My middle son, William, turned 8 today, Memorial Day, May 30th! How could I make my boy's day special? He is such a good kid and deserving of some extra special attention. I am a teacher and end of the school year events had me frazzled and unimaginative. I planned last minute. I knew that most of his friends would likely be at the beach for the weekend but thought maybe I could gather a couple... read more >
At the end of April 2010, my wife, our two small children and myself drove from Nolensville, TN to the opening of your Bethlehem, GA location hoping to be in the First 100. We were fortunate enough that both of us made it in, with my number being the 100th ticket drawn. As soon as we set up our tent, we received a call that my mother was critically ill at the hospital. We had left TN knowing th... read more >
Our community, The Landings, located at 6820 Woodbend Drive in Raleigh, NC experienced a devastating fire on May 23, 2011 at 3:30 a.m. Twenty-seven of our residents were displaced due to this event. When the blaze was put out, many were still in shock by what they had just experienced. Many did not know where to start to put the pieces of their lives back together. It is times like this that ... read more >
Every year, twice a year, for two years running, five of my close friends and I have piled into a van and driven an hour south out of Ann Arbor, Michigan into Toledo to get our hands on our favorite food.
This has become somewhat of a post-finals tradition for us, coming out of high school, and should continue for us in college where we'll be together as well. We lament that there are no closer l... read more >
Dear Stephen (operator of Chick-fil-A in Smyrna),
I just want to commend the whole staff at Chick-fil-A in Smyrna, GA for a job well done. I visit the restaurant quite often with my 2 year old son and receive friendly and consistent service every time -- no exceptions. Often times, we come in on Tuesday evenings --family night -- and even with a full restaurant (busting with children) -- all the... read more >
Chick-fil-A is a weekly hang out spot for my son (7) and I. The Johnston's and their managing crew are awesome and very creative with their family activities. Every week's family activities prove such care to details.
This past Tuesday, May 10, 2011, Chick-fil-A hosted a Date with Mom night. I have to honestly admit that it was one of the best dates I have been on in my life. My son and I enjoye... read more >
14 months before this photo was taken, I decided it was time for me to start enjoying a healthier lifestyle. Through the help of the Weight Watchers program and many, many Chick-fil-A grilled chicken sandwiches and fruit cups I have lost 103 pounds! If you notice, the photo is taken of me standing next to a large photo of me 103 pounds ago. I look and feel so much younger and healthier!
Many... read more >
The tornado hit Birmingham Alabama on April 27, 2011. My mother's neighborhood, close to Pratt City, was hit hard. Her home was spared but everything around her was leveled. The day after the tornado I took food, and water to my mother and brother. I had to park far away and walk because the neighborhood was impassible by car. When I got the entrance of my mother's subdivision I saw Heath K.,... read more >
