I found the most amazing property today in Gunter, Texas. Would make an AWESOME second home.

I have an idea. let’s get a 5,000 square foot home here, a condo in downtown Dallas (Ritz, House) and call it our second home!

What a shame to let a gorgeous vacation house stand empty when it could be put to good use raising funds to support the homeless! If you’re going to rent a vacation place anyway, why not book a spot that will do the same? Austin Street Center is hosting a fundraiser that has your name […]
