The Ever Friendly Guest Poster...

Hey everyone, it Amy W from A Family Story. Not sure why Terri asked me to guest blog as I normally do not have anything riveting to say, but I will try to entertain for Terri's sake.

I read what Frannie wrote yesterday about Terri moving without things like a house or job. But she just wanted to go, knowing that she sees a better life on that side of the world.

We did just the same thing a little over a year ago. We left Virginia, bought a house in North Carolina without me having a job and while still owning a house in Virginia (which we STILL own, let me know if you are interested in buying it). Luckily, a job came pretty easy for me and my husband quickly became engulfed in a real estate business with a team he had met. We didn't move to NC because a job dragged us here, or family was here. We moved here for a better life, more sanity, and a heck of a lot less traffic. And it was the best decision we have ever made.

So I wish Terri and her husband and her four kids the best of luck with their move and getting acclimated. Knowing how strong she is (and funny, and smart, I could go on), I know she is going to do just fine.

Now if only she had chosen North Carolina instead of Alaska....

You were very brave to move to somewhere with no family or friends. I'm glad it worked out for you.

Emma in Canada said...

You and Terri are both very brave. I have said to William that if it wasn't so hard to move to the States we should consider it, because I have seen gorgeous houses in some areas, for a price we wouldn't even get a town house for. But then I remember that there's a lot of costs you guys have that we don't and I am sure it all balances out.

My son would love to live in either of the Carolinas because he would then be closer to his beloved Hurricanes!
