I'm from the heartland, and I will always be a midwestern girl even as the years I've been living in Dallas - update: we just moved to Orlando - fly by. These are my daily musings and interests for my family in Ohio, who I see far too little of, and for anyone else who cares what I had for dinner. Feel free to email me at jecgirlie@gmail.com.

You Can't Take the Ohio Out of the Girl

Tatum Brown Custom Homes, Dallas.

This house was in our old neighborhood!  I recognize it, even from the back.  Corner of Northaven and whatever that street was that we took on the “short walk” route.  When it was initially being built it looked too stark and modern for the area, but then I grew to really like it.  Oh, Dallas…Miss ya…

Princeton residence, Dallas. Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro.

Matt and I used to love walking the dogs around Dallas and looking at the beautiful homes.  So many different architectural styles and wow, do people have the money to build astounding houses there.  Neighborhoods were constantly turning over, like ours.  We lived in an adorable 1950s ranch home and next door was a million dollar home.  We used to joke that we were the poorest in the neighborhood.  It was fun to see houses torn down and mansions being built in their place.  We’d follow the progress of certain ones on each walk.  I just hope we can afford to get back into our neighborhood when we return to Dallas.  When, not if!
