Randy McCreith, Bella Casa Real Estate GroupIt has been a very Merry Christmas for us, but not for reasons you might expect to read about in this column. Joni and I had our entire family over On Christmas Day- 5 children and their spouses, Joni's parents, our 9 grandchildren (all 6 and younger), our niece and her family, and some friends. Just before dinner, our daughter Molly decided she and her husband, Junior (Lariano), were not staying for dinner; 2 ½ hours later we had our 10th grandchild, Cristian Lariano Barajas- on Christmas Day!

Our work is an extension of our family. We pour our lives into our business in the same way we have poured our lives into our family for 40 years now. The values and priorities we hold to naturally flow-out of us in our work and how we view our clients. We are privileged to have 3 daughters in the business with us and one son-in-law. We hope one day to offer our business to family to carry on these values. For now, we get to share our business with family, wonderful friends and like-minded colleagues who also treat our clients as if family, and with you. If our highest priority was money, we would not have the family we have, and we would not have the kind of business we offer.

We begin this New Year with good news in the family and in our industry. 2016 was a very good year for sales and for our clients. There is good reason for good hope for 2017.

Sharon Freeman, Chef/Caterer and Sommelier, Feathered NestSharon's spacious country home is beautifully decorated and can accommodate all visitors from couples to wine tasting groups, and families. You will enjoy the cozy comforts of home, with every detail and amenity attended to, combined with vineyard views on the privacy of two acres in the heart of wine country.

Annually, in late January, Willamette Valley hosts the Oregon Truffle Festival, the first truffle festival in the English-speaking world that will bring together renowned truffle experts, chefs and food writers for a series of blissful meals, educational seminars and the Joriad truffle dog championship. It is the perfect opportunity to pair regional wines with dishes featuring one of Oregon’s most precious culinary ingredients. After a busy day, retreat to the comfort of Feathered Nest (listing number #711790 on VRBO.com, or “Country Charm 2-acre Vineyard Views” on Airbnb.com).

Valentine’s Day is already booked at Feathered Nest, but as a special treat, pick another date for a wine tasting tour and book Feathered Nest's certified sommelier to prepare a food & wine paired meal for you and your guests.

Spring is a particularly beautiful season to visit wine country. Vintners and winemakers have more opportunities to meet with visitors and it is easier to secure reservations at most desirable restaurants in the area. Don’t wait too long to book your wine tasting experience. We look forward to seeing you.

Dr. Wendy Abraham, Naturopathic Physician, Sherwood Aesthetic MedicineOver the years, many patients have asked Dr. Wendy Abraham if she knew of any cures for thinning hair or male-pattern baldness. After researching different stem cell treatments, Sherwood Aesthetic Medicine is excited to announce that they are now providing hair restoration services from AQ Skin Solutions, via a treatment called the Advanced Hair Complex+.

Dr. Abraham’s treatment combines microneedling, or the use of fine needles on the scalp, with Advanced Hair Complex+ serum. The microneedling allows the serum to penetrate through the skin’s surface to the hair follicles. AQ Skin Solutions’ patented growth factor technology improves the overall condition of the scalp, as well as nourishing stem cells in the hair follicles to promote overall follicular health and strong, healthy hair growth.

For optimal results, Dr. Abraham recommends a course of five easy, weekly in-office treatments that take about thirty minutes each. As a naturopathic physician, Dr. Abraham can also help patients address several other factors that may be affecting hair growth, such as hormonal changes, stress and nutrition. Many patients start to see greater hair growth and an improvement in hair quality and texture within the first five weeks, with most seeing continued benefits three months after treatment.

“Thinning hair is one of the biggest complaints that I hear - for both men and women,” said Dr. Abraham. “After trying to find good alternatives to surgical solutions, we’re really excited to able to offer an affordable fix that’s easy to implement and doesn’t have any downtime.” If you’re looking to start 2017 with a full head of healthy hair, call 503-610-1194 for a free consultation today!

Diane Edwards, AWMA®, Edwards & Associates, Financial Services, Inc.Money Chat with Diane

Within a family, money management can be a source of extreme stress. After all, arguments about money aren’t really about money—they’re about our priorities, decisions and relationships. And just as our earliest family memories can influence how we interact with people as adults, so can early, emotionally-charged memories influence how we spend, save and invest our money.

A famous study conducted by Dr. Ted Klontz identified four core money beliefs. Below is a brief description, however, in this month’s Money Chat blog, we discuss in greater detail the unique differences and their challenges.

Money Avoider: May struggle with feeling uncomfortable in handling financial matters including basics like balancing a checkbook.

Money Status: Net worth and self-worth are synonymous. They highly value the social status that money affords.

Money Worshipper: Money equates to happiness and values the opportunities that wealth affords to enjoy life, family and friends.

Money Vigilant: Alert and focused on gaining or maintaining financial stability through consistent astuteness.

For many clients, bringing an awareness of their money belief, its origin, and how it affects their financial decisions can be the most powerful element to their financial success. Investment management and portfolio planning is something that we do behind the scenes for our clients’ success, but what they do on the front end matters just as much! No one profile is good or bad, but the key is to understand your beliefs and leverage them for your success.
