Spring - And New Beginnings

Happy First Day of Spring!

(from our front porch to yours)

We're getting excited about Spring at our house.
How about you?

If you're a follower, you know that last Spring, 
Buzz and I made a BIG unplanned move.   

Mobile Home Communities

When Buzz and I retired in 2010, we made the decision to 
downsize to a mobile home in an existing community.
It was a well-established community, so we didn't hesitate 
to make the small piece of land around our house our own.
We poured time, energy and money into a landscape that didn't
belong to us ... our decision, our risk.

Four years later ... almost to the day, 
we were told that the entire community had been sold 
and almost 300 families would have to move.

We were in shock and had some decisions to make -

Should we buy land?
Should we move into another MH Community?
Should we sell our home?

 After a LOT of Prayer, we made the decision to move
into another MH Community.

Okay, I know some of you are thinking, "didn't they learn the first time"?

Here's why we did it.

It's pretty simple ... we enjoy this lifestyle.
We enjoy the manageable green space (our yard).
We like being part of a small community
It's affordable & we feel safe.
It's where we feel like God want's us to be.

Could it happen again?
deo volente - (if it's meant to be)
Today, we're simply excited to see Spring again.

Buzz ... "The Garden Guy"
has a clean slate!

PS:  Sorry, it's taken so long to explain why we moved.  
If you're wondering how our house held up during the did great!  
Textured walls and all.

One of the perks to living in a mobile location, same home.
