As Middle Tennessee welcomes the crisp weather and stunning kaleidoscopic hues of fall, we must also prepare once again for the onslaught of fall allergies that arrive alongside them. 

Although thoughts of allergies may conjure spring bouquets and undulating grasslands as the main culprits, fall can actually be the most challenging time for those suffering from seasonal sneezes. In fact, ragweed, which reigns autumn, is the most common allergy in the country, affecting 23 million people in the United States alone. Mold and dust mites join ragweed to create a perfect storm of allergens that can be almost impossible to avoid.

The good news is, there are ways to protect yourself from allergy attacks before they have a chance to ruin your day(s).

The choice in buying a home is without a doubt, overwhelming. But with so many different factors, what does it really come down to? The floorplan. The floorplan of a home is what you’ll truly be living in day to day. Because of how important floorplans are, it’s necessary to really give it some thought before you’re on your house hunt (or looking into designing a new build). By thinking about what you want and need ahead of time, you’ll have a smoother search process and end up more likely to be happy with your choice for years to come. Here are some ways we like to think about floor plans and what you might want out of them:

Dogs are a (wo)man’s best friend - but are they a small home or apartment’s best friend? It depends. Most small dogs can be too yappy for small or shared spaces, and most big dogs need more room physically. But that’s not to say there aren’t breeds out there that were born for small spaces - they do exist!

We’ve rounded up our favorite dog breeds for “small home” living. Cheers to dog lovers! (Or should we say “treats”, instead?)

Greyhound

It’s counterintuitive that the fastest dog would do well in a small space, but greyhounds actually like to lounge most of their day, especially once they get their energy out which looks like a good walk or a trip to a dog park. They are also gentle and quiet by nature, so no neighbor distress here!

With talk of stimulus checks and the economy, your child may be curious about what the future holds for their finances. Teaching healthy money habits can be challenging, but it's one of the most important lessons you can share and you don't need to be an expert to give kids a solid foundation in financial literacy. Use these tips for a simple yet impactful financial talk with your kids!

Debt is either "good debt" or "bad debt." --or so we've been told. "Good" debt is that money owed for things that may assist in building wealth, such as student loans or mortgages. "Bad" debt would be things like credit cards. This is an oversimplification as the differences between "good" and "bad" debt can be better defined, thereby giving us a clearer picture of debt and how to tell what is helpful. 

Here's the rundown on debt: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Student Loans

Student loans are often necessary, as it's often the only way college education is possible for many Americans. But not all degree programs are equal when considering the debt one acquires and the income potential from that particular degree. A good rule of thumb is

Summer is drawing to a close, and soon it will be time to plant our fall selections. Fall’s riotous colors are a delightful addition to the yard and garden, provided one has a green thumb, right? Not so, at least not anymore!
