Every once in a while I come across a new concept or idea that is worth sharing. Several months ago I purchased a copy of a new book called “Surviving Your Serengeti” by Stefan Swanepoel.

I could not have been more wrong!

While the husband bemoans the lack of cell phone coverage and is consumed with worry about his business thousands of miles away, his wife becomes immediately immersed in life in the East African plains. Slowly they gain wisdom from the wild animals they encounter and they find themselves revisiting many perspectives they …
I am not talking about in listings or client’s homes (you should probably take your shoes off anyway.) I am talking about taking them off at your own home before you even enter. Not for the dirt or cleanliness of it…but for the warmth and relaxation of it. I went through 20 years of hearing my husband’s shoes across the wood floors… for some reason this drove me mad.

Another 365 days quietly slips into the past. A year that had devastating earthquakes in Haiti, Chile, China and Indonesia, its fair share of tropical storms, hurricanes and even large volcanic eruptions in Iceland and Japan. Natural disasters often remind us how extremely insignificant we are.
