My husband and I used to joke about moving south, but I don’t think either one of us really gave it much thought until he was laid off from his job. His cousin in South Carolina told him that we should move there because there were a lot of work opportunities in my husband’s field, and we decided to see if it was something we could actually make happen. He looked at the work opportunities, and I looked for an apartment in North Charleston SC. We had been there a few times to visit his cousin, and that is one of the reasons why we wanted to move there.
Everything about the area is just so much better than where we came from. It is warmer, the people are friendlier, and my husband makes more money here! We did end up moving here after I found us a great apartment at Peppertree. It is a one bedroom apartment that has so much more than what our rental house in Ohio had. The lower level has a really nice kitchen and dining room, and the living room is more than twice the size of our last living room. There is also a patio off of the living room, and it is just as wide as the living room!
Upstairs is our bedroom and another full bath. It is the only room upstairs, so you can just imagine how big it is. We have a balcony off the bedroom, and it really is just perfect. I don’t have to work if I don’t want to, but I didn’t want to just sit around the apartment all day waiting for him to come home so I volunteer at a couple of places in town. It is better than we ever could have imagined living here!
