I just returned from an all too quick trip to Los Angeles/Anaheim with my oldest daughter. I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate her 18th birthday than to have some Mother-Daughter time in the happiest place on earth!

Okay, let's be honest . . . Is home staging just an "easy" portal to an interior decorating career? Afterall, it's all about re-decorating a house in a more contemporary style . . . right?
