My Pups and I Moved to a New Apartment

When my sister came back to live with us at my folks’ house, I had no idea that it was going to mean that I would be moving out. It was completely by choice, and I felt it was a necessary one too. I have two small dogs who mean the world to me. She has been around them a few times before, but not for long periods of time. When I found out she was allergic, I ended up looking at some South Charlotte apartments for rent because there was no way I was going to get rid of my dogs. They are like children to me!

My parents wanted to try and work something out, but I knew that she needed their help a lot more than I did.

Moving Closer to My Work

My folks own several coffee cafes. While they will never reach Starbucks status, I do believe they are more popular in our region than what Starbucks is. When they decided to open a new one right off I-75 in Brandon, they asked me if I would run it. I was thrilled that they asked me, and I commuted for the first few months. However, I knew that it was going to be in my best interest if I looked at Brandon apartments and moved a lot closer to where the coffee cafe is.

It was not bad at first, but then I had to start going in more often. I hated getting home and then having to turn back around and make the 30 minute drive just an hour or so later. I knew that was just the nature of the beast, and I had a few options. I could either hire someone to take care of the problems that would pop up, or I could move closer.

The Perfect Place to Start Our Next Chapter

It used to be easy looking for an apartment because I only had myself to consider. Ever since giving birth to the most fabulous kid ever nearly a dozen years ago, my entire life has changed. I no longer just randomly pick out a place to live when I have to move. I am super careful now, making sure that the place I pick is the best choice for my child now. When I accepted a teaching position at a school close to D.C., I searched for luxury apartments for rent in Manassas Park VA on my computer.

I wanted to find a two bedroom apartment that would be close to my job, but I also needed it to be in a good school district for her too. Her education is very important to both of us, as hard as that might be to believe. She has goals already at such a young age, which is why I wanted her to be in a great school district.

My Girlfriend is Going to Italy

I was dating this girl for a couple of months before I ever figured out that she had money. In fact I was a little bit sore when I did figure it out. Like any other girl she seems to think that it is my job to pay for every little thing when we go out on a date. I would think the same way since we both know that she has what I want. At any rate her grandfather owns a resort in Florida now, his retirement business. He is paying for a luxury rentals for Tuscany for her summer break and she is teasing me about whether or not I get to go along with her on the trip. Of course I sort of worry about it and wonder how many of these crazy people they have in Italy.

Having a Nice Clean Place to Live is Fundamental

Where you live should be like a sanctuary or retreat. It should be a place you can go to in order to get away from crazy work stuff as well as crazy relative stuff. Just make sure your boss and relatives who live nearby don’t have a key! Seriously though, your home should be the one place that is a joy to return to. It doesn’t have to be fancy or have a bunch of cool things, but it can help. This is why my wife and I picked the Regency apartments to move to. They do have some really cool stuff there, and the apartments themselves are really nice.

Some of you can appreciate what I am about to write. A few years ago when we first got married and were getting our first apartment, my wife and I almost settled for an old stinky place that had walls in the kitchen that actually had an oily feel to them. Someone really liked fried foods, and the whole place smelled like old onion rings and just a touch of BO. We thought we could clean the place up.

Moving to a New City

Moving to a new city can be pretty scary, especially when it is the biggest one that you have ever lived in before. I lived in the suburbs of Pittsburgh before, but I did not have to go into the city to work or anything. When I moved to Atlanta, I knew that I would be right in the heart of the city. I wanted to look at luxury apartments for Atlanta residents because of that, because I wanted to find an apartment that would be centrally located to everything I would need.

When I saw The Pad’s location, I did some research to make sure it was in the right location.
