Ever since the show Fixer Upper came on TV, Randall and I have become obsessed with the idea of buying and flipping properties. We love doing renovation work and the idea of improving houses that are on their last legs is very appealing. It seems too risky, too scary for ordinary people like us to ever make something like that a success. But, one thing I have discovered in the 30+ years of life is that it is never too late to pursue dreams and look for inspiration from those around you.
One of my big inspirations has come from a high school friend that I feel fortunate to have reconnected with through Facebook, Lisa D’Alessandro (or Lisa Shappert for all of you Crestwood High School readers out there). If you don’t know Lisa, she was always a little quiet until you got to know her, and then she was hilarious. She is single-handedly working to bring fanny packs back into fashion, hot pink ones and all. And let me tell you, she is working it!
