MHome allows us to take a glimpse into the personality of a home. Whether the house is large or small each has a distinct presence that is unique to the owners. We have previewed many fabulous homes and before I left my post as the Editor of MLiving, I thought we’d take a look at my home.

Steve Roberts and Pat Nowak.

My husband Steve Roberts and I live in Holland, Ohio on a large lake.
