If you're a parent, then perhaps this photo will make you wax nostalgic. Time was when families seemed to share so much, through the good times and even the bad.
If you're the son or daughter in this, or other family photos, then you too are probably thinking of the great times with the family, and all those times when you wanted to be somewhere else, perhaps far, far away from home, with your best friends.
Either way, great families are a product of trust, shared times together, and of course, love. Yikes! Mentioning "love" in a real estate article about buying a home? Yes, and with no apologies, since Buy Half A House is all about taking the love and trust family members have forged for themselves, and utilizing some of that power and energy to help each other out in a way you may never had experienced before.
