Home is an important, emotionally charged word. Reaching home is the goal in baseball and in life. Home plate, home made, home boy, home team advantage and the list goes on and on. To me, home symbolizes safety, comfort and ease.
At heart, I am a home girl. I like to be home. It doesn’t need to be grand or extravagant. The simple familiarity is comforting to me. I traveled more this summer than I have in a long time and loved every minute of it. In fact, I would have stayed longer on each trip if it was an option.
Houston in the summer is rough. I haven’t seen the city this empty in quite a while. Traveling is on again and people are escaping the heat! When I ask people how their trip was, the reply I usually get is, “It was great, but it is good to be home.”
With school starting in a couple of weeks, we will see the familiar hustle and bustle of Houston resume soon. I hope you all had a great summer!

Falling home prices? Fortune shared this interactive map, which shows the statistical odds of home prices dropping based on location.

However, predictions indicate significant price reductions will occur in other markets including Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and California. Read more here.

Who said living in the countryside can’t be chic? Take a look at these beautiful Modern Farmhouses, which combine the charm of rural life and the stylish comforts of 21st century living, the modern farmhouse really does offer the best of both worlds!
Thinking of installing a mini home gym in my garage. I currently use free weights, a kettle bell and a jump rope to get my sweat on. What equipment can you not live without? I’d love your recommendations.
