We Survived the Itch!

The Infamous Seven Year Itch!

I think it's a myth.  Not once in the past year did either of us feel any itch as far as I can tell.

7 Year Itch

Tomorrow marks my 8 year wedding anniversary!  I'm truly blessed to be united with Deborah, the woman I love.

Another 8 year milestone is approaching.  In less than 5 months, I'll have had my real estate license for 8 years.  While far less significant than my marriage license, I have not felt much of an itch here either.

Like my marriage, my real estate career has blossomed over the last 7+ years.

The only itch is to keep on growing and achieving new levels of success.

I want to sincerely thank all of my friends, clients, colleagues, and most

especially my wife in supporting my real estate career.

Dude.. a big congrats....  that's great.  Not that it's funny, but my best friend, his wife did get that 7 year itch..  Sad, because they have 3 kids also.

Seriously though, that is great. Hey, I might be in DC at the end of October.... I will keep you posted.

Congrats Brian!

Our dogs got back from the kennel the other day and were scratching a lot of itches.  Is that the same thing?
