I just signed a purchase agreement for a house in Louisiana. Still a 40 minute commute to work. But, 5 minutes from my father’s house, 25 minutes from my wife’s grandmother. 12 acres, 4 stocked fishing ponds, and plenty of pasture for a couple cows, a horse and some chickens.
Did I mention the fishing ponds? Closing in 2 weeks and my webbed toes will be back on the promise land.
