We’ve moved around a lot, but one of our favorite places to live was in the South River Valley near Charlottesville. We built the house there after leaving our long-loved friends in North Carolina for Rick’s new job. He was then transferred to Memphis (more wonderful friends there and in Mississippi where we lived!), and we have had the house rented to tenants for years.
And this is the view from the little kitchen garden. Rick had made me raised beds here before we moved, but one of our renters took it upon themselves to dismantle them. We’ve been so glad that the rental thing has basically worked out, but sometimes unexpected things happen when you rent out a place. Still, the families who lived here–and our amazing rental agent–helped us hang on to Home.
Rick will be able to join us on weekends, and I’m sure he’ll have his fiddle out when he’s here–after we get a few more boxes unpacked.
