Coming up on my 10 month anniversary here as a resident of Woodstock, GA I can say that I am HOME, for sure. Being born and raised in the same 2 mile radius of NYC for my entire life, I expected complete culture shock when I moved here. Luckily, I can say, I have adjusted very well to my new surroundings and I love it here. The people are nice. The homes are nice. The schools are good. The weather's better than NY. Yes, I'll stay for awhile!
I love my neighborhood: Towne Lake. It took me awhile to understand the reference to the Loop: how Towne Lake Parkway wraps around the neighborhood from one end to the other. Ironically, or not, most of the subdivision entrances of Towne Lake can be found off of Towne Lake Parkway. For a newcomer, like myself, it made it easy to get around by myself the first few times.
There are so many amenities within a mile or so from my home that there are very few reasons to leave the neighborhood! Yes, this actually has been a downfall for this newcomer. Once I became comfortable with what was accessible locally, I had limited reasons to venture out and learn about my surrounding areas. Living only 30 minutes, or so, from Atlanta I should be more comfortable with navigating the city...but, no! Shame on me!
My staging business, ALR Home Staging and Showcasing, is based out of Woodstock, serving Cherokee and Cobb Counties as well as north Fulton. I have challenged myself to LEARN about my surrounding areas this way! While I strive to base my business locally, to Towne Lake and Woodstock specifically, I willingly accept the opportunity to serve new communities and ultimately meet more, new people! Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, etc.
