I know it took me a while to update and I SINCERELY apologize but the internet connection here has been shoddy at best. Now I have a full battery and full connection so of course the first thing I do is check up on my ActiveRain (wink wink Kerrie). Germany has been an absolute blast. My family an...
So I don't actually know what "or bust" meant so I looked it up. I guess it means "We're going to get to [location] or die trying!" It's been a while since I've blogged on my ActiveRain and frankly, I'm surprised Kerrie hasn't made any threats. What better way to come back into the rain than to b...

Since I was asked to approach home buying from not only a personal basis, but as a representative of my generation as well, I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to own a home. Up until no...
The stakes in real estate transactions are high – and often fraught with emotion for people who may well be engaging in the biggest purchase or sale of their lives. Furthermore, it takes a lot of different people working together to make a home purchase or other real estate transaction happen. Th...
