Buying a PebbleCreek Home: Things to Think About

By |April 18th, 2017|

When I moved here, I just knew that I wanted to live in PebbleCreek.  The location was right, the amenities were attractive and I liked the idea of a 55 Plus Community.

Don’t get me wrong.  I love my home. […]

An Easy Day Trip from PebbleCreek: Sedona

By |April 6th, 2017|

When folks visit PebbleCreek, one of the questions they frequently ask is “Where can I go for a quick get-away?”  Sedona is always my first suggestion.  An easy 2 and a half hour drive away, the scenery is mind-blowing, the temperature is an inviting 10 degrees cooler than Phoenix and the vibe is easy and […]

Volunteer Opportunities with the City of Goodyear

By |March 30th, 2017|


PebbleCreek is full of people who are actively engaged in PebbleCreek and the surrounding community. For example, Georgia Lord is the Mayor of Goodyear and a PebbleCreek resident.  The photo above is of me and Mayor Lord at my recent graduation from the Goodyear LEAD program.

According to their own website, LEAD “seeks to leverage civically-minded […]

Helping Family Members Sell Their PebbleCreek Home

By |March 21st, 2017|

It is not uncommon for family members to step in to provide guidance and assistance when it comes time to sell a PebbleCreek property. Most of us have done it – I played that role in Wheaton, IL when my dad sold his home.

There are floorplans on this website that might be helpful as […]

Meeting new People in a New Place: The Active Adult Lifestyle

By |February 22nd, 2017|

It is so easy to meet people at PebbleCreek.   Here in Arizona, that is not always the case – particularly if you do not have small children with whom to visit the parks and schools.

Arizona homes tend to be built with attached garages that have an entrance to the home.  Most of us […]

Staying Fit at the PebbleCreek Pools

By |February 14th, 2017|


We have five public pools at PebbleCreek – two at each clubhouse and one new pool that is perfect for informal gatherings.   When I first moved here, I swam quite a bit, making my way back and forth across the Tuscany Falls pool in my version of the breast stroke.  But, inevitably, I hurt […]

Yes! There is lots of Bike Riding around PebbleCreek!

By |February 5th, 2017|

After I moved to Arizona, my first real purchase was a bike.  This is before I bought the house, clothes for the climate, anything.  I really wanted a bike.  It’s got 7 speeds.  It’s white.  I haven’t named it yet.

PebbleCreek is very bike friendly, and once I am done with work for the day […]

So Many Life Long Learning Opportunities at PebbleCreek!

By |January 31st, 2017|

I am a library person.  When we moved to PebbleCreek, we had to build bookshelves for our own book collection.  And I am convinced that at least a quarter of the 2,000 pounds of stuff that we moved from DC to Arizona was books – we certainly did not move much furniture!

That being said, […]
