It’s cold for a Florida girl

As Jason and I were planning our move to TN, we talked about what the weather would be like once we arrived …

Well … we left 90 degree weather in Fort Myers and are now enjoying 34 and 36 (as the low) degree weather in TN.

I’m glad when I was apartment hunting I chose a place that included a fireplace. Although I hoped we would use the fireplace, I didn’t expect we would be using it in May!

I have to say I acted like a young girl when Jason asked me if I wanted a fire tonight in our fireplace. It’s the little things! Um yes … would love that!

I love the sound of the crackling wood and I love how warm the apartment has become. Kimber, our kitty is also enjoying the warmth of the fire. She has not left my side since Jason got it going.

I hope our bodies become used to the cold fast ….

Let the warmer weather grace us soon.

Pictures arrived

While at work this afternoon, my phone sounded letting me know I had an email waiting for me in my inbox.

I was pleasently surprised when I opened that email because it was the one I had been waiting for since Friday …

We received a breakdown of payments, as well as our official address and apartment number for our home in Tennessee. Pictures also graced that email, nine taken from various angles of every room of our soon to be new home. I was so excited to see the wood burning fireplace in our living room, a luxury not needed in SW Florida.

Only 37 more days until we arrive at our new home, a home that has been put on hold with the simple submission of an application. To see pictures of our apartment that we will not see until we move to Kingsport the first of May was just what I needed.

The countdown continues, the excitement builds and the planning moves forward as we slowly say goodbye to a home that brought us back together, SW Florida.
