I am SO excited!

I just got a letter from the company that manages our apartment complex....our complex was recently bought by a different management company so, by next week a lot of changes will be put into effect. St first this scared me...I was afraid that things were going to get more strict but guess what the changes are.....



#1: We are now allowed to have whatever kind of patio furniture we want as long as the colors aren't neon or reflective.

#2: They are demolishing the obnoxious huge gate and fence that "gaurd" the property and are replacing it with a pretty little white picket fence

and #3: (my personal favorite) WE ARE NOW ALLOWED TO HANG CHRISTMAS LIGHTS ON OUR BALCONY and FRONT PORCH!!! We're allowed to put them up the first of December and they have to be down by the 20th of January.

Ask the office to have a decoration competition. The complex will look better than it ever has! So many people decorate in our complex that it really makes coming home at night a joy.

That's really awesome!!

When we first moved into an apartment here we couldn't even have a live tree! We were like...WTF! So we got this fake one from my grandmother that we called the Christmas Pole (we still call it that). It was one of those ultra "slim-line" trees. I swear it was about a foot and a half around at the bottom and only like 5.5 feet tall. But we did love getting to have any kind of tree.

Apartment complexes have such weird rules! But I am really glad for you that the new management is a lot more relaxed!

I cannot believe some of the rules! Are these apartments managed by Scrooge himself?

back in the early 90's when I was in an apartment they had patio/deck decorating contests! I actually won the first year I rented and was so proud of my work since it was my first Christmas out on my own. I won a wicker breakfast in bed tray!!
