A bit more about Danijela, in her own words:
Q: Where do you live now and why do you love it?
A: I currently live in 4S Ranch with my family. 4S Ranch is located about 25 miles north of Downtown in the inland North County area of San Diego. It’s a tight-knit master planned community within the coveted Poway Unified School District. PUSD recently built Design39 in our zone, which is a unique TK-8 public school designed to reinvent education. We also have the best parks and grocery stores, toy stores and everything families with kids need right in our neighborhood.
Q: If you could have a second home or a dream home (beyond your current home) where would it be and why?
A: My husband and I will be building a Timber Home in the mountains of Bosnia next summer. We plan to use all natural materials and spend many family vacations there enjoying nature and serenity.
Q: What's your fondest memory of your childhood home?
A: As a child, I loved our family vacation home in the mountains of Bosnia. I loved our large terrace with a view of Romanija Mountain. It was a place where the whole family gathered for meals and quality time. At night, we often saw fireflies in my grandma’s garden and enjoyed the crisp mountain air. Even the stars in the night sky seemed to shine brighter and we saw many shooting stars. It was really magical.
