We are moving to Tennessee!
« on: February 13, 2020, 11:21:08 AM »
This has been a very difficult decision for our family but we are happy to say we will be moving to Franklin/Nashville, TN this summer. Itís very strange that we attended an IAMPETH convention in Franklin and a year later, my husbandís company moved there! He has been commuting from FL for the past couple of years.

I am very excited to be moving so close to Paper & Ink Arts! How lucky is that?!  ;D

Best of luck, Erica. Moving can be difficult on so many levels, but Franklin is a lovely town, and I expect you'll enjoy it.

Oh, wow! That's exciting, and you can't go wrong being close to Paper & Ink Arts! (Or maybe that's a dangerous thing.) Good luck with the move, Erica!

Good luck with the move Erica! I grew up in North Nashville and  it was a great place to grow up. My mom always dreamed of living in the Franklin area, we would go open houses there often on the weekends.

I am so happy for you Erica. No more hurricanes and the family will all be together.

I hope you will love the Nashville area. I use to live in Manchester (south of Nashville; north of Chattanooga) and we use to go to Nashville for weekend outings to shop at the mall. I loved the weather (although a little humid in the summer) and the people and food.

How exciting. What an adventure to look forward to.

Thanks everyone for the well wishes. It is bittersweet really. We worked so hard on our home here in FL - and my studio is a dream come true. To have to leave it now is a bit heartbreaking. But I am trying not to be attached to an object.

@Katie Leavens That makes me encouraged to know about Franklin. It's so expensive - I am worried about finding a house. But I really like the area so far on our scouting trips.

@cejohnson - YES - no more hurricanes. Although we will be trading them for tornadoes. I'm not sure which is worse. At least we have advance notice of hurricanes. No advance notice of tornadoes. Might be a bit scarier.  :-\  But definitely an adventure! Thanks!  ;D

I'm envious. I dream of leaving Florida some day.

I'm just catching up on Forum news after a few weeks - I hope you have not yet moved and you weren't caught in the tornados earlier this week!

@Emilyrose  Sorry I didn't see this earlier. Thankfully we have not yet. The devastation is so sad. It also makes me really nervous to move to that area. But I don't have a choice.  :-[  Thank you for thinking of me.

@passionforwriting Wasn't that fun! My family came with me and we joke about how odd it is that we are moving there now! But we do really love the area. Hope we can see each other again soon!  ;D :-*

Hot dang!  You're next door.  My hubby's girlfriend lives there.   LOL, that is what I call his bestie, Tom.  Oh, and my bestie moved there last week or so; wonderful career move.  I truly hope it is all she needs it to be.
