My Amazing Family

I have some incredible family members who are so very entrepreneurial and talented that I just had to share more about them.

My brother Frank and his wife Kristin are quite the internet entrepreneurs with several really wonderful businesses online. They have Posh Eyewear, through which they sell reading glasses and accessories. I don't yet wear reading glasses, but I love looking at the accessories -- and these "Pocket Eyes" are a really cool option for reading glasses on the go. This makes my inevitable future need easier to anticipate.

Kristin has also begun Elastic by the Yard site selling "skinny elastic" to use in creating baby headbands. I'm usually not much of a fan of head bows for babies, but the skinny elastic coupled with the small felt flowers are cute -- and it's hard not to enjoy the sweet pictures of my niece Hailey that decorate the site! Kristin may yet bring me around on these head decorations... On a related note, you must check out Hailey's Halos, the pre-made headbands Kristin makes.
And of course I've always loved Kristin Barnett Photography (the site even has a picture of me!), and Frank's marketing work as well as his theological musings at Ek Anastasis. Definitely a power couple!

My cousin Melissa Riedel is one of the most talented people I've ever met. She is also both incredibly humble, and quite hilarious. Her singing literally will bring tears to your eyes or send chills down your spine, it is so beautiful--don't take my word for it, take a listen to or watch one of her recordings. Of course, after putting on an incredible performance like this, you spend a little time with Melissa and you will find yourself in tears again from laughing at her wit. If you get a chance to see a Melissa Riedel production, it is so worth it (and you should totally go out with her after the show if you can)!! I can only imagine how much fun she would be to work with on a major production.

Last, but not least, is my amazing husband and his brothers who own and run Perkins Adamantine Technologies. AdamanTech is a technology service provide company and the Perkins boys have the ability to handle high tech issues and explain them to (not-so-high-tech) people like me.

As an aside, both AdamanTech and Frank Barnett marketing have provided services to The Barnett Law Firm -- it's nice to sometimes keep things in the family.
