One of the many reasons to reside in South Florida or live seasonally is the beauty and abundance of waterways.  Nothing is more serene than gazing out your backyard and see the sunshine glistening on the water behind the house knowing it is at your beck and call.

Valentine's Day is a time of velvet hearts, chocolate sweets, romantic dinners, and love. It's not clear who the original Valentine was — there were several — but a saint's day with that name was established on the Roman Catholic liturgical calendar as early 1,500 years ago. There are indications that Valentine's Day may have originally been adopted in part to replace of the ancient pagan fertility festival of Lupercalia, which fell on February 13 to 15. By the time of Chaucer in the Middle Ages, the Valentine's Day had become associated with romantic love.

Many couples dream to go to Paris on their honeymoon or on Valentine's Day because the city is so well-known for its romantic walks along the Seine River, sidewalk cafe dining and the sparkling…

One of the first things many South Florida homebuyers look at when purchasing a new home is the kitchen.
