A New Place

Here I am in Hendersonville. Tennessee. I always wanted to move to Hendersonville, just not this one. Hendersonville, NC was always my destination of choice. Near Asheville (my dream town), but not as populated and not as expensive. Of course I end up in Hendersonville, just the wrong one. However, to my surprise I like it here. The town feels "homey." There is a big lake, dad's fish with daughters, mom's watch kids play sports, teens play sand volleyball out at Drake's Creek Park off Main Street. I like the feel. Owen and I took several scenic drives up north through the farmland in Sumner County and I have to say it is breathtaking. The rolling hills, the horse farms, the old rusty barns...

I hope friends come and visit soon. I have never lived in a place where I knew nobody (other than my husband). It is lonely. Where is Teresa when I feel like going for ice cream or to buy candles that I don't need? Where is Jess when I want to play Rock Band or Wii Bowling? Where are the twins, Tom, and Dorion when I need to watch a crappy movie? I know I needed this this economy, how could I pass it up? I just have to say, it is sad that life is getting more and more mobile for our generation. We have no choice, we go where the jobs go. But it splits up the bonds we've made. Is it worth it?
