So much of what I do in helping people buy and sell homes reminds me of what "home" really means. More than a physical structure to provide shelter, home is a place where memories are created and held.  I read an article in the Smithsonian recently that provided a wonderful definition of the word: "Be it ever so humble, it's more than just a place.  It's also an idea – one where the heart is."  

There is no time like the holidays when this meaning holds more truth.  I always look forward to this time of year when I can be with my family and friends and enjoy (way too much) decadent food.  I am very thankful to be surrounded by so many incredible people in my life!
