A big thank you to everyone who stopped by our table at the LI Real Estate & Business Renaissance or Smithtown Festival Day this past weekend - we had a blast at both events, and loved meeting all of you! This weekend is promising to be sunny again, with the same threat of intermitent showers, but it's also looking like there is a ton of fun ahead of us with all sorts of great events happening this weekend, and also in the upcoming weeks. As the weather continues to heat up, so does the excitement on Long Island - and if there's one thing that everyone can enjoy, it's fun in the sun.
