When I found out that I was pregnant, I knew that my husband and I were well on our way to achieving all of our dreams. The only thing we did not have yet was our own home. We had been living in an apartment ever since we were first married. While it is really nice, I knew that I wanted a house to raise our family in. This was just our first child, but we wanted at least two more. I started looking at Denver real estate not long after finding out, and I was hoping that we would be able to find the house we wanted and completely move in before I got too far into my pregnancy.
The only way to do that in a city of our size was to contact a realtor to help us. Continue reading
We wanted a climate that was more stable and dry year round. People suggested we move to Arizona. We went to visit off and on for about a year to see if there were any significant seasonal changes. It does get hot, but I like that. It feels good on my bones. We were moving from a place that was hot and humid to Arizona that is hot and dry. A big difference to me and helpful for my health conditions. We looked for luxury apartments for North Las Vegas to move to. We liked the Los Vegas area. We are used to urban environments, and they are the most comfortable to us.
We did not want to live in a cramped apartment. Continue reading
I needed to find a place for me, my sister and our two dogs to stay as quickly as possible. We had been living in a nice apartment, but there was water damage from pipes that had burst, and our apartment was one that took a good bit of damage. There were no vacancies there since so many apartments were damaged, so I had to look at other apartments in Santa Fe to find us one to live in. I thought it might be more difficult since we do have the two dogs, but it was actually quite simple to find what is now our home.
I work outside the home anywhere from eight to ten hours a day, and sometimes I work six days a week. Continue reading
When I was growing up, we would take family vacations to Florida at least once every couple of years. My parents just really loved the area, and they hoped to retire there one day. When my twin sister and I went off to college, they decided to look at apartments for rent in Daytona Beach to see if they could finally realize their dream of becoming full time Floridians. My sister and i were both living at an apartment off campus, and our folks were retired by that time. We encouraged them to start looking for their retirement apartment, knowing that it would be fun to visit them during our semester breaks.
It did not take much pushing to get them to look, which was funny but made us happy too. They found a three bedroom apartment easily enough. Even though my sister and I are closer to starting our own families rather than living with our folks, we still thought it was sweet that they were still thinking of us. We knew that they would put those bedrooms to good use anyway since they have a lot of friends they have left behind too. Continue reading
