My dad always told me that if you are going to work, make sure you have a nice family and place to come home to. He told me that just working to get stuff was an exercise in futility. He always said it is about having a family and making a home. The home I grew up was a small house on a residential street in a Dallas suburb. Home for my wife and I is one of the nice apartments in North Dallas. We looked high and low for a place we could afford that was also going to give us the amenities that we wanted.
The Oaks is a nice place. We have a modern kitchen with a dishwasher. The rooms are amply sized, and the landscaping and the swimming pools really make the outdoor areas great. We are the ones that make it a home, but the place is great looking. That makes it so much easier to call it home. It is affordable on our salaries, and we do not have to struggle to pay the rent just to be able to enjoy some nice things where we live. We have a dining room, living room, kitchen and two bedrooms. The bathroom is just the right size for us.
It is a nice community to come home to as well. We actually get along great with our neighbors. We do not have any of the issues that some other apartment dwellers might. Our landlord takes care of the place from the apartments to the landscaping. Everything always looks so perfect. Oh, and it is really great to not have to be working our days off trimming plants and cutting grass. This leaves us more time to enjoy the swimming pools with their cabanas. This is easy living for us, and we like it a lot.
