Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial Day, originally called “Decoration Day”, is upon us, and while we remember the men and women who died while serving in the Armed Forces of the United States, we also celebrate the beginning of Summer, which always includes a feast.  I thought I would share how some of my fellow bloggers set the stage for the event.

Pro Spotlight on Porch

My firm partnered with Porch, the newest kid on the block of design-related apps, which will officially launch in June.  I was impressed by the drive and passion this group of young tech geniuses brought to our industry by developing a brand new way of connecting home owners with professionals.

I am honored that they chose me for the first “Pro Spotlight” on their blog.  Check it out and look out for Porch on your smartphone in June.  I would love to hear your thoughts.
