Texas is Where My Home is

When someone asks me how I ended up in Lewisville when I lived in New York City for the majority of my adult life, I usually tell them I got bored and hopped in my car one day. Lewisville is where I ended up, and I fell in love with the town. I do end up telling them the truth, but I think my fanciful version is much more interesting! What really happened is my father was diagnosed with cancer. I started looking at Lewisville TX luxury apartments within a week of his diagnosis because I realized that I just wanted to be closer to him and my mom.

I know they would have let me stay with them, but I am just too independent for that. Continue reading Texas is Where My Home is

My Husband Was Right About Moving to This State

I’d never been to Florida, but my husband kept telling me that I would love it there. He had visited once when he was a teenager. There was nothing I could really do about it because we had no choice if my husband wanted to keep the promotion he’d just been given, which was to come about with a move there. We started looking for apartments in Tampa FL one weekend when we flew out, and I have to say, I really did like the area! I never expected to feel at home there, but I did.

Ive been around mountains all my life. So, I had never been to the beach, and I really didn’t know what it would be like to live in any area of the country where it’s pretty flat. Continue reading My Husband Was Right About Moving to This State

An Apartment for the Three of Us

My husband loves to golf, so his only request when I started looking at apartments in South End Charlotte NC was to find one that is relatively close to a golf course. Since there are several in the area, I did a search on the golf courses first, because I wanted to make sure we got close to one that is highly regarded by local golfers. There were a lot of great comments about Renaissance Golf Course, so I looked in that general area for an apartment for the two of us and our teen son.

I was not worried about the schooling there, because our son is home schooled. We already knew that he was going to be in the best place to get an education, which is our very own apartment. Continue reading An Apartment for the Three of Us

Does It Have a Community Room?

One of the main things that I was looking for in my apartment community was whether or not they had a pool and a community room. While it may not seem like a big deal, if you are going to have a get together and want to use the pool then Simpsonville SC apts should have a community room near the pool. All of the summer birthdays in my family were had by a pool when I had my house. My kids are in college and there is no reason for me to have such a large home, but I do want an area that I could use when I have everyone over. I would not want to have all of my stuff out by the pool so having a place to put all of our food and our things in a community room would be best. Continue reading Does It Have a Community Room?

Atlanta Already Feels Like Home to Us

I wanted to find a nice apartment to live in, but I knew next to nothing about Atlanta. My husband was informed that he would be transferred there if he wanted to take advantage of a newly created position at his company’s headquarters, so it was a pretty hard offer to turn down. I saw a couple of ads that said to click here for the best apartments in the area, so I did. As it turned out, I really did find a great place for us to live.

The Encore is in the heart of the city, and it is absolutely gorgeous. Though it is just my husband and myself, I still wanted us to have two bedrooms. Continue reading Atlanta Already Feels Like Home to Us

Fun and Young City to Grow

I have been looking for a nice city to move to. I am in my thirties, recently divorced, and I wanted to go to a warm city in the south. I have lived through many cold winters and I knew that I wanted to move to a warmer climate. You get to a point in your life where you want a change and this was the biggest one I was going to start. I looked up apartments in San Antonio to see how much rent cost down in that area of Texas. I know that there are a lot of companies based in the city, along with a lot of younger people. There are military and research centers down in the city, so that means that there are a lot of younger people. This is nice for me when I want to go to a bar after work, or when I hit the gym, there are going to be a lot of people around my age.

I think that this is a good place to go and get a restart because most of the places that I will frequent will have people my age who are looking for new friends or people to find things in common with. When you find that you have things in common with people, you tend to gravitate towards one another. I know that there are several groups that get together from the looks of a local app. When you download it, you can find out the different things that people are doing together in large groups. Everything from wine tastings at different bars to having a group hike by the river, there is something for everyone. I think when you live in a city, this is one of the best things to look forward too, more people to connect with.

I Like Living Near the City

My mother, knowing that I wanted to move, suggested I look into apartments in Atlantic Station Atlanta GA. I was intrigued, not by the fact that I would be moving to another section of Atlanta, but that I might be able to move to an area that is close to the city but sort of outside of the hustle and bustle. If you’re not familiar with Atlanta, it’s been one of America’s fastest growing cities for quite some time now. That means you end up with all the problems of a rapidly growing city, including crime and increased traffic.

The traffic alone is a nightmare. In fact, it was a nightmare decades ago too. I’ve lived here a long time and don’t remember a time where it felt safe to drive on the busy streets in this town. Continue reading I Like Living Near the City

I Swapped Apartments with a Friend

It happens every year, my friend from childhood and all through school will come back from Georgia for a couple of weeks. His family used to live on the corner of the same street I lived on and he will come back to see his Mom. She lives in a condo which is not more than a couple of miles from my apartment. At any rate this year he and I worked out a swap and I really came out on the best end of it. If you click here you can see the place where he lives. In fact I am down here to see the sights in Atlanta with my girlfriend. So far we have gone to see two Braves games, the new SunTrust park is really close to this place and that is a good thing since you would have a devil of a time getting out of the game if you were driving. Continue reading I Swapped Apartments with a Friend

I Am Moving to the Other Side of Dallas

Of course I liked this place a ton when I was in college. The reason was pretty simple, it is a big house which was large enough for five guys to live in. That is only a great thing when you are dividing the rent five ways, which basically meant that I was paying about one third of what it would cost me to live by myself. However now I am going to look for an apartment in North Dallas, because that is where I am working right now. It is not really possible for me to commute all of the way across the city since I have to be at the office really early in the morning. Continue reading I Am Moving to the Other Side of Dallas
