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.
