Well, we have officially left Toledo and landed in the Ocala, Florida area. We had a nice, safe trip down and on the way we stopped to see Terry and Jill's new place in Asheville, North Carolina. What a cool town!!!! I highly recommend it for a nice summer vacation. After that, we headed to Hilton Head and Steve and I were reminded of how much we love that area. If things don't pan out here in Florida, that is where we will head and stay. It is such a beautiful area and centrally located to so many things - - 30 minutes from the beach, 30 minutes from Savannah, and one hour from Charleston.
Steve is investigating flipping houses in Florida. The housing market is coming back and it is considered one of the top 5 areas to make real estate investments right now. I am in the process of sending out resumes and looking for a job in ministry. I have one class left in the Spring and I will then complete my Master's in Spiritual Formation & Discipleship. I am excited about beginning my new career and being of service so pray that the right opportunity comes my way soon.
In the meantime, Steve and I are enjoying what Florida has to offer. We've already been to Disneyworld and plan to go to Epcot next week. We are meeting with a real estate agent today and have already scoped out some investment homes, so we're excited about that. Next month, we travel to Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda to visit friends and family and the job search/house hunt will continue there if we don't find something here. In February we are on the east coast as the Daytona 500 takes place February 23, 2014.
Take care everyone!!
