When I recently joined The Lake Team, I was asked to write a Bio for our Flyers. Here is what I wrote:
As a child growing up in Atlanta, I always jumped at the chance to go to “The Lake” with friends. I frequented Lake Burton, Lake Rabun and Lake Seed, but Lake Rabun always held a special place in my heart. When my husband and I decided to finally make our dream of owning a lake home a reality in 2015, we turned to The Lake Team to help us find our “Happy Place” on Lake Rabun. After we purchased our home, we quickly learned that Lake Rabun was all that we hoped it would be and more. We got involved in the community by joining the Lake Rabun Association, attending the annual parties and activities, and volunteering for the Foundation fundraising efforts. My whole family would tell you buying our home on Lake Rabun is the best decision we ever made. Our two teenaged children love to bring friends to the lake and we all enjoy spending quality time as a family at our lake house. After careers in Education, Event Planning, Sales, and most importantly, MOM, I am excited to now be a Realtor and use my experience working with others to help new people find their “Happy Place!”
Now here is WHY I wrote this:
A “Lake Friend” gave me the above sign for my birthday last year and I immediately hung it on our porch. Truer words have never been spoken! Our Lake House is our “Happy Place!” It is the place where we can all slow down and gather as a family. It is also the place we can fill full of friends young and old(er) and play games and laugh until our stomaches hurt. We love watching our friends discover the magic of “The Lake” when they visit. My friend who gave me the sign has the same sign hanging on her porch and she and her family love the lake as much as we do. In fact when we were first debating about buying a house on the lake, she is the one who encouraged us and told us we would never regret it. Thank goodness we listened to her!
