As most of you may know, Katie and I live in St Petersburg, FL. If you’re from the area, you probably also know how progressive the city is when it comes to things like buying local, art, and the environment. This is part of why we love this place so much!
That being said, you may have also noticed one of our newest sponsors, Avesta Woodlawn Park. We’re so excited to share the details on this place with you. You see, trying to find an affordable, animal friendly, spacious place to live in St Pete isn’t the easiest of tasks. However, Woodlawn Park is currently undergoing a HUGE renovation and will be St. Pete’s very first green community!
What we mean by green is they will meet all of the LEED standards, have community gardens and brand new, energy efficient everything (windows, appliances, AC etc.). Oh yeah, and they allow even the largest of pooches and will have an onsite dog park, fenced in yards, outdoor workout area and awesome pool with free WiFi!
In all honesty, if John and I would have had another month or so to hold off on moving, Woodlawn Park would most likely be our new home. If you haven’t driven by yet, be sure to head over to see them (the address is on the sponsor block to the right). You can also find more information on their website and if you like them on facebook, you’ll get $200 off your first month’s rent!
PS: If you haven’t heard, St Pete will be continuing the recycling program through another company. While I’d one day love to see this program made mandatory, it’s still optional to local residents and not as many people as expected have picked up on it. Most sites are saying you can’t start until October, but I just called last week to set mine up at our new place and they will actually give you a pro-rated price to start immediately, so go get signed up!
Here’s a little song to leave you with from one of my favorite ladies of all time. Happy Monday!
