I admit I am a major book - aholic!  I love to read - all different types of books, both fiction and non.  I buy books at the grocery store, the book store, random garage sales.  I frequently visit Lacey Timberland Library to get even MORE books.  I just plain love to read, and have since I was a...
I love passing by the corner florist shop in Tumwater because it is so much fun to see the "flower lady" outside the shop who is always sporting the look of the season - and right now it is pumpkins!!   And I love all things pumpkin - pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie - pumpkin spice la...
  LBA Park in Olympia is one of the City parks that offers wonderful recreation for all ages.  This past weekend our family was at the park for an adult flag football game (yes, in the rain), and the big grassy fields are perfect for that.   There are also several baseball fields and frequent gam...
A hospital is a place you usually hope NOT to need to use - other than joyful occasions like the birth of a new baby.  But since illness and accidents are impossible to forecast or control, it can be good peace of mind to know there is a good hospital in town - just in case.

How's the real estate market in the Olympia area this week?  Probably the most frequent question I get asked by anyone who knows or discovers that I am a real estate broker - whether or not they are currently trying to buy or sell a house.  It is just one of those things that almost everyone find...
When buyers decide it is time to buy a home in the Olympia, WA area, often one of the first criteria they have in mind is the location they want for that home.  And that is great because our MLS gives us quite a few different ways to search so that we can pinpoint homes for sale in the location(s...
I'm really not sure I am ready for autumn yet (yes, I know it will happen whether or not I am ready), but I am sure seeing hints of it everywhere all of a sudden. Trees are starting to show those glowing reds, golds, and oranges on a few leaves or branches.     Fall blooming flowers are joining i...
