Highlight of the day…fashion show and PIE

Ah yes, the world of insurance.  Today, I rushed to finish up paperwork for the monthly audit I’m going through tomorrow.  (As an aside, why is it that I always put this off until the last possible second?  Anyway…).  Because of this, I was inside the office for the most part until around lunchtime.  At 1:00pm I headed over to…..

The BEST Chocolate pie on the planet

 

Jealous much?

 

Pie, of the chocolate variety, with Doug and Joe was on tap.  Seriously, it’s the best pie money can buy.  ***Not better than my wife’s coconut cream pie though…sweetie I love you!***  Have you ever been to Monument?  Of course you have.  If you haven’t been in a while you need to head back over.  They have a great beer garden now and a farmer’s market…both excellent…so check them out!  Aside from the fact that I think the other patrons were offended by my eating the pie with my fingers…I think it was a very lively and joyous crowd in there.

After Pie, I headed back to the office and had a 30 minute conversation/meeting with Bentley Martin.  Bentley and I discussed insurance, work, business, our faith, and politics.  Not bad for a 30 minute meeting huh??  That is pretty much on par for us.  If you don’t know Bentley…he is a great guy.   I call him the Grand Pooba of Cottonwood Shores.  Why?  Well..ask him!

I decided, around 4:15, to take a stroll around the square.  Here is what I saw:

 

Back to the Future??

Go shopping on the square NOW!

 

It's 5 o'clock somewhere!

 

Our square is such a neat place…isn’t it?

 

So, anyway, the square was nice today…not too busy, but the weather was great and everyone was busy going about business.  There were a few pic-nic-ing couples on the lawn of the courthouse this afternoon even!

After work, I got on the bike and headed home.  Guess what I got???  My girls put on a fashion show for us.  I realize that this kind of thing won’t be happening forever.  I know that the times they allow me to dance with them…sing with them…read with them…will eventually give way to other things as they get older.  I am so blessed to be able to share in experiences like that.  Absolutely perfect.

On the business front, today was a successful day.  I quoted and helped a family switch from Farmers Insurance over to us.  We saved them a ton of money AND increased their coverages dramatically.  That was both exciting and scary all at once.  Exciting that I made some new friends today.  Exciting that I was able to help them as much as I did.  Scary that people still sell minimum coverages to those who need MUCH more.  My work was done!  🙂

Tomorrow should be a very full day.  Networking, quoting, walking around the square.  Just a normal day around here I suppose.  Oh, while you are at it, go see our friends at Georgetown, TX Fun and Events on Facebook.  They are a great resource for events and fun happenings on the Historic Georgetown Square.
