It’s no secret that I loved the time I spent living in Nashville back in 2004 and 2005. I think I realized moving back to San Antonio, while it was great to be around all my San Antonio friends and family again, it became apparent pretty quickly that I wasn’t going to be away from Nashville for long. I have a lot of fond memories of my time in Texas but, almost all of them involve family and friends. There was really not anything about San Antonio keeping us there.
Mary Kate and I were married in Fredericksburg back in 2006. Shortly after that, she gave in and agreed that we could move back to Nashville if we put together a five year plan to make it happen. I should point out here that by saying ‘we’ could move back, I really mean me. She visited me several times in the year and a half I was here but she never lived here. So, we made a 5 year plan.
Over those five years in San Antonio, lots of things would change and the thought of leaving friends and family would make the decision more difficult. We bought a house and got married in 2006. We started a successful business in 2007. We had Luke in 2010. Lots of factors came into play.
Nearly 8 years later, circumstances in our lives provided an opportunity to seriously consider a move. I flew out and interviewed for a job. The job ended up being an incredible opportunity and we made the decision, reluctantly, to move as far northeast as our southern roots would allow. The very highest point below the Mason Dixon Line to be exact.
We are now comfortably settled into our new home. Luke is in a great school and Mary Kate and I both have great jobs. Even Baxter seems to prefer it here.
I am attaching a few pictures of just what draws me to the area. For our family and friends that are reading, you should make a five year plan to move to Nashville too! It has exceeded our high expectations!
