Welcome back everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful July!  Summer is half-way over and if you've been thinking of sprucing up your home before your family visits for the holidays, now is the time.  I know that sounds like a line to sell my services (which it partially...

Happy late-Thanksgiving and early-Christmas to you all!

Well, today has been quite a fun day for me!  Okay, it had some ups and downs, but the highlights are what we will be focusing on today, and that was the 45th Annual Sacred Heart Holiday Home Tour.
