The past few weeks have been crazy for us here in the Cree household. Lots of great things going on.

One in particular I wanted to highlight for you is that Gorgeous was recognized last week for her outstanding achievement as an Entrepreneur. The local Savannah organization, A Working Woman in Need (AWWIN), hosts an award gala every year to honor the top working women in the city.

Lisa & Chris CreeGorgeous was nominated and selected to receive the honor for their Entrepreneur category.

That meant that I had to go find a tux to rent. Haven’t done that since we were married years ago.

Our local paper even had a little write up about the awardees the next morning.

Add to that the press release that went out and you begin to see why I keep telling folks that I married up!
