Jason and I are about to start another adventure . . .
When we moved to Kingsport, Tenn., we decided to sign a six month lease – a decision that has proven to be very beneficial. Although we like the complex we are living at, we seem to always leave Kingsport on our days off, exploring other areas, but the one we currently call home.
The great part about that is we are leaning towards an area we both think is beautiful, one in which waterfalls are much closer to visit.
So, today I turned in our notice to vacate at the end of October. I’m excited about this new adventure. We have already begun the process of looking for another place to live – this time a home we can rent out in the country somewhat, hopefully.
When we first started dating we rented a house from friends that was on some acreage, which we enjoyed. Although it’s convenient to live in an apartment complex, it’s also nice to live somewhere, somewhere you do not have a downstairs neighbor and upstairs neighbor and everywhere in-between.
The next few months will be fun as we find places we like and take tours of the homes to see if it is a good fit for us. The conversations have already begun of the possibilities that lie before us now that we are thinking of renting a home. I can start a garden and grow everything I need for a salad, or ingredients for a meal. We can possibly get a dog, since we will most likely have a decent yard – that in itself is pretty exciting.
The best part, get this, I can set up an actual office, instead of one in the corner of our bedroom now. That is exciting, very exciting . . .
Everywhere we go, we are looking at houses, not just to rent, but one day to buy. The great thing is we both seem to think the same houses are beautiful – a wraparound porch and a beautiful backdrop – mountains, streams, creeks – as our view into the backyard, or front yard for that matter.
Jason and I are pretty simple people, very simple.
Tennessee is a beautiful state, one in which Jason and I both agree feels more like home every day.
