I Picked the Right City to Move to
I grew up living in the South, but it wasn’t until I visited the Smoky Mountains when I realized that I had found my home. So lush, green and calming. I felt like I was looking into a picture each day that I looked at the area around me. That’s when I decided to look for apartments in Asheville so that I could make that city my home. I decided that I did not want to go back to my home state, because my new home area was much nicer.
One of the nice things about the Asheville area is that it is relatively inexpensive. Apartment units are about 30 percent cheaper each month than where I lived before. And I had spent most of my adult life in my home state struggling to pay my rent each month. It was very easy to see early on that I would not have that problem anymore in my new city. In fact, I realized that I would be able to put some of the savings away for a rainy day, and then I could start saving for a new car. I had been using a bicycle to get around prior to that, and it was tiring.
When I moved into my new place, I really found that all my neighbors are super friendly. That is true of the people in most southern states, but even more true in the Carolina states. How nice to come outside in the morning on your way to work and see a friendly face from a neighbor who immediately smiles, says hello and tells you to have a great day. One of my cousins is from California, and she says that is a really rare thing where she lives. I told her that I may just have to tempt her to come move in with me and enjoy the area with me.
