Spring is here! It is one of my favorite seasons, especially here in Boise where there is so much to do.

As the weather begins to warm up here in the Boise area, now is the perfect time to begin revamping your outdoor space for the warmer seasons ahead. Spending time outside is my favorite thing to do in the summer, and it is even better when you have a comfortable outdoor space to enjoy it in. In this blog post, I will be sharing my top five tips to revamp your patio space in time for the summer.
Add an area rug
Having even just a small area rug can really help your outdoor space to feel more cozy and inviting. They also can help decorate your space and give it the extra touch that it needs. Here are some of my favorite options at a range of price points:
Hampton Bay Star Moroccan Rug
Jill Zarin Outdoor Rug
West Elm Reflected Diamond Rug
Incorporate some plants

HOW TO BUY A HOME OUT OF STATE
Buying a home out of state can be stressful and full of emotions. In this video, I help you lock down the basics steps of buying a home out of state.
1. Know your numbers. You have to know where you want your monthly mortgage payment to be. This is a pretty easy thing to do but can throw you off a bit on a new area.

3. Make sure those involved in the process are on board with moving. Sometimes half of the party is more on bo ...
