A question we often get asked is “where do you live”. Until a few weeks ago the answer was, well that’s complicated. Now that our house has sold we can say nowhere. After having this our townhouse listed for more than two years it was a relief to finally unload it. Well that is what I thought, that is until we flew into Minneapolis last week. The house is visible when landing at the airport, if you know where to look. You can’t imagine my surprise when I was so overcome with emotion that I started crying while the plane was coming down. It really hit me that I no longer have a home, a place of my own. It also hit me that the Twin Cities were no longer our home either. The whole visit was a bit strange, to not be able to even go over to the house. I’m sure that some of this is in part to us not having a final visit. The closing was done completely via the mail. I have not been to the house since last September.
Now that we don’t have a mortgage it does finally give us some options. Sort of wonderful to think about being able to live anywhere right now.

Strange to face things you didn’t think bothered you.
Jonesborough, TN or Asheville, NC would love to have you!
John. It’s amazing to think we could rent in Asheville!
YES! ASHEVILLE! LIVE IN ASHEVILLE!!!
So funny – I remember the first time we went back to Philly after we sold the loft and we had to get a hotel. It was strange to be a visitor in our own city, and I definitely felt a pull while we were there. But once we got traveling again, it passed quickly and I’m grateful to be free.
