It’s Been Three Months Since the Move!

It’s been almost three months since we moved. I can’t believe we really did it! I’m not talking about moving to another house in the same town, but five hours away!

It was 2 years ago, we came to visit my cousin and fell in love with North Florida!

Almost another year later, my mother decides to move north! The nerve! I did not want to be 4.5 hours away from my mom. The kids need their Grammy, right?

So….after much planning and looking,  a lot of frustration, we made the move ourselves. But we had to build our house !

We were not able to sell our previous house, so now we are landlords too! It’s not so bad…knock on wood! I was very nervous about owning two homes, but the home builder’s finance department took their time and made it all work out.

It’s amazing what five hours north can do! I lived in South Florida for 30 years and loved it, but I really love North Florida too! It’s a little cooler here. The people seem more friendly. Oh and did I tell you it’s only minutes from the beach!!

Three months later and we are making new friends. Hunter has a bunch of friends from the neighborhood and school. He’s playing flag football and will be starting basketball in June. He’s super excited about staring middle school in the fall. Savannah has made lots of new friends as well. She can’t wait to go to VPK (pre-kindergarten) in the fall!

Here we are at movie night! They have it once a month outside! I’ve met many new friends and neighbors and we are all participating in the community activities. Just this past Saturday, we dressed like Pirates for the Famer’s Market. They had a Pirate invasion! I’ve been to Zumba, been a model in a fashion show and attended a cooking class! Yesterday we all hung out at the water park and had a great day!


If you ever get the chance to check out Nocatee in Ponte Vedra, Fl do it! It’s a wonderful community!
