Celebrating Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights!

Like every year at this time, today I’m thinking back to the sweet scent of jasmine and rose petals, the look of vibrant traditional attire, and the sound of friends and family laughing over sweet and savory treats. I’ve worked at Public Storage in California for 24 years, but today I’m reminiscing of my years in Mumbai and the Diwali season that starts today.

Celebrate National Grandparents Day

Celebrate National Grandparents Day

At Public Storage we like to talk about saving vintage heirlooms to remind ourselves of important family members, whether grandma’s sterling place settings or a favorite uncle’s wide-brimmed fedoras.  Today, however, is not a day to focus on things that bring good memories.
