I'm not sure this post counts as something that inspires me, it's more of an observation, but here goes. I was driving the boys over to a park in the neighborhood next to ours (we live in a predominantly Hispanic area just outside of Bellaire which is a neighborhood predominantly landscaped by Hispanics) and I couldn't believe just how big every house was in relation to the lot size. It looked like the houses were made of that expanding foam stuff and just ballooned up to fill the entire space. I guess it makes sense to have a lot of indoor space since the summer weather is so inhospitable. I'm sure I'll get used to it after a while but at the moment I continue to be amazed at these houses that look like they're on steroids.
