So this week we celebrated our first anniversary of moving into our tiny sliver of Medina County. I recall this time last year wondering if we would be miserable after a few months (as some predicted), and in all honesty, aside from a few minor pains associated with phone and Internet service getting ramped up, we have been incredibly happy.
This is not for everybody. We would not have pulled our kids out of high school to move, and certainly, if we had school aged kids, we would have done a lot more research in that area. I can just imagine how it would have been for my son driving back and forth to UTSA and the 1604 campus if we had moved while he was still at home.
I also recall my very first drive into work from this house, and because I had not yet memorized every mile marker and every exit that I would pass, the drive seemed incredibly long. It wasn't until I had looked at my watch upon pulling into work that I realized the drive was less than 30 minutes. A half-hour of stress-free traffic.
Absolutely, no regrets at all.
