I can't believe it has been one year ago that I left Beaufort, SC coastal home behind for a new adventure in North Carolina.
Even though we didn't stay long in my coastal home, I still miss my home at times. However, I am glad that we made the move and now am settled in the Raleigh area. Where I live now, it is conveniently located near top rated colleges (Duke and UNC) so there are many activities held on a weekly basis. My friend that used to live in Beaufort also moved to NC and is close the beach area so I can also visit her. I love the fact that the mountains are two hours away from my home (we love to visit Asheville too). Since Beaufort is about 4 hours from us, we can still go back and visit our friends and contacts that we made while living there.
We have been renting for a year now in the Raleigh area (we also did the same thing in SC before we actually bought our home there) This way, we were able to explore the area and find out exactly where we wanted to purchase our home.
I will be back on more details. CAN'T WAIT TO LET THE DECORATING BEGIN!
