Momma, look! A snake!

Ew, there’s a bat in that tree!

That neighbor’s a witch!

Ghosts are swinging in the breeze

good in the hood


Shop for a new home when the skies are sunny, when the new neighbors are out and the local dogs are being funny. Take the kids for a walk down the road to look for red squirrels, baby rabbits and wise tree toads. Close your eyes to hear the excitement swell as closer draws the sound of the ice cream truck bell. Stand in the drive for a minute or two and allow the house to speak to you. Now imagine you are planting flowers and cutting the grass. Gee, you have might have found a home at last!
