I am a real estate broker and I own my own firm and when I am working I dedicate myself to the task at hand. And in the down turn in the market I spent more hours working for less money. But when I have seen many of my colleagues close their doors and even some loose their homes I have continued to have success. I credit that success to my ability to adapt and change with both technology and the market. My family, perhaps, has missed me the past four years and so I finally arranged a two week vacation. I got my office covered and I set out to spend some time with family. I have always put any and everything aside for a family emergency (doesn't everyone?) but for two weeks I gave my time to family. It was a fabulous two weeks.
I got to meet my new great (and very first) niece Cassidy. Met her mom Wilma for the first time too. Got to eat my nephew Steven's spagetti and boy was it great. Got to take my two neices Amanda (motor boat) and Kristin (krispy) to the San Diego Zoo. Got to spend time with my in laws (Jan and Larry) and my brother in law Andrew. And I got a new (it's really old) favorite coffee cup. I saw lots of beauitul things, met some new great folks (more about that later). But for now I hope you enjoy these family photos. If you click on the arrows you can go through them at your own pace and see my other family members .
