MAINSTREET

This fence reminds me of the way people work together in a community. We all rely upon each other. Each plays an integral part in the structure of our part of the world - HOME.

True Story.

During Winter Break of my freshman year of high school my family drove from Connecticut down to Florida.  I read GONE WITH THE WIND during the entire trip, finishing just as we crossed back over the Connecticut border on our drive home.

There was a ‘knowing’ that grew inside of me as I read the story of Scarlett O’Hara.  I knew that I belonged in Georgia and that one day Life would take me there.

I attended college, got married, had babies but never forgot that somehow Georgia had entered my blood.

In 2000 my (then) husband was transferred to the Atlanta area and that ‘knowing’ returned to me – I was going HOME.  We settled in the north-metro area outside of Atlanta in Forsyth County.  I fell in love with the mountains , the rolling land,  and the people.

Here I remain, loving everything about this place – it’s history, it’s present, it’s warm summer nights and the red clay.

I think north Georgia is the best place to live on earth.  Some may argue.  But this is where my heart longs to be.

I will be spotlighting businesses, non-profits, community events, picturesque photo’s and stories from north GA throughout these pages.

Admittedly, there are a lot of links here!

I’ve broken things down to make it easy to find what you’re looking for in a specific area, region or town.

I look for community-minded businesses, organizations, non-profits and events to feature here.  If invited to be listed here, it’s because they passed the ‘community test’ I hold them to.

Enjoy learning more about your community and all it has to offer!  Check out the NorthGACommunity blog here.
