We live in a country of “Bigger is Better”, when I first came to the USA I lived in New York and that in itself was an eye opener.  The cars are bigger, the roads are bigger, the buildings are taller, there is more food on the plate, and there are more Short People Problems. […]

Room with a View

By |March 8th, 2015|

Every home that I and the Hubs have owned has had a Room with a View.  Our condo in the city was on the second floor and was surrounded by old oak trees.  Spring, summer and fall were just amazing to be able to sit out in the tree tops on the balcony and just […]
