     After moving from the north Dallas area over two years ago, we greatly missed the restaurants that we were used to in that area.  Don't get me wrong there are some great places to eat in the Tyler, NE Texas area but most are large chains and aren't very unique.  We have discovered a wonderfu...
When you move a large metroplex area to a small community in East Texas, one of the biggest things you miss is a variety of good places to eat.  We don't eat out a lot...but find that after church on Sunday is one time that we can go as a family to a sit down restaurant.  One of our new favorite ...

Well...the good news....I've been busy since kicking off my real estate career over 6 months ago.  The first few months I was on AR 3 to 4 times a day.  As my business has been building I found that I didn't have time to visit as much as I would have liked.  I'm still very busy..but I'm not takin...
