Well, as we all get back into the groove of reality, after spending the week, up north in New Hampshire, celebrating the love and union of David and Kelly; we find the time to reflect on just how special these memories are to all of us. We flew to NH from Orlando, on a plane filled mostly with Strangers, and some dear loved family and friends, who spent their time and money to witness this union of these two special people in our lives. Jeff and I were so blessed to be a part of their special day, and to have the opportunity to meet, Kelly’s family and friends; whom welcomed us all with Open Arms. We started out with a insanely awesome Family lobster boil party campside with our entire family and the groomsmen (who are mainly family-just not by blood). Then us ladies, hit up the night life with Our Bachelorette, Kelly! the weekend continued with a little food, pool, and then a fun filled Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner, of lots of Wings and some amazing Blue Cheese Dressing! We walked the streets of downtown and of course couldn’t pass up the local fresh homemade ice cream parlor. The kids and adults truly enjoyed every bite. Wedding day for the family started out with some blueberry picking, calming words for the groom, and some laughs while dressing our handsome Groomsmen. The ceremony was sweet and memorable…from its start to finish. Watching the smiles and tears of joy was a memory that will be etched into our minds forever…Then a short drive to Stonewall farm for some dinner, toasts, and dancing….was too cute and tons of fun was had by all! We all let LOVE Sparkle with the Heart shaped sparklers as we send David & Kelly off on their amazing European Honeymoon! See you all both upon your return to the US as a happy and wedded couple! Hugs to you both, and we can’t wait to make and share many more memories together! Signing off for now, Celeste
It’s 9:27 on a Wednesday night. You’ve made it half way through the work week and your day is finally starting to slow down. Whether you’ve been busy making dinner, bathing kids, working late at the office, hitting the gym, or going over the last minute wedding plans, this is probably the first chance you have had to sit down and try to relax all day. We get it! Our family here at Flooring America is a typical family just like yours! Now that you’ve had a chance to finally unwind, wouldn’t you just love to learn a little bit more about the Carr clan?
Jeffrey Carr, owner and my soon-to-be-brother-in-law, has a beautiful wife, Celeste, who is our go-to-gal for anything and everything operation-related. She is the mother of three awesome kids–Gabriel, 8, Julian, who turns 3 in September, and Viviana (the only Carr girl in decades!) who just turned 8 months old.
David, my other half, and also an owner, is about to be my husband in exactly 11 days! We don’t have any kids yet, but we do have some pretty cool pups! Zoey is a Boston Terrier English Bulldog mix and Zailey is a Goldendoodle. Zoey is just about 6 years old and Zailey is still very much a puppy, just over a year old.
Then there’s me, Kelly. I am the newest member of this Florida Flooring Family, and in just a few short days, I will officially become a Carr clan member as well! I am so very excited to start this new chapter of my life and I am equally eager to embark on this blogging adventure!
Check back in often for tips & tricks, or just to get an update on the happenings of your Florida Flooring Family!
Summer 2014 bears good tidings of great joy. Let’s begin with the most obvious, it is summer time! Summer means warm weather, vacations, trips to the beach, barbeques, and so much more. In the midst of all these seasonal pleasures we enjoy each and every year, this summer brought with it something special that only comes around once every four years. To anyone reading this who has tuned into ESPN over the past month, you know the event of which I speak. To everyone else, I am talking about the World Cup.
When you take the time and actually think about it, the FIFA World Cup is an inspirational event. Players celebrate the opportunity to represent their respected country and potentially hoist the immaculate trophy. Fans, present at games and across the world, celebrate their heritage and their country’s earned spot in the tournament. The World Cup is one big celebration, and it is a beautiful one.
Here at Flooring America, we are fans of beauty, and like the Word Cup, we support diversity. That is why at Flooring America, you will find products of all different shapes, sizes, materials and colors. Flooring America offers a large selection of carpet, hardwood, laminate, ceramic tile, and vinyl flooring.
Our carpet products create a feeling of luxury and comfort in a room. Whether you want elegant formality or a casual space for your family to relax, there is a carpet that is just right for your home and lifestyle.
Hardwood lends character and charm to any room in your home, and best of all – it never goes out of style. Choose from our rich variety, including exotic as well as homegrown favorites for elegant or casual settings.
Laminate is one of the hottest trends in flooring today! Offering a wide variety of color and tone, it creates a great backdrop to your decorating scheme. Laminate flooring offers especially low maintenance and high durability. It’s perfect for families with children, pets, or busy lifestyles.
Ceramic tile is fashionable and practical with its natural look, beautiful designs, and durability. Ceramic tile is available in an infinite number of colors, sizes, shapes, and finishes, so there is no limit to the beautiful, personalized designs you can create.
Last but not least, vinyl. Ease of cleaning and durability make vinyl a top choice for wet and high-traffic areas including kitchens, bathrooms, recreation areas and other well-used rooms. In addition, vinyl is soft and warm underfoot. If you’re considering vinyl for your home, you’ll be happy to know there are now more choices of patterns and colors than ever before. Game on!
