For those coming for business, the urgency to take care of all the particulars to make their move swift and easy is paramount. The process may seem overwhelming, but there are ways to make it pleasant. It normally starts with a destination services provider. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s easy to take the little things for granted. When’s the last time you paused everything for a song that really spoke to your soul, or went outside to just soak up some sunshine? It’s never too late to start truly living, and Earth Day is a great excuse to appreciate those not-so-hidden treasures once again.
Every April 22, we take a moment to appreciate all of the amazing things our planet provides for us (sunny days, beautiful flowers, coffee beans—the list is limitless!) and give back. So what are you going to do? Sure, you could go with a classic Earth Day activity: plant a tree or compost last night’s dinner scraps. But what if you could thank Mother Earth with something a little less messy and a little more long-term? Read the rest of this entry »
It’s just over there. It is a stone’s throw away. You can get there in a hop, skip, and a jump. No matter how you say it, it pays to be close to the things that you love. When it comes to a place to live, that includes grocery stores, entertainment, and —for people with children —daycare. But how do you really define how close something is? “Close” for one person may be “far” for another. Is time the most important factor, or is it proximity?

Picture yourself with a great tech job on the 22nd floor of a downtown high-rise. Each morning, you arrive at work eager for the day’s journey. You don’t mind the long hours because you love what you do. The pay is good and there are a lot of perks to working there. You especially like the people that you work alongside.
There is just one problem. In order to afford the house that you own, you have to commute one hour in the morning to get there and an hour in the evening to return. Traffic is horrible, and the commute itself is physically exhausting. You have less time for your family, friends, and the things you love to do. So what’s a homeowner to do? Apartment life may be the solution.
