RELO to OKC!!!!!

As many of you already know, my husband and I have relocated to the Oklahoma City Area.

Why?  You ask??

We did alot of research
 and can list many reasons why we are giving this area a try.

1.  Midwest Location + Warmer Climate + 4 Seasons
      We can head out on a road trip in any direction plus be back with friends and
     family in a day!!!

2. Tier Two City
      Everything we need is here!  Affordable golf, dance studios, yoga, great 
    restaurants and food trucks, Big 12 sports (not ever an Oklahoma fan), 
    shopping, shooting clubs, theater and very big churches!!!

3.  Very friendly people.  Oh my goodness!!!

4.  Affordable housing.  We are building a new home - 2100 sq. ft. - (4100 sq. 
     ft. in our last home) in a new neighborhood called Town Square. All homes
      will be1930's home designs - including bungalows, tudors and mission 
     homes. Stay tuned for more details.

5.  3 Month Apartment Lease
       We are staying in a one bedroom 800 sq. ft. apartment - even a gated 
     community with a fitness center and an outdoor pool - open all year round.

What a difference not to do yardwork!!!  
We needed rest and relaxation
 after getting everything packed and moved out of our house. 
 Then the drive and moving in here!  
We are both really enjoying this time!

One of my friends called us pioneers - moving to Oklahoma City - 
but we did not come by covered wagon.

One of my dancing friends said I would be dancing with a Bible under my arm.
Actually, no one here is doing that!!

Plus, in the last month I have made a number of quilts and will be posting pictures soon.

Stay tuned.
