Our Little Piece of Heaven

Over the course of this blog's history, I've gotten a lot of comments and questions regarding our fabulous neighborhood. I have been completely obsessed with our "little piece of heaven" for quite awhile now. Before we even moved, I was staking out our new home. Remember this post?

As Bobby has gotten older, and we've met more people, I could not feel more blessed that this is our home. The amenities here are fantastic, and everything is perfectly manicured, and simply beautiful. It is the perfect place to raise a family, and I would not want to live anywhere else. I remember last fall, during one of my early evening runs, how europhic I felt as I was running through our neighborhood. There was a chill in the air, the sun was setting, and everyone's homes were decorated for Halloween. It just felt perfect. This is the kind of feeling I get almost daily!

Now, with all of that being said, sometimes I feel like we live in a bubble (i.e. The Truman Show), but I almost like that aspect of the community. There is never a dull moment here, which is a blessing to me, as a stay-at-home mom. The pool, park, or trails are always full of my friends, and acquaintances. With a simple text, or Facebook email, I can usually round up at least one friend to hang out with during the day. Playtime with Bobby, errands, exercise, and our neighborhood give us plenty to do on a daily basis.

Nate Berkus and Oprah always speak of how your home should be a sanctuary for you. I agree wholeheartedly. And, in our case, our community is an extension of that.

What makes your home or neighborhood so great? Are you a suburbanite, city dweller, or country gal?

You know I love it (and I've never even been there)! Soon, I hope, though.

So funny, my Mom just buzzed me to tell me Southwest is having a sale on flights to Birmingham. I was seriously contemplating it, then I remembered I'll see you in a month! Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

It does look beautiful...I'm jealous of the pool time and tons of friends to hang out with during the days. All my buds work! :(

Hi there, what a beautiful neighborhood! We also live in the beginnings of a master planned community, however, ours was heavily affected by the economy so our pool and clubhouse have been put on hold until a certain number of homesites are sold. It is certainly a dissappointment, but I love my neighborhood all the same and can't wait for it to grow. I am so glad I found your blog, it sounds like we have a lot in common. Take care.
