Empty-nesters often lament the transition from cooking for a family to cooking for one or two adults. As a result, too much food is prepared (and often thrown away after the leftovers lose their luster), or these individuals opt for eating out, which can wreak havoc on diet and nutrition.
Thankfully, March is Frozen Food Month (and March 6 is National Frozen Food Day – officially declared in 1984 and celebrated each year hence), and there are plenty of freezer options that are both easy and nutritious.
To Adia and Pedro, size was an important factor in their decision to move into a 55+ community. As with many homeowners who downsize, spaciousness was a big concern. But with an open floorplan and wide hallways, their new home felt like the exact right place to start their next chapter.
It’s a lovely day for a drive – either to be out enjoying sunshine, or (like these past two weeks) riding around to forget that the weather is overcast and gloomy. Seeking adventure or inspiration, you find yourself inside a model home in a Windsong community.
On your tour, you are filled with excitement as you walk through an open floorplan with plenty of windows (that make even the gloom outside look brighter!), dramatic flooring, cabinetry, and countertops that bring to mind gatherings and dinner parties with family and friends. Heck, even the bathrooms and closets are show-stoppers!
For Sherry Vining, Sales Professional, deciding to join the Windsong team was an easy choice after her experience with buying her own Windsong home.
“My husband and I had to find one-level living because he has a disability,” explains Sherry. “We visited one of the Windsong models and knew immediately that was the home we needed because of our day-to-day living requirements. When we found out the floorplan we loved the most was named Harrison, which is our grandson’s name, we knew that was exactly where we were supposed to be.”
The “retirement” of our forebears is not what the next chapter looks like for today’s “employment-behind-us” generation!
Baby Boomers have re-crafted, re-purposed, re-invented just about everything. Since this generation entered the world, they have figured out what works for them, ignored or adapted what didn’t, and invented the bulk of what we view as normal today.
On February 2nd each year, we wait with bated breath to find out if Winter will be with us for six more weeks, or if we’ll enjoy an early Spring… based on whether a groundhog sees his shadow when he emerges from his hole for breakfast.
Thanks to a cloudy morning, Beauregard Lee didn’t see his shadow when he emerged on Tuesday, so if you place stock in the prediction cast by a giant rodent, Georgia can prepare for an early Spring.
After 13 years as a Windsong Properties team member, Kris Johnson has moved from her previous title as the Director of Sales and Marketing to an executive level position, taking on the role of Chief Revenue Officer. In her new role, Johnson will utilize her experience working with the sales and marketing teams to inform strategic planning that keeps the homeowner voice in mind.
We have several new team members to welcome to the Windsong family in 2021.
I taste the morning coffee – an inspirational thing.
Winter dawn colorful one day, gray the next
In Georgia, where weather’s mercurial nature
Led us to invent “dressing in layers”
An assortment of coats, sweaters, scarves
Gloves for good measure
January is National Hobby Month, in which people remember what it’s like to enjoy having time to pursue activities, to create, or even to learn something new.
