Living in Memphis

The last few months have been a flurry of activity and travel and temporary living. Since I left California in mid-January, I have been in ten states (OH, KY, TN, FL, GA, NC, SC, AL, AR, & MS) and next week I add another one – MO. I have lived in a corporate apartment and then an extended stay hotel. I have stayed on a cruise ship and many, many hotels – mostly either Holiday Inns or Hiltons, with a few alofts thrown in too.
But this week, I am moving into my home in Memphis. I don’t want to change the title of my blog because in my heart, I am still “living in Long Beach” as I really miss all my wonderful friends out there. My friend Karen is visiting to help me with the arduous task of moving and unpacking. She is here for a week and I am pretty sure it will not all be done before she is gone but she sure is helping out a LOT. We plan to take tons of pictures and I’ll post about the whole ordeal, I mean, experience soon.
But here’s a picture of the house to tide you over for now…
Wait…did you look really closely? Did you see my new little friend under the tree on the corner???

There's no place like home! No matter how often we travel, we always go back to where we're from, and that's home. You have a beautiful house in Memphis. It's a good investment. My wife and are thinking about buying a house too. Our children are growing up and owning a house would be practical than renting an apartment. Nowadays, it's important to invest in a house you could call your own.

I agree with Erick that there's no place like home. After long time of traveling from place to place, you will soon find yourself taking a way back to your nest, especially the one where you have memorable experiences with your family and friends.

Beautiful house you have there. Just the thought of traveling, staying in hotels and living in different countries makes me excited already. You're very fortunate to have experienced those things. But time will come that we can travel no longer, and all we'd want to do is stay inside a peaceful house, have a cup of coffee and read a good book. Great to know that you have found the perfect house to live in.
