several famous people—including actress and singer Dinah Shore (born 1916), motivational speaker Tony Robbins (born 1960) and hip-hop artist Ja Rule (born 1976)—are leaplings. Leaplings technically only get to celebrate their birthdays once every four years, but they do get to be part of an elite group.  You can read the entire article below – its kinda cool!

Have I told you that I love being a Realtor?  I love helping you, your friends and family find your Real Estate dreams. But – another great facet of looking at homes is finding “forgotten treasures”.  See below for a collage of photos of a section of the Seattle PI from July 1988.  Great Memories, Bon Marche ads, and check out the travel prices & deals!

Hope to see as many of you next Saturday!  it is  going to be worth the time and energy!

With Love & Gratitude
