Next week unless something unforeseen happens I'll be closing on the sale of my 1925 house in East Nashville and moving away from the part of town I was born, grew up and lived in for the bulk of 61 years.
This little town is no longer little, or quite, or like I remember. It's growing by leaps and bounds. I like change don't get me wrong but this is too much too fast. I think it's great that for the first time in my memory there is a restaurant close enough to walk to.
There are great little art galleries, shops and wonderful restaurants popping up all over the place. The meat and three I've eaten at for 15+ years is now very popular. All of this is good - great even.
But now I want slow and quite. I've heard that 90+ people a day are moving to Nashville! So I figure this is the time to sell my house and move out of town to a nice quite place. So I call a friend who just happens to be a great realtor and bam! She finds me a house. I'm the next to last house on a dead end street and at the end of the dead end is a...hay field. There are no houses behind the new house either - ahhh quite. I'm outside the city limits and that's great in multiple ways, taxes being a good one for sure. This move will move me to my final place where I'll start a new chapter of my life. Create new art, meet new friends and begin new adventures.

This will be the first time I've ever gotten to pick out where I live. That sounds odd but my Bobby already had his house and I love this house still. It took me a while to be able to leave it. The time has come now thou, I know in my heart it's a good thing. I'm getting more and more excited about this as each day goes by. Moving into a "new" house and making it mine any way I want. This has brought about many lost hours on Pinterest, but the ideas are flowing and the excitement builds. So for now it's pack and pack. Last week I thought I was the hulk and pushed a loveseat with one arm and now have much less use from that arm/hand cause I was an idiot. So I slow down now (as I was told to do) I know I don't listen. With the help of my friends thou it will all get packed.
More to come in
