Well it looks like our time here in North Carolina has come to an end. Rocky and I are moving back to New Joisey to begin a new chapter in our lives! We are so excited but of course it will be a bittersweet goodbye. I know cousin Mark will take good care of the homestead but we will miss living on this beautiful property and all our critters and of course my cousins!
The biggest reason we’re moving is to be closer to our families. I think Rocky could live anywhere in the world but my heart remains tied to South Jersey where I grew up. I always feel torn between New Jersey and North Carolina but we can always visit down south once or twice a year until we decide what to do with the house.
The challenge now will be can we maintain our “sweet, simple life” up there amidst all the hustle and bustle but I think we can and it’ll be worth it because most importantly we’ll be closer to our families. Of course, I can’t wait to see the beach and all of my favorite spots like Batsto Village, the Wildlife Refuge and Cape May! New Jersey here we come!
