I live with my college-sweetheart husband and our two sassy babies (ages three and one) in our two-story Plano, Texas home, built in 1992 in a traditional style with red brick, black shutters, and a charming front porch packed with rocking chairs. Our first viewing of it when we were house-hunting three years ago was at dusk, complete with glowy romantic light streaming through all the windows. The house felt straight out of a movie, and every scratched floorboard and 90s-liscious gold bathroom fixture whispered "home." We fought valiantly for it in a bidding war. (And lost. A couple of times.) But the stars finally aligned, and the rest, as they say, is suburban history.
