I'm back..... aka, life happens

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Lake Country 284620

Its been 5 years since my last blog post.

During that time, I became a caretaker, long and short distance, for a sister and two in-laws in succession.

During that time, the COVID pandemic arose, and has abated - somewhat. Today our office assistant returned to work after a rough spell with COVID acquired during a recent trip to California.

During that time, my second grandson was born, and his family relocated from KY (400 miles from me) to upstate NY (1000 miles from me) - but the good news is that their new farm is close to where I grew up, and just 15 minutes from my beloved cabin on Cossayuna Lake.

During that time, my beloved Cubs have NOT won another World Series, but the Braves were champs in 2021, and the Georgia Bulldogs are back to back national football champions. Side note: both my men's and women's march madness brackets this year were stunningly inept.

Some things have not changed.

Life in Georgia's Lake Country continues to be amazing! And the demand for my services has been strong. One thing the pandemic taught many of us - life can be short, embrace what makes you happy.

With so much "life" swirling about, I stayed focused on delivering amazing client service. Next year will likely mark 20 consecutive years as a top performer for my company and among local Realtors(r). 

One of my goals in 2023 (besides improving my golf game) is to post more regularly on this site. Offering my market insights, local news, and discussions of what matters most when you are trying to follow your dreams - that's what you should expect to see in coming months.

Hello again!

Life is good in Madison, Georgia.

Hello Jeanne - welcome back.  Like life, blogging happens, then it doesn't and it can return in familiar as well as in all sorts of different ways.  Here's to "seeing" you as you regain your posting routine.  It certainly seems like you have much to share.

Hi Jeanne- Welcome back!!! You've had a lot on your plate but there are other priorities in life...your family for one!!!!   I love your photo and hope that you'll get back into the blogging sphere and share more of your area and your thoughts with us. 

BTW- my brackets were pitiful. The person who runs our pool said it was the messiest ever!

I especially enjoyed the competition in the women's tournament this year - back in the 70's, I played collegiate basketball.

Good afternoon Jeanne Dufort ,

Well life has a way of having interruptions and detours and your family comes first. Glad to see you are back and will look forward to reading more posts from you! FYI: You weren't along in a crazy bracket season. March madness was insane!!
