“Ashley started selling plants online to locals, but when COVID-19 happened and our kids started online learning, we started looking for a storefront. We were driving down Caroline Street one day and saw this building for rent! We were nervous though, we didn’t know if we wanted to move forward or not. As a family, that was never really in our plans to be business owners. She was the push behind it. She said, “We won’t know how this will be unless we try. Let’s go for it!”

“In high school I thought it would be so cool to have my own paddle board business with my own fleet of boards, but it seemed like a wild dream that was unreachable because it’s expensive and requires a lot of external factors. I had my own board when I was 18 and I was looking for another way to challenge myself physically and mentally with yoga, so I started doing some yoga poses out here on the Rappahannock River. I had seen a few people around the world doing SUP Yoga, so I thought I’d give it a shot and figured I could teach it. I started with some trial run students one summer and it went great! I started six years ago and this is my seventh season teaching it. Six years ago, no one in the area was really doing it and we all thought it was going to be a yoga fad. A lot of people gave it a shot and now they’re hooked!”

“I would like to acquire wealth not so I can live lavishly, but so I can pass it on to future generations. I want to be someone who can endow an institution or a charity. Right now as a school teacher, the most I can do is give a quarterly donation, but I want to be able to do something more substantial. I really love supporting small businesses because they offer services that you cannot get from mainstream corporate stores. I see small business owners as working people and I feel I have an obligation to support them. It’s why when the Fredericksburg farmer’s market opens, I go every Saturday because I know they’re working hard, they're trying to be self-sufficient, so I want to do my part to support them!”

Beginning today through Wednesday, May 19, FREDTransit will be fare-free to all community members.

#FXBGVA

FRED will be FARE FREE from Friday, May 14th – Wednesday, May 19th. Due to the current fuel shortage in the region, FRED will be fare-free for all community members during the temporary shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline to assist citizens with access to essential workplaces. FRED will support the public by providing access to transportation options that reduce vehicles on the road and decrease fuel utilization in the region. FRED’s goal is to operate fare free to reduce the impact of the fuel shortage on our region.

For route information, locations, and schedules please go to www.ridefred.com

For real-time bus arrival information, riders may download RouteShout on their mobile device.

05/13/2021

“I really wish people didn’t stigmatize mental health and just viewed it like going to your medical checkup. Nobody looks at you silly when you go in for your annual medical evaluation, but if somebody goes to therapy they think, “Why are you in therapy?” The mental and physical health are connected. There are certain mental health conditions that cause an increase in physical symptoms or physical symptoms that can affect our mental health.
Since May is Mental Health Awareness Month, I will share that therapy was very helpful for me. Any good therapist has done their own therapy. It gives you a space to talk with somebody that doesn’t have an agenda. Being able to provide a safe space for people is really important to me.”
