Those kinds of homes look like the mom really has her act together. If I could only achieve this status. … Well, when stepping foot into MY house, one quickly realizes…THAT AIN’T ME!

Running a small, locally-owned business is truly a family affair. And when I say family, I am not just talking about my own family. Often that includes the families of my staff and sometimes even innocent bystanders who agree to pitch in. Our job descriptions and job titles are more like maybes, possibilities, and guidelines. This month, that translated to all hands on deck to sweep the concrete at the airport before our photoshoot. Photoshop can do wonders, but it can’t clean up all the red dirt at a construction site.

The Unexpected Route Home

There’s a famous quote by Angela N. Blount that says, “Sometimes the most scenic roads in life are the detours you didn’t mean to make.” This feels like the perfect introduction to the story behind Lisa and Mark Looney’s new house.

Instead, it all started when Lisa had a friend from Hot Springs call and say she and her husband were headed to Texarkana for the day to look at houses.

It is a career, or even more accurately, a lifestyle requiring a firm grip on many complex subjects, including these and others. Going to work each day, facing weather uncertainties, devouring pests, soil conditions, and the potential breakdown of complex machinery, acts as the most advanced, and sometimes severe form of continuing education.

As we gear up for the dog days of summer, a popular saying often resurfaces in conversations and across social media platforms: “You only have eighteen summers with your child, so make them count.” This phrase reminds us time is a thief. … These eighteen summers offer us a unique window to celebrate life together free from the usual rush of the school year. It is our chance to really engage in whatever our kids love to do, enjoy just being there with them, and make memories full of adventure.
