I did it. OMG. I did it.

I took a giant, huge, scary step today.

I put an offer in on a house.

I kept going back to it time after time when scrolling through houses for sale in GA that I thought I could afford.

This house is less than what I thought I’d spend and I swear it called to me.

It is in a small town–a thing I was looking for.

I am beyond tired of big city life, the noise, the crowds, and crazy city life in general.

I have watched Allentown grow for 50 years and I was never thrilled of the changed that brought.

Yes, I love all the good restaurants, the farmers market, the theater on occasion, but life with Jay made me mostly a homebody anyway. We didn’t go out much.

I will miss my best friend G terribly but she’s only a phone call away when I need to talk.

I did get a huge surprise when my realtor friend stopped by today to begin the selling process. She valued my home at almost 3 times what I expected to get.

If she’s right, and sells it for what she thinks she can get, I will have enough money left over, after buying the new place, to make my new house everything I want it to be.

  1. I’m so excited for you ! It is always hard making decisions on your own – and Lord knows I made some bad ones after my husband passed – my motto became – I can only make the best decision today on what I know today – tomorrow could be a different story lol
