Well we made it through another Winter and this is the first week of Spring.  Spring is such a great time of the year. The cold winter is but a distance memory and we start to enjoy all the things that the warm weather brings. Spring is also the time that we start to plan our vacations and any new ideas or projects around the house. Traffic seams to pick up around area lakes and we are dusting of our boat covers getting ready for our turn on the lake. We also start or should have started our gardens ( i'm a little late on that).  It is also a time that we mayTahlequah, Cherokee County, Homes for Sale, think  about selling our home or get real interested in buying.

As I have spent the past few days dealing with the Blizzard of 2011, I have realized how thankful I am to be in Oklahoma more importantly in the Tahlequah area. While the rest of the country has been hit hard by the storm,  we have had our part of bad weather but nothing in comparisan to other parts of Oklahoma not to mention the country. We are so fortunate to be in this part of Oklahoma with some of the most beautiful scenery in Oklahoma and some of the finest hunting and fishing the state has to offer. Tahlequah is not only the county seat of Cherokee County but is also the home to the Cherokee Nation. This area of the state is rich in Native American history. You can see the influence of the Cherokee culture throughout Tahlequah. In 2009 Tahlequah was listed as one the Top Ten True ...
