We found a place that is in better shape, in a town that is about the same size as where we live now, but more convenient in many ways, and that has a rent that is significantly cheaper than what we're paying now. The place we're leaving is quite small and the apartment is even smaller, and I love it. It has a good vibe, as does the town. I'm looking forward to getting there and settling in. This is a really good move for us and we're grateful we were in a position to jump on this place when it came up last month.
