So we moved. We rented out our house to a wonderful family. For $500 LESS than the monthly mortgage and escrow payment. Yes, that's right, we pay $500 every month for a house we do not live in. And that, in a nutshell, is why we live in a small efficiency apartment.
But, wait! There's more.
We love Jacksonville. And our apartment is not too far from a nice beach, a neighborhood grocery store, and a neighborhood park. And my daughter and I can ride our bike two miles to visit the library. We love the library. Our church is three blocks from our home. And my husband's family and many of our friends live close by.
The main reason for our move, however, was Chick-fil-A! Moving into this efficiency and cutting our expenses drastically, was the only way for us to pursue a spot on the Chick-fil-A Operator Team.
We have had trials and arguments. We have been tired and stressed out. We have had tremendous fun. And through it all, God has blessed us.
