What if it were possible to hop in a time machine and travel back a few decades to a neighborhood in “Small Town, Texas?” It would be a place where everyone knew everyone else (and their kids!)? The streets would be safe to ride a bike, there would be a swimming pool just around the corner and your home was a warm place, brimming with memories of great times! 

Here’s some good news. You already have that machine. It’s your vehicle, and it can take you to a real place that will forever change the way you think about what a community can be.  

Just ask Paige, who along with her husband Kyle and two boys, live in a place they love to call home. 

“When I talk about Morningstar to all our friends and family, they tell me it sounds like a dream,” Paige said smiling.  “I know all my neighbors and have made some of the best friends here. Our kids have so many people to play with and there is always something going on! “ 

Morningstar is a master-planned community, located in Aledo just north of Fort Worth.

What Factors Led to Choosing Morningstar?

In a recent chat, Paige noted, “When we were looking for a community to build our home, we considered Walsh, Parks of Aledo, and Bella Ranch. Ultimately, we chose Morningstar because of the great amenities and our ability to get what we wanted in a house within our budget. By building in Morningstar we could get the house we wanted and still have room to upgrade and customize. 

“The school district was also an important part of our decision. We want our boys to have the best education they can get and it’s right here.” 

The Aledo Independent School District is home to Division 5A award-winning basketball, baseball, and football programs and boasts some of the most top-rated schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.  

Non-Stop Activities 

“I love hanging at the pool,” Paige said. “And the Morningstar lifestyle program is seriously the best and another reason why I will never want to move!  I love all the events that Cara puts on for both adults and kids.  

“I can’t imagine what it’s like growing up here as a kid with some fun activity around every corner. There is truly something for everyone here and it makes it feel like one big family. I can tell how much time and energy goes into planning each event and it’s really special knowing someone is doing that for all of us here in Morningstar. 

After hearing rave reviews from their daughter, Paige’s parents decided to move a little closer to their grandkids.  

“My parents bought the house right across the street from us,” she said. “ I am so happy they are here and close to us and the kids. We go over there for dinner or just a quick cocktail in the evening and it’s wonderful to have them so close. My dad even started attending a Bible study here in the neighborhood! Having them here makes Morningstar’s life that much sweeter! 

“A Wonderful Place to Raise Your Kids” 

“I am so grateful for living here and the community we have,” she said. “I love that everything we need is here or at least very close by.  

“It’s great to drive just outside the neighborhood and watching the cows and sheep while still knowing I could drive 20 minutes into downtown Fort Worth for meetings or a night out.  

“As a social person married to a homebody, I also love the fact that I don’t have to go far to be social! It’s the perfect location and the perfect home for our family and we couldn’t be happier.  

“ For anyone considering a new home, if you are looking for a tight-knit community and a wonderful place to raise your kids, Morningstar is for you.”
