This truly is the most wonderful time of the year – I love Christmas and New Years as it reminds me of the best part of the holidays – family! Okay so some of you may say “Family – come hang with my family and see if you say that?” Okay well family dynamics are always interesting but I am sure you appreciate your family as well this time of year.
I like to use this time of year to reflect on the wonderful things we have in our lives – with friends and family being at the top of the list! Whether you have a big family or small family, are starting your own family with kids (like my husband and I) or seeing your kids now all grown up, family is for me what makes the holidays special.
Families truly do make a house a home and a home is the foundation of every family! At home is where most of the memories and traditions surrounding the holidays take place. I think it is this reason why I love working in real estate and working with families to find that perfect home. Everytime I show a home I try to envision where the Christmas tree will go and how the exterior will look decorated with lights. And when selling a home I realize that a family is not getting ready to just sell a house but close a chapter on many years of holiday memories and traditions.
So with that in mind I wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season. Treasure the time you have with families and friends and the home that those many great memories and traditons will take place in!
