As the sun sets on 2023, we like to take a look back on the many highlights of a year filled with eventful events, outdoor everything, and so much newness.

Newcomers often ask what fills our days here at AP.  Well, a LOT . . . and 2023 was no exception.  We boat in the creeks-river-ocean, we porch sit, we ride golf carts all over the place, we jump in a lake, we play golf, we fish, we visit friends, we build houses, we grill out, we meet at the pool for happy hour, we walk the dog, we festival, we eat (a lot), we pickleball, we work and play and love coming home to relax the day away, preferably with one of those take-your-breath-away sunsets.


Let’s get you caught up with a 2023 snapshot :

The numbers are in

That’s a wrap

As we reflect upon this productive year, change seems to be the only inevitable constant. To those who fear change, I hope you find comfort in the old adage, “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” Change can be a good thing if it’s done right, purposeful planning and implementation are key.

At the end of the day, beautiful homes + friendly neighbors + quality amenities will always be the unwavering goal. We work very hard to ensure that Arlington Place continues to be a place that people are proud to call home.

And to those of us who crave change . . . buckle up for 2024, it’s already shaping up to be a pretty sweet ride.  The horizon is bright.

Hey there, I’m Becca. I live and work in Arlington Place with my husband Blair and kids Evie (13) and Keegan (11)... oh and our fur babies Gus (14) and Hank (4). We’re lucky to live in such a unique place and do our best to make the most of what our little slice of heaven has to offer.
