#throwbackthursday on steroids: 201 W. Platt Street- currently, the location of @zudars_on_platt, but in 1984, an 800 sq ft back area of it was the first office of Bert Thomas Architect. We rented that space from Dr. J. Leon Schwartz, an oral surgeon's office where my mother worked for over 30 years. We set up shop, taking it a day at a time. In this picture, my oldest daughter and grandmother came to visit. I remember it was a nice break in the day!
Rule #1 : Always make time for family.
I still have several of the items you see in this photo- the drawing table, dust brush, lamp, and wooden name plate on the shelf. You could say I'm a creature of habit, but it's also a tangible reminder of hard work.
Rule #2 : Work hard, invest in what's worth investing in, and hold on to the reminders.
You're still with me?? Obviously we have moved offices, but if you were to go by Zudars today, you may still see this concrete planter. Worn down from 30+ years of exposure, it still represents to me what I originally built it to be. The lower horizontal base represented my grandfather Aubrey, with the three vertical ones representing my brother Scott, my father Tom, and myself...Thomas Development Corporation, which ultimately became just me- Bert Thomas Architect.
Rule #3 : Remember and honor what is worth remembering and honoring.
That being said, an entire building should be constructed to honor my mother, Joan Thomas, and sister, Carla Lenkerd. You may know Carla from Tampa General, loving and leading staff and patients alike. You can't miss her, ask any TGH staff! And my mother- she was indescribable. But I'll save that for another post- I've rambled, and she deserves it.
Absolutely, yes! I'm available for private events! What does this look like? I can host at your home with a large room or poolside, or in a business, or even at a park now that it is getting a little cooler! Ladies love getting together to socialize, so why not wear your athleisure clothes, get a workout in together and then eat, drink and be merry! Just message me and we will set it up!! #fitnessfunfriends#matclass#pilateslife#southtampamoms#pilatesstrong#stjohnseagles#hydeparkvillage
