    Could It Be Time To Move??

    I am finally home from my recent emergency California visit. Thankfully son-in-law Dan made to Tennessee just hours before his Dad passed away. I am so thankful we were both able to fly right out. Dan to Tennessee and me to San Diego.  Had this been just a few years earlier Covid would have prohibited any of this.

  • Advice for Getting Through a Long Distance Move with the Kids!

    Relocating to a completely different environment can be exciting, but it also brings with it a certain level of stress. From making sure that you’ve tied up all the loose ends to dealing with the emotional aspect of leaving familiar surroundings, a long distance move can be both financially and emotionally draining.

Not only are you responsible for ensuring that you’re ready for the move, but you’re also responsible for ensuring that your children are equally ready. Below are a few bits of advice on how to make the long-distance…
