​Our guest is Courtney Blackwell​,owner and ​vintage clothing ​curator of Nostalgic Era. ​Now based in Brooklyn, NY, Courtney is still a Louisiana girl, born & raised! "I started dressing in vintage at the age of 18 and it really just became my style. In 2019 a friend reached out to me & told me I should start taking my journey more seriously because I was great at it. I didn’t know where to start and honestly​. ​I was a little afraid​,​ but I did it anyway with the world of social media watching me. Fast forward almost 3 years later I have been featured on major websites like Elite Daily, LisaSayGah etc. and have branded/partnerships with many companies! My ultimate goal is to open a Vintage Store here in New York & continue to spread my passion! ​"

MaryMac’s Doggie Retreat was founded by Courtney McWilliams in the Fall of 2015 due to Courtney needing a pet sitter for her dog, who suffered with severe separation anxiety. Courtney knew that she could not be the only one in the area who found it hard to find a trusted dog sitter who understood pet anxiety and depression. As a Social Worker, Courtney understood how separation anxiety and depression could play a major role in the lives of children; she found this to be true with dogs.
Courtney combined her years of experience as Social Worker with her love for dogs together to focus on reducing a dog’s anxiety and/or depression while their pet parents are away. She understands how hard it can be to find a sitter who will care for your dog as if it’s their own, therefore she focuses on giving each and every dog one on one attention.
Realizing that each dog is different, MaryMac’s Doggie Retreat does not utilize the one-size fits all approach. We focus in reducing anxiety and depression through specialized enrichment activities that include keeping the dogs in smaller group settings, maintaining a 1 to 5 ratio, structured play time with best friends, individualized attention, and tailored activities designed to stimulate the mind while increasing confidence and self-control.
​​
Since opening MaryMac's, Courtney continues to push the boundaries when it comes to engaging her audience and customers. She has since begun speaking to women worldwide about powers of networking and growing their business. She has been featured in The New Orleans Magazine, The Biz Mag, The Southern Jewish Life Mag, HerGrit Mag and a host of many other publications.
 
What We Promise:
A peace of mind for dog owners when leaving their dogs in our care, especially if their dog is anxious.
  • Safety for all dogs in our care.
  • Consistently educate our staff and pawrents on the latest trends in pet care.
  • Most importantly, have fun!

 Dr. Pastor Mary Brown | Victory of Deliverance Outreach Ministry | www.pastormarybrown.com
 
This year's Mothers Day, I spent in New Orleans, LA because my mom insisted that the weather was too bad for me to drive to Lafayette, LA to see her on that day. The weather ended up not being so bad, but I didn't hesitate to go and see her because moms typically say one thing and really mean something else. Something else like - "So you're really just not going to dry down here in a storm to see your momma even though I slaved and worked my butt off all your life to make you happy?" lol
 
So, I went to see her as soon as I got the chance so that we could spend some time together, eat, and chat. My mother and I were born in different social and political climates to the point where sometimes, I just listen, because I can't relate haha... and in learning to "just listen", I continue to learn to also just accept. 
 
It is important that in our relationships, those where we may not always agree on the this moral construct or that social obligation or this or that or...you get my point, it's more important to just listen and love and the common ground will find itself. My mom and I have done that all my life - found common ground - and been able to have fun while I sometimes took it too far with my lil' mouth lol... 
 
In this conversation, my mom, Dr. Pastor Mary Brown, shares some stories, some advice, and just some of herself for you all. She's nothing new to me ..ha! ...which is why I had to share her with you! This allows me to see her in a new light and that is something very special for me to experience as well. I hope you all continue to love on your moms every chance you have. And to all of the moms in my life - Nanny, Ms. Gerri, my grandmothers (now deceased), my aunts, my mom friends, and you, if you're a mom - you are cherished and WE appreciate you! 
 
With light,
Arielle
