June 2017 Lifestyle Letter

June 2017 Lifestyle Letter

My wife Julie and I have been married for 22 years now. We have six sons, ranging in age from 19 down to 2. We have our hands full and spare time doesn’t really exist anymore.
Despite that lack of time, I’ve always achieved more around the house in May and June than any other time of the year. June typically is when I complete most of my home improvement projects. The temperature is usually about as perfect as it gets in Boise. The rain has usually stopped, and the weather allows me to open the garage door, windows and doors and start working all around the house.

Sprawling Estate in Eagle

Sprawling Estate in Eagle 5

Call me a romantic, but I’ve always thought the city of Eagle was a bit whimsical and just a touch outside of reality. The sprawl of the town, it’s reputation, the lifestyle it represents—all of these things contribute to an ideal location and way of life for many people, including myself.
