This year, I am excited to announce that I have teamed up with the Builder Industry Association (BIA) of Central Ohio to give away four tickets to the 2018 BIA Parade of Homes. To enter the giveaway, you must follow ColumbusLivingBlog and "like" the giveaway post on Instagram or comment on this blog post by Sunday, August 19, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. The winner will be announced on Monday, August 20, 2018.
The BIA Parade of Homes opens on Labor Day weekend on Saturday, September 1 and continues through Sunday, September 16, 2018. Located in Jerome Township, in the Dublin City School District, Eversole Run is an exclusive neighborhood within the expansive Jerome Village community that offers residents a feeling of privacy and seclusion.
Home prices range from $750,000 to more than $2 million, with homes situated on spacious, park-like lots surrounded by mature trees, a ravine and a water feature.
Recently, I traveled to the beautiful island of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico with my husband and immediate family for a week-long vacation. Before we left, we were asked by several of our friends, extended family members, and co-workers whether or not it was safe to travel to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. There is no doubt that we had our own concerns as well, but there was also no other place our family wanted to go and I'm happy to report that Puerto Rico is ready to welcome back tourists to the island.
If you've never been to Puerto Rico there's no better time than the present to book your trip. The aftermath of Hurricane Maria was devastating, resulting in thousands of lives lost as well as unimaginable living conditions. Although the island was left without power and running water for months, the residents of Puerto Rico persevered and are recovering much of what was lost, whether its dealing with the emotional loss of a loved one or their homes. There are still a few areas that are recovering, but most of the popular tourist attractions (if not all) are back in business.
