My daughter and her family drove down to her dad's house last week.  They left about naptime so both of the babies fell asleep in the car.    Layla is riding in a back facing car seat but you can see her asleep in the mirror.  She loves her pacifier but her brother never took one.
My mom passed away on August 19, 2012. It  would have been my father's 88th birthday if he had still been living.  I have often though that she did not want to live another year without him. She had lost her short term memory but did not have cancer or heart problems.  She simply fell asleep one ...

I have fond memories of the time I met my first buyers. In fact, I still get goose bumps when I remember how things worked out for them.   In December of 1999, just a couple of months after I became a licensed REALTOR®, I was on floor duty. I got a call from a man inquiring about one of our listi...
