We started talking about moving from Texas back in 2009 – only two years after actually arriving and putting down the roots. Our hearts were somewhat in it, but what with work, opportunities and other life things putting their finger in the pie it just never happened.
Well last year we decided once and for all that we were going to make this move – we put plans in place to visit Raleigh and choose a place to live. Two visits later we chose Franklinton, just north of Wake Forest on the northern side of Raleigh. I think we made the right choice.
We have only been here two weeks and we already love this place. It’s not as if we have had the chance to go anywhere further than a few grocery stores, furniture stores, Costco, Lowes and the old faithful Home Depot – but it just feels right. Were looking forward to being regular visitors to the brew pubs and unique restaurants and events that take place around here. There is just so much for us to get our teeth in to.
As I type this we are just taking delivery of our NEW furniture – we sold absolutely everything in Texas to make this move – not for the money, but to reduce the hassle of getting movers and coordinating everything. Again, we made the right choice. A new start makes it all feel so good.
This is my first post in a long time, but I intend to make this a regular occurrence from this point on. So many things have changed in our lives, and the dogs lives. Denny has a lot of explaining to do – so over the coming months I intend to write at least one or two posts a week to get y’all up to date with what's been happening, and what's going to be happening.
Stay tuned! Photos to come!
