Bush House daria DriveWhen George and Laura Bush bought their home on Daria Drive five years ago, we debated over and over what their presence would do to the Dallas real estate market. Some said values on Daria Drive would plummet. Some said people would move out, fearing security issues. Others said the street and entire Preston Hollow area would see amazing increases in values (stay tuned). As it turns out, it looks like having the Bushes in Dallas helped not only Preston Hollow real estate, but the image of the whole city of Dallas. Yesterday we were filled with the five living presidents, including of course President Obama and his beautiful wife, Michelle (who looked so fabulous) but hosts of dignitaries. Yes, security was tighter than Kim Kardashian’s Spanx and as I drove downtown to Rockitecture, 12 military choppers were hovering over the Dallas North Tollway. A friend in Maryland wonders just how much all of that cost the taxpayers, something I probably would have said if it had not been happening in my home town. But yesterday, no matter what the cost, I was incredibly proud to call Dallas my home-town and share it with the world. You?

Also, this interview with Matt Lauer just got my floodgates open…
