Going Home

A devoted amateur decorator, Leisa Tobler regularly visits MyHomeIdeas to get design ideas. When she noticed the Idea House Giveaway, she entered on a whim. "I entered not really thinking I'd win. I have entered many sweepstakes and contests in the past, but until now, the most I had won was a $500 shopping spree to a department store years ago," she says. The location of the house had special resonance for her and her family. Although they currently reside in Maryland (near the Air Force base where her husband is stationed), Leisa Tobler actually grew up in the Florida panhandle and has long dreamt of returning to the area. With its beautiful beaches and laid-back lifestyle, it holds many special memories for both Leisa and her husband.

"After so many years of moving around the country with the military, MyHomeIdeas has secured our dream of returning to the Florida beaches I call home," she says.

We checked in with Leisa to find out more about her family and their plans for the house at WindMark Beach.
