My husband has been applying to jobs in the south for a while. It is not that he didn’t like living in New York, but it was just not home. He was born and raised in the south, so when he was offered a position at the Nashville International Airport, he immediately said yes. He knew that I was okay with it, because we had talked about moving for a couple of years. We looked at a map and decided that we would look at apartments in Antioch Tennessee first.
We did not want to be right in the city of Nashville, but we also did not want to be so far away that it would take him an hour to get to work. Living in Antioch seemed like a good compromise. It was much smaller and less hectic than Nashville, but it was only a hop, skip and jump away for the times we wanted to go there. We are both huge country music lovers, and being so close to Nashville was actually a really nice perk for both of us. The best part though was it would only take him about 15 minutes to get to work even on a bad traffic day.
When I looked at apartments, I found the one we now live in rather quickly. I knew what we wanted, so it did not take long for me to put in everything we wanted into an apartment finder app, and the top result was Hickory Trace. Looking at the pictures was really nice, because we were getting such a great apartment for a lot less than what we were paying for a studio apartment in New York. We have been living here for a few months now, and we are both so much happier. This is where we are meant to be!
