Saturday Freedom!

What a crazy couple of week it has been, I've finally started blogging again and it feels good. Taking pictures and crafting is one of my favorite things to do! Here is what I've been up to in the past few days!

 Taking pictures for an upcoming blog post!

Attended a Firepit with friends from my Unitarian Congregation

 Took an early morning swim and was able to observe the beautiful flowering plants all around the pool.

Made cupcake soap that smells like Turkish Mocha!

*The insert gave a couple of really great points that I wanted to share with you:

1. Get the same services at lower cost
National data shows small financial institutions offer the same variety of services at a lower cost and on average offer better interest rates and better terms on loans.

2. Your money supports the local economy
Small and midsized banks account for more than half of all business lending. By using a local financial institution you are supporting our local businesses who create a majority of new jobs.

3. Keep decision-making local
Local banks and credit unions make loan approvals based on face-to-face relationships and an understanding of local needs. This often leads to loans that big banks would reject.

4. Local institutions share a commitment to our community
The more a community prospers the more local banks and credit unions prosper making local institutions intimately tied to the well being of our place.

5. Support productive investment
The primary activity of most small banks and credit unions is to turn deposits into loans and other productive investment within the community. Big bank resources are generally used to generate profits for the institution.

Exercise your freedom to choose!
