We live in a 3-bedroom, 2-bath ranch-style home tucked in a charming neighborhood of a big but friendly Texas city. From the moment we saw the house, we were charmed by the cozy vibes, tall oak trees and window-filled sunroom overlooking the backyard gazebo, where we love to lounge on nice days and talk. The yard is Calen’s happy place. He enjoys gardening on weekends, while Megan is content to watch from inside, where she’s decorated the house with souvenirs from our travels. The open floor plan means there’s plenty of room to host friends and family and for a kid to play. Our warm and welcoming community is located close to everything — including family and friends. Megan's aunt, uncle and cousins live less than a mile away, and we have close friends whose house is just a few streets away. Plus, both sets of our parents live within about a 30-minute drive. We love that our community is diverse and welcoming; there’s a great mix of people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. There's a strong sense of community, with a historical society, garden club and huge annual Halloween block party (we can't wait to take a child some day!). Lots of families call our neighborhood home thanks to the spacious yards, nearby parks and proximity to great schools.
