I hope that you are doing well. July is here, and like the real estate market, the weather is hot in St. Louis. Of course, the Blues won the Stanley Cup a couple of weeks ago, and we have not stopped celebrating. Let’s keep it up! LikeMelissa Marr said, let’s Rejoice as summer should…chase away sorrows by living. As usual, I’ve got a few suggestions for you to get out and live in St. Louis this month. Let’s do it together!
All the best. -Nate
