It will happen. It has to happen. For so many reasons. Some selfish, some economical. Orlando, FL is our destination. Our final destination. Not sure how or when (although we do have somewhat of a time frame), we’re going to move to Florida.
It’s not something we just thought about on a whim. It takes some reasoning to move your family over a 1000 miles away. Away from a place you know so well. Where you spent the first 51yrs of your life at. But all good things must come to an end! I will be getting away from one of the most expensive places to live in the country. Where taxes are drowning us. Taxes that will never, ever go down. It’s an unsustainable cycle. And as I’ve gotten older, I’ve grown to despise the cold, the snow and ice.
Now, I’m not so blinded that I don’t understand there will be challenges. I know nothing is perfect. The grass is not always greener. But that’s what research is for. That’s what talking to countless locals are for. We just got back from WDW. Almost every person I met, whether they rung me up at the local Publix, or server at a restaurant, I asked how they like living in Orlando. Most were transplants themselves. Every single one of them loved living there.
I am unsure about, selling my house, buying another (or renting), or finding a job. I’m taking a huge leap of faith. Like others have before me. But the one thing I’ll have, that I can’t get here, is my Disney. Yes, a huge motivation on our destination. A place where I’m very comfortable. A place that I know very well. A place I feel like I’m home.
In less than a year, a new chapter begins.
That’s it for now. See you real soon!
