As I left the neighborhood one morning before spring break I saw a large Hot Air Balloon tethered in the Canyon Creek subdivision through the fog..…what a glorious sight!

 There is nothing more endearing than to see our daughter-in-law Erika embrace baking cookies with her son Handsome Hudson on a cold dreary day over the week-end in Austin baking Nana's oatmeal raisin cookies. This is a recipe my mom always made and I learned by watching and taste testing when growing up! Okay I did learn to actually bake them too! Nothing better than warm cookies straight from the oven:). Her secret was the cinnamon she added. I carried on the tradition and spent many hours baking cookies with my daughter and son using  her recipe.

Do yourself a favor if buying or selling a home –DO SO before August 1, 2015

What possibly could make a difference in Austin’s “hot” real estate market
concerning when to buy or sell in 2015? The fly in the ointment is the CFPB. (The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau). It’s the federal agency created by the Dodd-Frank financial reform law in 2011 and has wreaked havoc in the industry with its red tape and volatility.

CFPB is a vision in its own mind and has been exerting its broad powers by
imposing hefty fines on numerous financial institutions. Stand by lenders, title … (33 comments)
