Indulge me in a personal story (once again), will you? Back in 1998, I went from a high-flying career as a criminologist to being a stay-at-home mom in the span of about a week. And I stayed at home for the next five years. During that time, I went through quite a few identity crises. What does […]
When and how did it become all about the glamour shot in real estate? I don’t think it was always like this. But now, everywhere you look, you’ve got real estate agents’ faces plastered on For Sale signs, in newspaper ads for open houses, on business cards, on billboard signs for lots and developments.

This has nothing to do with Montreal real estate, Montreal home staging, or plans for 2010. It has everything to do with: 1. Being in Key West last year on vacation with Mr. Man; and 2. Mr. Man finding this picture on the computer the other day and saying, “Hey, you should blog about this.” Yes, he […]
I just read this post from Nancy who is in Utah with her husband, working on setting her goals for 2010. I find it so poignant. I can relate to her being in a place of beauty and of simplicity, with only what she needs, and finding that suddenly her mind opens, the ideas abound […]
