Random Musings of a “40-something”

As the Marketing Director for Windsong Properties, I find myself continually bombarded with the messages of ‘low maintenance living’, ‘lock-and-leave’, ‘give up yardwork’, ‘single story living’, ‘courtyard homes’, and more.  After working here for 7 years, I realize that I often daydream of living this lifestyle.  A beautiful dream; if only…

As true members of the ‘Sandwich Generation’ my husband and I spend our time shuttling kids to school and parents to doctors.  Somewhere in between, we maintain a two story home with a huge yard.  (I also have a nice garden, but that’s my escape.)  This past weekend, after heavy storms washed away all of our fresh grass seed, we found ourselves at the operating end of garden tools, re-laying seed, daydreaming of a different life.

It’s not easy to build the dream lifestyle for our buyers only to be on the dreaming end of it ourselves.  But there is hope on the horizon.  In seven short years, we could be ‘empty nesters’.  We already agree that we will downsize out of our large home with its big yard into a cozy ranch with a private courtyard.

If your kids are grown, jump on board our dream and make it a reality for you.  Windsong Properties features two Active Adult communities with ranch homes from the $180s to the $330s.  Stop by our website and get a sneak peak at our next project located in the popular East Cobb area!

What would you do with the time you don’t have to spend re-planting grass?  I know what I would do…

Until next time – enjoy your day.  -Carrie
