Moving is a bear and something I hope I never have to do again. In April we sold our house in central NC, bought a house in Western NC, and moved to the mountains.
There is a lot less traffic, less people, less stress. The scenery is gorgeous. Mountain views from every road.
The sunsets are beautiful.
We bought a home with just over 4-acres. Only 1 to 1-1/2 acres is cleared though. It’s an old farmhouse with a barn and workshop. I just love old homes because they have so much character. Also, we have a garden space, grapevines, and fruit trees.
There is a creek across the road that we have fished several times.
Another reason I love old homes is because they usually have mature landscaping. We have many, many different flowering plants in the yard and I love enjoying the fruits of someone else’s labor. This is just a sampling of the flowers we’ve seen since mid-April.
And one day we’ll have chickens and goats. Moving in has taken longer than we hoped but we are finally getting close to being done. But there is one big drawback to living in the country though – the internet is horrible! I guess I can live with that.
WE LOVE IT HERE!!
