let's just sell everything and move down south


last night will always be remembered as the night that we made the decision to move down south

we'll remember that caitlyn came over and we all ate tacos for dinner, and made delicious chai cappuccino rum drinks. we'll look back on the day and remember it was a saturday and that danny and I went grocery shopping with sawyer, only getting a couple things, but spent an hour in the store walking around at a snails pace, our faces stuck in dan's iphone looking at houses for sale in the okanagan.


i'll remember when dan said to me in the truck, "you know what I was thinking today?" he said, "why don't we just sell our house and move down south."

i don't know why we never really thought of it before, we've been all about the idea of waiting and saving a few years and maybe doing it then. but with the price of oil dropping, and the economy up north, now might be the best time to sell. sell while we can still make a hundred grand on our house and then move somewhere where our mortgage payment will be a thousand dollars less! umm yes please, seems like a wise choice.


I suppose these things always just happen when they're supposed to, there's just no rushing fate. seriously though, what better time in our lives than right now to finally follow through with what we've been talking about doing for years.. years! 
dan is finally in a place where he can choose to work two weeks on two weeks off, I can set my schedule up to do the same, the cost of living down there is so much cheaper, why wouldn't we??


we even found the most bad ass place just east of enderby. it's a 3 bed 2 bath home situated on a serene 55 acre plot of land (forest not flat), it has a wood burning stove, a beautiful covered deck, walking distance to the shushwap river and 9 km away from mabel lake. not to mention it's about 30 min away from caitlyn's big sisters home of whom I've known since I was like 9, and who has two young boys herself!


all it takes to make the unreal happen, is choosing to do it. we've made a choice, we've got a plan. now comes the tough part, turning this plan into a reality. and step one to this plan: go down south and check out the house. and if work (or lack thereof) cooperates, we will execute this step come next sunday!
