My Mom, Sylvia, 91 years old and my Dad, Chet, 94 years old look forward to their daily trip to Chick-fil-A on Williamson Blvd in Daytona Beach, Florida. Yes, you read that correctly. Rain or shine, my folks make the trip to Chick-fil-A six days a week, every week.
Going to lunch every day at Chick-fil-A gives my folks a chance to visit with the owner/operator, Gary Harris and his staff. Gary al... read more >
As my usual Saturday morning started off, I sat at my local Chick-fil-A eating my Chick-n-Minis and Hash Browns. Then here come some of my favorite CFA people; trying to hide something! They had got me a "BIG" Snoopy for Christmas (they all know Snoopy and CFA are my favorite things) and the team members had taken time out to write a note and sign him.

A hurricane was threatening our shores and the decision was made for all of us girls to head towards the mountains of Virginia while the Papa stayed behind with our lab, Ethel...to hold down the fort.

Not long before Halloween, a friend of mine took me shopping for costumes. I was disappointed because my husband, Chris, wasn’t going to be back from Afghanistan for the Halloween party at Disney World we’d been planning to go to the next week.
Chris is in the Army’s 10th Mountain Division and was 12 months into his third deployment. Our daughter, Kaylinn, is three, and of her three years, he... read more >
It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving and we were dining inside for lunch with family that was visiting from California. A terrible rain storm came along while we were eating and we watched and waited for it to pass. While trying to wait out the storm, we watched Mario, an employee at the Missouri City, Texas location, usher customers to and from the restaurant to their cars with an umbrella, all... read more >
I had to write a commemorative speech for my public speaking class at Colorado State University. Because I have such a strong love for Chick-fil-A, I of course wrote it about this wonderful brand. Here is a snippet!
I will never forget the first time I had my very first Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich. It was like an explosion of deliciousness in my mouth. I thought to myself, how does Chick-fil-A ... read more >
