Hello, friends! You may be thinking, “Why would you start a blog?! How much time can you possibly have to dedicate to this?!”

The fact of the matter is this: I lost both of my parents and my dog (whom I loved more than anyone should) in the span of 5 months. I have learned a lot during this time and I honestly need an outlet. I find that Facebook is not quite the right place for the many fun things I want to share. I am passionate about real estate, but life is so much more than work. I hope you think of this blog as I do: a fun place to share a thing or two about decorating, real estate, and just plain ol’ life.

I am married to my high school sweetheart Rick and we’ve been together for 26 years. I live in beautiful Stillwater, MN. I grew up here and my children attend the same schools that I did, which I kind of love. We have 3 children, Maddie (19), Jordan (18), and Harry (15). Oh, and we can’t forget Milton Jones…my new puppy love!

I love all things family, food, real estate, and decorating, and I’d like to share a few of those things with you. My real job is selling real estate in the St. Croix Valley and surrounding areas, but I’m often asked for recipes, decorating and staging tips, or even where I got my new shoes, so I decided to give this blogging thing a whirl…

I’m looking forward to spending some time with you all!
