335 Steller Road, Jacksonville, NC 28540

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.  One stop light from the Air Station, two stop lights to the beach and MARSOC and the back gate.  New carpet, new paint!  Fridge, great storage shed and play yard/swing set convey.  Fenced back yard.  Covered deck the entire back of the home to enjoy the yard that backs to trees.  Move in ready!  Vaulted ceiling in the family room, kitchen and dining areas.  Two closets in the master, one a walk in!  Check it out!

I break my own legs.


I thoughtfully included a moment of Schadenfreude for you rather than a pic of myself. . .no exciting cast, just a lovely stress fracture(s) to boast from my running.  I am enjoying a diet with a side of ibuprofen and calcium pills and a shot of milk here and there.  I have a few blogger pals on here who are anti-facebook so I thought I’d make an effort to explain (make excuses as two said) for not updating my run log for a bit.

In short, a public mea culpa.  You’re smart, I”m dumb.  You’re very good looking and athletically superior and I’m great at watching hulu.com.  So, turns out, after decades of dance and ballet, amping up a running program to prep for a marathon-I COULD have heeded some well “heeled” advice.

Stretching isn’t just a suggestion, it’s imperative–all the time, seriously.  Old rehab tricks like writing the alphabet in the air with your toes never goes out of style even if you aren’t planning on whipping out some fouette turns on the dance floor this weekend.  Rotating shoes, regardless of how cute they are or aren’t has to happen, ideally as often as every other day.  Change routes or at a minimum reverse the route and TRAIL/soft surface running should take up more of the training program.  Noted, in my pretty moleskine journal.  My bad.  Lesson learned.

Ohhhtay, one pic.  🙂 Missing running and walking “with purpose” because someone put the kibosh on that as well.:


Because somehow, “I break my own leg” reminded me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leEo3cXOyko

102 Aldersgate, Jacksonville,NC 28546 OPEN HOUSE THURSDAY


Please join me for lunch, catered by BREWED AWAKENINGS this THURSDAY, the 16th from 11:30-1:30 for a great open house in Aldersgate, located just off of Gum Branch Road (Gum Branch to Onsville to the Aldersgate entrance, home on your right).  Immaculate home with hardwood floors and a huge privacy fenced back yard surrounded by trees.  MLS number 118782 for more information but it’s completely worth stopping by for a few, taking a tour and having a little lunch break.  Hope to see you there!

A love letter to photoshop.



Ah, photo shop, I love thee.  Remember the good times we had years ago when I did my last head shots.  Yes, the laughter, the fun . . .

Photo session went fine, though I’m still not a fan of standing around and doing the photo thing for work, hoping this will tide me over for a few years (or I’ll get creative and hire a cartoonist again like I did years ago).  Unretouched. . .for now.

I have to laugh some days, one of the handy features of my blog is the search history, I can see how some of you found me by what you typed into a search engine such as Google or Ask.  Some favorites include “what to do when you don’t like your mother in law” and “dresses for Marines in Jacksonville, NC”. . .I am really digging, however, how so many of you are searching for ME.  Today marked well into the double digits of folks looking for “McKenzie Laurence in Jacksonville, NC”. . .so, I hope you found some great info, learned a little more about me. . .and saved the date for my next two open houses!  I hope to shake your hand soon and would love the opportunity to assist you in buying or selling a home in the Jacksonville and Onslow County area. . .I don’t bite.  😀
