Former ABC15 Smart Shopper Chelsey Davis Hamilton had two dreams she made thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Centennial High School graduate was keen to write children’s books and appear on the small screen with her husband, Brandon Hamilton, former TV host and presenter / reporter.
Their show, âHome Sweet Arizona,â will air regularly on CW61Arizona at 11:30 am on Saturday, but the premiere is scheduled for 12:30 pm Saturday, October 30, just after the Day of the Dead parade. The first episode will be about “all the scary things”.
âIt will be a lot of fun to finally get to be on a show together,â said Davis Hamilton. âWe have always been in competing stations. We do all aspects of it together: hosting, executive production, filming and editing. “
“Home Sweet Arizona” is a user-friendly local marketing program that provides useful information on everything related to the home, including real estate information, home improvement tips, decorating, design, home protection. a house, ideas for making memories with the families at home and vacation ideas.
“Let’s talk about kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, offices, cinemas, backyards, landscaping, swimming pools, pest control, buying and selling process, house flipping, unique properties for sale, vacation rentals, at -so far from- home experiences, things to do and enjoy outside the home in Arizona, etc. She said.
âThink of HGTV mixed with Hallmark’s ‘Home and Family’. “
Davis Hamilton considers that a house is not âjust a roof over your head. People call Arizona home.
Davis Hamilton fulfilled another dream during the COVID-19 pandemic: writing children’s books. During her forties, she wrote five books, the first of which, “Wyatt’s Wheels,” was self-published via Amazon in July, Disability Pride Month.
âWyatt’s Wheelsâ tells the story of a little boy with spina bifida who wants to try his hand at the track team. Thanks to amazing friends and family, the boy in the wheelchair makes his dream come true while teaching people what it means to win. She said the response had been “overwhelming”.
âI am passionate about standing up for and supporting people with disabilities,â she said.
âI also like alliteration. So, my children’s books will include these four I’s: inclusion, impact, inspiration and innovation. We are all capable of making our dreams come true.
Davis Hamilton is a triple threat. She is an author, editor and illustrator. Each book is a standalone story, but at the end of each it teases the next. In this case, it’s “Serenity’s Superpowers”, about a blind girl who “saves the day”.
âI’m really excited,â she said. âIt’s a few weeks away from being released. I am also working on versions of audiobooks. People with any type of visual impairment should also appreciate these books. “
Davis Hamilton aims to publish another book by November.
âI put all my heart and soul into it,â she said. âGetting that reaction is very special.
Love at first sight
Hamilton left his role as co-host at “Your Life Arizona” to work in real estate for Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty and the television show.
The âpowerful coupleâ have been married for more than five years. The two met in 2014 when they were morning traffic anchor points at competing valley stations.
âIt was love at first sight,â she said.
The two saw each other on TV before they met. An acquaintance told Hamilton he should contact her.
âOn our first date, we went to Postino on Central,â she said. âI drive a truck. I parked my truck in parallel. He had a Hummer at the time. He used the valet. They pulled the Hummer away and he was wearing a vest, a jacket over his shoulder, and doves flying behind him. We talked for three hours. I left, I called my girlfriends and I said to them: “I met this one”. It was love at first sight. Our first date photo is in an ornament which is a television.
Five-year former NFL cheerleader Davis Hamilton is a huge fan of the Cardinals. She’s been a part of the Morning Anchor Teams for almost a decade, doing traffic, entertainment reporting, creating series, and hosting Smart Shopper. She remains devoted to her GPS (God’s Plan for Success) and to being the sun of others.
âWhile it’s important to make a good first impression, it’s more important to leave a lasting one,â she added.
Hamilton is also a historic curator; DIY expert; and host, producer and creator of shows.
“He’s going to tell the story of a property, not just photograph it,” she said. âHe wants to save the integrity of some of these houses that would otherwise be destroyed. It was really fun. We look at things and think differently from most people. We tell a story.
âHe did such an amazing job. He supports this leap of faith so much. I had this deeper vocation. This is what I had to do to fulfill the dreams, goals and passions that God put in my heart.
