When my husband and I were looking for a house, we had our hearts set on the Woodlawn Lake area. Though we particularly liked the area on the other side of the lake, where all the older homes are, our realtor managed to convince us to take a look at a house in the University Park area. And when we drove up and saw the big oak tree out front, we were glad we listened to our agent. We fell in love with that tree and with the house. 

The location, with St. Mary’s University and its beautiful architecture to the west and Woodlawn Lake to the east, can’t be beat. We’ve now lived here for 21 years and love the community we’ve built. Much of my life revolves around our house and Woodlawn Lake. 

I’ve worked very hard to live a life that I enjoy, so I make my home a sacred space. I have an area where I do my prayer and meditation and an area where I practice my yoga for me. My husband, son and I all work from home, so we’ve created our own office spaces that work for us. It’s a very simple, humble little casita, but when people come over they feel comfortable. And that’s what I want.
