YPD: Out of all the neighborhoods in Dallas, you chose Lakewood. Why is this community special to you?
CB: It’s eclectic, fun, totally family oriented. Feels like a SMALL town but you’re in Dallas! The schools do so many things to involve the families … movie nights, carnivals, popsicle parties. It’s so fun! I love the diverse architecture of the homes, the trees and being so close to the lake.
YPD: Speaking of homes and trees, which Lakewood street is your favorite for taking in the sights?
