What makes your home yours?
My home is full of our collections of books, vintage games, ancient Chinese checkerboards and cool old gumball machines. One of my favorite pieces of furniture is an antique Chinese trousseau cabinet we picked up when we lived in Hong Kong. The merchant explained that the bride’s family would pack her personal items and collected home furnishings in this cabinet and her brothers would carry it to the happy couple’s new home. We use it as a bar cabinet storing glassware and booze…perhaps my own personal trousseau?
Enjoy November and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
From last month…
We should have introduced the athlete in our story about Buckhead Fight Club. Meet 21 year old Deonte Brown, trained by retired world champion and women’s boxing hall of fame inductee Terri Moss at Buckhead Fight Club. On July 1 Deonte won his pro debut with a unanimous decision over Stephon McIntyre, a fighter with veteran experience.Deonte brings the excitement of athleticism, slick boxing style and southpaw stance to the ring which combine to create trouble for his opponents. After an amateur career that included Georgia Golden Gloves and Title World Championship wins, Deonte is focused on his professional career. He devotes 6 days a week to training, at least four hours a day. Training includes bag work, mitts, circuit training, and calisthenics every day. Away from the gym, Deonte is a family man, enjoying time with his son and daughter, reading in the library and spending time with his friends.
