    We found a house!
    Many of you already know that we've been working on a move to the Southern climate for awhile, pending Dave's retirement.

    We were planning things a little different: Dave was supposed to start using his accrued vacation June 15th so we could go find a house in Arkansas, come back to IL so he could retire on June 29th and then we would leisurely make our way to Affiliate Summit in Miami and then come back and move South.

    We had a bad April and May with Dave getting sick, so the vacation plans got scrapped and the only time we had to look for a house was last week during Summit, so we had to scrap that too. We were sorry to miss, but also very glad that we were finally able to go anywhere at all!

    Too late to make a long story short, but we found a home in the subdivision we fell in love with on our first trip down to Arkansas. I'll post a picture and more details later. For now - it's 1900 sq ft on one level, between 20 and 30 years old and in need of decor and some updating, but it has many fabulous features we can't wait to enjoy.

    It was hard to miss Summit after discovering how important it is to hug your virtual friends, too, but we'll be at the winter one !

    We were blown away by how beautiful it is in Arkansas. When we went down in March, it was really just to say we had checked it out. But we loved it! Lots of recreational water and the town is just the right size.

    We want to change the color of some painted walls and remove some wallpaper and the yard will be a multi-year project, but we can move in as soon as we get there.

    We've been looking forward to this day for so long that it's hard to believe it's finally here. It's so true that you get what you think about......

    Ok, if I did this right, there will be 3 pictures:

    One is the front - It's stone and frame in a subd full of old pin oak trees. We have a multi-year lawn project, but at least there's been good landscaping and sprinkler system once upon a time that we can revive.


    Next should be the 20' X 21' livingroom, with stone fireplace and vaulted ceiling. New wood laminate floor. Serious painting project in the background. That dark green is thick texture paint - almost stucco.



    This is the dining room - so you can see the decorating projects we have in our future.




    All in all, we're very pleased. New laminate and tile floors except for the 3 huge bedrooms that have new carpet. There's a walk-in closet in every bedroom AND in the garage!

    I'm pretty sure I screwed up the pictures. I have attached them here, but since they're not showing up - I did something wrong linking them or something.

    Judi and Dave,

    Congrats! I know we've talked many times about your search and so happy you found just what you were looking for.

    I'll miss meeting you for lunch when I go to Chicago every year, like we did this year.

    Thanks for fixing the pix, Loxly and thanks for all the warm wishes, everyone. We'll miss being close to Chicago, too, but we won't miss the winters at all. Before too long, we'll get a SouthCentral group trading off between Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas and wherever else we have affiliates who want to get together.

    Looks beautiful!

    Your winters won't be as cold, but you'll quickly learn that winters down south have one big pitfall: ICE. Since it's not as cold down south, ice is often more common than snow, and it's a lot harder to drive on. When it happens, just stay at home.

    Looking forward to some Louisiana/Texas/Arkansas get-togethers!

    Very nice Judi. You are in my neck of the woods now. I am close to Arkansas.
    I feel some Ark-La-Tex affiliate lunches coming on!
