Day in and day out, we’ve been pretty content living here on the lake. For a whole 25 years. Where has the time gone? We’ve knocked around the idea of downsizing someday as taking care of this property is a lot of work. But did I mention we are content here? Really happy. But life has thrown us a curve ball (for another post) that makes us consider what do we really want in life. We’re in our young 60’s so now is a heck of a time to ask that question.
But we all have seasons in our lives and soon we will be moving into a new one for us. Hubby will be retiring in 4 years so we’ve made the decision to get up and get moving. We are originally from Ohio, currently living in Kentucky, and plan to move to Tennessee in 4 years so we will be closer to our grandchildren.
We do plan to downsize so I will be looking for a farmhouse cottage. For fun, I went onto Zillow to see what was available. I must say that it may be difficult to find what I’m looking for. I told hubby that there just aren’t too many tiny homes in that area and I just was not going to move into any old house. Then he said something that made me go giddy. He said that I can seriously start looking in 2 years. Yippee! I’ll have 2 years to look for our cottage. He said if we find one before he retires, we’ll just buy it and we can fix it up to our liking until we move. Be still my heart!
So what am I looking for exactly? All the pictures here on this post is of a little treasure I was able to find on Zillow. And it’s just what I’m looking for…a small farmhouse cottage on an acre in the country with 2 creeks running though it and mountain views. There are fruit trees and bushes and garden areas for my veggies and flowers. Sigh. This is what I’ll be dreaming of and hoping to find in the near future. I’m excited as the time will be here before I know it.
Bless your heart & home,
