E Elyjah, L Live or die-- he had a choice to make, whether to let his situation will determine his purpose or not. 31 days in children's hospital led him to a mature mental state unheard of for his age. Y You may be thinking he's gone. However, J Jumping to conclusions usually doesn't produce a positive outcome. The A Aftermath of a brain abscess turned him into a beast on the inside and a cub on the outside, and became a part of who he was, and what he felt the need to preach through his own experiences. Most wouldn't understand nor agree with an idea that the H Holy Spirit was now inside him. N (k)nowledge...

As children, our imaginations were the key to our childhood. We were able to be anything we wanted to be--pirates, teachers, astronauts, a tree, anything we could think of, really. As adults, we tend to lose that imagination, and we are faced with reality--bills, raising our own children, addiction, marriage, jobs, the list is never ending. But, not Courtney.

Well, she gets to be a princess whenever her heart desires, or whenever a child's heart desires.   Courtney's business, Not Just Make...

I grew up watching Bob Ross and trying to recreate his scenes, but I was only 4 so all I had were watercolors.

The Hop has been around for 10 years. I had no idea. It all started with a group of merchants in Grandview who saw the success the Short North Gallery Hop had, and thought the model could be just as successful in Grandview. And, they were right. So, The Grandview Hop was created. I mean, there are so many delicious places to eat (I can't even choose a favorite…maybe Balboa at the moment), and shops from 1st to 5th avenues. Then, you have the Grandview Yard--that's an entire different area to discuss! Why wouldn't you create a space for everyone to explore Grandview?--While they shop, eat, and DRINK...

Sometimes you come in contact with someone, and you just know you're going to hit it off--which is exactly what happened with Jessica. I'm pretty sure it was her positive attitude and the fact that she is very passionate and proud of her business--Music Palette. After exchanging a few emails and finally reaching our phone interview, I found out I actually knew her through friends of my family. See, I knew I liked her! What's even better is her business. Behind every great business is a great owner. Jessica has literally put her love--and sweat--into this business. She's remodeled it--with a little bit of help from her brother Jason, who...
