One of the hallmarks of the Boomer generation is researching everything before making a decision. Perhaps this is in part because of the ease of finding things out – the internet literally puts the world at our fingertips! - but the popularity of consumer magazines and newspapers among this segment of the population predates online searches by several decades.
Did you enjoy Fall? Or did you blink and miss it? This crazy Georgia weather is warm one minute, arctic the next.
That’s why being at home can be so comforting throughout the year, especially when you feel your home is a reflection of you - is your sanctuary - and provides the comfort you need to enjoy every single day.
Patios, covered porches, and private courtyards are among the most alluring features for Active Adults when they right-size their homes at Windsong, because these spaces provide the perfect opportunities to continue (or discover) gardening on a manageable scale.
Courtyards offer an “outdoor room,” expanding the living space to include gardening and entertaining areas that offer peace and tranquility which include flowers, herbs, vegetables, and whatever else the homeowner has in mind.
From the very first homes we built, Windsong recognized the appeal of main level living while incorporating the features we loved about the large homes and neighborhoods in which we raised our families.
With an eye toward both luxury and practicality, each Windsong home features a smaller footprint but spaces that live large, making everyday living enjoyable, and entertaining easier.
As daylight grows shorter and chilly nights stretch
And onto the sidewalks, leafless tree shadows are etched,
Active Adults put their courtyard gardens to bed
And snuggle before the fire with books to be read.
On the fourth Saturday in October each year, millions of Americans participate in Make A Difference Day, a movement which began in 1990 to improve the communities in which we live, work, and play.
While many volunteer projects require connecting with a non-profit organization or community group, Make A Difference Day can be anything you want to do that will make your community a better place to live.
Windsong continuously sets the standard for the Active Adult Lifestyle, but what does that mean? And how do we know what features to add – or keep – as we develop new floor plans and communities?
The answer is – and always has been – we listen to what people want.
With the holidays just around the corner, October is the perfect time to do a self-check regarding the non-profit organizations to which you lend your financial support, evaluate which best match your personal values, and cleaning house to ensure your dollars are used for the best purpose.
October is Computer Learning Month, which is the perfect time to brush up on skills that are essential to everyday life.
If you use a smart phone, tablet, E-reader, the GPS system built into your car, credit or debit cards at a retail store, or most any electronic device these days, you are likely using some iteration of personal computer. It is to your benefit to become better acquainted with these machines that now proliferate every nook and cranny of our lives
