I know I said I wouldn't move any closer to the university than Fuquay-Varina. I was having a horrible reaction to moving to the middle of nowhere since we've lived in Charlotte the last two years. I am a city girl. With that said, an opportunity became available to us. After a
We will be moving on to Campbell's Campus in Buies Creek, NC. While the husband has reverted back to his 18 year old self since November living in a dorm, we'll spare that experience as a married couple. There are a few houses the university offers to the staff, and we snagged one of them. It's a nice project house. We've got some renovations that will take place before we move in, and the husband will complete the fence that is in the back yard for the Bailey pup.
As for the living on campus part. I know. I never thought I'd agree to that. But the husband had some very good points. There would be no commute for him (and I'd actually get to see him more). The house is extremely discounted-we wouldn't be able to get the same sized house for nearly the same price anywhere else. And campus is gorgeous. Another little bonus? I will officially be writing from home full-time once we move. I know I was planning to try to make this happen anyway, but living on campus will allow for this to happen even if it takes a little while to replace my income completely.
Dunn is just a skip away. I got a chance to visit the town and see the house while I was at Campbell for one of the official recruiting weekends. It reminded me a lot of Boone. And I'm okay with it. It's not completely isolated with absolutely nothing. And I made it to Raleigh in 45 minutes. I can handle that.
I wish I had some pictures for you. But I do promise to take you along with all the renovations and projects as they happen! I foresee a lot of "pinned it and did it" in my future!
The "countdown" will be paused for right now seeing as I have no idea what day we'll actually be moving. But just know that I am still making an effort to do something that makes me happy each day. Today might have been starting my morning with coffee and last night's episode of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami. Don't judge me. Or do. Whatever.
