This week, I threw it back to a post on selling houses and dating boys. In it, I wrote about how I felt that “I don’t get perfect,” in either real estate transactions or in dating gentlemen callers.

At the time I wrote that post, I was actually seeing […]

By |2017-03-07T15:39:58-06:00October 26th, 2014|Publishing Schtuff|
