The Front Porch View September 2022 ISSUE

 
Hello September
September brings us the end of Summer, the start of Fall, Labor day and cooler weekends!  The kids and grandkids are back to school.  Hoping you are finding some time to sit and relax and reflect on the time you had with loved ones.  We are so busy we forget to take breaks for ourselves, just a little time out.  We will start to see and taste all of our fall favorite eats and drinks with pumpkin and apple!

The Front Porch View August 2022 ISSUE

 
Hello August!
Slowly summer is winding down. We are getting back to our routines, getting the kiddos ready for school.  Hopefully getting some last minute vacations in or just a few day trips before the cool air and Fall are here. We hope you will get some down time and relax with friends and family.  Sit by the fire pit and make s’mores, laugh, enjoy each others company, maybe play a game or two. As Summer is coming to an end, we hope you are enjoying every second.

Luck-we are lucky to have Denise as our leader.  The past few weeks, I have heard more praises for Denise than ever.  Why, in her role as broker, she has helped almost every agent in our office with at least one of their deals and helping them to stay on track and or get back on track!  That is what she does, she is a problem solver,we are all so lucky to have her, her friends, family, office and clients.National Women’s Month, well we are again so fortunate enough to have one of the best in our lives, to help us, guide us, mentor us and just love us.  Thank you for doing what you do Denise. Love, Sherry and the Brook-Owen Team

The Front Porch View February 2022

The Front Porch View February 2022 ISSUE

 
Welcome February 
The month of love and red hearts.   When I think of the heart of a home, for me, my mind immediately goes to the kitchen island.  It’s where the family is seated around in various places and I resume my normal position, always standing, so I can see and hear everyone an be able to jump in at a moment’s notice.  It’s also right in front of the utensil drawer which annoys everyone else. The kitchen is where the laughter happens, where the music is way too loud and we dance.  It’s where the coffee is brewing.  It’s where there a million conversations are going on at one time, yet I’m part of every one of them.  It’s my happy place,  It’s the heart of my home.  It makes me smile.  It’s where memories are made.  
What’s the heart of your home?  Besides the people of course.
