Spirit horse or merely drift wood? An artist's conception of one of nature's most majestic animals, created with pieces of intertwined drift wood, no glue or screws to hold it together. I can just imagine it gracing the open desert plains, throwing up dirt while it charges ever forward, pounding a pattern into the drifting sand, then quietly seeking solace for the day in a slow gait. Assembled strategically, this artistry creates a whole but seperately are merely pieces of drift wood found in and lying alongside a dry river bed. Amazing what the mind can do when put to. Happy Sunday all!

 Another successful southern Utah transaction closed and recorded! My clients closed and recorded on a home lot in Red Mountain Estates in Ivins, Utah yesterday and now move forward with a new build. Buyers have chosen a custom floor plan designed to meet and exceed their every need and want. Land and homes prices are going up and many people now see the value of purchasing while interest rates are still low and an abundance of homes are priced well and ready to move. For those who may not find what they are searching for, new construction is the way to go. And while you're in town, catch a few Downtown St. George events like: Art Around the Corner Friday Night Movies St George Marathon Medal Event Huntsman World Senior Games Events Ironman Competition And much more!  The St. George Tow...

Need a change of view? Ride a camel! Tuacahn Ampitheatre offered camel rides during the Festival of Lights for $5 and money well spent! I eagerly stood in line with children a third my size, becoming giddy, watching my son and his girlfriend take their turn, openly laughing with bright smiles on their faces! How exciting!   I had to climb the stairs to get at the right height and then straddle his back to get situated. His hump was warm and his hair very soft and curly as we began a short journey around the parking lot. His padded feet barely made noise when he walked on the concrete while he gently swayed from one side to the other. And the best thing is...he smelled good! Ed, I neither rode in the valley or on the mountain but ride I did! One less item on the list of Things to Do! Hap...

The Real Reason for the Season! We had the privilege of seeing the Live Naitivity for the first time this year at Tuacahn Ampitheatre in Ivins, Utah. The show lasted a mere 20 minutes but gave an thorough history of the birth of Christ and the true meaning of Christmas.  It is a memorable event that continues to draw people yearly, night after night. We thoroughly enjoyed the authentic feel of the story and from our home to yours, Merry Christmas!
