due west, part 1

Our daughter and her husband have been happily married for almost eight years. They have been perfectly content with each other and with their careers and lives. They are blessed with many talents and many friends. And they are faithful to their beliefs, and to doing things the right way.

Beth has her own business which she runs out of their home. It is a graphic design business specializing in stationery, invitations, and all things paper. Although her inventory is manageable, it quite literally seeps out of her office and into the rest of their home during her busy seasons of Christmas and the spring.

Because of a need to find more space for themselves and her business, she and Jamie began to look for another house. They knew what area of Nashville they wanted to be in – near their current home, close to Jamie’s work, and in the zone of an excellent school – in case little ones ever did come along. It was close to their current residence – just a few miles due west, as the crow flies.

So the search for a new home began. The area where they hoped to live has developed over many years. There are some older and smaller homes with lots of character and charm. And there are some new impressive or exclusive residences that are too expensive and often not to their taste anyway. Beth spent many hours driving through neighborhoods, dreaming and looking and coming up empty. Nothing promising was ever for sale.

Then one day Beth called and asked her dad, “What do you know about a home in foreclosure?” Then things started getting interesting.

    Can’t believe it’s a cliffhanger! But, this is interesting to me too. I just moved about a year and a half ago, fortunately found a perfect home in the right place. I wish them the best!
