Mandie Rhymes, a resident of Benton, has some awesome insights on what she hopes to see in her life in 2019.
“A new year is always a fresh start and that’s the fun of it. You get to decide what you want to do and who you want to be. I’m looking forward to watching my family grow and working as hard as I can with my business. I’m praying to find a perfect warehouse space for my boutique next year,” said Rhymes.
Rhymes will be spending New Year’s at a neighborhood party with friends and family. She can’t wait to ring in the New Year with lots of love and laughs. For those of you who might need a safe ride home from parties this year, you can reach out to Uber or Lyft by visiting their websites or downloading their apps to get your fare estimate and begin your ride process.
Be safe, have fun and enjoy a happy New Year!
