Thank you for sharing travel guru- Danielle Garrett of

A trip to Italy has been on my bucket list for most of my life! Although I have been a flight attendant for 28 years, I had never had the opportunity to explore this area. I found on The AHA! Connection and knew I was on to something special. I shared the information with my sister and the rest was bliss. Planning a two week vacation to Italy on my own was over my head, not to mention stressful to carve out the hours to do the due diligence for an amazing vacation. Danielle Garrett came to the rescue! She carefully listened to our needs, goals and dreams and carefully crafted exhilarating days and memorable nights that literally melted like sweet chocolate in an Italian backdrop. It was comforting to find out that Danielle was behind the scenes as we moved from Rome to Naples …Pompeii to Sorrento …Naples to Florence… as she was monitoring our connections and reminding drivers to be timely for our arrivals and departures! Wow! She carefully helped us the pace our travels allowing time soak up the Italian ambiance, savor meals…wine without sulfites…and off the beaten path experiences. She connected us with the most passionate tour guides, lovely accommodations and punctual, friendly drivers…all executed flawlessly.

Thank you to The Aha! Connection


I don’t know you and don’t read the Aha Connection every time but I just want to say what a wonderful job you do. You built this up form nothing to what it is today.  Everyone refers to it or knows about it in town.  Good for you.I wish this had been around when my kids where little.   36 year resident

Hey Audra, 

Just had to say ‘thanks’ for the great recipes! I tried the one below and my family loved it. I made the slow cooker pulled pork tacos last night and OMG…yummmm. Another big hit.

Thanks and keep ‘em coming. 🙂

Thank you so much

Thank you so much for posting the U tube links to the winners of the grammys.

I don’t follow things like that, but when they are presented all neatly and concisely like this, well, of course I had to watch Glen Campbell. And would have been the less to have missed it.

You do a very nice job, Audra, I’m sure you get WAY too much e mail and probably won’t get this, but I don’t know how else to show my appreciation.

Thank you,
Betty Bartos


Hi, I just wanted to share my experience with this incredible plumber, Tom Connily. I had a problem with my bathroom and he came and fixed it in minimum time and without any hesitation. If anyone in the Dunwoody/ Sandy Springs area is in a need of a plumber, I highly recommend him!

Jack Ebrams did a great job for me!

I needs a small contracting job for my fitness training studio. I looked on The Aha Connection and found Jack Ebrams. I called him and he responded immediately. We met, and I was very impressed with him. We scheduled the job. He showed up on time, performed the work as promised, and cleaned the space as if he were never there. I bible recommend him for large or small jobs. I am so glad I have his name in my contact list. A great experience!!

Thank you for offering us the opportunity for a spontaneous “date night”!

Audra / Jonathan –

My husband and I went to the performance last night and were so pleasantly surprised!  Jim Malcolm was funny as he shared his stories and the background to the songs he sang.  He had wonderful music talent and we enjoyed the old ballads along with the newer songs. 

We did not know about Steve’s Live Music venue but it is a hidden gem in Sandy Springs.  The service was good and the food was really enjoyable too!! 

thank you for offering us the opportunity for a spontaneous “date night”! 

kind regards,
