Enjoying the Summer

How is your summer going? It has been great so far in our corner of Wyoming, with mild days and cool nights. (That's pretty normal for the summer here, at our altitude.) We've had a few storms rolling through, but all in all it has been wonderful.

Great weather means great days to work on home improvement projects and cleaning projects. We just tiled a kitchen, and that brought its own cleaning challenges. We got through, them, though, and the kitchen looks great!

I hope that your summer is going well, too, and that you enjoy the tips in this week's newsletter.

Changing Lots of Title Properties
